The Dutch all appear tall and slim to the visitor, but it has to be the biking that's the secret to their physiques, not the lunches. The kroket is a Dutch staple and is carbs, upon carbs and served with a side of carbs.
I sampled one at the restaurant Vertigo in Vondelpark. Served with sliced wheat bread, the kroket is a friend tube of thick meaty gravy. Careful - they are very hot when served.
