Because of the centuries-long Dutch occupation of the islands, it’s pretty easy to find Indonesian food in the Netherlands. Popular dishes include nasi rames, loempia, and spekkoek, but to get an expansive intro to the Dutch-Indonesian table, order a rijstafel at Restaurant Blauw. Originally a Sumatran meal, rijstafels can only really be found in the Netherlands and the one at Blauw comes with the requisite rice and multiple shareable dishes. Bring at least one friend, order the meat and fish version, and you’ll get 14 dishes that come out all at once, from beef rendang and spicy shrimp belado to refreshing acar and their signature tahu peteh. Head here if you’re bringing a crowd hungry from biking around nearby Vondelpark or just want the variety of a tasting menu except all at once.
