Stroopwafel

Who doesn't like waffles? Practically everyone loves waffles. If you don't like waffles, there must be something wrong with you! Well, just kidding! But seriously though, waffles are those types of food that will perk you up just right. Especially when sweetened with some nice syrup! This is probably why it's such a staple breakfast treat. And in the Netherlands, their own version is small but still delightful. Their Stroopwafels are round and often thin layers of waffles stuck together with syrup. They mostly come in small sizes, enough for you to pair with a nice cup of tea or a warm mug of coffee!

Poffertjes

In Amsterdam, whether you order it at a pancake house or get them from a street vendor, Poffertjes are treats you simply must have. These fluffy mini pancakes are like tiny bits of heaven! They're so soft and sweet, it's like your biting into delightful clouds. Especially when you smear some light butter unto them. Or when they're sprinkled with some powdered sugar? Heavenly! What's great about them is they're essentially like your ordinary pancakes, which means you can just as easily make some at home. When you do, try to eat them when they're freshly cooked. There's no beating a warm batch of poffertjes!

Stamppot

Now for something savoury... and juicy! On a cold rainy day, the Dutch answer to keep your spirits up is often a big plate of Stamppot. What is it, exactly? Well, it's mashed potatoes mixed in with some delectable vegetable bits and served with a might piece of sausage. Each element serves an important role. The mashed potatoes, especially when hot, provides a soft sensation to warm you up. The vegetable bits, on the other hand, enhances the flavour and makes the dish a healthy option. And the sausage? Well, a delicious piece of meat wouldn't now, would it?

Kibbeling

While the Brits have their fish & chips, the Dutch have their Kibbeling. Both share a lot of similarities in offering up some fishy goodness. You take pieces of cod, coat them up with some nice batter, and fry them until they're golden brown. The result? Seafood perfection! Especially when you dip it into some herb-enthused mayonnaise with a small squeeze of lemon!. Now that's a tangy treat! The main difference from their English counterpart is that you don't need some chunky chips to enjoy this snack. The fish is enough, especially when fried just right!

Tompouce

Let's go back to something sweet for dessert. A delectable Dutch dessert that will fill your mouth with alive on first look is the Tompouce. This soft and spongy pastry, rectangle in shape, is enough to satisfy all your sweet cravings in one sitting. You'll know it's the tompouce when you see its recognizable pink icing drizzled perfectly onto the pastry. Topped with a strip of cream, it looks like the perfect type of dessert to smack someone's head with in a slapstick comedy. But don't waste the creamy goodness that is the filling inside. You'll regret it if you do!
