Best Foods in Amsterdam

When I went to Amsterdam I was SHOCKED by the amount of food choices available. I expected to try a Van Wonderen Stroopwafel as well as an olliebollen from a street vendor on my trip but I was not expecting to have unlimited choices.

If you love food just as much as I do, I highly recommend going to The Butcher for brunch. For 23 euros, customers can choose one main course from the menu and have full access to the buffet, which includes bottomless mimosas. For my main course, I ordered smoked salmon and poached eggs. I also ate roasted veggies, Lebanese cheese, a croissant, an apple tart, and grape leaves from the buffet. In addition to all the food I had, I drank grapefruit juice, orange juice, apple juice, beet/watermelon juice, carrot/orange juice, an apple/ginger shot, and tea. Click here to read more about it.


I would also recommend going to the food department in Magna Plaza if you are traveling in a big group or with a picky eater! I tried several foods at Magna Plaza including a vegetarian hot dog from MATTS Wonderland and a sushi burrito from Sushito. After my meal I had a sweet tooth so I went to Hop & Stork for a bit of chocolate! The picture below is a map of the food department taken from the Magna Plaza website.


In my opinion, the most important thing to check off of the bucket list is indulging in a stroopwafle from Van Wonderen Stroopwafels. The Stroopwafels are absolutely amazing and completely customizable. The little shop is located in the middle of the city so it is easy to reach. Right outside the shop is a canal, which makes for a great photo op.


Below is a map of the food places mentioned in the bucket list. To get to Pont Neuf, take the FREE ferry ride from the Central Station to the Buiksloterweg Station. The trip is only 3 minutes and super enjoyable.
