What You Should Eat in Amsterdam

About The Convent Amsterdam

Dutchfood might not exactly stick out in a sea of incredible European cuisine, but Amsterdam can claim bragging right to a variety of dishes that you just have to try if you visit.

Not sure where to start? Luckily, Lilotchka of Jaunted.com posted a great little article, "From a Dutch Oven: Five Meals You Absolutely Must Eat in Amsterdam."

Now, I'm sure there are more than five, but the ones listed here look so darn good.

Starting with apple pancakes - "appel pannenkoeken" in the morning, you can eat your way through one tasty day while touring this dynamic city. What stuck out to me most on the list was "Rijstafel" for dinner. As the author writes,

"Indonesia used to be a Dutch colony, and now Indonesian food is one of the most popular ethnic cuisines in Holland. A rijstafel (rice table) is a sort of Indonesian tapas – you’ll get a bowl of rice and about a dozen other small dishes, which can include everything from tofu to chicken satay to spicy beef. They’re large, so split one with your date."

Looks so yummy! Get started with your trip today with Robert Q Travel Byron!
