Amsterdam Ice Cream, Etc.

Kat Apr 7, 2011 06:42 AM

Hello - Getting ready for a trip to Amsterdam in a couple months and am looking for good ice cream places, particularly places with black licorice ice cream, my favorite and impossible to find at home. Also, if you were a mom with a kid and on a tight budget, where would you go for an early dinner (6 p.m. or so)? Most of the sandwich places seem to close by 5 p.m. We'll mostly be in Museumplein , Jordaan and around Artis Zoo. My spouse will be working most nights and although we'll have an apartment, I don't want to cook every night of my vacation! Thank you.

    Why not pancakes? Dutch style of course. I'm just a tourist in Amsterdam, and am going to be there in a month for my honeymoon, but we've gotten really cheap, filling meals at various pancake places. Pancake Bakery is a good one.

      Dinner with a kid near Artis = the burgermeester (best organic hamburger in town).
      www.burgermeester.eu . Best icecreams: Pisa Icecream, scheldeplein (near Rai), IJScuypje 1e van der Helststraat (next to the Albert Cuyp market) or van der Linden icecream Nieuwendijk 183 (near Dam).

        Appreciate the suggestions - I an not a pancake fan, but my son is, so maybe we'll go once. Ice cream places sound good, I'll Google them!
