The Worst Brunch

Looking for a nice new brunch spot this weekend? Well, here it is: Worst. Which, contrary to it's name,  will actually be the best brunch you have in a while. Mr E and I went for the first time last Sunday – note, only they're only open Sunday for brunch – and you can believe the hype. The food was fantastic. We were up early and the first ones in, luckily for us they're literally around the corner, all of 200m from our house. So I can see this will fast becoming our favourite brunch haunt.
The food was fresh and different. 'Worst' means 'Sausage' in Dutch, and by night it's a sausage and wine bar – also fabulous. I had a great take on Eggs Benedict with leak, bacon, and the best Hollandaise sauce I've ever had, and Mr E had white beans, chorizo, and egg oven bake. Delish! The staff are friendly and happy, a rarity in Amsterdam. Owner and head chef, Kees Elfring, always has a smile on his face. A beautiful, welcoming and warm environment, with great decor, service, and scrummy food. Note: It might look far on the map, but tram line #3 will take you within about 200m of Worst (last stop, Zoutkeetsgracht). So don't be a lazy bum – get out there!
