When you think of the Dutch, what type of food comes to mind? Gouda probably. And maybe herring.
I’m admit it, The Netherlands isn’t my number one choice for cuisine, but the Dutch do have some really tasty dishes. Here are my favorites:
Cheese sandwiches. But not just cheese sandwiches. Super delicious varieties with mayo, mustard, avocado, and more.
Dutch coffee. Neither an espresso nor an Americano, Dutch coffee is somewhere perfectly in between. And it always comes with a cookies, so there’s that too.
Kibbeling. Cheap and delicious.
Cookie butter. Obviously this is one of the best things to ever come out of the Netherlands. Add some hagelslag on top and your mind will be blown.
Poffertjes Tiny puffed pancakes. So yeah, they’re awesome.
Apple pie tart. Why is this so much better than any apple pie I’ve eaten in America?!
No words can describe the majesty of the stroopwafel. (By the way, it’s not a real waffle…it’s 1000x better than that)
Gummies. So. Many. Gummies.
White asparagus. Okay, yes, it looks…weird. But trust me– it’s delicious!
Belgian beer. Okay, not it’s Dutch per se…but Belgium is so close that their beer in incredibly easy to come by in the Netherlands.
Frites. Technically also Belgian. But these deliciously cheap fries (complete with Dutch mayo) are everywhere.
Do you have a Dutch favorite that I missed?
