True, no one sighs over Dutch food the way they do over, say, French dishes – mayo-slathered fries after multiple beers notwithstanding. So we’ll just call Amsterdam’s fabulous choice of hot global eats, from Indonesian rice tables to mod Moroccan plates to Basque-inspired pintxos, our little secret. There are some superb traditional and contemporary Dutch restaurants too, as well as seafood eateries, while the Netherlands’ former colonies - not only Indonesia but also Suriname, with its Caribbean influence - spice up the local cuisine. Whatever you choose, meals here are something to linger over as the candle burns low on the tabletop. Here are some of Amsterdam's finest places to dine.
