Yum. We love this place – and not just for the Ren & Stimpy reference. Serving Asian streetfood in small sharer dishes, Happyhappyjoyjoy can always be counted on for a fun, informal atmosphere and delicious food, with friendly staff (a rarity in Amsterdam).  Go with friends and order a bunch of dishes to share, and then order some more.

Here’s what they say on their website:

“The turbulent streets, rich flavors and bright colors of Asia, typical for cities like Bangkok, Saigon and Hong Kong, come together in Amsterdam. Steaming pans, sizzling barbecues and hot woks in the large open kitchen are at the heart of Happyhappyjoyjoy West & East. Discover these hangouts with a menu of sweet, sour, salty, bitter and umami.”

There are two Happyhappyjoyjoy locations to choose from – one in West and one in Oost (East). The Happyhappyjoyjoy West is more intimate, while the newer Oost branch is large and airy, with a big fairy lit terrace outside for sunny evenings.
