Soo, many of you have requested a “food guide” for Amsterdam, so here you have one! All these places have quite “student friendly” prices, and perfect if you want a meal in a casual and relaxed atmosphere! I hope you find something you like! ♥ As Amsterdam is a city with a lot of tourists, I would recommend you to always book a table in advance!
I am barely in the City Center & the “9 streets,” but I have some favourite places there, where I love to eat!
REE7. Here they have so much yummy food, and the perfect place if you need a refill after a long day of shopping. This cute café/restaurant is located in the 9 streets, and there are several of cute stores around! I love the “Club Sandwich with fries,” so yummy! Adress: Reestraat 7, 1016 DM Amsterdam
BRIX. The time I was here with my friends the service wasn’t that good, but the food was super good! We shared three dishes, and that was more than enough! It was quite busy here when we visited, and if I am not mistaken it’s also open during the evening. Also located in the 9 streets. Adress: Wolvenstraat 16, 1016 EP Amsterdam
Burgerlijk. Okey, so if you want to try an amazing veggie burger (or just an amazing burger), this is the place to go! They also have the best fries (with homemade ketchup!!) This place is a must if you are visiting Amsterdam. They are located both in the 9 streets, and in the West. Adress: Runstraat 1, 1016 GJ Amsterdam
Los Pilones. This is a Mexican restaurant which is located several places in the city. I have only been to the one on “Kerkstraat” (which is in the middle of the city), and the interior of the restaurant is so cool! The food here is also good (the drinks are quite strong), but if you want a real Mexican meal, this is the place to go! Adress: Kerkstraat 63I, 1017 GC Amsterdam
Memories of India. Okey, so this is my favourite restaurant in the whole of Amsterdam, haha. The “Chicken Tikka Masala” is seriously the best!! So, I really recommend this place! It is located right by “Rembrandt Square.” Adress: Reguliersdwarsstraat 88, 1017 BN Amsterdam
So I have been living in “The West” for around one year now, and this is my definitely my favourite part of Amsterdam. Here they have so many cute cafes & restaurants.
Meatless District. So this is a vegan restaurant, and they have such good food! This is a great place if you are either vegan or vegetarian, or just want to try out vegan food. Really recommend this place! Adress: Bilderdijkstraat 65-67 H, 1053 KM Amsterdam
Happy Happy Joy Joy. One of the restaurant where I always bring my friends when they visit me in Amsterdam, and everyone always loves it. This is a restaurant where all the countries of Asia come together, both in interior and flavours. This restaurant has kinda like a «sharing concept,» and I would recommend to just order several things on the menu and share it with the whole table! Adress: Bilderdijkstraat 158hs, 1053 LC Amsterdam
MOOK Pancakes. Here they have very good pancakes, with so many different toppings! Me and my friend had the pancakes with chocolate, banana and strawberry & the pancakes with hummus and avocado. Belive me – you will not need more food after this, you get so much food with one order! Adress: De Clercqstraat 34, 1052 MZ Amsterdam
Trakteren. This place is quite small, but the coffee and cookies are super good, and they make cute animals in your coffee, hihi! So stop by here if you are nearby! Adress: Jan Pieter Heijestraat 119-A, 1054 MD Amsterdam
Forno. I actually worked as a waiter in this restaurant for about 4 months, and the atmosphere and food is very nice! They also have very good breakfast, and the pizzas here are so good! Adress: Rhijnvis Feithstraat, 1054 TW Amsterdam
Bar Spek. This restaurant is very close to my apartment, and I am here maybe a little bit too often..haha. The perfect place to meet up with friends to have a glas of wine, or a good drink! The food here is also great! The perfect place to go if you would like to have some drinks before going out (even though it’s quite far from the City Center, maybe 10 minutes with the bike.) Adress: Admiraal de Ruijterweg 1, 1057 Amsterdam
«De Pijp» is one of my favourite areas in Amsterdam, as well, and here you can find so many different and cute cafes and restaurants. Here they as well have so many nice concept stores – definitely worth visiting!
Yoghurt Barn. Here you can get very yummy yoghurt with a huge variety of toppings! Adress: Eerste van der Helststraat 80II, 1072 NZ Amsterdam
Coffe & Coconuts. This place has the best interior, and the coffee and food is very good! A place I really recommend to visit! Adress: Ceintuurbaan 282-284, 1072 LR Amsterdam
Little Collins. I have actually never visited this cafe/restaurant, but I have heard so much great about this place! So I thought I would include this for you as well! Adress: Eerste Sweelinckstraat 19F, 1073 CL Amsterdam.
Hutspot. This cafe is so cool! It’s a cafe, a barbershop and a clothing store and it’s definitely worth visiting. Adress: Van Woustraat 4, 1073 LL Amsterdam
