What’s negative about having an award winning delicacy shop right around the corner of your house? I guess the only thing that I can think of is the fact that after having been here your own sandwiches never turn out this tasty which results in me spending a lot of money here. But that’s hardly a punishment!
JWO stands for Jan Willem and Onki, the shop owners who are always in for laugh and your everyday chit chat. They know and love food! My favourite is ‘Broodje zomers’ on a whole grain triangle sandwich. It’s made up out of smoked beef, rocket, pine nuts, sundried tomatoes and pesto. Combine this sandwich with a big glass of freshly squeezed orange juice and my day just doesn’t get any better. Other things that I recommend are the Vitello Tonnato sandwich (veal and tuna), the JWO’tje (homemade meatball with cheese inside) or try a fresh Surinam pastry.
I also like to come here to buy the oldest Amsterdam cheese. They have so many types of cheese, which makes it almost impossible to have tried them all. Be amazed by all the lovely products that are on display here and fill your fridge with all kinds of delicacies such as raw ham or olives. One thing’s for sure, you’ll never return home hungry or empty handed!
Tip: Tell the store owners some things that you like and let them advise (or surprise!) you on which sandwich to try. Otherwise I’d have never discovered some of my favourites.
