9 X new RESTAURANTS IN AMSTERDAM that you want to visit now

Chin Chin ClubThe Chin Chin Club at the Rozengracht is the place to be for everything. For old school karaoke and nostalgic games, cocktails and clubbing until early in the morning, but also for dim sum and other tasty Chinese dishes. Perfect for a night out with friends!

SpingarenYes, the only restaurant that’s still missing in Amsterdam is here! A charcuterie restaurant in the center of Amsterdam just opened. A place where you can order the best sausages, pastrami, pancetta and other cold meats. Spingaren is a charcuterie restaurant and a tasting room in one where you can taste a lot of different charcuterie, but also fermented vegetables such as pickled cucumber, kimchi, beets and fish. So good!

Little Sal: Little Sal is a really small (but cozy) restaurant / take-out spot at the Rozengracht where you want to bicycle to, even in the middle of the night. At Little Sal you’ll find the best (midnight) snacks from Latin America.

Vegan Junk Food Bar: The second location of the Vegan Junk Food bar can be found at the Marie Heinekenplein in the Pijp. A restaurant (in stead of snackbar) where we can go for their famous 100% vegan snacks, like the ‘bitterballen’, burgers, nuggets, ‘fish’ & chips, but also new snacks. Testing time ;-)

Fondue Oost: Cheese, cheese and more cheese. Now that Autumn with her cold and rainy nights is getting closer, we start to get cravings for a large pan of cheese fondue. At Fondue Oost you can order different sorts of cheese fondue, such as truffel fondue, a Mexican fondue with nachos and even a fondue with French blue cheese. Oh my… Check the blog for the location and book a table!

Fondue Oost

NacaratNacarat is the newest project of chef Ron Blaauw on the rooftop of Hudson’s Bay, the new to open department store on Rokin this autumn. Naracat Amsterdam is located on the 5th floor and has a spectacular view over Amsterdam. The menu has a Middle Eastern touch.

SushisambaSushisamba is a restaurant with a unique mix of Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian culture and cuisine. The restaurant chain is known for its theater-like look, with an open space, huge windows and an open kitchen with a big grill.

Lokaal SpaandersLokaal Spaanders is an all-day café where you want to wake up with a good cup of coffee, lunch with fresh salads and have a nice dinner in the weekend. It’s a place where you, as you might expect, can find local ingredients. The local baker supplies bread and the herbs come from their own vegetable garden. Ps: on Sunday the owner Roos cooks leftovers of the previous days for a great meal of the day.

Duck District: At the Central Station you can now enjoy bao buns, summer rolls and other Asian snacks when your train is delayed. Duck District will stay for at least a year in the new passage at the station: Lil’ Amsterdam. Lucky us!
