Dinner at Kartika Indonesian Restaurant in Amsterdam

Yesterday we had dinner at an Indonesian restaurant called Kartika.

If you read my blog yesterday, you know that the rain was pouring down when we entered this small restaurant at about 4:15 pm. We were hungry after our train trip to Amsterdam, dizzying walk/tour through the Late Rembrandt exhibit in the Rijksmuseum, and brisk walk dodging the cars, bicyclists, and raindrops from the museum to the restaurant.

The kind owner would not ("Nay, Mijnheer") allow us to sit and wait for the restaurant to open at 5:00 pm, so we went next door to Starbucks for coffee/ hot chocolate.

Most folks I know would have found another place to eat, but we waited patiently at Starbucks and went back to eat Indonesian at 5:00.

Before

Cute rice bowl.

After

We ate it all! Just the right amount of food for the two of us.
Restaurant was cold ( probably because we were too early!!).
Plates were cold.
We had to eat quickly while the food was still warm.

Will we go back to Kartika? Hmmmm.

Probably Not!

Well, at least now you won't wonder what you missed (had you gone someplace else). You did a good job of "cleaning your plate" as my mother would have said. Happy weekend to you- xo Diana
