Great quality products! - Edit

I stumbled upon this store recently. It is an oasis of great quality grains, sauces and other condiments as well as organic vegetables as well. I always stop by and stock up on different varieties of rice and legumes because I know that it is produced with great quality and macrobiotic standards. I also attended a cooking demonstration on wok classics which was also inspiring.

Pros: variety of grains, vegan , quality products

Cons: staff is not always helpful, lack of selection on some products, not a lot of vegetables

Macrobiotic goodness! - Edit

Nice cafe serving up good food! I was especially excited about the vegan blueberry muffin! It took quite a while before we received our meals but was worth the wait. The shop has a good range of products but leans toward the expensive side. Definitely worth visiting if in the area.

Pros: Fully vegan

Cons: Long wait for food

Like father, like son - Edit

In the same vein as the restaurant. Not that impressive, expensive and a little fussy. Not worth the hike out of the city centre to visit but if you are after some decent products and you happen to be in the area, then visit and make the most of it. Better city centre proximity exists.

Cons: Expensive

One of the best health aimed shop around! - Edit

Cherry picking the best products for us (having their own production of natto, supporting the local vegetable producers and cooperate with top japan providers). With 30+ years of experiences, very deep knowledge of healthy products/providers. They know what they are doing.

Simply one of the best healthy aimed shop & restaurant in Amsterdam/Nederlands/World, for me. Good luck/stay sharp ;-)

Pros: Top quality of food/products., Supporter of local production., Unique japan resources.

Cons: A little bit oldfashioned enviroment., Hard to find/see the way into the shop., The knowledge might be overwhelming...

Lots of macrobiotic stuff! - Edit

The shop is really small, but they carry some rare foods and ingredients, such as natto and nigari, as well as many other Japanese foods. So the shop is really different from all other health food stores in Amsterdam. If you like Japanese and macrobiotic cuisine - this place is for you.
The restaurant upstairs is quite small and expensive, but the food is nice and really healthy.

Pros: Good selection, Friendly staff, Lots of rare ingredients

Cons: The restaurant is quite expensive

Macrobiotic Paradise - Edit

The Deshima shop is situated in the basement of Europes main Macrobiotic center, the Kushi Insititute in Amsterdam. The place is an organic and macrobiotic paradise. They have every conceivable macrobiotic product you can imagine (even natto!), also a fair selection of fresh produce, many books on the topic of nutrition and macrobiotics as well as many utinsils etc ... I could go there everyday! The staff is very helpfull and also ship world wide.

Pros: Macrobiotic paradise, Broad selection of products, Shop worldwide

Cons: Not cheap
