The Food

One of our next visits of Spaans Dak was on 13/04/2012. We chose the “Asparagus menu”:


Salmon triptych, confit asparagus, orange butter,
roasted sunflower seeds
A fresh but salty dish to start with, sweetened with the orange butter.

*** Sautéed duck liver, caramelized asparagus,
tonka beans (*** suppl. 12 / with wine 16)

Special, greasy dish with nice sweet accents.


Duck breast, asparagus, asparagus gel, butter purée,
cep-flavoured mousseline, balsamic caviar

Duck is always a winner for me, and yes, it was tender inside and crispy on the outside.


Café glacé: dulche de leche, scorched marshmallow, cinnamon ice cream, coffee gel, Kahlua yolk

A nice “dual dessert”, a little bit sweet though.


Selected English cheeses and their preparation (suppl. 6)

As usual, I really like the presentation of their cheeses… Bombastic!

Coffee & sweets

The Wines
