Indonesian Food in Amsterdam

By Philippa Burne, UK, August 2012

No reviews, be the first!

The Netherlands made itself rich during the 17th century – the Dutch Golden Age – by trading Asian spices through the Dutch East India Company. For over three centuries (1602-1942) what is now Indonesia was a Dutch colony. It’s not surprising then that Indonesian food is plentiful and excellent in Amsterdam.

One dish you’ll often find is not strictly Indonesian but comes from the days of colonization and began as a way for the Dutch in the East Indies to sample foods from all the different islands of the region. Rijsstafel (rice table) is like a tapas of many different dishes, small plates so you can sample different tastes.
