T Amsterdam

T – Two words: cajun chicken

As a student I studied at the University of Amsterdam and as there’s no main campus, you get to explore the city and go to one of their many buildings. Near one of those buildings is T, a girly, high tea-ish, healthy super-food and what not, kind of cafe. Not a place for me, but they have a killer chicken cajun sandwich.

During the months of studying, this place is filled with young ladies grabbing tea after studying (across the street is one of the uni buildings) and young moms (a kindergarten is around the corner). Yes, it can get a little crowded so try to visit during irregular hours as the staff will be nicer and the food will come quicker. From fresh pies, cakes and cookies to a whole lot of sandwiches, drinks, smoothies, coffee and tea, T has it all. Served in a vintage look the place has a nice charm and I understand why a lot of girls come here to take a break. It’s like T knows some guys will visit so they added the chicken cajun sandwich. Though maybe not authentically spiced, it is a really good chicken sandwich.

I’m not really up for their smoothies, teas and healthy drinks, it’s the chicken cajun I come for. So if you find yourself with someone searching for this, (guys, be smart, take your girlfriends here), let them be in awe of the menu and make it easy for yourself, order the chicken cajun sandwich.
