It’s all in the name really… ‘Stout’ means naughty, bold and daring in Dutch, which is exactly what this place is. Nick: “They serve some cheeky platters, offering a wide range of flavors. Apart from those platters, I would definitely also recommend the ‘Cote du Boeuf’, it’s so delicious.”
Nick lives just around the corner from Stout, resulting in him visiting them quite frequently. Nick: “I used to work there, before I started at Canvas, so I often pop by for a coffee or a lunch. You can spend hours just watching all the different types of people walking by. It’s a neighbourhood where everything from rich & extravagant people, homeless vagabonds and junkies walk side by side. I like this contrast and acceptance.”
Nick is one of our talented chefs in Canvas. This charming Dutch fellow has been with us from the start, working hard to feed our guests’ hungry bellies every day.
Having traveled for a whole year (!) in South East Asia, he has brought a lot of their flavors back home and interpreted them in his own recipies. Nick: “My passion for cooking really grew during that trip. Especially their fish.. cooking-wise, you can do beautiful things with that animal.”
