  • There's a shop in Amsterdam called Winkel, that specialises in Apple Pie.

  • They make the best apple pie in Amsterdam...

  • ...and with a bit of cream, it's delicious.

  • Throughout Amsterdam you will find fish stalls selling a variety of fish.

  • One of the specialities which the Dutch love is Haring.

  • You can also call it haring, but he just wants to say it in Dutch.

  • It's an acquired taste, huh?

  • So we've just had a look at a stroopwafel or syrup waffel being made fresh.

  • A stroopwafel, for those who don't know, is a Dutch treat which is second to none

  • and made fresh they are warm and delicious.

  • We found a shop that makes one product.

  • It's called Van Stapele Koekmakerij and it makes the best cookie in Amsterdam

  • This shop is situated in the centre of Amsterdam down a narrow street (Heisteeg 4).

  • This biscuit is a dark chocolate biscuit with a white chocolate filling.

  • Let's do it. Cheers.

  • We're at one of the Dutch food institutions, it's called Febo or food in the wall

  • Here you can pick food out of a wall or food vending machine. It's one of the strangest concepts here.

  • It's awesome.

  • The food is super tasty though. It's all fried and it's all good.

  • We're on the Princengracht or Prince's Canal

  • We're heading towards the best place to get pancakes in Amsterdam

  • This is called the Pancake Bakery and it is famous for their pancake.

  • These pancakes are big and delicious.

  • Amsterdam West is like foodie heaven.

  • One of my favourite coffee shops in Amsterdam is there, it's called Lot Sixty One and they make amazing coffee.

  • There are bicycles everywhere in Amsterdam. You've really got to be careful.

  • One of the best spots in Amsterdam West is De Hallen

  • There are food halls inside called De Foodhallen.

  • At this food hall you get one of the best cheese tostis in Amsterdam.

  • What's really amazing about these cheese tostis is that they put so much cheese that it seeps through while they are cooking it.

  • They put two kinds of Dutch cheese and spring onion. Gives it an amazing flavour.

  • It's really cheesy. Just like you

  • There's a place here called De BallenBar which make bitterballen.

  • Bitter balls are like crispy dough filled with some sort of ragu...

  • ...and it's fried and it's delicious.

  • Typical is to eat bitterballen with mustard

  • Usually it's made of beef.

  • I almost spilled mustard on my shoe.

  • If you like pancakes, then the Dutch equivalent is the thing for you, these are called poffertjes.

  • They are sugary, they are buttery, they are so good.

  • It's so unhealthy. Look how much butter they put.

  • We're heading into a place that claims they've got the best french fries in Amsterdam.

  • There's an article on the wall that says so.

  • We're going to check it out.

  • The best fries in Amsterdam look like this.
