We first discovered Bussia 3 years ago and fell in love with it, eating two dinners there during our in 4 night stay. We knew we had to try it again to see if it was as good as we remembered. We were not disappointed and agree with one reviewer that it was one of the best meals we've had anywhere.
After a delightful palate teaser, we began with the soup of the day, bean soup. The flat bowl arrived with artfully positioned dollops of gorgonzola, beans, crispy pillows of pastry over which was poured a creamy bean puree. The flavors and textures were carefully designed to complement each other making for a flavorful taste treat. The wild duck was served three ways--a duck breast, duck confit rolled in a cabbage leaf and duck in a crispy rice crust. Constructions of yellow and red beets accompanied the duck. It was absolute heaven!
The service was excellent and the server informative without being preachy or overbearing. We will long remember our outstanding meal and will surely return the next time we visit Amsterdam.
Bussia is conveniently located in the 9 street shopping/restaurant district in the west side of the city and around the corner from the Pulitzer Hotel.
