De Dutch Pannekoek House


  Hi guys!! :D Sorry I've been MIA for the past week ~ I started an intensive allergy treatment program and I've pretty much been bedridden for the past few days. I've been sleeping 15 hours a day (on the days I don't have school.) If everything goes as planned, I'll be able to eat fruit and raw vegetables by summer...OMG. Cold pressed juice...here I come!!! *happy dance*

  This visit to De Dutch was from a few months back, back when I was still able to eat dairy!! My parents and I went to De Dutch for brunch on a long weekend, instead of going for dim sum (like we always do.) Come to think of it, I haven't had a "proper" brunch in SO LONG. I use to be so obsessed with *brunching*

  De Dutch specializes in Pannekoeken, Dutch pancakes!! They're deceivingly huge, but eating an entire pancake is totally feasible because they're super thin!! De Dutch is a chain with locations all over the GVR, we went to the one in New West! :D



The Farmer Pannekoeken
DeBakon, Ham, Bratwurst, Eggs, Hashbrowns, Hollandaise

3/5 stars

  The pannekoeken itself is deceivingly large, but it's actually super thin!! The pannekoeken was moist and egg-y tasting. I wasn't fond of the ham or bratwurst because it tasted really "fake" harhar...if you know what I mean. The bacon was quite nice though, it was really crispy with a bit of charring on the edges! The hash was fine, but I would've preferred if it was crispier. 



Pumpkin Cream Cheese Pannekoeken

3.5/5 stars

 My parents wanted to order a sweet pannekoeken, so they got one to share! The pumpkin cream cheese flavour is limited to their fall menu. It was doused with a generous amount of powdered sugar and came with pumpkin flavoured cream cheese and whip cream on the side! They really liked the pumpkin cheesecake flavour; the pumpkin flavour was evident but it wasn't too sweet!



The Hash Pannekoeken
Hashbrowns, Mushrooms, Green Peppers, Onions, Cheddar, Sausage, Hollaindaise

3/5 stars

  The parentals also got a savoury pannekoeken to share!! The hash was quite basic, something you could easily replicate at home. It was decent though! The cheese was well melted and there was a generous amount of ingredients, it wasn't too salty either!



How cute is this little basket?! 


Marmalade, jam, peanut butter...De Dutch's got you covered!

  1. The only other similar Dutch non-chain restaurant would be Dutch Wooden Shoes Cafe in Cambie, not far from Cafe Gloucester. I did go to both places but stopped doing so when I learned to do crepes. After all (and at the risk of oversimplifying it), a pannekoek would be a supersized crepe. The trick, wasn't the recipe (it is darn simple - 1 cup of flour, 1 cup of milk, 1/2 cup of water, 2 eggs. Add sugar and vanilla essence if sweet), was rather the pan: A regular pan won't do as you would have problems trying to flip without breaking it. Instead, you have to get one where the sides are really low. Funny enough, IKEA sells them for ~$10. Learning to make them wasn't bad at all: Neither De Dutch or Dutch Wooden Shoes are cheap for the amount of food.

      Agreed, De Dutch isn't exactly "cheap," but it's fun to try once! ;D
