Before a full year has gone by, I really must post photos, however blurred, of the fabulous dinner we had at this excellent Indonesian restaurant in Amsterdam for my birthday last February. Our friend Louise is back in the Netherlands for the winter, so I'm overcoming my inertia just in case she does make the trip from Haarlem to sample what is lauded as the finest Indonesian cuisine in the country. Warning: be sure to make an advance booking.
After nine months I don't remember what we ordered, only that everything was delicious. Here's a link to the menu: http://restaurantblauw.nl/menukaart-amsterdam/#6
