The Jordaan is also the culinary hotspot ( in Amsterdam with authentic international restaurants and even the odd food tour. From the Jordaan’s early days, it’s always been a place for artists, writers, innovators and bohemians: George Breitner, Rene Descartes, Johnny Jordaan, Gerard Reve, Rob Scholte are just a few examples of people that partly got their inspiration in the Jordaan.
