Netherlands, Amsterdam Guide (B): What Makes Dining in Amsterdam So Addictive?

What Makes Dining in Amsterdam So Addictive?
Dining out anywhere, be it dining in Amsterdam or any other city, doesn’t necessarily have to be a white linen tablecloth and fine china sort of affair. It can be food on the go that you grab and take with you or it can be light fare in a casual restaurant. While there are plenty of articles online about all kinds of dining in Amsterdam, this isn’t one of them. Whether you’ve overindulged yourself at a coffeeshop, pub, or bar, you might need some quick, yet tasty and satisfying food. Just like your other vices, I’m here to tell you that you can add casual dining in Amsterdam to your new list of addictions.

Chips: First let’s talk about chips. Americans know this convenient comfort food as French fries, but here in Amsterdam they’re chips and they’re damn good. I’m going to try to control myself, but I honestly believe that chips are the world’s best street food. These aren’t your run of the mill fast food French fries that are soggy, limp, and greasy. No, these are crispy chunks of potato that are fresh and hot from the fryer with no trace of grease on them that pair perfectly with one of the many available sauces offered. Two of my favorites chip shops in Amsterdam are Manneken Pis and Chipsy King.

Manneken Pis

Manneken Pis tends to be the fan favorite where you can almost always expect long lines for their hot, crisp, and delicious chips. Choose from the Schanulleke (small) for €2,75, Urbanus (medium) for €3,75, or Obelix(large) ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
