Grab a bite in AmsterdamLike0

 Why is it that we try and squeeze everything we want to do in our lives in 48 hours, only to leave us exhausted by the end of a trip? This, is something I  can never figure out. I was in Amsterdam for 3 days, then again for 4 days. There was this moment where I looked at my watch and couldn’t believe how much little time I have left before discovering only 20% of the new places. Every year, new places open and every year they get better. I did however forgot to mention this FANTASTIC fish restaurant… apparently it is the oldest one in town. I seem to have left my camera and the name of the place back in Amsterdam. If anyone know where I am talking about then feel free to let me know! All I know is that it’s blue, we had dinner there and it was sublime!

Here are the few places I recommend to Grab a bite in Amsterdam. Summer plans are already in the making, so share your secrets with me!

Pompadour

You could see people looking from the window, drooling and just staring like it’s porn. It is actually. Just food porn. That sounds so vulgar, but I promise you, you will understand why this chocolatier won an award in 2014.

The Dylan Amsterdam Breakfast

I stayed there one night and woke up early specifically to enjoy the healthy breakfast I heard so much about at The Dylan. If you are there in summer, enjoy breakfast outdoors in the historic garden!

Pancakes!

Did you know that King Lodewijk Napoleon Bonaparte (brother of Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte) favourite food in Holland was Dutch Pancakes. One of my favorite things to eat too! Pancakes is quite tight, like most fabulous places actually and be prepared to queue up. Serves no take away but has delicious pancakes with raw chocolate and GLUTEN FREE! Loved Pancakes!
