Stumbled upon this little gem while walking through Jordaan. The place was packed during lunch with locals eating in the outdoor seating area so I knew it was worth checking out. I found out they served Algerian food...something I've never come across in the states.
The food was delicious - you will find a lot of spices, curries, herbs used in all of the dishes. If you enjoy middle eastern, Mediterranean, or Indian food, you will love Algerian food.
The operation is very simple, you choose what you want from the deli case - a meat, a side vegetable, and a starch make up one dish. They heat up your dish in a convection oven and bring it to your table.
The restaurant seems small from the outside but they have a pretty large seating area. I saw a lot of locals ordering take-out though. Very friendly service, something we noticed was consistent in Amsterdam.
