Amsterdam Falafelshop’s 14th Street shop in Washington, D.C., is now offering its falafel-faithful a cold can of Dutch beer to accompany its culinary creations. The Restaurant Association of Metropolitan Washington award–winner for “Favorite Fast Bites” is known as a lunchtime and late-night destination favorite for D.C. residents, workforce, and visitors.
“Serving beer adds a touch more of that authentic Amsterdam experience to the fun, relaxed environment of the restaurant,” said Dane Cherry, co-owner of Amsterdam Falafelshop on 14th Street. “Our customers know that when they walk in here, it’s always about good vibes and great food. Now, a traditional beer is a part of the mix, too.”
The shop’s premium beers come from, of course, Amsterdam. Customers will be able to purchase 12-ounce cans of Heineken, Heineken Premium Light, Amstel Light, and the summer specialty Amstel Radler, a refreshing beer and lemon juice–style shandy. Oranjeboom, a Dutch lager brew, will be available in 16-ounce cans.
The 14th Street locale has been innovative with menu additions since it opened. Building off the flagship location and original menu in the Adams Morgan neighborhood, the shop features falafel bowls and curry ketchup.
Amsterdam Falafelshop has garnered a global fan base and consistently tops best-food lists, receives widespread food-critic acclaim, and has won over the hearts of discerning customers who have made it a highly rated restaurant on Yelp. In addition to serving fresh-made falafel sandwiches and Dutch-style fries, known as frieten, shops offer nearly two-dozen toppings for patrons to customize their falafel.
