One of the best things about living overseas is getting to show friends from home around your new city! While I don’t actually live in Amsterdam, I visit often enough that I feel I have a basic grip on the must-do attractions and I love doing more research then taking my friends to all the best spots. Today I’m sharing my personal favourite places to eat in Amsterdam, whether it’s for a sweet snack or a sit-down meal. These are my personal choices for ‘coolest’ places to eat in Amsterdam because they have a fun mix of delicious food, great atmosphere, location and decor. I will also be updating this post whenever I find a new cool place, so check back often!
The Dirty Chicken Club
The Food Department
Pigs & Punch
van Wonderen Stroopwafels
The Butcher Social Club
Cereal & Chill (closed)
*Unfortunately, Cereal & Chill didn’t survive the pandemic and is no longer open, but I’m leaving this here so you can see how cool it used to be. Maybe one day they will re-open at a different location – fingers crossed!
