4 Street Foods to Try in Amsterdam

One of my favorite things to do while traveling is to sample the street foods of the city I’m in. I feel like it’s a great way to taste local flavors and also an easy way to try lots of different foods, since street food tends to be great as a sharing snack! Here’s my four favorites from our recent trip to Amsterdam.

Febo

Fast food + vending machine = awesome. This is the kind of thing that makes me wonder how it’s not in the States, it seems like everything we’d love! Ham and cheese croquettes, burgers, and more hot and fresh from it’s own individual cubby. Don’t worry, each one has a timer in the back so you don’t get stale food, and most Febos have counter service as well for things they can’t put in the machine like ice cream! Plus, this place is open 24 hours.

Stubbe’s Haring

A traditional Dutch snack! You can eat herring here whole (bones and all) or get the chopped up bone-free version like we tried. I expected to not like it (I’m a big texture person), but it was actually very tasty and not at all smelly or difficult to eat. Dutch-style sushi!

Foodhallen

Not sure you can really count this place as “street food”, but it’s multiple style options and fast service give it that local stand feel, in a trendy food court setting. There’s really something for everyone here, from bao sandwiches and burritos to croquettes and egg waffle ice cream cones! While you’re there, also check out the Maker Store!

Original Stroopwafels from Albert Cuyp Markt

Stroopwafels are ubiquitous in Amsterdam, but I recommend these. The stall is located in the Albert Cuyp Market, and they’ll make fresh ones right in front of you to order. Gooey, cinnamon-y, and delicious.
