P.King, Amsterdam

P.King is a modern, funky bar located at the corner of Herengracht and Vijzelstraat. Or wait.. is it a Chinese restaurant? It's a glorious concept. Settle down for some beers and when the munchies kick in, you can order some Chinese food. Downstairs is bar-like, while upstairs is more restaurant-like.

The menu is cleverly arranged with a good selection of starters, followed by main courses which are available in small and large sizes. We shared a mixed platter of starters (all delicious) which we then followed with two small main courses. Although we weren't keen on the lemon chicken (gloopy without a real lemon bite) or the roast pork (just roast pork, no flavouring), there was the added benefit of getting a bowl of rice as a side dish. I think we just chose badly, as other dishes coming out from the kitchen looked and smelled delicious.

I think that I've found an ideal spot in P.King for mixing beers and nibbles. Additionally, there is a nice selection of seating outside facing onto Herengracht, so this place is bound to be popular in summertime.
