The best seafood restaurant in Amsterdam is Eénvistwéévis, a tiny cafe located a stone’s throw from Het Scheepvaartmuseum, The National Maritime Museum. Chef Klaas has spent decades developing relationships with local fishermen.
The salty old fish men show up every morning at the chef’s backdoor. Klaas carefully selects the best, freshest fishes on offer then begins the hard work of butchering them to prepare for the evening service.
In spring of this year I was hanging out with chef in his restaurant when he proposed that we take a long journey through the canals of Amsterdam on his small runabout. I immediately agreed and filed this report.
