Favorite Restaurant in Düsseldorf: Nooij
Nooij Düsseldorf

The 8th of May 2011? We remember that beautiful day as it was yesterday. It was the start of J and F, JAF. Three years later, we wanted to celebrate our anniversary with a nice dinner. Place to be was Nooij (to pronounce as the German worth 'neu'), from owner Nene Nooij. Nene calls himself a European with his Dutch, German and Spanish background. He opened his Scandinavian/sixties-designed restaurant in Düsseldorf, Flingern, where he brings a healthy international kitchen. Yummy! Since it's asparagus season and we absolutely love this delicious vegetable, we decided to go for an asparagus creme soup as a starter. De-li-ci-ous! Later onwards the food party continued with an asparagus/walnut pie for J and a strawberry/asparagus/tuna salad for F. You can be very sure: our plates were quickly empty. When browsing through the menu, we also took a quick look at the breakfast specials. Here you can clearly see the different international influences that Nooij has. When ordering a Dutch breakfast for example, you get vanilla custard, sprinkles, gouda and bread with peanut butter. When going for the Spanish treat, you can be sure of getting deliciously baked chorizo, manchego and fried eggs . If we can get up early enough, we'll definitely try this out on Sunday morning. Very recommendable restaurant! JafJaf!
