Amsterdam’s Best Apple Pie

There is one place in Amsterdam, where the Apple Pie is so famous, people line up for it. 

Where can you find Amsterdam’s best Apple Pie?

Well, it’s in central Amsterdam and right across from where the Noordermarket is based. The always busy cafe is called Winkel 43 alongside the Westerstraat. Be warned; you won’t be the only one trying to taste this amazing apple pie. Don’t worry though, there is always some pie left as they continue to bake them all day long! Besides their pie, they also serve lunch and dinner. Combine your visit with the Noordermarkt on Saturday and sit outside when the sun comes out.

Secret Recipe

Their famous Apple Pie has been voted the best of all by several magazine and online platforms. The secret? Well, it’s crunchy on the outside and soft and warm on the inside with some delicious whipped cream on top. When you take that first bite, it takes you back to your monthly visits at your granny’s house on a Sunday afternoon. 🙂

The only way to find out if it’s indeed Amsterdam’s best Apple Pie, is to try it for yourself! Be sure to visit Winkel 43 on your next visit to Amsterdam!

The Wander-Lust of..| DJ Joey Daniel

With the Amsterdam Dance Event around the corner, DJ’s from all over the world come to Amsterdam. We are proud of our Dutch talents and because of ADE we have a special interview lined up this month. This is the Wanderlust of.. Techno DJ Joey Daniel.

Joey Daniel was born in Rotterdam but currently lives in Amsterdam. When he’s not home he flies around the world playing at different gigs alongside the best DJ’s in the world. He has also become a resident of the Music On Family, run by techno legend Marco Carola. Time to find out where Joey likes to hang around when he’s home! Joey will be playing at Dockyard Festival during the Amsterdam Dance Event on the 19th of October.

Interview DJ Joey Daniel
DJ Joey Daniel (he’s not that angry in real life ;-))

Next to Amsterdam, what is your favourite destination in the world and why?

In general, my favourite place in the world has to be Asia. When i’m there, I can escape from the western culture and all the stress that comes along with it. It’s a completely different world. Not to mention the amazing food and interesting culture. I’ve been to many Asian countries but I’m currently planning a backpack trip through China with my dad! So far, I’ve only seen Beijing and can’t wait to discover more of the real China.

Nice! As you hit the road a lot, what is your favourite hotel in Amsterdam you would like to tip?

There is this really nice boutique hotel in Amsterdam called The Toren, they have in the back the garden with some really cool special rooms.

Interview | DJ Joey Daniel
Hotel The Toren

In your opinion, what are currently the best new parties during the Amsterdam Dance Event?

Too many to name, because every year there are new parties popping up. But if I have to name one; Kaluki is definitely one of those best new ones. It will take place on Thursday night at the A’dam Tower, not only the party is amazing but as well the venue as its at the 19th floor with views all over Amsterdam.

It’s not easy, but DJ’s get used to it

So how do you balance conference and parties?

You asking this to a DJ? Haha, it’s not that easy to be honest, but we are used to less sleep and living at night.

What is your favourite breakfast spot in Amsterdam?

I love Benji’s, for brunch. They serve healthy açaí bowls and really nice buns combined with fresh juices. My tip: Try the “The Jack 10”, an Indonesian style flavoured bun with jackfruit and its 100% vegan. I love it!

Beji's Toko | Asian Newcomers
Benji’s Amsterdam

And your favourite place for late night dinner?

In general, I think Izakaya is the best place for a late night dinner, because where normally the kitchen close around 10pm in Amsterdam, you can easily order food until 11:30pm at Izakaya. This Japanese fusion restaurant serve amazing cocktails as well, plus they play nice music.

Where do you go to get away from the madness?

From my place, it’s only a 15 minute drive to the Amsterdamse Bos, a beautiful forest on the edge of the city.  I go their every day for a long walk with my dog, even thought its so close to the city centre its absolutely the place to reset my mind and completely get zen. By the same token, there is also this big spa centre with sauna’s, massages a big gym and a pool where I like to go.

Spa Zuiver

Besides your own gigs, which parties do you advise us to check out during ADE this year?

Definitely check out Moog presents: Composing Live Techno Analog Synthesizers. Even if you don’t like this genre of electronic music its more then worth to check this one out.

Thanks Joey and good luck getting through the Amsterdam Dance Event this month!

A PLACE FOR EVERYONE TO UNWIND, WHERE COMFORT IS KEY, AS IS HOSPITALITY.

The Restaurant

For the purpose of all day guests, WesterVilla has build the restaurant area in the glass veranda. This results in a wonderful view and the perfect place for breakfast and lunch if we may say so. In total there will be space for about 70 guests, a large terrace, plus there will be a private area big enough for 50 people that will also be used for the cemetery. The menu will mainly consists of international dishes with Italian influences, which is good news for food and wine lovers! (who doesn’t love Italian food, right?) On the breakfast menu you’ll find avocado on toast but also vegan pancakes or granola. For lunch you can feast on burrata, antipasti, sandwiches and much more.

