You’re going to a bachata festival in Amsterdam and you’re on a tight budget. You’ve danced all night and now you’re hungry.
You want to try local and international food, but you don’t want to break the bank. Here are some options for you:
Skek is a student-run restaurant and bar near Amsterdam’s Red Light District that fuses traditional Dutch food with all the newest eating trends.
They host live-music nights too, which really adds to Skek’s already stellar atmosphere.
If there’s one group who appreciates a good bargain, it’s students, and Skek doesn’t disappoint, with dishes costing around €13 euros on average.
Dumplings is an epic food stall on the corner of Westerpark that dishes out traditional wallet-friendly snacks that have been eaten on the streets of Beijing for centuries.
The menu at Dumplings encompasses Chinese crepes made with mung beans, noodles, egg and spring onions, doused in soy sauce with optional roasted pork or duck.
On top of that they serve a great variety of pork and vegetable dumplings, bao buns, spring rolls and noodle plates that will fill your tum for as little as €6.50.
Thrill Grill is perfect for anyone who wants a charcoal-grilled gourmet burger in Amsterdam for a reasonable price.
Most of the burgers are just over €10, and all the ingredients are locally sourced and natural: pure Dutch beef, potatoes from a local farmer and luscious Dutch gouda cheese – even their toasted burger buns are organic.
There are burgers for all tastes, but our top picks are the Peruvian beef thriller, the vegan Beyond burger and Asian chicken.
