Well, thought it was about time to write another food-related post. So, here a lil’ something about my latest discovery. Last week I had lunch at Venus & Adonis (finally) and I loved it!
Venus & Adonis is the perfect little bar and grill, located a short walk from the hotel, on the Prinsengracht 274. The interior is overall classic, with a modern touch. Using lots of dark wood, velvet, vintage tiles and soft yellow/blue colors. This makes it a super warm and friendly place, which also breathes some sort of luxury.

At Venus & Adonis they serve lunch and dinner, the kitchen opens at noon to prepare you some great burgers, pita’s or salads. At V&A they specialize in surf & turf, or in other words the combination of seafood and red meat. This in my mind, I couldn’t resist the S&T burger. A perfect burger, with an amazing ‘black tiger’ shrimp on top! Also the Thai Chicken pita was really good.

So, unfortunately we didn’t have dinner yet. But looking at this experience and the menu, I am pretty sure this will be just as delicious. All mains have an S&T option, adding some seafood items to year dish. This way you can combine your perfect dish. Also the platters look amazing, as you know I am a big fan of sharing food.
Yum, have to plan a new dinner date I guess.
