Stroopwafels are very popular Dutch sweet: they’re crisp yet still soft like a waffle inside, and are often served along with tea or coffee in the Netherlands. The sweet was first made in the small Dutch town of Gouda in the 18th century.
As the name implies, these are basically thin wafers sliced horizontally and filled with a warm, sticky stroop (syrup), like honey or cinnamon-caramel, that glues the two halves together.
Make sure to get your fill of warm and crispy stroopwafels from road-side vendors when you’re in Rotterdam next. Do not forget to add a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of your favourite ice cream — you’re in for a treat!
Wishing you healthy travels. Smakelijk eten!
