Mixing influences from all over the world, food in Amsterdam is heavy and hearty, featuring deep-fried goodies both savory and sweet. Whether you prefer a hole-in-the-wall café or a top restaurant, here are a few foods and experiences not to miss.

Must-Try Dishes
  • Bitterballen are deep-fried meat croquettes served with mustard. 
  • Patat or frites are thick fried potatoes usually served in a paper cone with toppings like curry ketchup, peanut satay sauce, mayonnaise, or onions. 
  • Stamppot is a favorite Dutch comfort food made of potatoes mashed with vegetables and served with a large sausage. 
  • Reflecting the Indonesian influence in Amsterdam, Rijstaffel features a variety of small dishes of rice, meats, and curries.
  • To satisfy your sweet tooth, try warm, buttery poffertjes sprinkled with powdered sugar; a cream-filled tompouce pastry; or stroopwafel, two thin waffles stuck together with a sweet syrup.

Must-Do Experiences
  • Visit an Amsterdam cheese shop for a special wine and cheese tasting, and learn all about Dutch cheeses.
  • Head to the streets and the bars for some of the best traditional Dutch dishes and snacks, many of which can be eaten on the go.
  • Spend an evening with a local family learning how to make Dutch pancakes.
  • Take a guided food tour through the center of Amsterdam, learning about the city’s history while sampling several favorite Dutch treats.
  • Join a culinary tour of Amsterdam’s Jordaan district to get a flavor of the city’s more sophisticated cuisine.
