"This was really fun and you can really go at your own pace. Come back to things when you feel full etc. I thought it would be awkward to go to the counter and say I’m on a self guided food tour… not at all. All the shop keepers were super happy to see me and help me. So delicious so much fun. Maybe space it out a little cause there is a lot to eat."

Can I buy one for the whole family?
In this day and age, you can easily share it with your entire clan with a simple click. But do us a favour. We’re an independent local business, just like the ones that you’ll support during this experience. Be a pal. Get your own.
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. The guide contains all the addresses with clickable Google Maps links. Simply flash your individual PDF guide on your phone to get exclusive deals, discounts and/or tastings at seven locations.
Is food included?
Nope, food is not included. This is a PDF guide that takes you to eight family-owned businesses. At all but one stop, you get a special tasting or discount off our recommended dish. Follow the instructions and pay as you go.
How much does the food cost?
After some cool discounts and deals, the total bill is around 20 EUR. For real.
I'm 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.
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 walking is involved and how long does 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.
