Eat cheese like you will never find cheese againAfter spending few days in Amsterdam, I was under the impression that Dutch only eat cheese due to the wide range of options. I am not big fan of cheese but be sure you will find something you like. You can eat cheese in restaurants, cheese shops or buy them from local markets. I recommend you to try the one from Kaaskamer van Amsterdam.10. Bloemenmarkt
