What you’ll do

Spend some time in the Jordaan district of Amsterdam, an artsy bohemian area that reads like a grid of tiny lanes jam-packed with quirky bars, Malaysian eateries and food stalls.

In a personalized experience with one of our Amsterdam hosts by your side, you will eat and drink your way through this historic neighborhood, gaining a feel for the flavors of Amsterdam and her heritage.

Dutch cheese is world renowned, so dive into as many samples as you can stomach, or try some Dutch herring. The local method of consumption is to grab the tiny fish by its tail and… bottoms up!

Let your host lead you from bars to eateries and ask them about traditional Dutch food. You might be surprised to learn that Malaysian food, Malaysia being a former Dutch colony, has made a large impression on the cuisine scene in Amsterdam.

The Dutch are also the world’s largest consumers of licorice (drop). Who knew? Why not purchase some far out flavor as a present for those back home?
