You don’t want to miss this amazing Street Food Festival

Next Saturday, the city beach of DOK Amsterdam is transforming into another paradise food festival. This time you can go to Street Food Festival where a lot of food trucks prepare delicious food for you. Think of poké bowls, Surinamese, vegetarian dishes, saté, shaved ice cream, Vietnamese spring rolls, bao buns and even organic pizzas. Hello, this sounds perfect! And to top it off, this festival is going to be held on the beach and if the weather stays like this it will even be sunny. YES!

Besides eating the tastiest street food snacks all day long, there’s more! You can relax with lounge music from the 80s and 90s (how nice is this?!), dance with your bare feet in the sand on tunes of the best DJs and enjoy… Karaoke! Yes, I know where I’ll be. I’ll order spring rolls, bao buns and then sing until I can’t talk anymore!
