Eating in Amsterdam Noord

The two restaurants I tried in Amsterdam Noord are definitely worth mentioning. Both of them had such a unique atmosphere, and mixed with delicious food, they are hard to beat. On our first night in Amsterdam, we ate dinner at Hanimeli & Cafe Demliq. I chose this restaurant off a map only because it was so close to our AirBnB, but I have craved it every day since. They have many seating options, with a lovely patio. You won’t be disappointed no matter where you end up. The decor is a mix of modern and industrial, with Turkish influences.

I was thrilled that they served Turkish coffee and tea. My travel buddy and I shared mezzes (Mediterranean appetizers). The complimentary bread and sauces the server brought us was warm. It is possibly my favourite dish! The other dishes were equally as amazing, all prepared to perfection. This restaurant is a foodie’s paradise. I would fly back to Amsterdam just for it!

Another morning, we ate breakfast at Fashion & Tea. It is one of the cute shops along Van der Pekstraat. With a beautiful selection of clothing and accessories, as well as delicious fare, this place is also worth the stop. The decor is light and pretty, with fresh flowers on every table.
