I Want To Make Love To This Club. Sandwich.

Another hot item from Amsterdam was this Club Sandwich. It hit me right in the aioli.  Garlic aioli in fact. Unfortunately I cannot confirm exact coordinates of where  to obtain this glorious snack. It appears the aggressive amount of brew-ski's consumed that very day has jogged the memory. What I can recollect was this particular restaurant had a red Heineken sign. The problem is every street in Amsterdam has hundreds of Heineken signs, many of them red. Ballsnekia to ever finding that place again.

(Ballsnekia -balls-neck-e-ah - a Dutch word, meaning "balls". )

One spot you will have no problem finding is the Grolsch Bar. Actually, it will find you. No matter how far you walk, and how lost you get, you will most definitely end up back at this bar every time. Its like magic, or a fantasy.  I can imagine Narnia would be very similar to Amsterdam in that regard.

Although the beer at Grolsch is  very cold, regrettably the food is nothing like the club above. In fact, its terrible. Don't eat there, and you will have a splendid time. I repeat, the beer is ice cold.

Grolsch Bar. Amsterdam, Netherlands.

You Can Eat Whatever You Like.

There is no shortage of things to see in Amsterdam.  In particular the surprising amount of fast food establishments. It appears North American staples such as Burger King are held in high regard in this city. There are also French fry spots everywhere.  One would assume the Dutch are on the brink of obesity. This is clearly not the case. There are Viking-like girls on bikes everywhere. Babes on Bikes. I have a sneaking suspicion Bob and Julian from Biggest Loser were right. As long as you exercise, you can swing away on the snacks Brosef.

What was most impressive: FEBO - the vending machine restaurant chain. This place is truly from the future.  No more humans. Your only interaction is with a machine. Just like Terminator Salvation.  Obviously this concept has been thought of countless times (whilst on the electric lettuce), but here in Amsterdam they actually followed through with it. FEBO was full of customers each night despite the fact that there is a McDonalds right across the street.

Note - There was actually no midnight toking that induced this particular visit. Foreign substances would have only compromised the taste. Well, I guess we were on "the beer". The beer, and the vodka drink. You mix a vodka drink, you mix a whiskey drink. Right. Drunk eating. That explains why we tried one of everything.  Gluttony in its purest form.

FEBO. Amsterdam, Nederlands.
