A Restaurant surrounded by Contemporary Architecture

Let me show you my favourite restaurant in Almere Stad.

One of my great pleasures in this city: to sit down in Bobbie Beer 's terrace, enjoying the sun and the view of the Weerwater lake, eating a delicious boerenomelet. Also one of my Dutch spring favourite moments!

Yes, I begin to have my routines here ;-) My first year in the NL was "The discovery year", the second one was the "Sandra's between two worlds year", the third has been more relaxing. Yes, I've been feeling at home for some time now: with my favourite places and rituals ;-)

A Restaurant surrounded by Contemporary Architecture

If you enjoy a restaurant with a beautiful lake view, surrounded by exquisite Contemporary Architecture, Eetcafe Bobbie Beer is the place to go.

This restaurant is located in the heart of the city, in front of the Weerwater Lake, De Kunstlinie [Almere's Theatre and Cultural Centre] designed by the japanese architects Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa [SANAA, Tokyo, 2006] and the Utopolis Cinema, designed by the Dutch architect Floris Alkemade [OMA, Rotterdam, 2005].

The restaurant is situated in the Lakeside, a building of the architect Bjarne Mastenbroek [SeARCH, Amsterdam, 2007].

From Almere (III)

The surrounding area, De Citadel, a unique contemporary city center in the Netherlands, was designed by Christian de Portzamparc [Atelier Christian de Portzamparc, Paris, 2006].

The Food

Bobbie Bear meat is top quality: the beef is from the South American Pampas and the green Irish meadows, the lamb is from New Zealand, the pork and the chicken are from the Netherlands and Germany.

However, if you want to eat something typically Dutch, you should ask for “Boerenomelet” [Peasant's omelet], generally an omelet with onion, pepper, celery root, carrot and mushrooms [only available for lunch]. The price is very affordable: € 7,25.

The restaurant is decorated with teddy bears: Beren.

The Terrace

On a sunny day, we can enjoy the terrace and watch the boats and the swans in the lake.

A Restaurant Chain

Bobbie Beer is part of a restaurant chain. You also find a “Beer” in several Dutch cities like Rotterdam, Eindhoven, Tilburg, Breda and Dordrecht, for example. You should look for the nearest one on their site.

Aprovadíssimo, sob todos os ângulos! :) Parece ser mesmo uma óptima opção para sunny days!
Venho também dizer-te que aceito o teu desafio de fazer uma "reportagem" sobre Braga. Não prometo que seja no imediato, porque ando afogada em trabalho, mas a promessa fica feita.
Obrigada pela sugestão e fica bem, com beijinhos de cá!:)
