Meat and beer reign supreme at Cannibale Royale. Located in Spui Square, this brasserie serves a market-driven menu of European cuisine with barbecue influences. While the salad offerings and sides don’t disappoint, the heavy-hitters here are a carnivore’s fantasy, particularly the infamous L’Absurde -- a 1,000gr serving of steak requiring 24 hours’ notice on your end so that the kitchen can prepare it. Also, from the sharp knives on each table to the dim lighting -- not to mention the grandfather clocks and macabre puppets hung about the walls -- you might want to leave the kids at home.
