A Taste Of Amsterdam, Food And CultureExplore > Netherlands > Amsterdam > A Taste Of Amsterdam, Food And Culture
Eat your way through the delicious variety of Amsterdam's Jordaan neighborhood.
The hip Jordaan area is tucked inside of Amsterdam's Central City and nestled between 4 canals. Originally a working-class area, it is known for its beautiful homes, 17th century shops, street musicians, art galleries and cafes...and is a foodie paradise.
The selection of cafes, restaurants, shops and pubs in Jordaan can be daunting. Leave it to your knowledgeable, fun and experienced local guide to show you the best of the best...off the main drag, down tiny side streets to authentic, historic places. Each proprietor has a love for this area and it shows in the care and passion put into each and every dish you taste.
Amsterdam is surrounded by water, so it makes sense that herring is a staple here. Our fish shop is owned by a former fisherman who insists on offering only the freshest products, all caught using sustainable practices.
The delicatessen we visit is a lovely spot, with stained glass windows and beautiful ironwork. But nothing will outshine the mouth-watering selection of cheeses and charcuterie found here. Try not to drool.
During the period of Dutch colonization in Indonesia, not surprisingly, Indonesia's culture was influenced by the Dutch. And conversely, Dutch culture has been influenced by Indonesia as well. We'll taste this influence in a small but authentic Indonesian restaurant, delivering the freshest offerings with a uniquely Asian flare.
This area's butcher shop sticks with time-honored recipes using the best cuts of meat and the finest spices to produce their famous sausages.
We'll visit 3 of Jordaan's best cafes for a delicious taste of Amsterdam's favorites. One is famous for its apple pie, using a tried-and-true recipe from the 1700's. Another will delight you with its borrelhapjes (appetizers) and a 3rd known for its light and fluffy pancakes.
