After our afternoon boat tour, we were all getting hungry. We were in the mood for Dutch "junk food" so looked for a Snack Bar. We found the FOODMASTER in the town of Alblasserdam, not far from Kinderdijk. I had two krokets (E1.25) Hans had kipsate' (E4.25) and we shared frites oorlog (E2.40) (fries with mayonnaise and peanut butter sauce - sounds awful - tastes yummy).
As we had to wait half an hour until the next tour boat, we ( Hans & I, Jean & Nel), decided to sit on the terrace of the KANTINE DE MOLENHOEK and have a cup of coffee. We could relax and enjoy the lovely view of the famous windmills.
Soon, the boat arrived to take us on a tour of the canal, where all the windmills were.
De Klok is a function room and pub with pool tables. Reverted from a primary school which was located there first in 1875.
I had a meeting here with what we call a 'coffeetable', meaning a meal with soup, bread and a 'kroket' (see in my Dutch local customs tips).
Nothing special, just a deskfront serving burgers, pasty, ice-creams (quick snacks basically) for the tourists topped with drinks under the same roof with the local souvenier shop. I would advice walking about 200metres out of Kinderdijk to get a better lunch.
We missed the boat literally by 20 seconds, so decided to have a cuppa tea instead whilst we were waiting for her return. Staff was very friendly and entertaining.
