As a fairly new Amsterdammer, I still depend on others to show me the best hotspots. Restaurant-wise, my sister knows her stuff. To celebrate the summery weather, we decided to go to Mercat. This restaurant is inspired by the Spanish markets
(hence the name). Food-wise, you will find Spanish dishes such as tapas and churros. However, this is not your typical tapas restaurant. The place looks absolutely stunning; we especially liked the neon lights surrounding the bar. Mercat is situated next to Panama in Amsterdam-Oost (East).
