Most beautiful terraces in Maastricht

Which restaurants have the most beautiful terraces in Maastricht? Maastricht is the city to be if you want to enjoy the Burgundian life. Lucky you if you live in this beautiful city, but it is also the perfect destination for a weekend break or a holiday in your own country . Enough to experience and it often feels a bit like being abroad. The capital of Limburg has many nice terraces to enjoy a snack, a drink and to catch maximum sun along the Maas. We recommend the best places for your next drink in Mestreech.

Most beautiful terraces in Maastricht

1. Lure

This nice restaurant with a cozy terrace is located in the center of Maastricht, but in a neighborhood where not many people come. So if you don’t want to sit in the middle of the hustle and bustle, you’ve come to the right place. Moreover, on the way here you will pass beautiful places of the city. There are delicious fine dining specialties on the menu, which you can indulge in. You are always among the locals , so you know for sure that you are in the right place!

Restaurant Lure, Grote Looiersstraat 7, Maastricht

2. Bistro Bar ‘t Wycker Cabinet

This trendy restaurant is the place to be if you want good food. Start your day with eggs royale, pain perdu or freshly baked banana bread. Settle down here for a fresh salad, club chicken, various tasty sandwiches and croquettes de maison for lunch. Or try one of the classic bistro dishes from the French kitchen for dinner. In any case, you will never go home hungry here.

‘t Wycker Cabinet, Wyckerbrugstraat 29b, Maastricht

3. Noon

This is perhaps the most handsome terrace in town. Noon is located right next to the river Maas and is without doubt the sunniest terrace in Maastricht. Enjoy lunch, dinner or drinks here from 12 noon. cheers!

NOON, Griend 6-7, Maastricht

4.Country estate Slavante

You have to get out of the city for a while and go up the Sint-Pietersberg, but then Slavante is also perfect for you. Enjoy the view, the peace, nature and the delicious snacks.

Country estate Slavante, Slavante 1, Maastricht

5. Cafe South

Café Zuid is located in the youngest part of Maastricht Céramique (the architecture district). A wonderful spot with a great terrace on the water, overlooking the Maas, the residential towers of Céramique and the Charles Eyck park. Get that ultimate holiday feeling in one of the beach chairs, while you order another round of tapas.

7.In den Ouden Vogelstruys

In den Ouden Vogelstruys is one of the most famous restaurants in Maastricht. The old business is located right in the center on the Vrijthof in the city. You have a beautiful view of the ‘churches twins’ (the Sint-Janskerk and the Sint-Servaas) and the square. You can enjoy a nice drink, lunch, dinner or local specialties.

Fun fact: the map is written in Maastricht dialect. But don’t worry, the friendly service will always help you with this.

Imagine yourself abroad on the lovely terrace of La Canasta. You can enjoy tasty tapas with a view of the Maastricht skyline on this sun-drenched terrace on the Maas. Here you can order tapas with a twist. Which means that the menu also has dishes based on Burgundian, French or even Asian cuisine.

La Canasta, Cörversplein 9, Maastricht

9.The Governor

Are you a fan of specialty beer? Then you should definitely take a look at the specialty beers on offer from De Gouverneur. On a sunny day you can relax to the maximum on this spacious terrace!

The Governor, Boschstraat 105a, Maastricht

10.Cafe Chic

The terrace of Café Sjiek is located between the trees, so you will find the perfect mix of sun and shade. Chic has been a household name in Maastricht since 1982 and is popular among both residents and tourists. Try the creamy leek soup, the Pasta Zafferano or one of the typical Limburg meat dishes from the ‘Classy card’.

Artificial chicken meat produced

Food technology company Upside Foods will soon introduce chicken meat produced in bioreactors using real animal cells to the US market.

Only two steps remain for the sale of artificial chicken meat approved by the US Food and Drug Administration
Upside Foods will soon be able to offer chickens made from real animal cells produced in bioreactors in the US.

