Come to the BBQ Festival in amsterdam North with friends
Put a big cross in your calendar on August 6 for the BBQ Festival at Dok Amsterdam. On this (hopefully sunny) Sunday you will find several food stands with a BBQ to serve you delicious meat from the grill. Think of spareribs, steaks, chicken spies and more. If you’re not that good with grilling meat on the BBQ this festival might be your life saver this summer.
Not really into meat? No worries. Besides meat from the BBQ there are also other food stands where you can order delicious snacks. There are ice creams from ikwileenijsje.nl, sushi burgers (yep!) from Mr Sushi CL Sushi Burgers, pizzas and carpaccio from Sapri, Angelo’s Sicilian Dishes, Burgers from De Burgerwacht and even fries to order. Between eating, the reason why we’re there ;-) There are several lounge areas where you can relax or chat with friends when you have your after dinner dip. Of course there are also ice cold beers, wine and a lot of cocktails to try. I already spotted my favourite cocktail: The Disaronno Sour cocktail. Hmm nice!
