13 x the best Asian streetfood in Amsterdam to share with friends

12 June 2017


Bao buns, spring rolls, dumplings, edamame, hell yes we like Asian streetfood. Not only because these bites are finger licking good, but because of the shared dining aspect as well. All those small bites to share, so much fun! And it comes with a big advantage: it gives you the opportunity to taste even more different dishes from the menu. Good – not too complicated – food, good drinks and good company. No wonder that Amsterdam loves Asian streetfood. That’s why we’ve selected 13 x the best Asian streetfood in Amsterdam!

13 X ASIAN STREETFOOD IN AMSTERDAM that you want to try

Terpetijn: Tuna tataki, gambas, oysters and more with a Asian touch, that’s what you’ll find on the menu of Terpentijn. During the weekends they’re open till 04.00 in the morning and that makes it a perfect place for drinks & bites.

Boi Boi: Do you love Thai food? Then you should go to Boi Boi in East near the Dappermarkt. Pad thai, curry’s, spring rolls, chicken. And you can also let them deliver the food. Handy if you don’t feel like cooking, but do want some Asian food!

J.D. Williams: At J.D. Williams Whisky Bar you probably think of whisky right away. But did you know that they also serve delicious streetfood? How about Korean style rib eye beef taco and edamame falafel taco? So good!

De Japanner: Classic dishes such as sushi, yakitori and tempura is what you get at De Japanner on the Albert Cuyp. All these bites are finger licking good and that’s exactly what you want to do ;-)
