'IJburg Serveert' is a kitchen-free restaurant that calls on local residents to cook for hungry patrons. In recent years, the sharing economy has allowed average citizens to take on positions such as taxi drivers and landlords. This unique restaurant allows ordinary people to become temporary chefs.

The pop-up restaurant is located on on the IJburg island of Amsterdam and looks directly out on to the water. The prime location makes it the perfect spot for tourists and locals. The restaurant itself has no kitchen and none of the food is prepared on-site. Instead, dishes are prepared by local residents and then delivered to diners via cyclists. The kitchen-free restaurant provides a way for locals to prepare signature dishes that might not be served in other restaurants.

IJburg Serveert puts a unique spin on the sharing economy by expanding the concept of restaurant-style dining.
