Hungry Birds

A fruitful chance encounter led Zosia Konieczna and Esther-Hanna Van der Meer to connect over home-cooked dishes in a remote province of Indonesia, shortly after the two had graduated with degrees in tourism management. After bonding in Indonesia, Zosia went on to Vietnam for her first food tour, which inspired her to start a street-food experience in Amsterdam; Esther-Hanna was game, and so their food-centric enterprise was hatched. When the two aren’t leading hungry travellers around the city, they’ll likely be tucking into their own favourite dishes.

Spectacularly spiced layer cakes, crispy Dutch kroketten, caramel-filled stroopwafels fresh from the waffle iron and juniper-laced jenever

Where you'll go
You’ll begin your food-focused experience in the gezellige side streets of De Pijp. You’ll start at Indonesian eatery Toko Ramee, try spiced layer cake and learn about the culinary legacy of post-colonial immigration to Amsterdam. You’ll visit a Netherlands-based fast-food chain with a long local history and hear about the neighbourhood’s culture on your way to a fishmonger. You’ll visit a global food store specialising in Surinamese cuisine, indulge in carb-laden goodness at a traditional Jewish bakery, swing by street-food stalls and visit a traditional brown café.
What you'll sample
During your De Pijp experience, you’ll savour traditional Dutch dishes, Indonesian treats and Surinamese street food. You’ll sample Indonesian pasties, spekkoek layer cake, made-in-front-of-you croquettes, fresh local herring and eel, coffee and prettily plaited babka, the local favourite stroopwafel (still warm and melting in your hands) and aged cheeses. Hungry for more? You’ll wrap up with a visit to a traditional brown café and a tasting flight of jenever (Dutch gin). Your route can be tailored to suit your tastes.
