I went to Amsterdam last week and we discovered lots of beautiful places. We went for just one day, so I decided to just talk about the food and drinks we had. It was delicious and I can definitely recommend them, so let’s go, because we have lots to talk about!
For our lunch we went to the Foodhallen. This is giant foodmarket in the centre of Amsterdam. It also has clothing, books, movies and lots of other goodies. We mainly went for the food, because we were very hungry. There was a lot of foreign food, which we were so pleased about.
We started off with taco’s at the Mexican stand Taquaria Lima. We got all 5 taco’s they had so we could share them. I loved this, but it was very, very, very spicy. You have to be a spicelover if you want to eat here. They also used lemon in every taco, which gave it a very specific and special flavour. I do have to say that in some taco’s I didn’t like the lemon flavour. In other ones, it was just great.
Afterwards, we tried the Iberico ham from the Jabugo stand. This ham is a Spanish delicacy and you can definitely tell that. The ham is very tasty. We got it on little sandwiches.
For our drinks, we went for a South-Asian twist. We decided to get homemade lemonades from the Fento stand. So good!
In the afternoon, we were in need of a coffee and something sweet, so we decided to try the new, famous multinational Dunkin’ Donuts. The reason I say new is because it the shop was in Amsterdam for two days before we arrived. American readers will say that this isn’t special, but for us, it is. The donuts are so cute and delicious. In Belgium we don’t even have a Dunkin’ Donuts, such a big shame for our country. I was glad I could try it here either way. I got the triple chocolate donut and a mocha coffee.
For dinner, we decided to go for a a local, cosy cafe. We went to the Harlem Café. It was so cosy and lovely in there. It was warm and you could really feel the local atmosphere there. Even though The Netherlands is our neighboring country and we have a lot in common, including our language, the culture is still very different.
What struck me in Amsterdam was the multicultural food we could eat. Most of the restaurants have foreign food on their menus. We went with nacho’s as our starter, with sour cream, cheddar cheese and guacamole. This was so freaking delicious, I can’t even tell. The nachos were freshly baked and still warm. This was a must-eat here! Afterwards we went with a delicious rib-eyesteak.
That was it for today everyone! Have you been to Amsterdam before?
