Did you know that Amsterdam has a fair share of crazy attractions in all domains? This includes restaurants and dining spots that are created to stand out. Explore these weird eateries for a unique experience. Read on to find out more about such unusual restaurants after your Amsterdam private tours.
De Pindakaaswinkel (The Peanut Butter Shop)
Is peanut butter one of your favorites? Enjoy the world’s first store devoted entirely to Peanut butter. You can try 10 varieties of newly ground, natural peanut butter mixed with coconut oil and ocean salt. Some of them are spiked with items like date, raisin-fennel, espresso, and chili pepper-lemongrass. The white chocolate and caramel ocean salt are great options to try out. Get a Pindabaas (translated as Peanut Boss) tee to fulfill your love for a bread spread.
The Avocado Show
Avocado lovers will not be able to resist this spot in the stylish De Pijp hood. The place says, “the time is ripe” for an all-avocado café. All items on the menu can be separated into “fancy” and “schmancy” groups. It is all made with the on-pattern foods and is served with high elegance. The pick of the lot is the Bun Burger, an avocado split into equal parts vertically, sandwiching a big scoop of ossenworst, Dutch smoky raw beef sausage. The room is small and is mostly filled with long lines of those waiting. You can meet many similar avocado-enthusiasts as you queue up.
This café converts the less attractive foods like veggies and fruits, day-old bread, and additional meat and fish into something in high demand at Amsterdam’s supermarkets. They make their very own beer from disliked potatoes. With about 33% of food being sent to waste around the world, this is an eatery that reminds us the importance of food. It’s situated in the once-neglected and now-renewed Czaar Peterstraat neighborhood of Amsterdam’s Eastern Docklands.
With two bistros loaded up with weed-using customers as neighbors, this place offers something on account of the high demand. This is a joint with tiny hole in the wall and is located in the central 9 Small Streets (De 9 Straatjes) area. The chips are fried twice then arranged, delicately salted, and distributed in a paper cone. People have the choice of more than 20 sauces allowed on top. Some people love the thick, light yellow mayonnaise, kids prefer the ketchup-mustard-mayo combination, yet the Dutch favorite is curry-seasoned Joppiesaus.
Pllek is located in a section of the previously huge ship-building complex NDSM located in the artistically pleasing Amsterdam Noord. The interior of this place is very attractive and has a curved profile. These are made out of shipping containers. Notably, it offers excellent food, and fast, supportive administration. This is true even when you are filled. It is recommended to grab a table upstairs for the stunning view of the enormous picture window. There is a passing voyage ship. There is also an option to sit at an outdoor table with the little beach in the front. Reach there by taking a short, free ship ride over the IJ River.
There are a lot of things to explore at the NDSM spot. This includes artists’ collections, celebrations, and music. You may also step into the IJ-kantine, a café bar located in the previous company canteen that operates old movies of boats being fabricated and started at the industrial facility.
In case you are reserving a table at Bierfabriek, you must be a big fan of chicken and beer. This industrial ambiance restaurant is famous for these two items. They offer delicious, smoky, charcoal-rotisserie unfenced chicken with great fries. There are also three collections of in-house-blended lager: Nero, Rosso, or unfiltered Purr pilsner. The floor reminds you of a 1980s roadhouse. Beer lovers with a big appetite should look for a table with a larger tap, where you pour beer on your own.
This place is not very easy to find, but worth the exploration. You get to feast in Amsterdam’s focal jewelry district along a romantic street accompanied by a cool melodic neon clock. This is a place built from a previous stable and cigar plant and is named for a peculiar ’60s Flemish TV hero who is said to be “a blend of 007 and Batman.” Dutch dishes are the major attractions here, but Asian and Portuguese cuisines are also available. After supper, head to Claire’s Ballroom upstairs for some live music, particularly jazz, and other performances.
This place has a reputation for offering some great views apart from great food. It is practically built over water, so you have to get there through a pedestrian bridge. The outer appearance is dominated by red and white while the interior dissolves industrial minimalism and old broadcasting equipment beautifully to bring a vintage ambiance. Catch the sunset from here if you visit.
