A pearl in the, so called Eenhoorngebied (Unicorn area), you can find the national monument De Vergulden Eenhoorn. This old farmhouse from 1702 is situated in a tiny green area in the middle of east. Chris: “The sound of passing airplanes is the only thing that reminds you of being in the city.” You’ll find Chris at De Vergulden Eenhoorn any season of the year. In the winter his favourite spot is in front of the fireplace. And during summer he’s enjoying the sun and drinking his beer at one of the picknick tables.
One of his best friends works at De Vergulden Eenhoorn. In the beginning Chris only came to the place after closing hours to have drinks with the crew. Soon enough he knew the best dishes on the menu. His all time favourite dish is the ‘côte de boeuf’. It’s one of the specialties of the chef.
Chris: “I really like the look and feel of the place” The restaurant is decorated with a lot of wood and they paid a lot of attention to details of the construction of the old farmhouse. Throughout the year they organise a variety of events. From a Spanish Sangria Party to a French Jeu des Boules event.
Chris is a real people person. He finished his Master Geochemistry in Eindhoven, two years ago. He needed a new challenge in life. That’s why he moved to Amsterdam and started working at Canvas restaurant at the top floor of the hotel as a shift leader. He fell in love with Amsterdam and he loves to stay here. For now.
Chris considers himself a foodie. He loves to explores new eateries. Chris: “Home cooking is something I’m not familiar with”. Luckily the chefs of Canvas provide him with a nice meal every day. So if you’re looking for a nice place to eat, go and find Chris and let him show you the way.
