Top Amsterdam Specialist Food Shops

Of course, supermarkets have taken over in Amsterdam just like most cities in northern Europe. But if you’re looking for that special ingredient or foodie gift to take home, here are a host of specialist food shops you’ll love to visit…

12 of Amsterdam’s Best Specialist Food Shops

  • Volkskruidentuin (Kinkerstraat 142) – for spices, preserved lemons and all sorts of North African goodies.
  • Kaaskamer (Runstraat 7) – for wonderful cheeses.
  • Dun Yong (Stormsteeg 9) – for sushi equipment, soba noodles, Thai basil and all things Asian.
  • Tel (Kloveniersburgwal 11-13) – for the freshest fish and seafood.
  • Slagerij de Leeuw (Utrechtsestraat 92) – for meat, pâté, charcuterie and so on.
  • Duikelman (Ferdinand Bolstraat 66-68) – for kitchen equipment and cookbooks (including my own!).
  • Kookboekhandel (Haarlemmerdijk 133) – for cookbooks in Dutch and English.
  • Puccini Bomboni (Singel 184 and Staalstraat 17) – one for the chocolate lovers…
  • Kef (Marnixstraat 192, Czar Peterstraat 137 and Van der Pekplein 1) – because you can never have too much cheese on a list about Amsterdam food shops.
  • Frank’s Smokehouse (Wittenburgergracht 303) – which is busy selling Frank’s amazing smoked fish, meat and more to all the best restaurants in Amsterdam.
  • Ibericus (Haarlemmerstraat 93) – jamón, chorizo, lomo… need I say more, fellow pork lovers?
  • Marqt (multiple locations) – because we’re still grateful that this chain of upscale fancy supermarkets exists (even if they do have a habit of stacking shelves at 5 pm, just like Albert Heijn…)
