Scarf Dutch pancakes along Utrecht's main canalDutch pancakes are about as typical as it gets in Holland. At De Oude Muntkelder Pannenkoekenrestaurant you can order them savory, or sweet, traditional, international and made-to-order (whole wheat is available). For children, there are even pancakes shaped like cars, animals and pirates.
Since I saw the size of the pancakes a few tables over, and knew I couldn't possibly eat more than one, I ordered a half and half pancake with a cup of black coffee. One side had a couple of strips of crispy bacon and the other had ripe chunks of pineapple.
It was tasty, but I think I would have liked it better if the bacon side had something else too, like cheese, or onions.
On warm days, the canal-side terrace is gorgeous, but it was still pretty chilly when I was there in March, so I sat inside, because I don't like to eat in my coat.
