It happens to the best of us. And sometimes it is more than an exception, which I honestly do understand too. I’m talking about midnight cravings. And not those tiny-winy cravings but rather those cravings that sincerely can keep you up all night.
Luckily, my very beloved city facilitates all kinds of people with all kinds of cravings, at all times. Last August, Cannibale Royale opened its doors in my neighborhood, just right around the corner of my home and quickly became my go-to place for those strong carnivore cravings.
Never change a winning team: a well-known saying, that Cannibale Royale truly believes in. With a total of now 5(!) venues throughout Amsterdam, Cannibale Royale is what they call a definition amongst the true carnivores. The concept is rather straight forward: they serve some great meats from the fire like some juicy burgers, salty steaks and good ol’ ribs, in combination with exotic craft beers, creative cocktails and lovely wines. It’s nothing too fancy, more like the opposite really.
The setting somewhat feels like a mancave, in the best way possible. Cannibale Royale calls it the result of macabre mancave crossing a chic French brasserie. It is dark, cosy, and a great place to let your hair down and feed your appetite.
Throughout the week, this bold place serves food and booze till 1AM and during the weekend, Cannibale Royale is open till 3AM. And if you are already looking to get into the mood, you might want to check their playlist on their website. They are quite into some good jams during dinner!
So, in Cannibale Royale’s words: dig in and drink up. Cheers to a great one folks!
1016 NH Amsterdam
