3 Dining Spots in Amsterdam
Now that I've been home for a week. I'm really starting to miss certain things about Amsterdam. As a full-time foodie, I'm most attracted by the food. While I was in Amsterdam, I was really surprised by the amount of beautiful looking dining spots they have. Every place looks so cozy and delicious, I wanted to try every single cute restaurants around the corner, but unfortunately, we were only there for 4 nights. As I've been home cooking for the past few days, one thing I missed the most is to have a really nice meal with best friend Cynthia. We weren't just accompanied by good food, but a few long chats as well. So I am sharing the 3 big and small bites that I'm really missing, and why that it should be part of your list if you're visiting Amsterdam one day.
I don't know if any of you know this, but I'm probably the hugest yoghurt junkie on the planet. I love yoghurt, I can eat them as breakfast, or as my midnight dessert! So I'm sure you can imagine how happy I am when I came across this cute Yoghurt Bar located near the Albert Cuyp Market. Yoghurt Barn is really cozy and intimate. Its the perfect place if you want to enjoy a healthy and relaxing morning. And I love that I'm able to customise my own taste, there's six yoghurts to choose from, and not to mention the endless toppings on the counter! Or if you want, they also come with the ready-made menu, which was pretty tasty as well!
2. The Seafood Bar
When I searched 'good seafood in Amsterdam' online, the first thing that popped out was The Sea Food Bar. So of course, I have to make it here to enjoy probably the freshest seafood I've had for a long time. We went for the chef's choice of mix grill, and I absolutely loved it! As you can see from the photo above, we went a little crazy on ordering (oops!). I left the restaurant with an explosive stomach, and I had no room for any dessert, which is really rare for a sweet tooth like me! Apart from the portion, everything is so good. I would really recommend this place if you're a seafood lover, you'll definitely enjoy a beautiful seafood feast. The location is pretty good as well, about 10 mins walk from the Museum Square!
3. De Luwte
De Luwte is a beautiful restaurant, and if you'd like to have a little fancy during your trip, I will definitely recommend this place. The food here is amazing, and the plating is very pretty as well! We went there for two nights, because I really wanna try more dishes on the menu. And it turns out to be an excellent choice. (I try to avoid doing so while I'm travelling, but this one is an exception!). At first I was a bit annoyed when we're told there's a 45 minutes wait for our table, but now I can definitely see why. Also, they only run for dinner, so if you're thinking of visiting, bare that in mind. :)
So there you have it, my three favourite dining spots in Amsterdam! Let me know if you have any other recommendations, and I will put on my list next time I visit! Have a great week!
