And being one of the national food of the land of clogs and tulips, you can find this famous pancakes in every corner of Amsterdam. But if you want your journey to pancakes be more exciting, then look for this...
and here's the journey going up...
it ain't your ordinary dining place...it's fuss-free and homey (i blurred the faces of my friend and her sister as I didn't ask their permission:D)
teapots everywhere (i'm sure they wouldn't notice if you try to steal one) and a portrait of the dutch royalties...gezellig, huh?
The indonesian staff was very nice to us. We even exchanged our experiences learning the dutch language and he's taking his state exam for dutch proficiency this week so good luck to him. :)
What is nice about dutch pancakes is its thin crust (crepe in texture) as it let you savor the toppings and the fillings at its best. And, i love its versatility. So i went hawaiian with bacon, cheese, tomato and of course, pineapple slices.
My friend chose apples on top of her bacon and tomato pancakes. She was sure that apples are always a perfect companion with anything savory.
Her sister got the same as mine but with an exotic topping (caramaelized gember - ginger)
Even though these were savory pancakes, the syrup-stroop still blended well with it (check out that Van Gilse bottle). We love the stroop on our pancakes!
The serving was pretty huge and it was difficult to finish. At some point, my friend and I poked all the bacon strips in the pancakes. haha
Did you notice we all ordered pancakes with bacon? Because, you can never go wrong with bacon in any dish or having it alone. It is super! (dutch expression).
Try it out when you had the chance to visit Amsterdam whether you're a local or not.
Pancakes are priced around 8-9+ euro. If you're not a big eater, I would suggest to share it with your travel mate or your partner in crime.
