I was really excited to check out this street market, because I had read good things about it on the internet. Supposedly the biggest one in Amsterdam or something?
But when we visited on a Tuesday afternoon, I was a bit disappointed because it looked kind of dead. There wasn't that much going on, and I didn't see any stroopwaffels. :(
My boyfriend wanted to try some fried chicken from a vendor that drew a small crowd, so we got some drumsticks and a chicken sandwich. But I don't know if it was due to the Indonesian influence or what, but I found it too be way too oily, salty, sweet and spicy for my taste. There were even additional sauces on the side if you wanted to slather even more sweet chili sauce on.
Across from the popular chicken stand was a stand giving out free samples of olives, which were pretty good. We decided to take some green and black olives with feta cheese, hummus, and a ginormous loaf of bread with us for a picnic later at Het Vondelpark.
Unfortunately, we didn't have a picnic blanket with us, and my bf had the brilliant idea of buying some old clothes from another vendor to sit on in lieu. I spied a giant mumu, and we thought it would have been perfect to rip apart and sit on... but then I found a felt IKEA blanket for only 2 euros that was probably more suitable for our needs. Darn, so close! This would have been the trip to remember... with the mumu impromptu picnic blanket. Haha...
