Joya: Blue Boy, a restaurant you’ve probably had dinner one time in the city centre of Amsterdam changed! They not only got a new name, they also launched a new food concept. Blue Boy made place for Joya. Your new go to if you love the Asian cuisine.

Ox  & Bucks: Ox & Bucks Amsterdam is added to the list of (new) hotspots on the Zuidas. A new place to visit, also when you’re not working on the Zuidas. A nice all-day spot where you also can go to for after work borrels with colleagues and friends.

The Dutch Weed Burger Joint: You probably saw or maybe even tasted the green burgers of The Dutch Weed Burger at one of the (food) festivals in Amsterdam. After five years of serving burgers from a foodtruck, they now have their own restaurant The Dutch Weed Burger Joint on the Nicolaas Beetsstraat, a side street of the Kinkerstraat in West. Nice!

Park Café Restaurant: Now that the rebuilding of Hotel Arena is almost done, the restaurant also got a new concept. The team of Chefs now cook a plant-based menu with local ingredients and it’s good, believe us!

Franggo: At Franggo you get roasted chicken that’s prepared in a typical Portuguese way. They are cut and folded in open, placed in a special grill grid and roasted on charcoal. This way they stay juicy!

Hoed & Krelis: At Hoed & Krelis on the Ferdinand Bolstraat in the Pijp they work with local fresh products from the season and they like to work with meat and fish. As we already saw on the menu and pictures. We spotted oysters, veal steak, ceviche, cod, fondue, bavette steak. Yes, this may be the new pearl of the Pijp!
