Comfort food supreme


Are you one of the persons that founds himself thinking "Why do people kill themselves in a world that has pancakes?", after your tube got delayed by a jumper at rush hour.

Then the Old Dutch Pancake House is the place for you. If you're always looking for a good deal, then it's even better if you make a visit on a Monday.

At a stone throw from Holborn station, this pancake house offers any of its menu pancakes for 5 pounds to ease the pain of the gloomiest day of the week.


In shades of white and orange, this cosy venue offers you every kind of Pannekoek, the large and thin traditional Dutch pancakes, with diverse toppings from Mexican and Chilli combinations to simple maple syrup and ice cream.

The pancakes are served in big ceramic plates that reveal a different Netherlands landscape as you devour your respective order.

Showing windmills and tulip fields in all their splendour.
For me the best option is the typical Dutch Poffertjes, small spongy pancakes with maple syrup and powder sugar. It's the perfect comfort food for any of life's worries. If you can't remember any, then just try harder.

The waiter are extremely nice but make sure you don't get there to close to rush hour since the place gets packed quickly and you'll be left outside waiting for your turn; like you were in a nightclub in Mayfair.

But here the wait is worth it.
Dutch people deserve an award
