Netherlands, Amsterdam Guide (B): Eats: Amsterdam

Eats: Amsterdam
No matter how near or far you are from home, a recommendation for a good restaurant or bar is always nice to have. EATS is a collection of places that I’ve enjoyed during my travels.

The Pancake Bakery

When in the Netherlands eat Dutch pancakes, and one of the most popular places to do so in Amsterdam is The Pancake Bakery. Located off the Prinsengracht canal in the Jordaan neighborhood and specializes in large (think pizza-sized) pancakes with too-many-to-choose from topping combinations. Trust me, you’ll have a hard time picking from the laundry list of traditional pancakes (both savory and sweet), house specialties and international pancakes like the French (goat cheese, sun dried tomatoes, pine nuts, thyme and honey) or the Thai (chicken, curry and vegetables). If you’re a Dutch pancake novice and still wondering what to expect, think of something that’s thicker than a French crêpe but thinner than an American pancake. The menu also offers a handful of other options including omelets and desserts like mini poffertjes pancakes that can be smothered in toppings ranging from chocolate to cherries and more. Given its novelty The Pancake Bakery is likely to be crowded, so definitely pack your patience. The interior is also a bit smoky because of its open central kitchen where all of the delicious pancake magic happens.
