Toko Ramee is one of the many Asian/Indonesian toko’s that Amsterdam has to offer. Especially in this area (close to the famous Albert Cuyp market) there are lots and lots of these shops, a lot of them hidden away behind market stalls and in little basements. Toko Ramee isn’t quite as hidden away as some of them, though it is unfortunately slightly overshadowed by the McDonald’s on the one side and a large flower stall on the other.
I come here every once in a while for a couple of beef pasties. They are my favorite with their crunchy pastry and juicy filling. But there’s lots of food to choose from, different kinds of snacks and also take away meals. Toko Ramee is known to have the best lemper in town (a roll made out of sticky rice with a slightly sweet chicken filling) and they also specialize in lots of different sorts of homemade sambal. Toko Ramee is a great place to pick up some quick snacks, do some elaborate asian food shopping, or to just have a look around.
