Dutch Treats

Amsterdam-Netherlands

Discover the old town, coupled with a few stops to taste Dutch Jenever (transparent liquor, similar to vodka) or do some cheese tasting, or slide a herring down your throats. 

DAY 01

Dutch Treats Tasting Tour!

  • Tag along with your Amsterdam tour guide and proceed for your tour. 

  • Whenever we enjoy (responsibly) an ice-cold Heineken we might order "Een Portie Bitterballen"  or a  Kaasschaaltje to go with it.

  • Or if you feel a bit hungry stop at the nearest snack bar for "Een Patatje Met", or eat from the wall: just insert a euro in a display of slots and pick your favourite "Tussendoortje", an in-between meals snacks, like a Kroket or a Frikadel. Typically, low-quality meat, but fat and greasy,  therefore tasty. 

  • Or keep an eye out for a herring vendor in a caravan to try some raw fish, preferably with onions and pickle. Recent immigrants brought along shoarma and kebab, which also tastes great after you had a couple of drinks.

  • Tougher characters will probably quench their thirst by drinking a few "Kopstootjes" (butt of the head).

  • For families, there is an alternative: pancakes and poffertjes. Every Dutch child loves them; I'm sure yours will too!

  • This tour takes a bit more time than a regular city walk, of course, 3 hours is about the minimum. 

  • 37.50 EUR Per Adult
  • 150 EUR Per Adult
  • Food and drinks

  • Souvenirs

A word from your tour guide: 

  • Although I wouldn't recommend Dutch cuisine to anyone, except my worst enemy maybe, we compensate this by having a large array of snacks and nibbly-bits.
