At our Instock restaurant in Amsterdam, our chefs manage to create the most delicious dishes from food surplus! Our chefs created a permanent menu for this sunny season. How about our cauliflower-power? Or Brussels sprouts that our chefs transform into kimchi? If you don’t eat meat or fish, that’s no problem. We always serve a vegetarian menu as well! You can also call for other dietary requirements; our chefs love to help you out. CARD PAYMENT ONLY