According to the news of Wired, the decision taken by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is seen as the next important milestone for the artificial meat industry. So far, small-scale production facilities have raised billions of dollars to experiment with artificial meat production; however, it could not sell these products to the public.

The few people invited to try artificial meat had to sign a disclaimer acknowledging that the products were still experimental. Now there are only two small regulatory steps left before the introduction of artificial meat to the public.

TWO STAGES LEFT FOR SALE

Upside needs an inspection approval from the U.S. Department of Agriculture for its manufacturing facilities and an inspection mark for the food to enter the U.S. market. It is anticipated that these two steps will result in rapid results.

“This is the moment we’ve been working on for nearly seven years. Expanding into the US market is what every company in the world is trying to do,” Upside CEO Uma Valeti said in a statement.

While Upside Foods is focused solely on chicken, different startups are working on many different products, including beef, chicken, salmon, and tuna.

IT CAN BE TASTE IN RESTAURANTS FIRST

The FDA’s decision means that artificial meat products may soon be available to the public to try, but tastings will likely be limited to a select few restaurants. Michelin-starred chef Dominique Crenn has already announced that Upside Foods will serve chicken produced at her restaurant, Atelier Crenn, in San Francisco.

Valeti said he wants the public to taste Upside chicken for the first time through select restaurants before buying it and cooking it at home.

“CAN’T DISCRIMINATE FROM REAL MEAT”

“We wanted to get this to people through the chefs in the first place. It’s really important for us to get the chefs excited about this. We want to work with the best partners who know how to cook well and also give us feedback on what we can do better,” said Valeti.

Unlike plant-based meat, artificial meat contains real animal cells and is theoretically indistinguishable from real meat itself. Cells are initially taken from an animal and then transformed into cell lines that are frozen. Small samples from these cell lines are then transferred to bioreactors (usually large steel tanks) where the cells are fed with growth medium containing the nutrients the cells need to divide. Once the cells have grown and reached sufficient tissue type, they are ready.

It will be sold for 17 dollars per kilo.

It is thought that the market and restaurant sales prices of the meat, for which the facilities will produce half a kilo for 17 dollars (approximately 317 lira) in the future, will be much more expensive. Due to this price, it is stated that the first artificial meat products offered to the public will likely be a mixture of animal cells and plant-based meat. On the other hand, it is stated that the widespread production of artificial meat at affordable prices will be 10-15 years later.

What is the famous Dutch dish Kibbeling?

Kibbeling is a popular Dutch street food consisting of pieces of fish dipped in batter, deep-fried and served with a dipping sauce such as garlic sauce, remoulade, ravigote or whiskey sauce.

In the Netherlands it is mostly consumed as a snack, but it can also be prepared for dinner with french fries, fresh salad and a sauce of choice.

What is the famous Dutch dish Kibbeling?

Kibbeling is one of the most popular fish products in the Netherlands. And no, Kibbeling does not swim in the sea. Kibbeling is not a type of fish, but a product with a long Dutch tradition. This real Dutch snack is made from pieces of sliced ​​white fish, which are dipped in a batter and then deep-fried.

How did the Kibbeling get its name?

The name kibbeling originated from the name ‘cod cheek’, because the kibbeling used to be made from this. Cod used to be (in the 19th century) an important component of food in the Netherlands. And these cheeks were then prepared in a batter with herbs. Nowadays, kibbeling is no longer made from cheeks or just cod, but from different types of white fish such as polak, hake, whiting and saithe.

You can also easily make kibbeling yourself:

For 2 portions you need:

400 grams of cod fish
10 grams of fish herbs
1 egg yolk
100 grams of flour
150 milliliters of milk

Cut the cod into pieces (+/- 4 cm) and sprinkle with half of the fish herbs and some salt and pepper. Toss the pieces well. Make a batter of the flour, egg yolk, rest of the fish herbs and milk. Dip the pieces of cod well into the batter so that everything is covered. Fry the kibbeling until it is nice and golden brown and let it drain.
