De wankele tafel

The other day, I had to celebrate some good news with people, I found some explanation for my work and as I was so excited that we went for dinner to De wankele tafel (in English: the wobbly table). This place is small, cozy and humidly warm. They have around eight tables, a counter and a small kitchen. In my view, the place is run by a Dutch couple, but I am not sure about this fact. He was cooking amazing dishes in the kitchen and she was serving them with sympathy and delicacy. The menu is simple but rich. I ordered the soup of the day which consisted of parsnip with a touch of mustard, great combination of flavours. As main dish I ordered the plate with sate temphe, curried lentils with rice and a baked banana. The portion is was big so if you are not so hungry, it can perfectly be shared by two. And later, I ordered a haverklap (the name is derived from the Dutch expression: om de haverklap)  which is a slice of oat cake as dessert. Ouhh that was really good, it had a crunchy crust, nice applesauce taste and a big hint of cinnamon.
