Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Amsterdam

Bern
There are few pleasures quite so indulgent as melting up a big pot of cheese and dipping bread into it - and Bern is one of the few places in Amsterdam that does a good fondue.
Broodje Bert
Don't judge this little treasure from its exterior, instead, go in and have a bite of their sandwiches, which will power you all day.
Burgermeester
A burger-shaped delight, with meats from tuna to deer and an unhealthy slathering of sauces. Burger making done by people who clearly love burgers.
Café Thijssen
A nice large terrace here means you have a good shot at getting a seat and taking advantage of Café Thijssen's enviable location.
Cote Ouest
The best place to eat on the Dam Square, which means you should certainly give it a try, especially if you are hankering for some mussels.
Da Portare Via
A pizza place, to put it at its most blunt, but a place that makes very very good pizza, bursting with flavour and reasonably priced.
De Engelbewaarder
This a delightful old gem of a brown café, with an air of literary charm. A chance to get away from the bustle of the more touristy spots.
Envy
At Envy, your meal will be built up from tiny but exquisitely formed dishes, sort of like a premium tapas place. Great food in a great location.
Foodism
A snack place that morphs into serving dinner when the sun goes down, Foodism has a brash, artsy style that is very welcoming.
Foodware
Good takeaway food that changes with whatever fresh ingredients the shop has got in that morning.
