AMSTERDAM ITINERARY - FOR REFERENCE AND SUGGESTION
Going to be in Amsterdam in from 3/10 - 3/13 - been to town 8 times and am planning to hit some favorites but wanted to give a scope to see if it came up with any good suggestions. So here it goes:
Dinner - La Perla - Nduja pizza - so good!
Lunch - Provisions from De Kaaskamer - Spanish ham, cheese and olives.
Velminkcx - French Fries - so good!
Dinner - Japanese Pancake World - one of my favorites all time for Amsterdam and Europe as a whole. A one of a kind experience and with limited hours. The last 3 times I've been they've been closed.
Lunch - Broodje Bert - Grilled Salami and Cheese Sandwich or the famous buger
Dinner - Restaurant Marius - god I love this place, my wife will be so jealous but it has to be done.
Hope this helps some of you all and please add suggestions if you see fit!
Great choices! I can recommend another option for lunch: try something Surinamese. I would suggest having a "broodje pom" (a sandwich with a delicious casserole with pomtajer, chicken and meat), my favorite place to have this is the Tokoman (across Waterlooplein). Don't forget to order it with "pepers and zuur" (hot peppers and pickles), you will love it!
And another nice chocolate shop is Unlimited Delicious in the Haarlemmerstraat. They also have delicious pastries.
Glad to see some love for La Perla's Pizza Nduja, it's one of my favorite things to eat in Amsterdam.
If you love cheese, might I suggest a visit to L'Amuse
http://www.lamuse.nl/ for truly superior cheeses. And then don't forget to go nextdoor to bakery Le Fournil, some of the best bread in Amsterdam. Both are a bit from city center, but easily reached by public transport.
Another great cheese shop, a bit more centrally located, is Kef
which has the advantage of having a little area where you can sit down and have a glass of wine while sampling their cheese.
