Don't-Miss Dishes in Amsterdam

If you like rich, heavy foods and drinks, Amsterdam won't disappoint. The capital of the Netherlands is a great place to sample traditional Dutch snacks and produce, best experienced with locally produced beer. Here are a few items you won’t want to miss.

Beer

Amsterdam is a great place for beer lovers, and many visitors make a trip to the Heineken Experience a top priority. For something more authentic, Amsterdam’s bar- and tasting room–packed De Wallen district is a good place to start. 

Bitterballen

If you find yourself in a bar in Amsterdam, you’re sure to seebitterballen on the menu. This popular bar snack is made from a mixture of meat, butter, and spices that are formed into little balls, deep fried, and served piping hot with mustard.

Cheese

While you can certainly taste plenty of great cheeses in Amsterdam, you may want to head out to the nearby town of Gouda or to the town of Alkmaar, with a cheese market dating to the 14th century.

Rookworst

The most popular type of Dutch sausage, smokedrookworst is made from spiced meat in pig intestines. It's available all over town, with plenty of great options right in the Jordaan area. 

Pannenkoeken

Dutch pancakes, orpannenkoeken, are a popular snack item in Amsterdam, served with either sweet or savory toppings. There are plenty of places to get them around town, though they aren't that difficult to DIY. Some cooking classes even teach participants how to make them at home.
