#The Perfect Rice Table

There are quite a few "rice table" restaurants in Amsterdam. The Dutch love Asian food and this restaurant serves it generously. It looks more like a cafe, but "Sama Sabo" is an old restaurant institution. For nearly 50 years it has been selling the "rice table."

Rijsttafel, a dish brought to the Netherlands from Indonesia, collected dishes from all over the Indonesian islands and became a classic and fascinating dish, a national food in the Netherlands. Although all dishes have the same sauce, rijsttafel is based on a variety of flavors and textures of food.

At the center of the common table for several diners, the waiters place a large white rice plate or rice plates on the heating pads. Around them are a variety of small plates and bowls with a variety of types of meat - including chicken, beef, pork, fish, seafood, vegetables, mushrooms and more. Most of them were cooked in peanut and coconut-based sauce or on the grill with the sauce on them.

#The Best Fries Stall in Amsterdam

It is not easy to find great fries in Amsterdam. Fries, or "Pata" in Dutch, has become a secondary name for Amsterdam. The city has hundreds of well-known places to get fries. Some offer fish and chips, and some sell fries alone.

But when you talk about the best fries in Amsterdam, everyone knows exactly where it can be found. It is a small, and even hidden, stall, nearby Kalverstraat, called Vleminckx Sausmeesters, which has for years held the title of best fries in Amsterdam. This is not just Amsterdam's most famous fries stand - it is also very old. Since it was founded in 1887, it has been operating continuously for the long line of service that is used to stretch out in front of it. It has been located in its present location since 1958.

The reason the fries are so good is the Belgian frying system here. Here, they fry the potatoes and let them rest, so that once before they are served, they dip them again in the boiling oil. They serve the fries here in a rolled paper cup, in the shape of a paper cone, and sprinkle sauces as desired.

The fries sold here can be served with dozens of sauces, with a huge variety of flavors. Among the 25 sauces offered here are exotic flavors, such as peppermint mayonnaise or cheese-based sauces, and some that seem just irrational, such as satay, a kind of peanut butter sauce mixed with chili, delicious with the fries.

The result is indeed very tasty. This stall, perhaps hard to believe, has already been imitated around the world. Enjoy your meal!

#The Best Spare Ribs in the World

Every visitor in Amsterdam must eat a spare ribs at the Café de Klos. It is a true temple of flesh. They also have excellent steaks and skewers, but the truly special dish here is three huge portions of perfect ribs, with excellent cabbage salad and two sauces, white and pink. Even the baked potato, with the excellent melted butter.

Even when you start eating with a knife and fork, with time the hands come into the picture and then just lick your fingers. And dinner does not go without a good glass of wine, or a glass of cold beer straight from the barrel. Enjoy!

Café de Klos is located on Kirktraat Street No. 41/43, a Church Street, near Leidseplein Square. The decor and furnishings, like the Dutch, are rather Spartan. Here you sit at a simple wooden table, with padded benches.


Arrive as closing to opening as possible, to have the best change to get a table. Otherwise sit at the bar.

The desserts can be skipped...

Most of the menu is not kosher.
#Fusion Restaurant at Reasonable Prices

Like every big capital, Amsterdam the capital of the Netherlands, is a city full of restaurants whose kitchens are international. A-Fusion is an Asian fusion restaurant whose kitchen delivers exceptionally large dishes that combine dining styles. From Chinese cuisine, to Indonesian, Indian and Thai, there are dishes here reminiscent of Vietnamese and even Japanese food.

Dishes such as curry chicken or Szechuan beef, are a must order. But there are also far less familiar dishes, more creative and those that combine different kitchens, in the best fusion tradition, tastes that do not stop surprising for the better.

With reasonably priced main dishes of 10 euros or more, this restaurant, near the Red Light District, offers great value for money. This restaurant is highly recommended around the world, definitely try the dessert offered with sweet tea in milk, served with tapioca balls.

In any case, the portions here are very large. If you are a couple - it is worth ordering a single dish and attacking it together ... If you are a single diner - ask for a doggy bag with what was will surely be your leftovers, after you can no longer eat the huge dishes served here.

#The Cafe That was Opened in a Coffin Factory

Cafe Papeneiland is a story. First of all let's make it clear that this is a place with excellent drinks and food. A brewery, a bar, a pub, a coffee shop and a restaurant - everything they do here is wonderful.

The interesting story, which started its attraction in the first place, a place of pilgrimage, is that the building in which this cafe was built in 1642. In its early years, the place was used as a factory for the manufacturing of coffins. After that, there were quite a few different cycles, at the end of which this successful place was opened.

Recommendation - their excellent apple pie (aplle pie)!

In addition to a brewery and the abundant wonderful dishes sold here, the design of the place is also great. Enjoy!

#About the Best Cookie in the World

It is said to be the most delicious cookie in the world, and it is in Amsterdam. Van Staple's bakery is so confident in their "merchandise" that they sell only one type of food here - the cookie. That's it.

In a bakery that bakes Walrone chocolate brown chocolate cookies, filled with white chocolate, they are served hot from the oven, directly to the happy buyers. Each cookie costs something like 2.5 euro, but the taste is incredible...

Well, opinions are divided by those who say that this is the best cookie in the world and it's worth every bite, and those who think it is very good, but only if you are already in the area. Decide alone and bon appetite!
