    Former EFES, now Agam: Tender Turkish delights

    by pieter_jan_v Updated May 16, 2015

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This restaurant is located in one of the many small streets in the old Alkmaar city center. The street is called FNIDSEN, what is derived from the word VENICE (Alkmaar has canals too!). Around one corner is the famous wooden house with the canon ball; around the other corner you end up at the famous cheese market square.

    I revisited the restaurant in early 2015 and learned that the chef had bought the place 3 years ago and renamed it into Agam.

    Food wise things are only improved and I had a fantastic dinner.

    Business hours:
    Mo: Closed
    Tu-Su: 4PM - Midnight

    Favorite Dish: I enjoined grilled chicken and it almost melted in my mouth. And that after a free soup as a starter.

    I revisited Alkmaar in early 2015. Somehow I read about the Eetpaleis and is also was on the free map that was available at my hotel.
    I did not visit the place as I wanted to go to two other restaurant, but took some pictures from the outside.

    DELI: Nice Indonesian restaurant

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    DELI is an Indonesian restaurant. The Babi Pagang I tried was prepared in a different taste I was used at the many Chinese Restaurants in Holland. Perhaps it was a bit to much Soya taste, but overall I would rate it 7 points (out of 10).

    Business hours:
    Mo-Tu: Closed
    We-Su: 5PM - 10PM

    Favorite Dish: I tried a Nasi Babi Pagang.

    Restaurant De Buren: An unique place.

    by Jerelis Written Nov 1, 2012

    Where to have lunch whenever you’re hiking the streets of Alkmaar. The last time I visited the city I was with Paulien and the 3 kids. They all suggested to have lunch at the HEMA, do you want to believe that? For me the HEMA is way to ordinary and especially no option whenever you know that Alkmaar has much better to offer than that. For example the Restaurant De Buren right in the historical center of Alkmaar, a place with much more character for sure!

    The very nice Restaurant De Buren is located In the middle of Alkmaar and has an unique place combined with the history of the very nearby Visbank (former fish market). The rustic building has for many years been a beacon of hospitality, tradition and culinary class on travelers level. In both the summer and winter you can enjoy the beautiful and completely renewed terrace, because it is heated. We witnessed that the staff was professional and very friendly. For the lunch De Buren will offer the an nice menu of pita sandwiches, salads, high tea and coffee beverages. We enjoyed our hot shredded ham sandwich (a beef sandwich of thin slices of seasoned roast beef, dripping with meat juices, on a dense long Italian-style roll) and old Dutch cheese sandwich to go with coffee and ice-tea.
