What you’ll do

What could be better than meeting up with a fellow foodie and enjoying a meal together in one of Europe’s most iconic cities? Join one of our hosts and immerse yourselves in the food culture of Amsterdam together.

Whether you dine at a traditional Dutch restaurant, trendy Malaysian eatery or a cozy bistro, you and your host can discuss all things food - from the best spots to pick up fresh produce to the markets that locals frequent.

Exchange recipes that you can try out at home and learn a bit about the Dutch culture through conversation and immersing yourself in its flavors.

Branch out if you like, and try something globally-influenced or flavors that have come straight from Malaysia. It’s all about getting that insider’s peep into the cuisine scene of Amsterdam, and we’re here to make that happen!

Don’t forget to pick their brain on more fabulous restaurants and markets to visit during your stay.
