Where to Eat in Amsterdam

You might want to try some Dutch food now you’re here. The main ingredient in old-fashioned Dutch dinners is potatoes, usually accompanied by meat and boiled vegetables. The Dutch traditionally don't use very sharp spices and are very fond of pouring gravy onto everything. This is nice one a week, but not every day. Happily, the Dutch have always been internationally orientated and nowadays you can expect to find meals varying from Italy to the Orient and from China to Africa on Dutch dinner tables, especially amongst younger people. The consumption of dairy products is extremely high, which, according to some scientists, accounts for the high average height of Dutch men and women.

But there are also some less healthy traditional Dutch snacks: what do you think of pancakes with syrup and bacon, or both. Or try some Dutch fast food like bitterballen, kroketten, or fries with mayonnaise. In this section you’ll find a diverse list of places that won’t break your budget and still serve great food. Other then restaurants you can find those places where you can get a quick bite and bars which offer light meals on the side.
