Amsterdam is filled with a variety of great restaurants and cafes, which line the canals. Coffee houses which sell ‘stronger’ substances, can also be found and there is a great variety and mix of people trying the local specialities. During winter Dutch pea soup with vegetables, bacon and sausage is a great way to ward off the cold and Stamppot, a dish made of mashed potatoes and vegetables, is also delicious. Be sure to try oliebollen – Dutch doughnuts sprinkled with powdered sugar. One of the Netherlands most famous exports is Heineken and the factory tour is very popular.
