these are the best spots to eat this crunchy snack
Our guilty pleasure is to eat a good pizza from time to time. That’s why we secretly love the flammkuchen. This snack has been flown in from the Elzas in France (surprisingly it isn’t as German as the name suggests). A flammkuchen is basically a very thin pizza with crème fraîche instead of tomato sauce. Because of the thin crust the flammkuchen is always crunchy and that’s exactly the reason why we love it! Order a glass of wine with it or a cold beer and we are satisfied. Because we would love to share our flammkuchen secret with you, we wrote you this blog with 6 hotspots with flammkuchen in Amsterdam.
cafe de bieb >> flammkuchen in amsterdam
Café de Bieb is a nice new hotspot in the Pijp, that is opened all day to still your food cravings. In the weekends Café de Bieb is even opened until 5 a.m! And the good part? You never get to hear that the kitchen is closed, because you can order snacks until closing time. So if you’re still craving a flammkuchen at 3 in the morning, you can!

the lobby >> flammkuchen in amsterdam
The Lobby is the restaurant by the awesome Hotel V at the Nesplein, in the middle of the city centre! This cool restaurant is a hotspot on itself, where you can eat the best flammkuchen. For example the classic with bacon, onion, gruyere and parsley is amazing. Extra nice: they also have a daily changing flammkuchen. Oh, and don’t forget to order a homemade ice tea. They are to die here for!

tap zuid >> flammkuchen in amsterdam
Tap Zuid in the Rivierenbuurt is an industrial spot with a warm feel, where you can drink lovely beers. They have no less than 25 beers on tap. What makes your beer taste even better? That’s right: a crunchy flammkuchen straight out of the oven. In the summer you can sit outside on the terrace, but otherwise you can eat your flammkuchen inside.

bar bukowski >> flammkuchen in amsterdam
Bar Bukowski is one of our favourite spots on the Beukenplein in Amsterdam East. From early in the morning until late in the evening you can sit here and watch people. Especially when you sit upstairs, you have a great view over the room. Then you can spot the waiter bringing your flammkuchen immediately. Will you go for the flammkuchen with goat cheese, red onion, spinach and pine nuts? Or will you choose the one with the cured ham, oregano, onions, truffle oil and rucola? We can tell you: they are all good.

troost brewery >> flammkuchen in amsterdam
At Brouwerij Troost they brew their own beer, which we like. They already had a cool location in an old monastery in De Pijp, but the demand was bigger than the supply. That’s why they recently opened a new venue on the Westergasterrein in West. Next to amazing beer, they also serve flammkuchen here. From pancetta with chive to a variant with spinach and feta. And all of that for very small prices. We like!

ROEST >> FLAMMKUCHEN IN AMSTERDAM
In the relaxed setting of Roest you won’t have to be difficult about the food either. And that’s why we would suggest to just go with the flow and also go here for some delicious flammkuchen. Simple, but oh so tasty. Here they serve the mozzarella tomato type, the tuna melt type and the red onion and bacon type. Yum! Just order at the bar, have a sit, wait for you beeper to bleep and take your order at the kitchen counter. Go back to the city beach and enjoy!

We are going to enjoy ourselves! With a beer in the hand and your friends gathered… Enjoy eating your flammkuchen in Amsterdam!
