Prior to moving to Amsterdam this week, I’ve visited the city three times in the last two years, partly due to the affordable accommodation the city has to offer. Part of what I love about the city is the range of food options, particularly the unusual Asian and African cuisine.
What I do find they do really well, though, and what I’ve indulged in every time I’ve stayed in Amsterdam, is pizza and burgers. Here are a list of my favourite restaurants in the city that I’m looking forward to eating at in the next few months, and can definitely recommend.
Much like a hole-in-the-wall dive bar, The Butcher is an unassuming little burger joint that produces quality food. From the outside, it doesn’t look like much, and it’s only got a handful of tables inside, but the burgers can rival any of the gourmet burger joints I’ve eaten at around the world. They even do a mean fish and chips, which is what I ordered last time, and that honour isn’t bestowed by me lightly, coming from the home of fish and chips. Also, it apparently has a separate little room in the back where you can enjoy cocktails in the evening.
