Unexpected Amsterdam


We are back in Amsterdam and this time we are visiting the best-hidden gems that are only visited by locals. So join us as we jump on our bike and experience Amsterdam like a local and hop by awesome bars, restaurants and shopping spots. We start the day with a leisurely free ferry ride to Amsterdam Noord where we have a typical Dutch breakfast at cafe Noorderlicht. With a full stomach, we travel to the Westergasfabriek in Amsterdam’s west to experience the city’s best chocolates at Tony’s Chocolonely, shop for some funky souvenirs and have lunch at Mossels and Gin. Next up, we start the day drinks at distillery Wynand Fockink. The distillery and tasting tavern is located in a little alleyway off the famous Dam and serves over 70 Dutch liqueurs and jenevers which are all made by hand on-site. We sample typical Dutch flavours like Half and Half and crowd favourite Salted Dutch Liquorice. Slightly tipsy we take the train to Amsterdam’s south to visit The World of Food. The former parking garage has been converted into a food hall and serves cuisines from all over the world like Surinamese and Ghanaian. To finish off the night we head back to the Red Light District for some light entertainment at Tonton Club where we enjoy old school arcade games with craft beers.
