Full description
Get to know the multicultural side of Amsterdam through its diversity in food on a tasty private tour.

Follow your local around the 'Indische Buurt' in East Amsterdam where you'll discover all about Amsterdam's roots. Nowadays, this area is represented by Turkish, Moroccan and Surinamese ethnicities that make the city so vibrant and open.

Step into local hotspots like the Badhuis theater, a place for cultural meetings that functioned as a public bathhouse in earlier years. Here, you'll get a taste of some Moroccan flavor with a typical fresh Briwat & mint tea tasting.

Along the way, you'll stroll through the sculpture-rich Oosterpark, a local recreation spot that will lead you to your next tasting: the best local Baka Bana place in town in a traditional Surinamese 'Warung'. Dip the baked banana in yummy peanut sauce for an extra twist.

Time for a local market. Visit the best market in the East, offering a range of fresh vegetables, meats, cheese, nuts and more! Friendly reminder: the market is closed on Sundays.

Ready for more food? Enjoy a typical Iraqi Kebab! You'll even get to see how the fresh bread is made in the traditional oven! Here, you'll get a taste of the friendliness of Eastern service & cuisine.

For a sweet ending, try Turkish coffee and Baklava served fresh from the local Turkish bakery around the corner!

Great experience with a very nice guide

We met Silvino at the meeting point on time and immediately set off for the first location. We were always greeted very friendly in the selected restaurants and did not have to wait long for our tastings. There was a Moroccan specialty, a Surinamese, an Iraqi and finally a Turkish dessert. The portions were okay, we found the Surinamese restaurant particularly tasty and appealing, where we also stopped in the evening. The very best, however, was the visit to a market where we tried "Fladder" and "Worst" at a Surinamese stand. Looked creepy, but tasted great! Pure Adventure. If you eat squid tentacles, you will get your money's worth here! Silvino was surprised at how adventurous we were, but that was our absolute highlight! RECOMMENDATION!!!