Lunch WesterVilla
Not the best presentation, but it was tasty!

Innofest: Seven Innovations That Will Change The Industry

When & where? 11:00 – 12:00, De La Mar Theater
If you’re after new ways to make your event, festival or business more sustainable, then be sure not to skip this part of ADE Green. More and more event organizers talk about sustainability, about “smarter” and about “cleaner”. But who are the real innovators and what are their solutions? Innofest gives green entrepreneurs and inventors the chance to test their innovation at real, working festival sites. Innofest is inviting seven of the most promising startups to present their ideas for much-needed change at ADE Green. Things like circular water solutions, mobile sun power stations and gamification to improve waste separation: ready to go innovations, now with a test record to prove it. So, walk-in, meet the startups and start making an impact at your event

ADE Green is bringing innovating heads together to create something great for our future

Plastic Promise: The Next Steps towards Responsible Plastic Use

When & where? 12:15 – 13.00, De La Mar Theater
Exactly one year ago the Plastic Promise – an initiative started by the Dutch event industry – was launched at ADE Green. Now, the promises made have been tested in the wild: on festival grounds. The Plastic Promise focus for this year focuses on points where plastic cups are unavoidable. Festivals, cup-suppliers, beer, and soda brands have collaborated across the entire supply chain to create a circular cup system at festivals.

Frequent flyers: Does DJ Culture Have To Rely On Airmiles?

When & where? 13.15 – 14:15, DeLaMar Theater
We can make responsible choices all we like: using reusable bottles, recycle our materials, becoming vegan –all good. But when it comes to dance music, there’s one thing nobody likes to mention too much: our appetite for flying around the world. OK, offsetting your carbon impact eases the pain, we all hope for future innovations in transportation –but what can we change NOW? How can you keep your environmental impact low when you pursue an international DJ career? What responsibilities do event-organizers, bookers, managers, and artists have in changing the need for flights? Might reducing traveling even be beneficial for artists and the culture? Join us to talk about an issue that has been on everyone’s minds, yet not many seem to be discussing: air travel. It’s the flying elephant in the room at ADE Green.

If You Don’t Like The System, Don’t Depend On It

When & where? 14:30 – 15:10 DeLaMar Theater
Andy Cato is a well-respected artist and part of the renowned duo Groove Armada. One day he stumbled upon an article about sustainable farming which resonated deeply. “If you don’t like the system,” it said, “don’t depend on it.” After further research, he began to envision himself having an organic farm, with healthy soil and nutritious harvests. With no experience of farming, it was a huge leap in the dark, but Andy sold his publishing rights and took out an extra mortgage to invest in a piece of land in southern France, where he started his dream farm. He achieved a nature-inclusive way of farming which balances giving and taking from the earth and will talk about this at the ADE Green Conference.

International Festivals Join Forces On Circularity

Where & When? 15:30 – 16:30, De La Mar Theater
Festivals all around the world have experimented with solutions on the ground to reduce their negative impacts on the environment. Now it’s time for the pioneers among us to collectively step up the game: to address barriers to innovation, identify solutions, and identify the potential opportunities to accelerate and clear the way for the majority to follow. The Netherlands aims to be fully circular in 2050, to spearhead a movement towards a more circular economy, and to become a “living lab” that provides the rest of the world with examples to learn from. And they are not the only one.. ADE Green opens up the conversation!

Closing Keynote: A new Narrative of Sustainability

When & Where? 15:30 – 16:30, De La Mar Theater, D7 Panel Room
It’s hard to think of a better way of closing a day at ADE Green than a keynote speech from Mac Macartney – someone whose genius is to create new narratives of sustainability. Mac is an international speaker, writer, and change-maker. Mentored by indigenous people over many years, he has acquired profound and original insights into questions preoccupying many contemporary leaders. Mac seeks to encourage the emergence of the leader in each of us: the leader who will take courageous action for a better world. We are sure Mac’s understanding and expression will make you feel that the time is right to put all of your competence and brilliance towards the pursuit of what you truly love: that better future.

Where to stay during Amsterdam Dance Event

Amsterdam is famous for a lot of things but when it comes to dance music, its ADE, the Amsterdam Dance Event. More than 300.000 people visited Amsterdam last October to dance their butts of to the biggest names in the dance and techno scene.

