kip has nothing to do with kippers. I would have received chicken instead of Herring.
|Kip says: Did you just call me Herring?|
but to hear a Dutch waiter pronounce it is a hoot ;-)
I order a Schnitzel met gebakken champignon, ui, spek, frites en salade (breaded pork cutlet with baked mushrooms, onions, bacon, fries & salad. At least here they don't subscribe to that brain-dead Fries OR Salad, but I used Google Translate to make sure of that (see EN/OF above).
|A Boer-Schnitzel. Mine looked similar to that. Healthy? (not my pic; not my schnitzel)|
The Schnitzel arrives, and I actually get what I thought I ordered! At first I thought that I got the salad dressing in a separate little pot, but upon encountering whitish stuff in the salad I realize that this is the mayonnaise for the fries. No ketchup. This is Holland ;-)
It all tastes good but after finishing the meat and the salad, I let most of the fries go bad, because the portion is too much for me (Is it time for senior's portions?).
