Ever had a pannekoeken? Me neither.
As much as I’ve wanted to visit Calgary’s infamous Pfanntastic Pannenkoek Haus, I’ve just never made it. So, when we were in Edmonton for Pride a couple weekends back, Siddall was in charge of breakfast and we Google-mapped our way to DeDutch.
DeDutch has a very modern, clean-lined look to it. Also very clean, with very courteous, attentive staff.
Obviously one doesn’t visit a pannekoek joint without partaking in a little, well bit, pannekoek so of course that’s what the team went with. The pannekoek is a Dutch pancake, a little bigger in diameter than the average dinner plate, and a little thicker than a crepe, but with that tasty crepe eggy flavour.
I went with the abby perogie, complete with DeBakon (DeDutch’s Dutch, obvs, style bacon), hash browns and onion cooked inside, and topped with cheddar and sour cream.
This was a win. Not just because it had bacon, and cheese and potato, but because it was well cooked, hot off the grill and overall delish. And it’s big, like wow. DeDutch recommends rolling and eating your pannekoek, but I couldn’t even get through half. Made for a great next day breakfast as well though. (Yu had this bad boy as well)
Siddall went with the apple and onion, dusted with cinnamon and served with bakon. She ate her pannekoek the traditional way, and had no trouble polishing it off.
Norman went with the rio grande complete with onions and green peppers cooked inside and topped with cheddar, salsa and sour cream.
Overall, it was a great end to our #YEGPride weekend and we’ll keep it on the list for when we’re hanging out in the provincial capital.