Needless to say, that a large amount of  people need a place to stay so the hotel and Airbnb business is booming during this time. So where are the best places to stay? Well, these are some contenders that might come in handy during the best dance nights of your life:

The Student Hotel (East & West)

Young professionals, globetrotters and students love staying at this hotel. Prices are very reasonable and they now have 2 locations in Amsterdam. Enjoy events, meet ups, and work dates. If you want to stay a bit longer, there is a community kitchen available and you can get a bicycle to explore the city. Double rooms are around €100 per night. www.thestudenthotel.com

City Hub Amsterdam (West)

This is a great self service accommodation if you’re out all night and busy exploring Amsterdam all day. Instead of dorms or hotel rooms, you sleep in a private cabin. These fit up to 2 people. Each Hub has a giant, double bed, wifi, app-controlled lighting and a personal audio streaming system. Pretty cool. There are a total of 50 cabins and you share the toilets and showers. expect to pay a little more around Amsterdam Dance Event but rooms normally go for about 60 euro per night. www.cityhub.com

Conscious Hotels (Vondelpark)

Right behind the Vondelpark and access to the lunch/dinner district of Amsterdam’s De Overtoom, you have a perfect location with trams stopping near the hotel. This hotel is extra special because they are one of the most sustainable hotels in Amsterdam. Enjoy a organic breakfast to get you back on your feet after a wild night. Rooms go for €130 per night at the moment. www.conscioushotels.com

Generator Hostel (East)

I’ve actually stayed in this brand new poshtel when it first opened. I really loved it because although it’s a hostel, you feel really at easy and it doesn’t get any cleaner and hip than at Generator. Each room features air conditioning, bed linen and a private bathroom with shower. You can share rooms or choose a premium room for 2. The hostel is situated right next to the Oosterpark and you will be in vibrant area “De Pijp” in no time. Prices do go up during Amsterdam Dance Event so get your friends together and start sharing! Gernerator/Amsterdam

Generator poshtel Amsterdam
Generator Hostel

Teleport Hotel (New West)
This hotel used to be an office and has been open since this summer. It’s used by party seekers all over the world as the Sloterdijk train Station is just around the corner and even though you’re not in the city center, it’s pretty easy to get to. They organize free tours through Amsterdam and Schiphol Airport is only 2 train stops away. They are planning an event in November where they invite several graffiti artist to pimp the rooms as they still look a bit boring due to the office look. www.teleporthotel.nl

Volkshotel (East)

Love, love, love this hotel. It’s a place where people come together and clever visual references to the building’s history as a newspaper office occur throughout (newsprint wallpaper, archive photographs of Amsterdam’s rebellious counterculture). Double rooms could go for as little at €69,- and you’re in the city center before you know it. Book it here

Hotel Not Hotel (Old West)

If you’re looking for something special, you will find it here. The name already gives a slight hint because it’s a hotel, but not really.. The concept is pretty cool. No room is the same and they are designed by different artist. Some rooms are hidden behind bookshelves, others look like a Mexican house or you can sleep in an old tram. Some rooms literally only have a bed in them but the beds and mattresses are luxurious and will have you sleep like a baby. The hotel is in west Amsterdam and parallel to the up and coming Kinkerstraat. Local Club “Het Sieraad” will host a few good parties during the Amsterdam Dance Event. There are only a few rooms so be quick if you want to be lucky. Hotel Not Hotel

The people who work behind the front desk are always locals so they know exactly where you should go. You have many options of which you can choose from and all apartments have a kitchen and private bathrooms. There are 3 locations of which one is near the Central Station. Check it out

6 x NEW AMAZING ASIAN RESTAURANTS IN AMSTERDAM

We have a weakness for Asian destinations and Asian food. It may have something to do with the fact that I have Indonesian roots and growing up with eating various spices and herbs. This always results in sheer joy when I hear about a new Asian restaurant opening in Amsterdam. These are some newcomers we want you to hear about.

Intisari Bistro Indonesia, Balboastraat 24

If you know the Dutch, you know that Indonesian food has always been important. Most people know their way around with GadoGado, Saté and Nasi Goreng. We’re happy to mention that Intisari Bistro Indonesia recently opened its doors and the reviews are praising positively. www.intisari.nl

Asian Newcomers in Amsterdam

BAOHUIS,Van Limburg stirumstraat 115

This Asian street food newcomer has opened as of early summer and is partly run by renowned chef Justin Brown. The serve no nonsense bao buns (with pulled pork or veggie), cocktails, finger licking Asian bites and Asian beers! They are close by the Westerpark, and have an outside terrace with plenty of seats. baohuis.nl

Benji’s Toko & Benji’s Bro, Baarsjesweg 188 / Maassluitstraat 243

After the success at Benji’s East, they quickly made plans to open a second café. This time, with Indonesian flavours. During breakfast and lunch you can enjoy healthy Bali style dishes such as Buddha or Acai bowls, but at dinner the real Indonesian flavours come out. You can order a mini “rijstafel” for meat, fish eaters or vegetarians. In addition to these, there are also Indonesian side orders are available. The toko is a place where you can drink Bali style cocktails at night and cool events with DJ’s will follow. The interior is amazing and the staff is friendly. Benji’s is not wasting any time and opened their 3rd location in Amsterdam New West, Benji’s Bro, which will also become a co-working space. In conclusion, you will see us here often!

