Before I turn ur stomach inside out and whatever acidic leftovers on the floor,I think its best I started out with something nice ……
Ok, what do the Dutch people love to eat?
But first let me feed the birds downstairs…. *creating suspense (hee!)
No need to fight,there’s enough for everyone…
Eet Smakkelijk, my fine feathered friends (ducks,seagulls,pigeons,swans,water chickens)
Ok, food number 1-Patat (chips/fries with dollops of mayonaise)
Raw Haring-the lady was celebrating her birthday and she get dressed in traditional dutch costume and give free haring bites to everyone!
Mini cream puffs -its a dessert …it was served chilled.Some have ice-cream inside the fillings…
Stroopwafels-thin waffles with syrupy sugar fillings
Fish and seafood-fried fish,smoked mackerel,grilled salmon,smoked eel, fried mussels, and squids…..
Turkish pizza…american pizza..homemade pizza
This is poffertjes-mini pancakes covered in fresh butter and powdered suiker (sugar).We tried it at a restaurant with a 100jaar (year) old recipe.Lekker!
Poffertjes from the prepacked frozen ones in supermarket
Ok ,now u have a rough idea what food u can get in Holland…ok,let’s get to the creepy part… (are u ready?!!)This is worse than MJ’s thriller video….
Warning:Not for the faint hearted…
Sheep head,brains,cheeks and brains -cooked into soup.
Lamb Balls (pardon my language)
Roasted rabbit meat
Balls are intimidating. There is similar soup in KL called torpedo soup.Anyway, my roomy cut them into slices,marinate them with spices and deep fried.Taste like fried fish eggs/roe.
Rabbit meat taste like chicken but if u dont cook it right, there is a queer smell.Roasted rabbit marinated in spice is good.Or u can have it stewed or in soup. It keeps ur body warm in the winter
There u have it….I’ve tasted them all…..alhamdulillah.
