Sometimes it happens that you find yourself lost in the hippest yet scruffiest area of Amsterdam: De Pijp. But just when you’re wondering on Albert Cuypstraat with only the trucks cleaning the road after the daily market, there’s a light on the other side of the street…and a big dead cow!
Well disguised as an authentic butcher’s shop, THE BUTCHER is your place if you like the taste of premium Aberdeen Angus from late breakfast till night, but there’s also space for that vegan friend who’s with you: The Veggie Delight is just as juicy as the other 13 meaty choices you have on the menu.
Unless you’re really really hungry, you’ll need to go several times to try all the different burgers. The Daddy, The Babaganoush, The Ugly, Silence of the Lamb, Who Let The Dogs Out and many others: each one deserves a bite and while you wait for the big guys behind the counter to cook your meal, you can study your lesson on meat cuts designed on the dineresque white tiles on the wall.
Or maybe you can snoop around and try to pass the secret door on the back? Yes, because like all the cool places, THE BUTCHER has a secret cocktail bar for trendy people, but you’ll never get in without a reservation, so forget it!
And if you get addicted, now you won’t have to go all the way to De Pijp, since THE BUTCHER also opened in Amsterdam West at De FoodHallen, whit a bigger spot for juicy hamburger. And if you get sick or lazy, they’ll just ring your bell with a delivery.
You’ve no excuse!
