Not sure how to translate this, but I think it's enough to say they are extremely delicious. The mini pancakes we tried were prepared in our presence and served up with a big glob of butter and a thick layer of powdered sugar. Don't eat them any other way.
2. Friet Met
In English this translates as Chips with. With what, you might ask. For the Dutch it's so evident that you'll be having it with mayo, that you don't even need to utter the word anymore. Just ask ask for 'chips with' and your chips will be served with lots of 'with'. To quote the famous line from the movie Pulp Fiction: We do fucking drown 'm in that shit!!

These deep fried balls are usually eaten over a glass of wine or a beer in the late afternoon. I can't tell you what's in them as nobody really knows. And it's probably best left that way. Dip 'm in mustard.

Yes, it doesn't sound nor look particularly appealing, but who cares. It tastes great. A dutch winter favorite with lots of bacon, veggies and most of all smoked sausage.

Now this one is also eaten in winter only and can consist of any vegetable you like. Just boil it, mash it up with potatoes and add a smoked sausage and voila; you have created a Dutch stamppot. Don't forget to dig a little hole in your pile of mash and pour some gravy in it.
6. Apple Pie
The way every Dutch person's grandmother used to make it. Lots of butter, lots of sugar and lots of whipped cream. Don't leave it for dessert, this is a meal in itself.
