Jaymies loves Amsterdam

1 comment
It's been over two years now that Matt and I took our very first trip away together and that place was Amsterdam. That city will always have a very special place in both our hearts. Spending almost three days exploring (over 70,000 steps y'all!!) sitting on the banks of the canal, sipping coffees, eating an obscene amount of potato based products, hitting up any photo-booths we saw, all with my best friend and love of my life will always be a favourite way to spend my time.

Firstly we totally lucked out once again with out hotel, all thanks to Matt finding this little bohemian and seriously cool gem and only a short metro journey away from central station. Breakfast was included (Al a carte) and they were very accomidating to us tricky vegans and served us up delicous fresh produce such as asparagus, spinach, beans, fresh bread and fruit.

Meatless District
I found this restaurant on one of my browsing research sessions before going and saw such great reviews. My tip here is make sure you book before heading there for dinner, we ventured there on Sunday and it was fully booked and busy! We sobbed inside as we saw delicious burgers and handmade sushi being placed in front of customers... we knew we had to come back. Unfortunately they're not open Mondays so we couldn't go for dinner but we did enjoy a hearty lunch on Tuesday.
One of the best (if not best) burgers., free-from homemade mayonaise, ketchup. Even though we were stuffed we couldn't help but share the chocolate, pecan pie we had been eyeing up with a cup of coffee.
All vegan, all delicous.

Coffee and Coconuts
An old cinema re-designed into one of the biggest and swanky coffee shops, composed of three floors of delicious drinks and lunch fun, did someone say bean bag seating? We had a couple of hours to kill before lunch on our last day and I had heard great things about C&C so with google maps in hand we decided to track it down and sip on coconut mylk shakes and flat whites and we were not disappointed.

V Hotel Bar
The restaurant and bar at our hotel seemed to be quite a popular hang-out for locals and an after work drink venue and I can see why, beautifully stylish yet also very cosy. Very reasonable prices as well (about 6 euros for a glass of champagne) we spent each night before heading central in here, enjoying all the little knick knacks and home goal situations you can imagine.

Kitsch Kitchen
A stones throw away from the Anne Frank house (which is a must do, we went on our first visit) is this rather fun and colourful home accessories store, filled with an eclectic mix of furniture, cushions and rugs, a feast for the eyes even if you don't leave with any purchases.

Hoxton Hotel
Not going to lie, the main reason I wanted to go here was for the old photo automat machine because I luuuuurve them but I'm so glad we did because a. the hoxton hotel is cool af (just like its London counterpart) and b. delicous cocktails! It's in a really cute, slightly quieter part of Amsterdam as well - Ideal for evening strolls being a soppy mare with your main squeeze. The only pictures that I managed to take here was some grainy shots of my drink and this handsome chap doing an 'Amsterdam street style' snap tehehe.
