There are two reasons why you need to hit up Café Bern in Amsterdam: cheese fondu and entrecote steak. Occupying an inconspicuous Dutch pub or “brown café,” Café Bern serves Swiss-inspired fondue and has been around for decades boiling up some of the rillest fondue in town. Being in a country known for its CHEESE, a huge cauldron of bubbly melted cheese doused with a white wine sitting over a burner in the best way to get acquainted with the city’s culinary scene. The entrecote steak is just as good, if not, better. Slices of rare entrecote steak surrounding a pool of herbed butter cream sauce also served over a flame on a silver platter! The steak is purposely placed on the outer edge of the platter to prevent the steak from overcooking. The slices of steak are to be placed in the center of the plate just before eating for a minute or two depending on how you like your steak. Make sure you smother it in that amazing herbed butter, or you can even try dipping it into that fondue.
For our third installment of HYPEBEAST Road Trips, we continued our journey with cultural connector and creative Toon fan, Simon Wainwright, Nicole Fung of That Food Cray !!! and writer Joy Yoon (author of The Best Things to Do in Los Angeles: 1001 Ideas). We explored the known and unknown parts of Amsterdam to uncover new adventures and take a deep look into the culture of the city. It’s preserving the old with the new, which serves as the idyllic and inventive background many associate with present day Amsterdam. Big thanks go out to Warsteiner, Onitsuka Tiger and the Dylan Hotel for their support in this opportunity.
Stay tuned over the course of the next few days as we highlight food, fashion, design and more. Check for more HYPEBEAST Road Trips adventures here.
