Located at the end of the gentrifying Admiraal de Ruijterweg, Speijkervet specializes in ‘Northern European Cuisine’ using farm-to-table and sea-to-table ingredients. Get your carnivore on for everything from goat confit and veal heart to North Sea oysters. For the weekly specials, the chefs buy a whole pig, cow or even deer, and work their way from its nose to its tail. Yes, offal-lovers, this place is the answer to your sad question: where can I get organ meat in Amsterdam? The food is hearty, fun, and lovingly prepared, and there’s no beating the prices either – entrees are all under €20.
The interior, a former bakery, is bright and cheerful, something like a cross between a Parisian café and a chi-chi cafeteria. It makes a welcoming setting for everything from first dates to big boisterous family dinners. Hooves-down, it’s one of our best dining bets in all of Amsterdam.
An unexpected take on Northern European cuisine that’s friendly, affordable and totally delicious.
