A great spot for me to meet friends or just to chill and watch people after a long day work. For me, as an ex chef, food is important and must be basic and good. Here they never disappointed me.

For a historic lunch or diner with the influence of the old Dutch East Indies. I lived for 6 years in Jogjarka, Indonesia and to find the best tastes of town, I bring my friends to this restaurant to get Mama's Favourite Rijsttafel. It contains some of Chef Rosmina Napitupulu's favourite dishes and cost around forty euro for 2 persons.

It’s my favourite spot to catch the sun and have a coffee with apple pie. But they also have great food and you can watch a movie. The funny side of this place, all workers earn the same from managers to waiters. For me it’s heaven to grab a coffee in the morning sun and watch people and daily life.

For a classic beer or a seasonal I visit brewery ‘t IJ. Years ago I worked in Brewery the Prael and often visited them, how we could learn from them as we were still pioneering. They also have the one-off specials. Great selection of characteristic Amsterdam craft beer. Brouwerij ‘t IJ has been brewing quality beers since 1985. It all started when musician Kasper Peterson looked for an official outlet for his experimental home brewing. As a member and composer of the band Door Mekaar, he fell in love with the Belgian style beers while touring south of the Dutch border. Since similar beers were not yet brewed in Amsterdam, Kasper decided to produce them himself. Searching for a suitable building to start an official brewery, he stumbled upon an old municipal bath house in disuse. It still had its water supply and drainage system, easy-to-keep-clean tiles and steam generator. It was, in short, the perfect building for a brewer. As a bonus, it had the biggest wooden windmill of the Netherlands right next door as the ultimate landmark. The pioneering paid off and ‘t IJ gradually grew into the biggest and best known brewery of Amsterdam. After more than twenty years, Kasper decided his work was done. Bart Obertop and Patrick Hendrikse took over and continue brewing the distinctive kind of quality beers ‘t IJ has become known for. Since demand was so much higher than supply, a new brewery was opened at a mere 700 meters from the original location in 2013. The original brewery at the Funenkade now produces all the beers for consumption in the bar in the same building. The new facilities at the Zeeburgerpad enable us to fill a significantly increased number of bottles and kegs. We manage to keep up with demand a little better and are still able to offer you an exciting experimental brew occasionally.

My favourite spot to have a fast ice-cream of our favourite broodje hemaworst (smoked sausage roll). This famous Dutch warehouse has affordable but great Dutch quality. Towels for example last for years and keep their colours and softness! An other great souvenir if you have a bike at home, buy a Dutch bike tire repair-tools set. Also famous are the ‘Tompoezen’ a Dutch pie for a special treatment or just when a neighbour visit you for a coffee.

For a raw salted herring with raw onions or fried fish, I often buy from the fishers family. The market has also a great potato man, selling the best of the nest potatoes and a bit further the market you find my cheese seller. Dutch people often buy all kind of local cheeses and put them on a wooden planche ones friends arrive. Great for nice summer evenings with a glass of red wine or port. My favourite is Kernhem, a creamy red soft cheese with a great texture. But old Amsterdam (Gouda style) is also nice and a strong flavour and a bit salty taste. Also nice for pastas and bread rolls with real butter.

Beside Vondelpark, Gaasperplaspark, Bestrixpark and Amstelpark, is Flevopark a paradise for the East. I often go for a picknick with friends or just walk or bike to have some sport. I found some interesting history online: The History of the Flevopark Already in the second half of the 19th century there were proposals to build a park in Amsterdam East, together with the construction of a Java neighborhood. Residents of city districts had to be able to visit a park within a reasonable distance of their home. In addition, other European cities were used as an example, such as Paris, where large 'artificial' nature areas were created near the city. Moreover, Amsterdam could not be left behind. The plans then disappeared in the bottom drawer, as priority was given to the construction of the Oosterparkbuurt and Oosterpark. The first concrete plans to construct a park on the edge of the Indische Buurt date from 1908. The great nature connoisseur (and founder of Dutch nature conservation) Jac.P.Thijsse committed himself to a recreational resort between the Jewish Cemetery and the New Deep. Around 1930 around 50,000 people would have to live in the Indische Buurt and they should have a chance to enjoy nature close to home. Perhaps Thijsse tried something back from his own memory of this area. One of those students, well and well-educated and a teacher at the Amsterdam School for Teachers, Dr. C. Kerbert (later director of Artis), also brought some of his students to the Zuiderzee and that Nieuwe Diep, and so it happened that in 1880 I also moved into a plot at the Diep, just opposite the "island" , a birch grove and a peat moss swamp with orchids and snakes, a peat bog at its best: marsh fern, comb fern, spine, royal fern, viper tongue, sundew, etc. In 1883 this paradise disappeared at the same time as "the Island" from the Rhine canal. Fortunately, even now and then, such places can still be found, but we must hurry to keep them. In 1931 Jac.P. Thijsse opened officially the Zuiderzeepark. Later the park was named Flevopark. The design for the park was made by architect E.M. Mandersloot and further elaborated by head of Public Works Ir.J.R.Koning. Large playing fields and the construction of a harbor for rowing boats had to meet the needs of the growing up youth of the Indische Buurt. Not everyone was happy with this principle of active recreation. Many people thought that a park should be a quiet walking area. Not all plans were therefore realized. The Maalkom - in the pumping station tasting room is now deep. For example, the plan was to demolish the polder pumping station of the Overamstelsche Polder and replace it with a tea house, but this encountered so much resistance that it was finally decided to hide it from view through as many plants as possible. Together with the three 'Vissershuisjes' it now forms a unique corner in the park. The three wooden houses originally belonged to the Papen horticulture. The actual construction of the park began in 1928. A total of 60,840 m2 of planting, 145,240 m2 of lawns and 25,500 m2 of paved roads were installed. On September 20, 1931, the first part of the Zuiderzeepark, the name was later changed to Flevopark, was officially opened by Alderman Public Works De Miranda and in the presence of Jac.P.Thijsse. In those years with its high unemployment, the construction of this park was considered an unemployment project. The park was completed in the late 1930s. The most important entrance to the park, from the Java Plantsoen, was provided with a beautiful gate. This gate initially stood in front of the Muiderpoort at Artis, but was once removed because the increase in traffic meant that the Muiderpoort and the gate were found to be too narrow: a road was simply constructed around the Muiderpoort. In 1938 Jan Trouw, chief drawing room for urban development, remembered where the remains of this gate were, namely in the back garden of the Tropical Institute. With the help of a stonemason, two complete columns were made of the debris, which still mark the main entrance to Flevopark. It is nice to know that along the same gate, where the many hikers now pass, the Cossacks once marched into the city after the French occupation. During the Second World War a lot of wood was felled in the park to serve as fuel. That damage was provisionally repaired after the war, but the consequence of that felling is that there are not many really old trees. There have been more attacks over the years. For example, with the construction of the Schellingwouder Bridge, the Flevoweg was constructed, with the result that a barrier was added; to reach the park through the main entrance, you must first pass under a dark viaduct. The Zuiderzee nature swimming pool (the 'centenbadje'; entrance 2 cents) on the Nieuwe Diep was open from 1906, but was closed in 1953 due to water pollution. As a replacement, a portion of the northeast corner of the park was sacrificed to construct the Flevoparkbad. The size of the original 23 ha was thereby reduced to around 15.5 ha.
