My friend took me to the Mermaid Inn last Tuesday and I was already excited because of the name! Between 5 PM and 7 PM, it’s happy hour which means the oysters will be sold for 1 dollar each! Look at the pictures and stop by there whenever you’re near!
The staff was friendly, the vibe was good and the food was nice. You’ll get chocolate pudding after your dinner from the restaurant. With the bill they will give you a fortune teller fish which predicts your mood. Sitting outside and watching people during the oysters is a must!
This delicious salad is ready between 5 and 10 minutes! Just mix the ingredients described below, a child can do the laundry (Dutch saying means: It’s too damn easy!). This great recipe comes from Zinaida, a good friend of mine. She even got her little daughter of 4 enjoying vegatables by serving this salad. The slightly salty flavour of Parma ham and sweet dates gives the perfect flavor. Suggestion: If you don’t eat or like pork, switch the Parma ham with beef carpaccio to keep the mixture of salt and sweet.
For the salad
Parma Ham ( 5 slices)
Leaf lettuce with baby spinach (80 gram)
Goat Cheese with honey (125 gram)
Sliced black olives
5 Medjool dates
2 tablespoons pine nuts
For the vinaigrette
Caesar Salad dressing
Garnish a big bowl with the lettuce and spinach, sliced cherry tomatoes, Parma ham and black olives. Deseed the dates and chop them into half. Slice the goat cheese in small pieces. Roast the pine nuts and arrange everything in the bowl. Pour over the dressing and serve. Enjoy!
