For one day, Friday November 28 get my latest Ebook: Food Lovers Guide to Amsterdam: How to Eat Well Along the Canals for free! Know someone planning a trip to Europe? Amsterdam’s Schipol Airport is one of the busiest on the continent and is the location of many layovers to other European destinations. Whether you are killing a few hours between flights, or if your itinerary includes the “Venice of the North” why not make the most of your time by exploring Amsterdam’s restaurant scene.
For my latest book on Kindle I decided to take a break from local maritime history. I love to travel and I love to eat and over the years I have compiled lots of information of Amsterdam’s restaurant scene. I have been going to Amsterdam since 1996 and it is one of my favorite cities to visit. Compared to New York, London or Paris, Amsterdam is small, easily walkable and home to over two thousand restaurants and bars. There are so many options crammed among the canals and side streets that it can become pretty confusing. The online review sites are a good start, but in most cases you learn more about the quirks of the customer and not the place itself. I have attempted to wade through all of this and with a combination of first hand research, tips from locals and fellow travelers as well as months worth of online research to create a guide you can carry on Kindle, laptop or other portable device.
First time visitors to Amsterdam are confronted with over two-thousand places to eat and drink. Learn tips on how to find great meals, cozy watering holes, and experience international flavors without burning a hole in your wallet. This quick guide will help you learn about traditional Dutch meals and snacks, as well as restaurant suggestions for an array of Dutch and ethnic restaurants. Contains listings for dozens of eating establishments including 30 highly rated and affordable ethnic restaurants.
