Healthy hotspots in Amsterdam

I’ve lived in Amsterdam for 4 years. I love it that there’s so much to do in this city. And because it’s quite small, everything is always nearby.

Restaurant Atelier in Amsterdam

Have you already been to restaurant Atelier in Amsterdam? They opened two years ago but they just renewed their interior and their menu. I have to admit that when I first looked at the map I thought it was a bit far out. It’s located behind the Olympic Stadion. But I found out it’s less […]

Just opened: Lab-44 in Zaandam

Zaandam is a small town on the other side of the IJ river from Amsterdam. Although tourists often go to Zaandam (there are still many old windmills there), locals often think it’s too far away. It’s quite a shame because it’s only a half an hour boat trip and there are a few nice food […]

New: Restaurant MOER in Amsterdam

Japanese restaurant Sushilee

Ask anyone in Amsterdam about the ‘Zuidas’ and they’ll tell you it’s a business district filled with big offices. But there’s much more to the Zuidas area than that. I’m discovering more and more really cool places in that area, that are also open on Saturdays when the offices are closed. I already wrote about […]
