Located in a trendy part of Amsterdam West, you’ll find this Japanese restaurant with a fresh, hip interior, an easy-going vibe and a mysterious name. In English there’s a saying about always having “room for dessert”, even after you’ve declared you just can’t eat another bite. The Japanese actually have a word for it, BetsuBara, which literally means “separate stomach”.
