Trip Report Amsterdam: the food : tip report day 1

Jump to last reply

We arrived in Amsterdam this morning after traveling via United from Houston. This trip report focuses on the food . On the flight, we had an airplane omelette which sustained us until we checked into the Ambassade Hotel at 9:30 am. The room was not ready, so we strolled along the Sinegel towards the Hermitage. Wee stopped at a nondescript cafe and had coffees and Appel tart.

The hermitage has an exhibition focusing on the Silk Road which I recommend not only for the exhibit, but for he siZe,which is not overwhelming. It also has some beautiful views of thE Amstel River. From there, we headed to he Leipdseplein, for lunch. I had been to the leidseplein many years ago, and was this time disappointed by the tourist nature of all the
restaurants. So, we kept walking and went to a small restaurant on Kerkstraat, which was a few blocks away. They had breakfast and lunch. I had the chicken satay and my husband had lamb meatballs, and it was just what we needed to tide us over until ...

2 pm checkin at the Ambassade. Our room looks over the Singel and we can see der fieve fleigen, restaurant and we promptly take a nap, until we are awaken by a chorus of singers.outside on the canal. It's a lovely way to wake up.

For dinner, our hotel recommends Proeverij at prinsengracht 274, which we thoroughly
Enjoy. DH and I both order the chefs menu, which includes lamb pate, stuffed mackerel and bread pudding for 45 Euros. We have, and enjoy, a German Pinot noir, followed by a chianti.

Afterwards, we stroll the Jordaan, pass the Anne Frank huis! and get caught in a rainstorm on the way home.

Life is good.

Kudos to the
Ambassade Hotel for its excellent lighting.
