XIAOLI was so super nice and so polite and presented all the varieties of Halva while we tried it. It's such a high quality and more seeds than sugar. I really loved it in the store and would definitely come back. Many thanks!!!!

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
