"Toko Kok Kita" is my favorite authentic Indonesian takeaway restaurant in Amsterdam. Let me help you out with ordering, which can be tricky if you're new!

If you’ve ever been on the Amstelveenseweg, the part close to Vondelpark, around 6 PM on any given day, you’ve probably seen a huge line of people waiting in front of a tiny takeaway restaurant. Its façade does not reveal much, but what awaits on the inside is worth every minute of waiting. Let me introduce you to Toko Kok Kita, my favorite authentic Indonesian takeaway in Amsterdam.

Being half Indonesian myself, I’m always on the hunt for the best ‘Indofood’ – or something that even comes close to all the deliciousness my family makes. This also means that I’m very – and I mean very – critical and hard to please. But oh boy, Kok Kita always hits the spot. Inside the narrow building awaits a large number of dishes, which, I can imagine, can be daunting if you’re not familiar with this cuisine.

So, let me help you out a bit. I usually pick the ‘nasi goreng rames’, which is a fried rice base, a spicy egg and your choice of 3 veggie dishes and 2 meat dishes. You can also have it with white rice (‘nasi rames’) or fried noodles (‘bami rames’) among others. There’s several beef (‘daging’), chicken (‘ayam’), shrimp (‘udang’), tempeh and other dishes to choose from. But really, you can’t go wrong here so just pick whatever looks best to you. Maybe just pay attention to the number of chilies indicating the spiciness level. Then finish it with some cassava chips and a Bintang beer – Selamat makan!
