A relatively new neighborhood in the extreme western part of the city, the first houses were built here in 1955—and the area is named after the canal Slotervaart. Right near the residential area is Slotervaartzienkenhuis, a prominent hospital, and the Netherlands Cancer Institute. While the hospital is a central attraction, the surrounding restaurants and cafes ensure your appetite stays healthy as well. Choose from classic Indonesian cuisine, authentic Thai, solid Asian noodles with a fusion twist, and cozy Dutch gastropubs and diners. While it may not look like a culinary hotspot on first glance, this area has gems hidden in plain sight.
