Toko Dun Yong

Amsterdam's Chinatown is growing daily, with new shops opening along the edge of the district, servicing the booming restaurant trade and immigrant population as well as the growing interest in Asian food among Europeans.

Toko Dun Yong, a multilevel department store, has been selling a wide variety of products made in China since 1957. This is the class market in Amsterdam's Chinatown, with far more items than the other, smaller markets carry.

Their excellent selection of food, kitchenware, ceramics, furniture, books, music, restaurant equipment and decorations are without peer in Amsterdam. Whether you're looking for just the right size wok, or that special kind of tea you'll find it here or nowhere.

If you can make it past the first floor's enormous selection of edibles, venture downstairs to the basement's treasure horde of kitchen and restaurant items. You'll be sorely tempted to buy that long desired kitchen implement. I was amazed to see such a range of items, including things I didn't expect to find in a Chinese store, like Paella pans (in 2 sizes!).

With all the other Chinese specialty stores around, the prices might not be the best on certain items, but it's hardly worth the time to shop all over to save a few cents, when this place has it all.
