Food Ex­pe­ri­ence

Maxx-M - - PROFILE -

When it comes to food, Am­s­ter­dam is a city that has much to of­fer. There are about 2,000 restau­rants, ready to of­fer you mouth­wa­ter­ing dishes from Asian to Euro­pean menu selections.


If you want to go to place where lo­cals eat, then Humphrey’s is the an­swer. This Nether­lands chain restau­rant of­fers a three-course menu at a fixed price. On the menu are eight ap­pe­tiz­ers from Beef Carpac­cio to Light Creamy Lob­ster Soup, eight en­trees from mixed grill of beef steak to salmon fil­let and eight desserts from bread pud­ding to home­made ice cream. Its also serves many

dif­fer­ent beers. The restau­rant area is fairly large but di­vided into three rooms so it still pro­vides an air of in­ti­macy.

New King

Lo­cated in Chi­na­town, New King is a Man­darin cui­sine venue that is quite busy and very pop­u­lar with lo­cals and tourist alike. Many Ori­en­tal peo­ple en­joy din­ner here. As with most restau­rants in Chi­na­town, the place is small and dur­ing din­ner hours when it gets very busy you might have to share your ta­ble with strangers. Try the Sui Kiau (shrimp won­ton) noo­dle soup and the com­bi­na­tion of roasted crunchy pork and honey-roasted sweet pork, duck fried rice and Mi­hoen a la Sin­ga­pore.

Har­ing Hap­pen

Your visit to Am­s­ter­dam can­not be com­plete with­out try­ing “Hol­landse Nieuwe”, also known as “Zoute Har­ing” or “Salty Her­ring”. This is found not at restau­rants but seafood stalls. It is sold as raw, salted, slimy her­ring fish ei­ther eaten on its own or with some onions and bread. This is one of the fa­mous snacks in Am­s­ter­dam.Try the her­ring plain with no onions: The onions are only needed for less tasty her­ring to dis­guise the lack of taste, ac­cord­ing to the owner of this stall.
