Amsterdam is a city with mixed cultural influences from all over the world. Therefore you’ll find restaurants offering dishes from all regions of the world. The locals of Amsterdam have embraced the international cuisines probably even more than their own. This has to do with the lack of creativity of the Dutch in the kitchen. A typical home made Dutch dish would consist of cooked potato’s, cooked vegetables of choice and baked meat. Usually little extra flavours from herbs and spices are added. This explains why we like international cuisines so much. This said, there are a few restaurants that do succeed to serve the Dutch cuisine tastefully, with some French influences.
