Amsterdam--Best, Most Recent Recommendations for Indonesian, Middle Eastern Needed

mmichaels | Apr 21, 2009 03:09 PM


My husband and I will be living in an apartment in de Pijp for a month again in May. I've perused all the Chowhound posts on Amsterdam going back 1 year---but don't want to go further back---we all know things DO change!

We cook a lot via Albert Heijn and the Cuypstraat market, but like to get some good Indonesian, Thai, etc. Any recent recommendations? For Indo, we tried one place in de Jordaan, and it was awful--and expensive, to boot! I'll be sure to post here when we go back and I spot the restaurant again, as it's a place to avoid!

What is the latest on a great Indonesian place that won't cost us a fortune? We like spicy, we like "not dumbed down." I've seen varying reports on Sama Sebo, Tempo Doeloe, Kantjil en de Tijger (is their takeout OK???)----so please advise. Not necessarily going for the rijsttafel, but that's all good too.

Also, would love to find a good Indian place, but that may be even harder. Do let me know if anyone has a recommendation!

From last summer, we have one fave Ethiopian restaurant right near our beloved Sarphati Park, and a good Thai place in the Jordaan. (Will post their names while we're there).

Cheers, and thank you in advance!
