Would you wait in line outside for the best pancakes in Amsterdam?
I did! And it was absolutely worth the wait.
Before leaving for Amsterdam I did a little research on the Internet to find out, where to go for the good pancakes in Amsterdam.
One place in particular showed up in my search The Pancake Bakery.
Not only does it have a Wall of Fame with visitors like Alicia Keys, Paris Hilton and Miley Cyrus, they also have almost 2.000 likes on their Facebook page, and more than 10.000 visitors. AND they have the domain www.pancake.nl
Reservations at this place is only possible for parties of 6 or more people – so me, myself and I just had to show up, and wait in line, as it turned out.
The weather in Amsterdam was lovely today – sun was shining, no wind and about 8 degrees Celsius. So waiting in line was fine, and I had good company with two groups of Americans who had never had Dutch pancakes before.
I could write a at least a post or two in how I find waiting in line to be kind of a blessing. I will one day, but for now just trust, that it was a pleasure.
The Pancake Bakery is a great place, and the service was a pleasure. Most impressive was the cook sweating in the kitchen swinging the heavy cast iron pans around and flipping the pancakes.
Almost a type of Pancake baking CrossFit exercise!
Since I had pancakes with apple and cinnamon yesterday (#1) I decided to go for the Plain pancake today.
Just plain and simple.
Add a little of the thick syrup.
And some powdered sugar.
And what a treat it was!
Tomorrow I promise to do a follow up post about Pancaking around Amsterdam, and also share with you what type of pan I decided to bring back home for the next Afternoon Pancake event on April 12.
