The Good Companion Amsterdam: for fish and chips and more

21 February 2017

are you a fish and chips lover? meet the Good Companion Amsterdam

The Good Companion Amsterdam in the Westerstraat  in Amsterdam is a new place for fish and chips. Founders Niek and Enno are bringing the British comfort food to Amsterdam and we don’t mind at all. ‘Cause finding good fish and chips in Amsterdam is kind of impossible sometimes.

Niek and Enno decided to set up a crowdfunding campagne to get all the money they need for this new food bar. In just ten days they received more than 85% of their hoped target. Good job!

ALSO FOOD FOR VEGETARIANS AT The Good Companion Amsterdam

Good, fish and chips! Vegetarian? No worries, The Good Companion has a solution for that as well. You can find Tofush & Chips on the menu, made from tofu. I need to try that one! Beside that you can order the Catch of the Day, the catch is changing every day ’cause it’s made from fish that they usually don’t use when they are fishing for something specific. This fish will be thrown back in the ocean and won’t survive, The Good Companion is using this fish as the ‘catch of the day’.
