Jo (jo104) and I share a love of pancakes so when I mentioned I was coming to town she offered to arrange a VT meeting for me in London at My Old Dutch. It was great to see some old friends and meet some new friends and although at least one VTers order got screwed up, it seemed like they were able to serve a larger group reasonably well.

Favorite Dish: Dutch pancakes, or Pannekoek are large, light pancakes. The ingredients are cooked into the pancake unlike crepes or traditional pancakes where the ingredients are inside or on top.

I ordered the Amsterdammer, sauteed apple with smoked bacon and maple syrup. The pancake was huge, a little light on the toppings for my taste. I think I prefer crepes that are filled over the Dutch style of pancakes. I should have stopped there but they had waffles on the dessert menu so I ordered one with bananas, whipped cream and chocolate. Good, but nothing like the waffles I had in Belgium.
