Typical Dutch food
Here are some examples you might want to try:
“Stroopwafels” – a typical Dutch treat which might at first glance not look very special but after tasting them you will surely want more.
A stroopwafel consists out of 2 thin waffles glued together by a thin film of syrup.
If you are lucky enough to be in the city on one of the special market days there is often a stall where they are freshly baked to order.
A cast iron waffle press gives them their typical shape.
“Dutch apple pie” – a deep filled apple pie with cinnamon and raisins in a sweet pastry.
This always goes well with one of the specialty coffees available in the cafes.
“Erwtensoep” – a thick winter pea soup with smoked sausage for cold days.
