Best speciality delicatessens in Amsterdam

Tired of boring old sandwiches and supermarkets? Get creative with Amsterdam's superb variety of speciality food shops and delis. This list includes the city’s go-to spots for charcuterie, cheese, dips, bread, olives and other delicious morsels to amp up your picnic game.

Thull’s Deli

Jars with pickles, homemade sauerkraut, mustard and chilli jam are some of the preserved goodies made and sold by owner Simone van Thull, the queen of canning and fermentation. Visit Thull’s to grab a yummy lunch on-site or to go - think sandwiches, sourdough toasties, salads and more. Alternatively, browse the shelves for kefir, kombucha, kimchi or that perfect tin of sardines. 

Thull's Deli | C. van Eesterenlaan 21-23, Oostelijke Eilanden / Zeedijk 71, Centrum

Amsterdam has its fair share of first-class Italian delis, and Renzo’s Delicatessen, going for nearly 40 years, is one of the most long-standing. On the take-out menu, you’ll find a dangerously mouth-watering selection of filled sandwiches – all packed full of Italian salamis, hams, cheeses or roasted vegetables. They also stock a colourful range of pesto, oil, vinegar, meats and cheeses.

Borrl offers an assortment of snack boxes that would add flare to any outdoor picnic. The display cases dazzle with freshly baked bread and pastries to pair perfectly with a takeaway soup or a selection of homemade dips, cheeses and charcuterie. If that doesn’t take your fancy, how about a pulled-pork sandwich, truffle fries or a slice of cheesy flammkuchen?

For Mediterranean goodies like olives, mortadella ham, artichokes and anchovies, stop by this charmingly typical Italian delicatessen on Javastraat. The shop is stocked with wine, gourmet pasta, sauces and other Italian fare. Behind the counter, you’ll find a colourful array of antipasti, meats and delicious bakery items perfect for creating a feast at home.

Chamuyero Carnicería & Deli

This Argentinian deli honours the flavours of Buenos Aires, with its shelves filled with fresh medialunas (sweet pastries) and empanadas alongside a wide selection of natural and classic Argentinian wines. You can also pick up prime cuts of meat in the butcher's shop to have your own asado or barbeque at home. If you need inspiration for a meat feast, book yourself a table at Salmuera, the sister restaurant located next door.

Feduzzi Mercato Italiano

This retro food store was founded in 1981 by the Feduzzi family, making it the first Italian delicatessen in the Netherlands. Discover their tantalising range of speciality olive oil, balsamic vinegar, artisanal pasta (including fresh ravioli with different shapes and fillings) and wine from small Italian producers. Or, simply pick yourself up a parma ham panino to go.

And if you don’t fancy cooking tonight, why not pick up a moussaka to heat at home?
