I will take you on a virtual tour of some Dutch Treats…
We start here with a “toastie” with toasted cheese and herbs on top and a chocolate mousse dessert from a popular Dutch department store’s cafe, de Bijenkorf.
Of course, one of the most well-known Dutch stereotypes is their cheese, primarily Gouda and Edam cheese, both named after Dutch towns.
Here are some various flavored Gouda Cheese: red pepper, pesto, and sheep’s milk cheese.
Here is a cheese store where cheese is made. Check it out…
Febo is a popular automated food stop, where coins are put in the machine, then a door in a heated shelf is opened to get the food out. Krokets (Dutch croquette/croquetas) are popular, and also burgers.
Another well known part of Dutch cuisine is Herring. There are stands located in many places, primarily near the sea. Photos below happen to be in Volendam.
The fried cod is delicious and spicy.
French fries (frites) are extremely popular in Holland, with many fast food joints serving just fries with a long order list of toppings. Some places serving them in paper cones with little fork picks to eat them with.
This hot dog stuffed in a bread/pastry pocket with ketchup and mustard, is also a popular quick eat at concession stands.
These plates are also very Dutch and delicious.
Ah and Stroopwafels! They are in all the grocery stores and very easy to find. They are like a cookie waffle sandwiched together with caramelized syrup in the inside with cinnamon and sugar glazed on the cookie.
Waffle with Nutella and whipped cream.
