Since being back in the United States, the one dish from my European travels that I cannot stop thinking about comes from Café Wester in Amsterdam. Like most good things in life we just happened upon this café as we were on a search for some authentic Dutch apple pie. Now I do not want to take anything away from the pie, because it was truly something special – with its light, flaky crust and its slightly tart filling.
But the dish that had me coming back to Wester Café two days in a row was the “mix of warm snacks.” It may sound unassuming, but let me tell you it is a plate of fried deliciousness. So, let me break it down:
Even if fried goodness isn’t your thing (which would make you crazy) the Café Wester is still a cool place worth checking out. Not only does it serve Heineken Extra Cold (chilled to zero degrees), but it has a friendly wait staff and a laidback and funky vibe – making it an ideal place to pass the time.
