Vicky Hampton of Amsterdam Foodie picks the city’s best budget restaurants, for whether you’re after a quick sandwich while sightseeing, an afternoon pancake or a full steak dinner
Getto is a burger bar with a difference: each burger is named after a drag queen who performs there – keep an eye on the website if you’re keen to catch an act. It describes itself as “an attitude-free zone, for gays, lesbians, bi, queers and straights”. Relaxed and friendly, the bar staff mix great cocktails, and the interior has a chilled vibe. The burgers don’t disappoint: try the Jennifer Hopelezz beef burger with guacamole and bacon, or the Dolly Bellefleur lamb burger with tzatziki and grilled courgette. They’re served with chunky seasoned wedges and a mayo-heavy salad. And try the Gettopolitan – a cosmo made with Dutch Jenever liqueur.
