Are you looking for Pork Ribs in Amsterdam?

Pigs and Punch is your place!

Each person is different, but sometimes I just can’t get rid of the feeling that I have to eat one specific thing. If the same happens to you, we are on the same board😉.

During the last couple of weeks, that ONE thing was Pork Ribs!

We were searching where to get pork ribs which will satisfy our needs.

And we found a great place!
***Spanish version below***

Don´t take us wrong, many restaurants in Amsterdam offer pork ribs on their menus but unfortunately, many times the taste is not so good usually due to a lot of BBQ sauce or due to the low quality of the meat (yes, there is also a good quality pork meat😋).

Pigs and Punch

Here we would like to share our experience with this restaurant.

As per the name, the restaurant is focused only on pork meat with nice and modern decoration inside. There are two floors, the first floor is open space with a kitchen in the middle and the second floor is mainly for the bar.

The menu is quite short (which makes it easy😀mainly with pork dishes with very few options with fish.

Menu

If you are vegetarian, we would definitely not recommend this place (sorry 😉)

As a starter, we ordered Padron Peppers and Bacon Popcorn. We thought that bacon popcorn will be something more sophisticated than just popcorn with pieces of bacon so we would probably not recommend this dish as we expected something different.

The main dish was Iberico Rib Eye and Pork Ribs with potato waffles and sweet potato fries.

The Rib Eye had a good taste but some parts were quite hard to eat as there was a lot of fat. I guess it will be better if the meat will be cooked more so it will be more tender. So the suggestion will be to ask the guest how much they want to cook the meat as pork steak is not always good when is half raw.

The Pork Ribs were amazing, with delicious taste and perfectly cooked. The sauce was well equilibrated and the meat was just falling off the bones itself.

Overall, if you want to eat Pork Ribs, this is the place for you!

Estais buscando costillas de cerdo para cenar? Pigs and Punch en Amsterdam es vuestro sitio!

Se que a cada gusto colores pero a vosotros nos os pasa que por semanas teneis ganas de comer solo y exclusivamente una cosa (no continuamente sea claro 😝), si eres unos de esos estamos hechos de la misma pasta.

Si, estas semanas hemos estado en la búsqueda de unas costillas de cerdo hechas como dios manda y puedes ser que la hayamos encontrado.

Amsterdam es una ciudad donde no es difícil encontrar costillas de cerdo en las cartas de los restaurantes, pero muchas veces sea por la mucha salsa BBQ o porque la carne no sea de calidad (si existe también carne de cerdo de calidad 😜) hemos estado con ganas de comer algo mejor .

Pasando por las calles del centro hemos visto un restaurantes que se llama Pigs and Punch y la otra noche lo hemos visitado.

Ahora os voy a contar un poco nuestra experiencia.

El restaurante es como dice el mismo nombre de carne de cerdo y punch (bebida alcoholica que normalmente venía usada como digestivo), es bastante modernillo como muchos aquí en Amsterdam (cuidan mucho la decoración en este país 👍).

Tienen dos salas, una arriba que tiene la cocina open space y la otra abajo que es una barra bar.

La carta es bastante corta y se basa sobretodo en productos con cerdo, tienen alguna opción de pescado y no es apto para vegetarianos (sorry guys) pero aquí a lo que hemos venido es a comer carne o no !!!

De entrantes hemos pedido unos pimentitos de padrón (en su punto de salazón ) y popcorn de bacon (pensábamos que podría ser algo interesante pero nos han traído literalmente palomitas y trocitos de bacon (no sé si os podría aconsejar hacer un upgrade de esta tápita para que el cliente no se desepcione a recibir palomitas por cena ✌️😜)

De segundo un Rib eye iberico y las costillas de cerdo y de guarnición unas patata waffels y boniato y zanahorias fritas.

Las guarniciones estaban más que correctas en su punto de sal y bien crujientes.

El Rib eye ibérico estaba bastante sabroso aunque en algunas parte un poco chicloso, porque no pedir al cliente el punto de la carne , sabemos que si se cocina mucho sería más dura pero un normal cliente la podría volver atrás viendo carne de cerdo cruda o casi. La carne ibérica con todos los controles que tiene que tener se puede comer también no del todo hecha (tipo la pluma ) pero igual mejor pedir al cliente con antelacion como la quiere.

Las costillas de cerdo estaban increíbles, la carne sabrosas y en su punto, la carne se despegaba del hueso sin problema y su adobo y salsa no sobresalía gustándote a lo maximo el sabor a cerdo (muchas veces pasa que sabe solo a salsa bbq) good Job chefs 👍👍.

Me gusto la idea de tirar los huesos en un contenitore de metal .

En general es un sitio donde la costillas son fantásticas el servicio bastante atento y calidad precio buena . Volveremos ✌️✌️✌️

Probablemente hacen también buenos cocktails (nosotros hemos maridado con birra de la casa Brouwerij’tij ) pero las mesas a lado bebían cocktails y parecían bien hechos y presentados.
