This super delicious Surinamese-Javanese is one of our favorite restaurants in Amsterdam! Craving some home style Surinamese or Indonesian food? Then head to Spang Makandra and order up a bowl of tasty goodness!
Come visit Spang Makandra, a super delicious Surinamese-Javanese restaurant that is one of our favorites in Amsterdam. The portions are very generous and the prices are very reasonable. What’s not to love?
We take all of our out-of-town visitors to this restaurant to try Surinamese-Javanese food for the first time. They all rave about it and then ask to return multiple times during their visit. The food is simple, tasty and just exotic enough to be exciting without being overly spicy or unusual for picky eaters. A real crowd pleaser!
Choose nasi (rice), bami (noodles) or tjauwmin (skinny noodles) and then the main dish of your choice. Favorites include the beef rendang and roast chicken, as well as the roti and special combo meals. Meat eaters and vegetarians will all find something to love. Be sure not to miss the saoto ayam, a delicious chicken soup that satisfies the soul. Some say Spang Makandra makes the best version they have ever had outside of Indonesia.
