Meet Your Guide at the Albert Cuyp Market

Get ready for an amazing lunch exploring the top street foods of Amsterdam. Meeting in front of the market entrance you will be greeted by your friendly storytelling guide who will lead your group through a culinary journey through the Dutch capital.

Stroopwafels and Poffertjes

Freshly made and full of sugary deliciousness, sample two of Amsterdam's top sweets. Try the iconic Stroopwafel, the wonderful pastry that resembles a cookie more than the giant waffles made by their Belgian neighborhoods.

Next, you will sample the tasty bite-sized pancakes, Poffertjes. Made right in front of you, see how these fluffy cakes of goodness are fried up for your enjoyment.

Fresh Seafood Right from the North Sea

Fish is a staple of Dutch cuisine, especially in Amsterdam. Located conveniently on the North Sea, there is a plethora of fresh high-quality seafood caught each day. Much of this goes directly to the Cuyp Market where two amazing dishes are prepared for you to try.

Cultures around the globe have their own take on fried fish. From Fritto Misto in Italy to the Fish and Chips found across the sea in England, there is nothing like a perfectly fried piece of whitefish. In Amsterdam, this takes the form of Kibbeling, arguably the most delicious of all.

Don't worry, not everything on this experience is deep-fried, far from it! Next, you will try pickled herring. A staple of Dutch cuisine for centuries, it may sound strange at first but it is sure to become a new favorite.


The Dutch love beer. What goes perfectly with a pint of Amstel or Heineken? Bitterballen. These delectable fried meatballs are the ideal finger food while taking on the pubs of Amsterdam. You will sample some of the city's best.

Modern Amsterdam's Asian Influence

Though traditional Dutch dishes are abundant in the market, many of the best stalls present the foods of Amsterdam's vibrant immigrant population. Many of the city's immigrants come from Indonesia and Vietnam, the direct result of the Netherlands' colonial influence in southeast Asia.

As a result, you will find a fusion of Indonesian and Dutch flavors. Try a mouthwatering chicken kebab paired with a peanut sauce words cannot describe. Next head to Vietnam to sample spring rolls with the flavors straight from Saigon.

Plenty of Beer

Lastly, the tour concludes at one of the area's best beer bars, where you will try a flight of local craft beers. Taste what makes Dutch beer so special from the brewing process to the hops that produce such great aroma and flavor. Above all, we hope you enjoy this exploration of Amsterdam's culinary wonder.

We had an amazing time. The food was all amazing and the market was very pretty. There were tulips everywhere, very cool! I was a bit hesitant about Dutch food as my kids are picky eaters. Once they tried the first pancakes though, they trusted the guide. Everything was delicious. We even all tried the pickled fish and were so happily surprised!
