It’s not easy to find many taco spots, let alone good ones, in Amsterdam. Case in point: Coba. You will have to venture out a bit further and cross the river Ij, but the oyster tostada and soft shell crab taco alone are worth the 10-minute subway ride from Station Centraal. The menu goes far beyond tinga de pollo and tacos al pastor, so you should come here with three to four other friends and order everything. Then, settle into the low stools and soak in the abundance of agave plants and groups sipping on small glasses of mezcal and beer. Follow suit and sample something from the extensive list of agave spirits that also includes things like sotol, bacanora, and raicillas before taking a short walk and hopping on the free ferry back instead of the train.
