The main thing we want to do during a holiday in another country is to taste their local food. When visiting Amsterdam, it is sometimes hard to find traditional Dutch food. We’ve selected three restaurants for you with Dutch ingredients and dishes on their menu. One more traditional than the other.
MOEDERS – ROZENGRACHT 251, AMSTERDAM
This restaurant serves traditional Dutch cuisine. You will find different kind of stamppot dishes in a living room ambience. Moeders (literal translation: mothers) serves all kinds of Dutch stews combining traditional ingredients such as kale, potatoes and bacon. Not a potato fan? No worries! There are spare ribs, fish from the market or their famous Dutch Rice dish as well.
FLOREYN – ALBERT CUYPSTRAAT 31, AMSTERDAM
Floreyn restyles traditional Dutch cuisine to today’s gourmet. And they do it with pride. The flavours and savours of a rich culinary history are recreated using contemporary cooking skills and insights. Their interior is a hint towards all things Dutch too. For instance, they have a water level gauge where you can see that Amsterdam lies below sea level.
VISCAFÉ DE GOUDEN HOEK – VAN LIMBURG STIRUMPLEIN 10A, AMSTERDAM
The final restaurant where you’ll find Dutch food is Viscafé de Gouden Hoek (literal translation: fish café the golden angle). The café is known for their original fish and chips dishes with local fishes being the hero of the dish. One of our famous North Sea fishes is the turbot. We love it served with the piccalilli mayonnaise!
