Traditional Dutch food consists of deep fried beer snacks called "bitterballen", and are available at bars and cafes around Amsterdam. As for something a little heartier, pancakes or "pannenkoeken", with sweet or savory toppings, are the best Dutch meals one can have. Follow that with a piece of apple pie and you've covered Dutch cuisine. The real treat lies in exploring the many international flavors of Amsterdam. Indonesian cuisine has been appropriated by the Dutch as their own, and "kip sate" (chicken in a peanut sauce) is a popular dish not to be missed. From street stalls to elegant dining rooms, paper plates to fine china, restaurants will be one of your best glimpses into the heart, soul and belly of life in Amsterdam.
