    De Vuursche Boer: Dutch pancakes

    by magor65 Written Jul 20, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Lage Vuursache lies half-way between Amsterdam and Utrecht. It's surrounded by woods and has not much more than one street lined with a couple of shops and restaurants, most of which are pancakes houses.
    Brought here on a September Saturday afternoon by our Dutch friends, we were surprised to find out how popular, mainly with locals, this place was. We dined in De Vuursche Boer restaurant specialising in pancakes.

    Lately I have read somewhere on the Internet that Queen Beatrix, who abdicated a few months ago, decided to move into Castle Drakensteyn, her property in Lage Vuursche. She used to live here as a Princess until 1981 when she and her family moved to the Hague ( after Beatrix became the Queen). The property is well hidden behind a tall fence in the middle of the forest so don't expect to see it. But who knows? Perhaps one day the ex-queen will feel like having a pancake with the local people?

    Favorite Dish: There is a wide variety of pancakes ranging from the sweet ones served with fruit and whipped cream to the ones with ham and cheese. A very popular dish, judging by the number of orders, is a bacon (speck) pancake accompanied by apple or pineapple sauce. The prices start at 6 Euro and the most expensive pancakes will cost about 12 Euro. The interior is rustic in style and on warm days you can sit on the terrace outside. On the day of our visit it was not easy to find a free table, luckily our friends had booked it in advance. I've read the opinions that it's the best pancake place in the Netherlands. I can't confirm it because I didn't try other places, but I must say I was really satisfied with my dish of sweet pancakes.

    North Holland, Schagen - De Posthoorn: dining at the main square

    by vtveen Updated May 3, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Schagen has a remarkable number of restaurants and it was quite difficult for us to decide wher to have our diner the second day of our short visit. Although not our first choice (which was Grand Café 1741, closed for a private function) we ended up in Restaurant De Posthoorn, almost next to our hotel Igesz.

    De Posthoorn is located in one of the older buildings of the city along the main square; it is family owned since 1912. We were seated by the friendly staff in the conservatory with great views of the Markt.

    Being so close to the North Sea we opted for one of the fish dishes of the menu: fillet of cod with a very tasteful mustard sauce. The fish was served with various potatoes and vegetables. We finished our diner with a (strong) cappuccino, still overlooking the main square and enjoying the coming and going locals.

    De Posthoorn offers good honest food for an affordable price (our main course was just € 16.50 pp).

    Of course, I'm kidding. It's because I cannot remember any place where we had some food.. But.. to tell you the truth.. original Dutch food was much too greasy for me..

    Favorite Dish: that fish wanted to swallow my fingers! They were jumping up! Now I'm not kidding.

  • French Fries Are For The Dutch Too!

    by Dunlop Written Feb 9, 2004

    The resturant we went to was your average simple diner that was famous for there fries, which were amazing! The only thing you may find odd about french fries in Holland: ketchup just isnt good enough, you must ask for it and be prepared for a funny reaction, because most dutch people prefer mayo. (As do I!)

    Favorite Dish: Favorite dish, aside to the amazing fries, cheese and tea are both very traditional dutch snacks. Cheese and tea apparently go good after every meal, whether your dining in or out, its what you are served whether you like it or not. But its a good thing I do or else I would have been in trouble.
