After returning from the Zaanse Schans windmill village, we continued walking around the city centre until it was time for dinner.
Since we had some free time to spare, we shopped around in the Magna Plaza until we were hungry. The shopping mall was located behind the Queens Palace on the Dam square, it was a nice mall to shop for designer clothing and fashion accessories.
When it was time for dinner, we took the tram to the Jordaan neighbourhood. We found Pancakes! Amsterdam and dined in the place. The café opens from 10am until 7pm, we arrived early to have an early dinner that day.
The place was rather small, but it was nice and cosy. We found out about this place from our usual TripAdvisor and Lonely Planet guide.
Since we are big fans of poffertjes (traditional Dutch pancakes), we decided to try their poffertjes with powdered sugar and butter which was priced at €5.50. It took them a while to serve the poffertjes but it was definitely worth the wait. We loved the mini Dutch pancakes! They were very fresh, light and fluffy, simple but delicious when eaten with the powdered sugar and butter.
For our second pancake, we decided to be adventurous and tried their Indian style pancake with chickpea pancake served with three types of condiments – chicken curry, mango chutney and cucumber salad. Priced at €12.50, Pancakes! impressed us again. The chickpea pancake was thin and crusty, very delicious when eaten with the chicken curry or the mango chutney. The cucumber salad was very sour and appetising, a balanced contrast to the curry.
We loved the pancakes in Pancakes! They were very delicious and addictive! Service was very good as well. We would highly recommend readers to check this place out when visiting Amsterdam. For more information and menu, please read more on their website. Stay with us for the last post on Amsterdam!
