An Early Dinner at Brasserie &Zo in Houten

Last night I met my friend Marjolein in Houten for an early dinner and a movie.

Houten is just outside Utrecht. It's has a sleepy suburban feeling to it and a really good movie theater. It is called the CineLounge - quite an apt name too since it has big comfy seats and no break in the middle of the movie (yay!). They also have a snack service where you press a button and a waiter comes to your seat and you order your snack right there and then!

We saw Bridesmaids and it was excellent. Really. Something totally different than you would expect. Go and see it!

But I digress, we had our dinner at Brasserie &Zo. It is a two minute walk from the movie theater in Houten.  The brasserie is lovely little restaurant, very tastefully decorated with excellent food.

We were a rushed for time so unfortunately we could not have a three course meal, but decided we had to have a main and a dessert.

I had the Chicken Fillet with potatoes, baby corn and a dragon herb sauce. Marjolein had a beautiful steak with chicory (witlof) and a potato layered "tart". Both dishes were delicious! Beautifully executed and very tasty.

Dessert was the perfect ending to the meal. I had a creme caramel with espresso foam and biscotti, Marjolein had the white chocolate parfait served with a puffed rice and chocolate square... simply divine.

All in all a lovely evening with good food, a good movie and above all really good company.
