HARTOG‘s Volkoren Bakkerij [whole wheat bakers]. They are the only baker in the Netherlands where they ground the grains on the premises. Their shop is not the largest, but people don’t mind to cycle an extra 15 minutes to get to the store and when they arrive they also don’t mind to wait their turn on the curb to get their daily loaf. Almost all products* are made with whole wheat flour, and without artificial additives. Just flour, water, yeast and no preservatives. *Spelt flour is also milled and baked at Hartog’s.
Last Saturday their Dutch donuts, made of whole wheat flour won the best sandwich of the week award by Het Parool, another Best of Amsterdam winner.
On their site they have a documentary [long version 31 minutes, short version 6 minutes] titled “Het geheim van de rij” [The secret of the row] sorry, only Dutch spoken. So when in Amsterdam, visit Hartog Volkoren Bakkerij or if you need a sandwich, or coffee, or… step in at Boterham. BTW, a sign inside their sandwich shop says you can bring your own sandwiches… up until now no-one has done so.
Boterham [translates to: Sandwich]
