Keto at Cannibale Royale

Date
Sep, 23, 2022

In Cannibale Royale is very easy to eat keto and low-carb. It is one of the best places to eat keto in Amsterdam and the Netherlands. Also, even if is a brasserie, there are also vegetarian and vegan options.
As you can imagine by the name, Cannibale Royale is a brasserie, oh pardon, brasserie extraordinaire.

Cannibale Royale has several locations in Amsterdam and even one in Rotterdam. I also discovered that there is a Gym Royale and I am shocked by this genial touch.

Anyway, let’s talk about the food.

Cannibale Royale: the concept

“What do you get when you cross a chic French brasserie with a macabre mancave?”. This question hooked me from the beginning. And what you get is high quality meat, but in another way.

The Menu

Small disclaimer: the menu may slightly differ from location to location.

The menu is creepy guys! For spoilers, look at the second pic in this IG post.

Here you will find the main page for the menu online, divided into lunch and dinner. They slightly differed, and the dinner options are more than the lunch.

Keto LUNCH Options at Cannibale Royale

Starters

Crispy Cauliflower wings: Marinated cauliflower ‘wings’ with garlic sriracha and bbq sauce (don’t worry they give the sauces separated!)

Green Stuff

Cannibale’s Caesar Salad: simply a Caesar salad. Just take out the Croutons(they are big pieces so it is easy) and you will have Grana Padano, egg, and fried capers. You can also add chicken and bacon, for a slightly higher price.

My keto order at Cannibale Royale

I visited CR for dinner, in the location of de Pijp.

As a starter, I took Le Camembert Diabolique. It is served with bread, but alone with a spoon was just fine! Very tasty and recommended.

As a side dish, I took Crispy garlic broccoli: they were the best cauliflower I had in a long time: crispy and garlic-y.

I wanted also meat, and I chose the Le Modeste (300gr), medium cooked.

I enjoyed this dinner so much.

Cannibale Royale: Conclusions

I consider Cannibal Royal a valid brasserie, with very high-quality service and meat.

I like that the meat is tender and the taste is genuine.

I love the fact that the sauces are served in a separate jar and not on the meat.
Loving also that the main dishes are not served with the typical fries, but they come without a side. You have to choose the side dish apart. Is perfect for keto people, always trying to bribe the waiter to swipe the fries with a sad salad.
