Must haves/ Fun Foods/ Specials

It was recommended to me as a must see/visit place. I am a big cheese fan, which holland is famous for, so i really want to see if the cheese is as good as I read everywhere. Just all in all a quality goods shop is what is seems to me. O and ofcourse it was in Seinfeld. But if you tell me it's nothing special, I won't go there just for zabars.

Must haves/ Fun Foods/ Specials

Thanks all you guys for your anwsers! I'll explore them all on the net first and i'll see which ones i'll visits.

To awnser Kathryn's questions:

I'm coming in from Amsterdam and we get lots of different foods around here from different cultures.

I don't like fish because of the taste. Be it Salmon, Shrimp or whatever. When I eat any kind of fish I get the same taste in my mouth as if I where smelling raw fish even when it's spiced. Deep fried takes it a way little bit, but still not a fan.

Thanks again all of you for your help!