Beji's Toko | Asian Newcomers

Boi Boi Southwest, Heemstedestraat 27H

Some say that Boi Boi is the best Thai restaurant in Amsterdam. They established back in 2015, but recently opened a new place near Hoofddorpplein in Amsterdam New West. To begin with, they serve the best Thai dishes we love to eat in Thailand. We can’t wait to try it! www.boiboi.com

Koma House, Krugerplein 2

This small Vietnamese restaurant has been getting amazing reviews by many customers, as well as from Asian influencers and trendsetters. The food is just as good as the ambiance, plus the staff is lovely. The owner is also Vietnamese so they know what they are doing. From rice bowls to buns, salad and catering, they do it!

Best Asian newcomers in Amsterdam

Paku Paku Amsterdam, Beukenplein 3H

Besides being the first Japanese fondue restaurant is the Netherlands, Paku paku is also a language bar where expats can meet to learn and speak Dutch to and from each other. What better way to get to know the Dutch culture then by sharing food and meeting locals! During dinner, guests drop their favourite fish, meat or veggies in the bubbling hot pot. You can compare it to a traditional fondue, but better and also a bit healthier because you are not frying your ingredients.

So which of these Asian Restaurants are you going to visit first?

Jacobsz, the restaurant in Amsterdam that sticks around

As you know, Amsterdam has countless so called “hotspots” that are poppin’ up like mushrooms. Some are trendy for a bit and disappear quite quickly. But some restaurants are here to stay. Jacobsz belongs to the ones that stick around, and we’re going to tell you why.

Jacobsz is located right on the corner of the Middenweg/Ringdijk in Amsterdam’s Eastside. The restaurant is situated inside a monumental building and thanks its name to the architect that designed the building many years ago.

Legend says that Napoleon received the key to the gates of old Amsterdam right here, 200 years ago.

Ever changing menu

There is no easy way to describe the menu at Jacobsz because they change it about every 7 weeks, but we can best describe it as good, honest seasonal food, accompanied by the best wines. Ordering is pretty simple. You can go for a 3, 4, or 5-course menu that includes carefully chosen wines from different regions. If you are up for it, you can also opt for the 6-course menu, which is only ordered per table. If you know me, you know I went for the last option. Wow. Even the amuse with mushroom and cream made me talk about Jacobsz for the next 2 weeks.

Jacobz Amsterdam
One of the current dishes at Jacobsz

I have to admit, I didn’t understand every ingredient that our waiter explained, but I didn’t care. It suited perfectly with the wines they served with each separate dish. Because I am a vegetarian I was a bit worried that I would get less better version of what my man had, but no. You couldn’t even compare the dishes he had.

Wine at restaurant Jacobz
Every bottle is suits a different dish

It might have something to do with the fact that most ingredients at Jacobsz are seasonal and local.

Menu Jacobsz

The Ambiance at Jacobsz

When I visit a restaurant, the ambience is just as important to me as the food. Needless to say that the interior at Jacobsz is simple but warm. Filled with people from all walks of life. Young professionals, couples, business partners or grandparents with their children. They all come back here to taste their ever changing menu. For those sunny days you have Bolder, their private terrace that you can book for gatherings and parties.

Jacobsz
Simple, but stylish

In conclusion, Jacobsz is here to stay and has officially been crowned one of the best restaurants by us and the people of Amsterdam.

Let us know when you are planning to go!

Love,

Elke

The Raindance Project | The concert that matters

This September you can enjoy a free concert in Amsterdam, Tanzania and Kenia that will be streamed all over the world, in order to raise awareness about climate change. It’s called the Raindance Project and includes a pretty impressive line-up artists and musicians, dancers and speakers.

Non-profit organisation JustDiggit has just announced that they will host a free concert in the Vondelpark Open air theater on the 14th of September 2019, starting at 12:00.

It will be the mini Live Aid for climate change that we’ve been waiting for

Raising Awareness

This event is now more important than ever, while the Amazon is blazing on fire at the moment. Desertification is one of the most urgent threats to mankind, causing food and water scarcity, poverty, climate change and millions of climate refugees. The Raindance Project aims to create awareness but also celebrating the re-greening successes so far. But most of all demonstrate the urgency of climate change and promote one of the major solutions, nature.

If we can warm up the earth, we can also cool it down

A continues project

The Raindance Project is a true decade plan 2020 – 2030 and an open invitation to the rest of the world to join. Together with international partners such as the UN Environment it is the time to change the course of our narrative. Dutch radio station 3FM is official partner of The Raindance Project and will livestream the entire event. The event can also be followed via the official socials of Justdiggit, The Raindance Project and 3FM.
