The Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam, the Netherlands is undergoing a major renovation this year. Nevertheless, I had fun exploring the transit area before catching my flight to Jakarta, Indonesia. My BFF and I stopped at Dutch Kitchen to rest our legs and satisfy our hunger pangs.
Pikachu was so happy as he couldn't wait to take out the flag to play with it. :P
Poffertjes €4.75 (~S$7.25)
Poffertjes is a traditional Dutch mini pancakes that's typically served with butter and powdered sugar. A dozen of it served at the eatery didn't come with sugar though. Nevertheless, they were pretty savoury and fluffy. Pika's advice: Those with young children, you may be interested to know that it's written on the menu that "kids smaller than 1 meter tall eat for free!"
Amsterdam Croquettes €6.50 (~S$9.90)
Served on top of a boring slice of white bread that's labelled as "country bread" on the menu, each of the two croquettes were tasty nonetheless. Its outside layer was truly crunchy.
Inside it was a creamy concoction of white sauce with presumably ground beef, if not other red meat. It was heart-warming.
Fish and Chips €7.95 (~S$12.15)
Dutch love their kibbeling (lit. cod). The deep-fried fish nuggets were enjoyably moist on the inside, but the outside could be crispier. Those, together with the nice thick-cut fries, weren't oily. Both of them went well with the sweet and zesty remoulade sauce made of mayonnaise, mustard and garlic, among others.
Organic Yogurt Orange Banana Shake €3.75 (~S$5.70)
It was an interesting combination of two tropical fruits with yogurt, I thought, which turned out to have a significantly higher content of orange juice. The result was a not-so-thick drink that was definitely drinkable, but not as nice as I thought it'd be.
