Amsterdam info

Hello! I'm a chowhounder from Boston on my honeymoon and we have made our way to Amsterdam. I am hoping that people could give us some helpful basic food info. For example, when do people usually eat lunch and dinner here? are there any food traditions here? (ie- afternoon tea, afternoon beer, etc). I know that it is basic, but it will be really helpful for our short stay!

Also, we are staying in a flat right by the weesperplein metro station. I haven't found many food recs for this area. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Lastly, my husband and I have two loves. First, cheese! I am a cheesemonger and id love to sample some good borenkaas Gouda. Any cheese shop recommendations? Second, fish. Pickled, cured, salted... Doesn't matter. We'd love to sample some local staples as well as bring home some canned goods.

This post turned out longer than expected! Any info will be much appreciated. Thank you!!
