Misschien is dit wel het beste Javaans-Surinaamse eethuis in Amsterdam. Voor een zacht prijsje krijg je een flink bord voorgeschoteld en de gerechten smaken geweldig lekker. Probeer zeker eens de roti met lamsvlees en teloh met bakkeljauw. Het is wel verstandig er rekening mee te houden dat de gunstige prijs-kwaliteitverhouding dit kleine zaakje ongekend veel klandizie oplevert. Soms lijken er meer mensen buiten in de rij te staan dan er binnen zitten. Trotseer de drukte, want dat is het zeker waard!

After spending a few weeks traveling in Europe with my parents, we decided I needed some exotic food in our bodies. I discovered this place by chance while googling different alternatives to typical sit-down restaurants in Amsterdam. So I wrote down directions and took the tram over. It was pretty simple to find.
Walking in, I thought the place was a little small, the room was quite crowded and the level of noise was a little high. There was also a periodic loud vibrating noise. Once you get passed that, you'll be able to enjoy your food.
As I walked in, I thought the restaurant was full. Fortunately, the gentleman reassured me and told me there was space available and that I'd be sharing the table with other diners. Some could see this as being awkward, but it wasn't a problem for us.
I chose a Spang Makandra special (10 euros) which seems to include many small portions of different dishes: grilled chicken, sateh chicken skewers, fried rice, fish balls and noodles. My dad chose the same thing whereas my mom chose the rice with sateh chicken (8 euros). The portions were generous and I was barely able to finish my plate. The dish was full of flavour, the service was quick and friendly.
If I were local, I would definitely eat here regularly.
In case it could be helpful, you can get to this restaurant by taking the 24 or the 16 tram (AWAY from Centraal) and getting off at Albert Cuypstraat. Walk for about 2 minutes and you're there.

A friend and I stopped in on this place while wandering around De Pijp, as trying authentic Indonesian food had been suggested as something to do while in Amsterdam.
It was quite busy (perhaps a good sign), but we luckily managed to get a table and settle down to some typical Indonesion fare.
I chose a house special, Rijst Gudangan, and was not dissapointed, large portions of quite affordable, great tasting, slightly spicy, fresh food, plus I’m a sucker for anything with coconut. My friend had a another dish which came with a spicy peanut sauce, it looked quite delicious too.
The restaurant is vegetarian friendly (but not vegan) and is quite nicely laid out. As I said above though, it is quite popular and it may be difficult getting a seat at peak lunch/dinner hours. It’s also not licensed so be prepared to drink soft drinks.
- good fresh food
- nice decor
- good location for De Pijp
- seems very popular so will be difficult getting a seat

BEST ROTI IN AMSTERDAM! if you like indonesian food, surinamese food is more or less the same but less fine dining and half the price. This place is really small so you might have to share a table with strangers and the decoration is not the nicest. But they do the best roti dishes. they also do fried rice dishes, soups etc but I do recommend the roti dishes. Roti special is the vegetarian option, you can also get the meat versions. I would eat here every week if I could. I would give it 10 stars if I could.

A fantastic experience re: authentic suurinamese - jaavanese food. It is a small restaurant that does not take reservations and is very popular. Usually all seats are taken and people cue for their take-away orders - this should not put you off: the owner is helpful and experienced; he can tell you how long you might have to wait till a seat becomes available. But of course, it doesn't guarantee you a seat. The menue is in dutch, but again the owner speaks excellent English and will help you to find the perfect dish for you. We went for the starters and mains he recommended and were not disappointed. They serve a great variety in vegetarian, seafood and meat dishes. The food was very tasty, perfectly seasoned and cooked, which we found remarkable as the kitchen was obviously working at full capacity to satisfy the numerous customers.
Great food, price and service - just be aware of their non-reservation policy and don't be disappointed. Only soft drinks.

Had a nice stroll with Darcey along the Albert Cuyp today, bought some fabrics for school, shoes and topped it off with lunch at Spang Makandra, before going back to school.

Great little few-frills Javanese/Surinamese eatery, in the Pijp.
The multi-cultural Pijp district is packed with authentic, ethnic places to eat. Like most, Spang Makandra doesn't look much from the outside (or inside for that matter). But, based on a meal I had there recently, I can assure you that the food is delicious (and cheap). Be prepared for a bit of a wait for a table at peak times.
Food and drink:
I tucked into a satisfying bowl of pork and chicken nasi goreng, served with steamed greens. Portions are big, so I'm afraid I was too stuffed to try anything else, such as the roti or tjauwmin (thin noodles). No alcohol is served - ask for a coke and it comes in its can.
It's very much a locals' haunt. I'm sure I was the only tourist, and most other guests looked Asian. The place was packed and a bit cramped, with people coming in and out for takeaways. A pity about the large TV screen on one wall - at least the sound is turned off.
The owner, Glenn, is very friendly, and though the menu is in Dutch only, staff do their best to translate everything into English for you.
Just up from the Pijp's famous Albert Cuypmarkt.
You'll be hard pushed to spend much more than 10 euros a head.[B]null[/B][B]Great little few-frills Javanese/Surinamese eatery, in the Pijp.

Unieke kwaliteit! Dit restaurant doet zorgvuldig inkopen, er worden hoogwaardige ingredienten gebruikt. Alle kruiden en smaken zijn perfect in balans. De opties voor vegetariers en veganisten zijn erg goed, met veel groente die perfect gegaard is.
Ik ben zeer benieuwd of Spang Makandra gebruik maakt van kruidenmixen, of andere zakjes e.d., of dat ze alles from scratch zelf maken met losse plantaardige ingredienten.
Ik hoop dat Spang Makandra ook in de toekomst opties voor 100% biologische maaltijden gaat invoeren. Ik weet dat het een hoop gedoe is, maar uiteindelijk kom je er niet onderuit: hetzelfde gerecht maar dan volledig biologisch of met wilde ingredienten, oftewel zoals we tot zo'n 100 jaar geleden altijd hebben gegeten, smaakt beter en is gezonder dan de niet-bio/wild versie. Ook is de voedzaamheid beter, en van veel gewassen is de textuur ook beter.
Heb er geen problemen mee 1.7x zoveel te betalen voor dezelfde vegetarische roti, maar dan biologisch :)
In ieder geval is dit restaurant een 100% aanrader. Ik zou n.a.v. de prijzen niet snel verwachten dat ze daar iets lekkers voor kunnen maken, maar op de 1 of andere manier krijg je bij Spang Makandra voor een klein bedrag 1 van de meest hoogwaardige maaltijden van Amsterdam no doubt :) Mocht je twijfelen waar je je roti gaat scoren in de buurt van de Albert Cuyp, twijfel niet meer :)

Ik hoor goeie dingen over Spang Makandra en wil graag eens komen eten, maar ik zie nergens een adres.. Misschien handig om dat op jullie site te vermelden ;)
