THIS IS NOT A REAL REVIEW, BUT A TEST. RATINGS ARE RANDOM. Review: Amsterdam can be pretty dull on a Monday morning in October, especially when it's raining. But do not dispair for there is a solution. All one has to do is visit the Abraxas coffeeshop, purchase 1 gram of their Creme Du Maroc hashish for 14.00€ (gulp!), a coffee, and a fresh orange juice, and then find a nice place to sit and enjoy the space. Everything soon starts looking, and feeling, a whole lot better. The Big Bright Breakfast Experience is here!. Let's face it, the coffeeshops in Amsterdam do charge a lot of money for their "top drawer" wares, and I expect to get pretty high and stay there for some time at those prices. Hopefully Abraxas, and other coffeeshops of their like, can maintain the high standard of their hash and grass. I sampled the Hawaiian Haze, Dutch Delight, and Gloria varieties of weed, and found them all to be suitably colourful in affect. The Afghan Gold makes a pleasant change of pace from Moroccan and weed, but should really be smoked in a chillum for full enjoyment. If you're here on holiday, I certainly recommend that you visit Abraxas. The service and orange juice are both excellent. Also, marvellous muffins!! Description: Year 2000 coffeeshop cup winner. This coffeeshop is hidden away down a side street between KalverStraat and the Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal, and is really worth finding. Its' interior is fantastic, with 3 levels of mosaic, inlaid wood, glass floors, and spiral staircases. There are some really good little hideaway areas. The ground floor offers a bar and internet terminals (15mins free when you buy a drink), the second floor has lots of seating and a DJ booth, and on the top floor you can see plants growing in a grow room. Menu: Weed They have a good selection Biologic Weed from 5.00€ to 9.50€/gram. There's also imported Thai (5.50€), and Jamaican (7.50€) weed. Hashish The hash menu has Moroccan from 4.50€ to 14.00€/gram, and Black (Afghan, Charras, etc.) between 4.50€ and 12.50€/gram, Ice 16.00€/gram, and Scuff 7.00€/gram. Space food If that lot's not enough, then there's weed or hash muffins (3.75€), Space Hot Chocolat (4.50€), and Bonbons (5.70€).
