Amsterdam's Got it All...

Most major cities have thousands of choices from nearly every culture and sort of fusion you could imagine. Amsterdam is no different; in fact for such a small city, we have some of the most diverse kitchens on the planet, offering not only various cuisines, but also many food styles like vegetarian, vegan or raw food. Once again proving that Amsterdam is a cross-roads to Europe and a magnet for all sorts of people, the food is a clear representation of this...

 

Finding Good Life Food

Even though we all enjoy eating out from time to time, the worst part of going out is the uncertainty of what the chefs are using for ingredients and preparation methods. Unless you are eating in a Michelin star restaurant, you can never be certain about the quality. That is why we have created a section called Food & Drink; to try to highlight the finer places that are actually making an effort to procure and serve foods in a responsible, sustainable and healthy manner.

 

 

Many Styles, But The Quality Varies...

When you have options ranging from Ethiopian to Argentinean, Italian to Thai, American to the good ol’ Dutch cuisines, it is hard to know which to try. It is even harder when you consider that there are often multiple choices of each type of restaurant, but offering different levels of quality! Sadly, many Amsterdam restaurant owners take advantage of the amount of tourists visiting our beautiful city, and offer low quality food and service, at extremely high prices! Those are places you will no doubt want to give a miss...

 

How do I Know What's Good?

To start with, find out if a restaurant uses fresh or organic products, and if they take pride in the food they serve. If a restarant has an InLivin' Profile, it means they are definately doing something right, and you should give them a go!
