By area: Jordaan

Historically a cramped, poor and overcrowded suburb housing the carpenters, potters and labourers who built the canals for the rich, since the 1980s the labyrnthic Jordaan has been aggressively gentrified. Whilst art galleries and specialist boutiques abound, the area retains a working class peppering.

Some highlights include the best pizzeria in the world. Official*.

Equally impressive is the Spanish restaurant and tapas bar ‘La Oliva’. Click the link for more.


You’ll also find a lovely chocolate-filled heaven: Chocolatl. You have to go for the cupcakes.
