Moeder's Moiste in Amsterdam

Moeder's, recommended elsewhere on this site, has a big branch on Heinekenpleine in DePijp, in a new commercial square built on the site of the old Heineken Brewery. The cooking is very down-home, with a big menu of traditional Dutch selections. The highlight for me was the beef hachee - stewed beef so tender it had to be served with big spoons. The merguez sausages were also very good. And in keeping with the theme of the restaurant, there were plenty of vegetables - good broad beans, very sweet red cabbage, and excellent grilled eggplants.

Moeder's Moiste means "mother's favorite", and regular patrons of the original Moeder's have donated the mismatched plates and cutlery here, as well as the photos of their mothers which line the walls. There's plenty more bric-a-brac and old furniture filling the space - even though it's only a year old, it looks like it's been here for decades.
