De Carrousel, Amsterdam
This is a round pancake house with many of the trappings of a merry-go-round. Even though the decor seems to make it good for kids, I didn't see any when I visited. The pancakes are good and it won't break the bank. I would tend to class it more as typical than wonderful, but just the different style was a treat. The pancakes are thinner than what I'm used to and they give you more toppings.
Favorite Dish: Pancakes. I had the ones with bacon and cheese, which were good. You can get a partial look at them in the picture. Miyuki had the mixed fruit, which she loved and is better shown. You can see the amount of toppings that are ladled on.
Personally, I liked the mediocre, minimal, service, which I found to be a welcome respite from the more touristy areas.
