When Anthony Bourdain visited Amsterdam on his show The Layover Season 1 Episode 7, he and his crew picked many restaurants. Here are all the addresses and the dishes showcased on The Layover – Anthony Bourdain Amsterdam, all in a convenient list:
Anthony Bourdain described Café Int Aepjen (‘t Aepjen) as “”possibly
the oldest bar in the city, famously a watering hole and inn for sailors in the
1500s. They called it ‘The Ape” because the owner would often accept
monkeys, apes or other exotic animals as payment.” Bourdain also suggested De Dampkring and Paradox Cafe, two of the many
cafes in Amsterdam where you can buy and smoke weed. Bourdain likewise
mentioned The Prince Cafe (Café De Prins) as
a more traditional coffee shop.
Anthony Bourdain on Three Little Bottles (De Drie Fleschjes):
“A perfectly fine venue” for jenever. He also suggested The Pilsner Club (De Pilsener
Club – Engelse Reet) as a place for getting “swacked”, The Two Swans if you are
looking for a brown café (traditional Amsterdam bar or pub), and Maloe Melo if you prefer a late-night
dive bar with blues, punk and jazz.
Anthony Bourdain on Café Soundgarden: “People come
here, park their boats and grab a drink”. He also stopped by Wildeman Cafe – a bar in a former
distillery – and had more beer with a platter of liverwurst and cheese.
