The area
Address
Neighborhood: Centrum
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 hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.

We visited Amsterdam for my birthday in November, 2019, and wandered into this store almost by accident. We only stayed because of the friendly staff, but after sampling a range of lovely halvas and teas, we bought a slice of the pistachio flavoured one. Yes, it's 16.50 euros for 300g of halva. But it's worth it. Six months later, I just had a piece from the fridge, and it's as fresh as ever. And during this horrid lockdown here in the UK, it's bringing back some lovely memories of Amsterdam. There are some things you can't put a price on.

The most AMAZING halva Ive ever tried. . Antoine, who looked after me on my visit to this absolute GEM of a place made the experience all the more wonderful. Some of the best service I´ve ever come across. He was so friendly and enthusiastic about all the different flavours on offer, his personality really shone through. Thank you Antoine for such a great experience!

Well- we thought we were just poking our noses into SUMSUM since we fell in love with the window display and hadn’t had halva since we were kids. After sampling the teas and almost every flavor of halva- we walked out with bags almost too heavy to carry! The staff was friendly, helpful, informative and very patient with us. Their generous samples allowed us to try until we decided which we wanted to purchase. They had a special- so we felt that even though prices were not cheap- we came home with so many treats and the ingredients were high quality. Surprisingly- we still have some left and we’ve been home over a week!! The teas, especially, make great gifts.

We love halva. We last ate some amazing halva in Istanbul and nothing else seems to compare. Well until we visited Sumsum.

The pistachio halva is so so good. The flavors are perfect, the sugar levels just right, and the taste authentic. Glad we do not live close to this store, as I would keep going back for more. Hard to resist.

I don’t even know why we wandered in here but I am sure glad we did! We were given free samples of halva (most of which was vegan), tahini (that was being made right in front of our eyes), date honey (again, vegan), and chocolate tea! We learned about some new foods and walked out the door with some mahalabia halva (orchid and cinnamon) and some pistachio halva. I wish I had bought some tahini and date honey too!

I found it by accident. I walked by it looked in and thought it looked different and interesting. I was right. I never knew there were that varieties of Halvah. You can try as many as you like+their tahini was very good. You can even try one of their teas. The service is outstanding.

Strolling down the street I came to this shop. Inivted to taste a couple of preparation, the person was generous and end up tasting all.

Awesome taste and as I have sweet tooth, ended up buying some for home. As soon as I reached on finished half of it with friend

If you have sweet tooth should visit the place.

Please do not forget to taste the tea
