I know that I should stay away from pancakes after my sturdy Moroccan breakfasts a few weeks ago, but I happen to be in Amsterdam and it would be close to illegal to miss the infamous Pancake Bakery at Prinsengracht, just a few blocks from the Anne Frank house along the canal.
This is a place that takes pancakes very seriously, so naturally I fell in love right away. I chose the traditional pancake with bacon and cheese, which was good as gold.
The additional beer was also spot on and I can’t really imagine another city where you can order pancakes with bacon and beer without anyone raising an eyebrow.
Gosh, I’ve missed that out when I was in Amsterdam some years ago… so maybe time for a re-visit… I love pancakes…
They also had pancakes with kebab, rum, chocolate sauce and cinnamon ice cream!
One part of the menu was the international speciality section, where the “Swedish pancake” featured “pancake with deer in a game marinate of coriander and thyme with onions, carrot and cabbage, served with stewed pears and cranberry sauce”. Coriander and cranberry are not really the typical Swedish taste, but still a fun discovery on the menu.
