Truly the adjective that describes Worst Wijncafé is “best”. With wine, cocktails, cheese, charcuterie and of course sausage, Worst is sure to satisfy.
Worst is just the most brilliant name. You can’t help but think of antonyms, and of course the first that comes to mind is “best”.
We enjoyed the laid back, semi-rustic interior where you can sit at the bar and watch the chefs at work. But even more so we enjoyed the worst! We sampled the chorizo, which at first nibble was obviously handmade with care. Delicately spiced, it was served with braised peppers and fennel. Next we tried the lobster sausage, which sounds a bit unusual. It was simply amazing, flavored with Italian herbs and served with roasted tomatoes. Worst also provides recommendations for wines to pair with each dish.
As we perched near the bar we saw several platters piled with a variety of charcuterie and cheeses headed to other diners. We had to order that as well and swooned over the salumi, especially the freshly made paté.
Portions appear small but are quite filling. Between the two of us we probably could have devoured four dishes, but three would have been enough for a light-ish meal.
Next time you are craving some carefully chosen wines and handmade sausage, visit Worst Wijncafé. It’s the perfect spot for an after work borrel met worst or cozy tête-à-tête!
Be sure to also look for the Worst truck at festivals and events around town like Rollende Keukens and Pluk de Nacht!
