Dutch people are very big with Indonesian food (which is often called "chinese" with locals). Things like Nasi Goreng (fried rice), Bami Goreng (stir fried noodles) and Satay (skewered, grilled meat dish) are hugely popular in the similar way with the English people and curry. Probably asking local people will be a best solution as to where you can get the good Indonesian... don't worry, almost every Dutch people speaks excellent english with ease. Personally I enjoyed many street foods, I loved the bakeries which are everywhere, teeming with mouth watering and sinful pies and croissants and what not. and also the french fries!! Also for a little sweet snack, try the stroop waffeln, sweet syrup sandwiched between a pair of little crunchy waffles... they are delicious!!

Mussels in Brussels - you'll be there in a month with an "r" in it, so it's mussels season. Last time we were in Amsterdam, they were good there, too. I ate more mussels that week than the rest of the year combined. :) No specific restaurant... just find one that has a good looking menu and go for it. There are so many great restaurants that it's probably not even worth giving a restaurant name. You'd probably never get there for finding one you like before you reach it.

Ahhh, A-Dam. the memories, the food, the black-outs! I agree With every-one who commented, go with an open mind and empty stomach. I do recommend the Bulldog if it's still open. Great menu!
