    Walk everywhere
    The tram is weird and you can get everywhere by foot in like no time. It's also how you'll see more of the architecture, end up in crafts fairs, and find an ice cream place whose name you wish you could remember so you could recommend it but all you can recall is that a scoop of strawberry and a scoop of macadamia go really nicely together.

    My favorite coffee shop (winkety wink wink). They have a spooky cat named Bowie and the vibe is πŸ˜—πŸ‘Œ Also, milkshakes.

    Make a reservation because it fills up quick, but it's tasty as hell. Split the Dutch Ricedish with someone for a sampling of all the Dutch food they serve (and eat more than your share of the stew with mustard seeds when said someone is distracted).

    Bar Oldenhof
    I loved this place, it has a real speakeasy vibe. The staff is lovely (they helped me into my coat and called me miss). Last time I was there they made me a cocktail with a 100 year-old liquor and it was dope.

    Het Stuivertje
    I cannot recommend this place highly enough. We stumbled into it when another place fell through and it was easily the best food we had in Amsterdam, possibly on this earth.

    Eat 10,000 fries.

    Really cute brunch place, heavy on the Drake references.

    Okay so like, it's like the Disneyland of flowers. A lot of really beautiful tulips, but very manicured, too many people, and there are ladies dressed in old Dutch clothes to greet you when you go in while an organ basically plays It's A Small World. My advice is go, see it, then hop a barbed wire fence into an actual tulip field down the road.

    A really massive and diverse collection.

    Another v tasty brunch spot.

    Indonesian food
    There is tons of great Indonesian food in Amsterdam. I'd never had it before, it's very lemongrassy which I really liked. Get a rijsttafel, eat it all.

    The apple pie at de Bakkerswinkel
    I do not get jazzed about apple pie. I got jazzed about this apple pie. 🎢🎷
