De Struisvogel

Bistro in Western Canal Ring

This former basement kitchen to some large canal houses offers great value. The bird (struisvogel means 'ostrich'), served with butter-poached pear and port, regularly stars on the menu alongside a nightly rotating menu of local, mostly organic, produce such as hazelnut-crusted Jerusalem artichoke, goat's cheese and white-truffle pie, and lemon-and-raspberry cheesecake with lavender sauce.
