Amona declares their food as “the taste of Jordan”. A simple yet intriguing slogan. And what’s more, some folk even say it’s the best falafel in the city.

2. Food Crib

Food Crib is the American fast food experience that has taken the locals by storm.

It’s a fascinating story that begins with an ice cream stand way back in the 80s. The crucial moment is when the proprietor discovered something called a hot dog. Then everything changed.

Fast forward to today, Food Crib sits in front of the most famous cultural landmark of the city, the Rijksmuseum. There, you can have it all, from coffee and ice cream to mind-blowing burgers, hot dogs, and salads.

We recommend the Junkyard Dog. A classic, brought to life by bratwurst, cheese, bacon, salami, piccalilli, and sauerkraut. And as well as being adored by the locals, it’s even loved by Hollywood celebrities like Chrissy Tiegan!

And last but certainly not least, our next food truck in Amsterdam is Rudi’s Original Stroopwafels. And what a great selection to leave you on. It’s cheap, delicious, and irresistibly nostalgic.

Rudi’s is endearing in every way.  A family-owned institution on one of the most iconic market streets in the city, the Albert Cuypstraat.

Sure, you can buy the original family recipe cookie in the grocery store. But nothing beats buying it fresh from the griddle while the inside is still warm and gooey.

The syrup interior is perfect for most. – but some like theirs with a chocolate topping. Regardless, it’s best enjoyed with a hot drink!
