Get A Munchie Fix in Amsterdam
Men and women going to Amsterdam often get the munchies. Go figure. By having an endless offering of dining places, take-away stores, as well as street vendors — the choices may be mind-boggling.
On a more recent trip to Amsterdam, we managed to make it our search to find 10 awesome “coffeeshops” (a.k.a, marijuana cafes) as well as places nearby to satiate even the most serious weed-induced food cravings. We simply did 8. These things happen…especially if you’re truly doing the “research.” That said, we scouted out coffeeshops as well as the nearby tasty, reasonably priced grub — such as some Dutch classics — which ranked “high” on our list.
The coffeeshop: Old Church Coffeeshop and Juice Bar. Standing in the shadow from the 800-year-old Oude Kerk, the oldest building/parish church in Amsterdam, Old Church Coffeeshop and Juice bar is a fave owing to superfriendly staff along with the excellent location – if you possibly could nab a window seat downstairs, you’ll score front row sights of the church and the square.
Close by munchie fix: Pomme Frites at High Snack. Positioned diagonally across the square, this take-out spot serves up pomme frites (that’s French fries, of course) slathered in sauce. (Remember fondly the scene in Pulp Fiction exactly where the characters speak about the way the fried potatoes in Amsterdam happen to be covered in mayonnaise? This is what they were referring to.) While mayonnaise is the most well-liked topping, there are many options that will gratify any kind of craving – such as garlic sauce, chili sauce, tartar sauce, as well as curry sauce and gravy. Ketchup can also be an option – so why would you get some thing you always have in the usa? Consumers may layer on a mixture of flavors at 50 cents for each sauce. The later the night gets, the more toppings we see piled on. These high-carb treats come nestled in a paper cone and cost around $7 – depending on how “sauced” you get.
