How does this work?
This is a self-guided food tour. Once you’ve booked your time slot, you’ll get a booking confirmation email with a link to download your PDF guide. Read the instructions to get started. Make sure you scan your iAmsterdam city card with our local food hero at the first stop. Please ensure your iAmsterdam city card is valid during time of use.
Can I get one copy for the entire family?
If you’re enjoying this experience with other iAmsterdam city card holders, please make sure everyone gets their cards scanned by the friendly staff of the first location. Also make sure everyone has a copy of the PDF guide on their phones.
Is this an all-inclusive food tour? What's included?
The food is not included. This is a PDF guide that takes you to 6 – 8 family-owned businesses, filled with the stories behind the establishments and the food you’ll taste. Order according to our recommendation at each stop and pay as you go. What’s more? Tidbits about the neighbourhood and the Albert Cuyp Market, as well as restaurant recommendations for the rest of your stay.
How many stops are there?
We have 8 foodie stops in total. All of them are beloved local mom and pop shops, market stands and one iconic brand that’s swept the nation by storm since 1941 — and you’ll meet the first family that ever franchised the brand.
What's on the menu?
If you must know, it’s a spread of Amsterdam’s best traditional Dutch, Surinamese, Japanese and Israeli street foods. Starting with the nation’s favourite croquette (deep-fried ragout), followed by Suriname’s national celebratory dish, herring and kibbeling (fried cod), Amsterdam’s best poffertjes (baby pancakes) and stroopwafel (syrup waffle), delicious Japanese takoyaki balls, Israeli smoked meats and twice-fried fries with a special Dutch sauce combo. Come hungry.
How much does the food cost?
After some cool discounts and deals, the total bill is around 20 EUR. For real.
How much walking is involved and how long would it take?
The total walking time is a cool 10 minutes. Sure, you could zipline your way down the market and neighbourhood with your mouth wide open. But it’s a marathon, not a sprint. There are things to see, shops around you, plus devouring the stories, ordering and waiting time, etc. It’ll take you around 1,5 hours to 2 hours in total.
Are the stalls always open?
Even God needs a break, so no. Sometimes, our local food heroes go on vacation, just like the rest of us. But 6 stalls will always be open.
Can I do this tour if I don't have data on my phone?
This PDF guide contains links to Google Maps for all the foodie stops. Though these places are all really close to each other, we’d advise feeding your phone some data to get around with ease.
I'm a vegetarian / vegan. Can I join?
Vegetarians, rejoice! We have veggie options for all stops except for two (fish and meat). Vegans, we’re sorry. This country runs on butter and eggs.
Which language is this in?
It’s exclusively in English.
