8 X new restaurants in amsterdam that just opened the doors
Temakery: Just in time, at the end of January Temakery opened their doors so they just made it to our new restaurants list of January. It’s the new hotspot in the Pijp where you can get your poké bowls, sushi wraps and other Korean, Vietnamese and Thai snacks. YUM!
Baut Paradijs: Baut Paradijs is one of our favorite restaurants that opened this month. Probably because we were super excited for them to open. You can find Baut Paradijs in Amsterdam East. Go there for a nice cup of coffee in the morning or a nice drink (with snacks)in the evening.
Strangelove: Are you planning to watch a movie soon? Than eat a bite before or after at Strangelove. Take the three-course menu or order individual dishes as tame duck or a cake of puff pastry with smoked salmon and sauerkraut.
Barrica: When you’re having serious travel cravings, book a table at Barrica, sister of Dikke Graaf, in Amsterdam West. You can order the tastiest dishes as oysters and steak tartare to share. A new restaurant in Amsterdam where we’re pretty proud of.
Libertine Café Café: do you want some Italian food tonight? Go to Libertine Café Café in the Nine Streets. We’re so lucky to have our office almost next to it. Pink beet risotto for lunch please! The pizzettes from the oven and the sardines are highly recommended as wel. Go!
Zaagmolen: Restaurant Zaagmolen is a small hidden restaurant in the Pijp. The restaurant is giving us a living room kind of feel, but with probably better food that at home;-). Get surprised by the 5- or 3-course menu. We’re already revealing that the cheese board is really tasty!
The Bao Kitchen: ok, not really fair but we really need The Bao Kitchen in our list with new restaurants in Amsterdam. It’s a pop-up restaurant that you can only visit on Thursdays and Friday. For € 20,- you’re getting a 6-course menu with bao buns and other good food from Taiwan.
The Lebanese Sajeria: For the most delicious Lebanese street food you can now go to this small joint in the Nine Streets!
