Need Amsterdam recs

I am traveling for business with two colleagues staying near Keizersgracht in the center of town. Am looking for moderately priced dinner suggestions - we love all food. Want to try Dutch food and Indonesian as well as any other type as long as it is good.

  1. De Struisvogel. Singel 404 for awesome lunch / sandwiches. Lef for breakfast.

    I'd do a search on this board, too. There are quite a bunch of recent threads.

    1. Hi Sharon,

      not sure where exactly you're staying on Keizersgracht, which is quite long and pretty much curves around the entire center of Amsterdam.

      But you might want to head to Utrechtsestraat, which crosses Keizersgracht near Rembrandtplein. There is a great "eetcafe", a typical Dutch combined restaurant and bar, called "Vooges". Food is affordable and consistently good, Dutch / Mediterranean / International style. They also have a short but good wine list.

      And a little further down is Tempo Doeloe, a good Indonesian restaurants.

      There are many cafes, small restaurants and different kinds of boutiques on that street that should provide plenty of entertainment!
