I don't know when this was last updated. some restaurants closed down. scroll down the page for the kosher groceries stores. they are mostly located in the 'buitenveldert' neighborhood. an easy tram ride from from the city center. (tram #5) takes about twenty min.

Note: this is a list for locations in the whole of the netherlands. not all are in Amsterdam.

You can go see the old Spanish portugese shul, anne frank house, the flower market and there is a great sandwich shop too.

I'm from Amsterdam originally. If you tell me around what time of the day you will be there i can create a nice itinerary for you. there's a lot to do in and around amsterdam.
