How does this work?

This is a self-guided food tour. Food is not included. Once you’ve booked your time slot, you’ll get a booking confirmation email with a link to download your PDF guide. The guide contains all the addresses with clickable Google Maps links. Simply flash your individual PDF guide on your phone to get exclusive deals and discounts at 7 locations.

Can I buy one copy for the entire family?

In this day and age, you can easily share it with your entire clan with a simple click. But do us a favor. We’re an independent local business, just like the ones that you’ll support during this experience. Be a pal. Traveling in a group? We have a sweet deal for 2/3 persons or more. The more people buy, the bigger discount you get. Don’t be cheeky, simply get a family discount.

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?

You’ll hit up around 6 – 8 foodie stops. All of them are beloved mom-and-pop shops, market stalls 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 – 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 around 6 stops 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.

Can I do a few stops on one day and continue with the rest on another?

We recommend doing everything in one day to get the full experience. But if you’re full, we get it (it’s a lot of food).  So yes, you can continue on another day, if you’d like. But bear in mind that some stalls might be more crowded due to limited capacities. And check the opening times (subject to change) on your PDF guide before you go.

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.

Help! I can't find the answer to my question.

No sweat. Reach out to us right here.
