9 x food & drinks in the clercqstraat Amsterdam
MOOK Pancakes: For super fluffy pancakes you go to MOOK Pancakes. At MOOK they serve organic pancakes with surprising combinations. Not the typical Dutch pancakes with syrup and bacon. But a pancake with avocado for example. Or with bacon, cheese and onion. YUM!
Champagneria Five Brothers Fat: Champagneria Five Brothers Fat is the first champagneria in Amsterdam and makes many hearts race. A restaurant focussed on champagne, I mean, can it even get any better?!
Rotisserie: Rotisserie is a hotspot at the Clercqstraat where it’s all about chicken and burgers and good craft cocktails. A combination that makes us happy!
H Burger: H Burger stands for a fine, approachable place where you can go for delicious, affordable burgers, milkshakes and side dishes. As soon as you enter this place, you’ll notice that you find yourself in a very fresh-looking place. Perfect place to score a burger and fries with friends!
Karakter: At Karakter the emphasis lies on the drinks. They serve cocktails, specialty beers, gin-tonics and fine wines. Drinks with character ;-) The character of the drinks is because of the A brands that are being served and the finger food that you get with your drink, yum!
Pazzi: Pazzi used to be a nice pizza spot in the Jordaan, but grew into a public favourite within months. People loved to take-away their pizzas here, or eat it in the small restaurant. Popularity grew and they expanded to West, where they also serve pizzas now. Yum!
Van ’t Spit: Whether you want half a chicken or just a whole one (to share)… here you’re allowed to eat with your hands! And, you can combine the chicken with bread, organic fries, salad or applesauce. But without side dishes, the chicken is also very, very tasty.
Our newest lists
Hendrix: At Hendrix (named after Jimi) you can have soul food and cocktails. The perfect spot to have drinks with friends. Go for the Make it sloppy nachos with homemade guacamole, spicy meat, cheddar and sour cream and have one of the special cocktails with it. Nice!
Bilder en de Clercq: Bilder en de Clercq is a supermarket where everything has been done to make it as easy for you as possible. There are 14 different recipes (each week, one recipe changes) with a table where you can find all the ingredients in exactly the right amount for one person. Perfect!

Funny right?
