Dutch Food at The Frying Dutchmen
You can get these at the My Old Dutch chain, but I've always questioned whether they're actually Dutch in that place. So last weekend a fellow Dutch expat and I went down to Brick Lane in pursuit of the Frying Dutchmen, for some authentically handmade poffertjes.
They fry bake the poffertjes and fry the chips on the spot in their makeshift stall which is really a marquee and two old foldable kitchen tables. Besides the mini pancakes we were after, they also sell chips with mayo, kroketten (which are made of a meat ragout with a crispy breaded coating), frikandellen (which are best described as Dutch hot dogs), and cheese souffles.
