Meet My Neighborhood: Amsterdam West

Things I like Things I love 2

These weeks the founders of the popular concept store Things I like Things I love will recommend their favorites in Amsterdam West on the City is Yours blog. This time: Food!


Sanne and Petra love food and have checked out a lot of places in West. ‘Although there are big supermarkets around, we prefer to go to het Biohuis to buy fresh fruits, juices, yoghurt and granola for breakfast. At least two times a week we go to Ufuk, a Turkish restaurant to take away their lentil soup for lunch. A spot you shouldn’t miss when being around is Natuurlijk Smullen, a biological snackbar a bit further away from our store. It’s the first biological snackbar in the Netherlands and they have about the same menu as a regular one but then – of course – everything is bio.’

‘Spending an evening in West? Go to Café Cook! For a beer, a glass of wine or food! Our favorites on the menu are the steak and onion soup.’
