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

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
