With summer among us and universities on break many of the younger travelers are on a budget so thin even Amanda Bynes would be impressed. With all the chronic smoking and walking about you are guaranteed to work up a hefty appetite. Lucky for you, for the amount you would drop into the Peep Show you can afford a deliciously tasting snack or meal.
When I think of Amsterdam the first thing that pops into my head is stinky fish. Not the smell of your friends fingers from the previous nights whore, but really tasty lightly pickled herring. Similar to your whores, you will not want to eat any Herring from any vendor, not all are created equal. My go to is located on the Haarlemmerstraat close to the Singel Canal. A small fish monger that will serve you some great pickled herring with pickles and onions, or some fried herring or shrimp. All very reasonable priced and delicious.
A couple worthy snacks can also be found close to Albert Cuyp Market. Vietnamese spring rolls made by hand by a wonderful woman of that region. Fried to perfection and dipped in her famous sauces you can’t go wrong. In the Market you can also find poffertjes, miniature puffy pancakes topped with butter, powdered sugar and even Nutella. Dangerously Good!
For more of a filling meal, hit up Wok to Walk with a few locations throughout the city center or Maoz Falafel. Both are cheap and good. For the change giggling in your pocket you can afford a decent meal that will fulfill you to the morning.
