Last week Trev sent me a link to a website called: Spotted by Locals. It's separated by cities and has reviews of things to see, do and eat (reported by locals) so I browsed the Amsterdam section and looked for things I might be interested in. There were lots of places that sounded good but a post about Broodje Bert caught my attention because I knew I had seen it earlier in the week when I was wandering around the Jordaan neighbourhood.

I told Trevor all about it when I got home that day - you know that little feeling of victory you get when you've discovered a great little place that isn't overrun with the tourist scene? So on Sunday afternoon when we were wandering around looking for a place to eat, we were pleasantly surprised to see that Broodje Bert was open (a lot of places are closed here on Sunday). This time I ordered the 'Broodje Bert' a sandwich topped with grilled lamb meatballs and a garlic sauce. It was soooo good. The lamb meatballs were tasty and so filling and went so well with the baguette and all the greens. I shared my sandwich with Trev, and I still, just barely, could finish it. I'm already looking forward to my next visit to Broodje Bert.
