Eat: Meidi-Ya Amsterdam

meidi ya

In the good ol’ south of Amsterdam you’ll find one of the best shops to get your sushi.

In the 70s and 80s Amsterdam had quite a large influx of Japanese people as their big electronics, automotive and photographic equipment makers made their way to Europe so in 1974 Meidi-Ya opened its doors in Amsterdam as their only overseas location. At Meidi-Ya you can find much more than just sushi and this is actually a proper little Japanese supermarket. They have everything from dumplings, ice-cream, crispy seaweed sheets and other sushi paraphernalia to your hard to find japanese drinks and candy.
