Boca’s Bar

bocas_test

If you happen to be in De Pijp area of Amsterdam’s South, a great place to stop for drinks and a meal with the family is Boca’s Bar.  The specialty here is ‘broodjes’ (little bread roll sandwiches) which are made and presented like a sort of tapas with many different and interesting flavour combinations. You can sample a couple of little broodjes or order a larger selection and make a full meal of it. Ordering is simple, you just tick the boxes of your choice on the checklist-style menu, and voila – your broodjes are ordered!

The food is served on large wooden boards great for sharing together, and there’s enough variety (savoury and sweet) to really cater for most tastes, young and old. There are even some very classic Dutch flavours on offer, providing the perfect opportunity to sample local foods such as bitterballen (small croquettes), old Dutch cheese with mustard, and hagelslag (chocolate sprinkles).  The bar itself is very spacious with a nice selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks to accompany your food. (They even provide colouring in for the kids, which – as a parent – is always a nice and welcoming comfort to see!)

The location is also opposite the street from Sarphatipark, a great spot to bring the kids for a play and some fresh air (if the weather permits!).
