Is an ongoing thing in Amsterdam, new hotspots. They are like freakin’ mushrooms popping up as they do, but you don’t hear us complaining! We’ve selected 7 new hotspots that have just opened or will open soon so you have plenty of new things to try this month!
Vegan Junkfood Bar, Marie Heinekenplein 9 – 10
This is the second location for the Vegan Junkfood Bar and this one they are situated in De Pijp area. It’s also a lot bigger than the location on the Overtoom and the interior is pretty funky too! What to expect? Lot’s of junk food (don’t we love it) but no animals were harmed. Win Win situation right? Plant based burgers, Pizza, Nuggets, Bitterballen and coconut-milk ice-cream is all included on the menu! www.veganjunkfoodbar.com

Dr. Pieper, Kinkerstraat 142H
Let’s stay with comfort food shall we? Because there is a seriously tasty fries shop opening October 14th. We walked by and noticed the rather special interior. It’s like walking into a Frankenstein lab.. for potatoes! You will be greeted by men in long white coats that will take your order. The menu is displayed on a TV screen and potatoes are floating around in watertanks as well as the jellyfish in the wall. You can order your fries that are in coconut oil with different dips like truffel or vegan mayonaise. The traditional Dutch croquette is also available with vegetarian or vegan options. Stay tuned! www.drpieper.nl
Chin Chin Club, Rozengracht 133
Dimsum and karaoke is always a great combination and the owners of the ChinChin Club must have noticed because the Asian trend is growing in Europe. Expect confusion Chinese food, quirky cocktails, nostalgic games and late-night dancing. Chin Chin Club is the place where that one last drink turned into one too many. Go here with friends and sing while you eat! www.chinchinclub.nl
Mr. Haz Tacobar, Egelantiersstraat 24
From Asian food to Mexican. For all day taco’s and cocktails, you need to visit Mr. Haz. On weekends they stay open as late as 3am so it’s the perfect place to hang around. You can also come in for a freshly brewed coffee and specialty beers. Oh, and they serve mescal! What’s not to like?! Facebook Page

Mook Pancakes, Jodenbreestraat 144
They have opened a second location! At Mook you can get some of the best breakfast and lunch pancakes and this one located is right in the city center so that’s good for everyone! Hopefully this will also shorten the que at De Clerqstraat. They are open from 9am to 9pm. Facebook Page
Nacarat, Rokin 49
Renowned restaurant owner and chef Ron Blauw has opened Nacarat back in May but with just opened department store Hudson Bay, it’s really the time to go now. A restaurant with Middle Eastern influences where you can indulge your taste buds. It’s located on the top floor where you can go for lunch and dinner while enjoying the view of Amsterdam. At night, when Hudson’s Bay closes, make sure you walk into the small alley to find the entrance. www.nacarat.nl
Corner Bakery in Amsterdam West, Koningin Wilhelminaplein 60
Damn, I used to live right at this new location. But no worries, I will be back for the famous freaky shakes, amazing bread rolls and colorful brunch dishes. The corner Bakery is an insta famous brunch spot in Amsterdam South next to the Museum Square. They became so popular that it could be difficult to get a table around lunchtime or during the weekend. They have said to open in October so we can’t wait! Facebook page
Have fun discovering these new places!
