Boat Trip in Amsterdam

Another one about "what to do in Amsterdam". I ve been in this city for 9 months now, but have seen not enough. Work has been a lot, but great... but it keeps you from going out at night. Besides the infamous Leidseplein - where you can have a good steak, the best ice cream in the world or watch kids doing strange things - I have not seen too much of Amsterdam downtown. Fortunately one of our colleagues decided to change this and took us on a boat trip in a small float. Equipped with Beer, Pizza and good music, we toured the canals of the inner city. One highlight of course being the redlight district. It's cozy to stop under a bridge when it starts raining and great to see the lovely homes that have taken hold of some older industrial areas.

Amsterdam is a cool place to be and the atmosphere is amazing. If you haven't been, you should change this asap.

BTW: I just mentioned the word "Steak" - which brings me to my favourite food. Even though I eat a lot of Steak, I am always tracking quality.

10 out of 10:

  • Saltlik, Banff, Alberta, Canada - The New York Peppercorn is the best steak in the world.
  • Karstadt, Muenster, NRW, Germany - Actually a shopping mall, you can have steak inside the supermarket area. Serves the best steak in Germany. Decent price, cooked to your liking.

9 out of 10:

  • Wolfgangs Steakhouse, New York, NY, USA - Great steak, good service. Ex-Peter Luger Personell.
  • Al Capone's Hideaway & Steakhouse, St.Charles, IL, USA - Authentic Atmosphere, good for groups, amazing T-Bone.
  • Bella Napoli, Stuttgart, Germany - Nice italian restaurant. The barolo sauce on the filet of beef is unbeatable.

There is plenty on 8 out of 10 with the Gauchos Leidseplein, Amsterdam being very close to 9 out of 10. Yummie. Now off to a prime rib at the QCenter :-)
