Cafe Morlang - Amsterdam

I was absolutely shattered after returning to Amsterdam yesterday, and the last thing I wanted to do was cook. So I wandered for a few minutes in the shops and then I decided to get something to eat.

I came across Cafe Morlang on Keizersgracht, which looked quite nice from the outside. When I saw a wagyu beef burger advertised on the menu, my mind was made up. You enter through a heavy velvet curtain into a nicely relaxed atmosphere. Music is playing in the background and apparently there is also wifi on offer.

The menu at Cafe Morlang is intruiging with mixed cusines, but I did order the beef burger which came with thick-cut fries and a big serving of hollandaise sauce. The burger was weirdly soft and loose, kind of like a gently-fried steak tartare. Any taste that it may have had was overshadowed by the slightly burnt taste from the accompanying bun. Fried mushrooms decorated the top. At €16+ I must admit that I was a little disappointed.

I followed up with a Mexican coffee (tequila and kahlua) which was more than rich enough to send me shuffling off home all happy.
