Foodies love new restaurants. We like trying out new food and we can talk for hours about new restaurants we have discovered or would like to try out.
According to the list, 16 new restaurants opened in Amsterdam during the first five months of 2009. Of the newcomers, food salon Razmataz on Hugo de Grootplein has gotten most attention.
There are also a number of new restaurants on Amstelveenseweg, the up and coming food boulevard just off the western exit of Vondelpark. Amstelveenseweg used to be dominated by greasy snackbars and shady pizza joints. Not anymore! Fair trade restaurant Umoja pioneered this new food location. Then Ron Blauuw established the area with Sophia and Blauw. Fish restaurant Urban Ocean and Chinese Oriental 128 are the latest additions, having opened in February and March 2009 respectively.
