If you're looking for an Amsterdam restaurant with a difference, East African restaurant Azmarino certainly fits the bill.
Located close to Sarphatipark and Albert Cuyp market, this restaurant is in the Pijp district, not far from central Amsterdam. However, once inside you're transported to the plains of Africa.
The cuisine is mainly Ethiopian and Eritrean, so there are several meat dishes to choose from. You'll get a good helping of vegetables to go with it though, as well as 'enjera' a traditional sourdough pancake. To complete the experience of East Africa, you're expected to eat with your fingers and drink beer straight from a gourd.
Offering a completely new dining experience, Azmarino restaurant is proving its place in the Amsterdam restaurant scene.
