The Pancake Bakery--Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Looking to try Dutch pancakes our last night in Amsterdam, we went to The Pancake Bakery. I was intrigued by the pancake with apple and cinnamon ice cream and cinnamon liqueur,  but it was served with the ice cream a bit soupy.

Better was the summer special ordered by Tyler. It had strawberries, ice cream that wasn't runny and shavings of Belgian chocolate.

The best part of each dish, though, was the pancake itself, which was closer to a crepe than a pancake one would find in the US. I really enjoyed the springy texture that only an abudance of eggs can provide.
The pancakes were expensive, though, and run about $16 and up per dish.
