We were recommended Tjin's Toko by a local food guide. we were very curious to try Suriname food as it is not commonly available in Australia. It was not what I was expecting (I was expecting a cafe or restaurant, whereas it is more of...More

Right within the wonderful Albert Cuyp market area, this wonderful shop/eatery is a must when in Amsterdam. Only 4 seats, but that's not a problem, you can sit outside while sipping on some of their beers, a rather large collection of international ones, which you...More

I just walked in front of this store and I noticed it was really crowded and out of experience when a place is like that it's whether they're giving things away or they're selling something really good. In this case it was the 2nd one...More

What I like about this store is that it keeps changing and expanding/adapting their offer. For years it's been a store where things were piled up, but if you asked for daun pandang (Indonesian leaves you need for making satay) they could just pick it...More

Before visiting Tjin's this past week I knew little about the food of Surinam. We were welcomed there during a Hungry Birds tour (highly recommended) and I was overwhelmed with the tastes, especially a chicken sandwich with Javanese chilies in a warm baguette. Heaven. The...More

This was another interesting stop on our food tour. Their specialty sandwiches are flying out the door at lunch time. Be sure to ask for some of their homemade hot sauce, if you like spicy. Take a walk around the small grocery area to find...More

Step into a different country, while in the middle of Amsterdam. Tjin's Toko is the place that oozes Surinam, and also Indonesia. It's where the local Dutch go to get their ingredients for cooking true Indonesian and other Asian dishes, a custom that started after...More
