FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Is this an all-inclusive food tour?
The food is not included. This is a self-guided PDF guide that takes you to 6 family-owned businesses, filled with the stories behind the establishments and the food you'll taste. Order according to our recommendation at each stop and pay as you go. Flash your e-guide and you'll receive exclusive deals at 4 locations. What's more? Tidbits about the neighbourhood and the Albert Cuyp Market, as well as restaurant recommendations for you to hit up after this experience.
How much walking is there and how long does it take?
Honestly? The total walking time is a cool 10 minutes. Sure, you could zipline your way down the market and neighbourhood with your mouth wide open. But it's a marathon, not a sprint. There are things to see, shops around you, plus devouring the stories, ordering and waiting time, etc. It'll take you around 1 to 1.5 hours. Note: Only one alternative stop is situated in a different neighbourhood.
How many stops are there?
You'll hit up 6 foodie stops. All of them are beloved local mom and pop shops, market stands and one iconic brand that's swept the nation by storm since 1941 -- and you'll meet the first family that ever franchised the brand.
What's on the menu?
If you must know, it's a spread of Amsterdam's best traditional Dutch and ethnic street food. Starting with the nation's favourite croquette (deep-fried ragout), followed by Suriname's national celebratory dish, herring and kibbeling (fried cod), Amsterdam's best poffertjes (baby pancakes) and stroopwafel (syrup waffle), ending with twice-fried fries with a special sauce combo. Come hungry.
Are the stalls always open?
Even God needs a break on Sunday, so no. Sometimes, some vendors go on vacation, just like the rest of us. So what to do when this happens? We have alternative stops (with different foods) for the ones that get away, and brownie points for the mainstays. Opening times (subject to change) are always stated in this guide.
Can I do this tour if I don't have phone data?
This PDF guide contains links to Google Maps for all the foodie stops. Though these places are all really close to each other, we'd advise feeding your phone some data to get around with ease.
Can I get one copy for the whole family?
Sorry, the answer is no. Each purchase is for one person only. Of course, in this day and age, you could share it with your entire clan with a simple click. But do us a favour. We're an independent local business, just like the ones that you'll support during this experience. Be a pal. Get your own.
How much does the food cost?
After some cool discounts and deals, the total bill is around 15 - 20 EUR. For real.
Help! I'm vegetarian. Can I join?
Vegetarians, rejoice! We have veggie options for all stops except for one (fish). Vegans, we're sorry. This country runs on butter and eggs. But hey, stay tuned. We'll release a vegan version in the near future.
Which language is this in?
It's in the language you're reading right now. :)
Help! I can't find the answer to my question.
