Hotspot: Dara in Amersfoort
Hi guys, welcome to my new hotspot post about restaurant Dara in Amersfoort! A couple of years back I went here with some friends, but this time my boyfriend took me here to celebrate my birthday. So sweet!
Dara is a very nice cosmopolitan meeting place next to the Eemhaven (The Eem Harbor) of Amersfoort. Modern, metropolitan and yet romantic! They serve a lot of different small dishes from all kind of regions. For me the dishes had a very Moroccan vibe (just like the interior by the way!), so cool! I’ve never seen a restaurant like this before.
This restaurant is daily opened from 11:30 AM till 00:00 PM.
Grote Koppel 5
3813 AA Amersfoort
Dara is located in the big white and grey building. You can even enjoy the on their own terrace.
What did we order?
Daniël and I started of with a very nice cappuccino, because we were a little bit early. That wasn’t a problem luckily.
After a while of studying the menu we finally went for the Dara Deluxe Menu. Within this menu you get surprised with selected mezzes (little dishes/tapas) by the chef. The mezzes were categorized as ‘starters’, ‘main dishes’ and deserts.
Our starters contained a lovely couscous salad, a beets and goat cheese salad and a crayfish salad. They came with bread on the side, a very nice way to eat the salads.
Our main dishes were a Rendang Daging (pot roast), gamba’s with spinach, cassava and a paprika sauce. But also a Sigara börek (filo dough filled with feta en spinach). The last dish was very heavy on the stomach.
Unfortunately I forgot to take a picture from the deserts. We both got the Chef’s dessert. I hope you like this hotspot just as much as I do.
