/ck/, I'm going on a trip to the two aforementioned places in summer (specifically, Dusseldorf and Cologne in Germany and Amsterdam/Utrecht area in the Netherlands), so I'd like your best suggestions for what local specialties I should try there.

Currywurst was one of the obvious choices to shortlist, but still, thanks.
>>12328522
This looks really interesting but also like something that'd be more of a home cooking thing rather than served at a food place. I assume I'm mistaken and they do in fact serve this?
>>12328590
>patat oorlog
This looks like that poutine thing but with onions instead of cheese and more different sauces, seems cool.
>frikandel
Reminds me of lyulya kebab or cevapcici, but deep-fried rather than grilled.

I was recently in the Netherlands and Germany (Amsterdam Zwolle and Berlin).

In the Netherlands you should try:

Poffertjes, which are like tiny pancakes freshly made and covered in really good butter
ALL THE CHEESE
Herring

In Germany the only good thing was the kebab desu, Currywurst literally is just sausage covered in ketchup with curry powder

Maybe if you can get a Schnitzel

>>12328476
dutch food aside from dairy and pastries is kind of trash. maatjes is nice though.

Thanks for all of the responses guys, I feel like I'm starting to get an idea of what to try.
Feel like I'm going to be missing out on a pretty substantial part of the experience since I don't drink beer, though.
>>12329036
That looks fucking great.
>>12329056
Now I'm no expert but I'm pretty sure that's chinese.
>>12329245
Well that's simple and straightforward. Probably tastes alright though.
>>12329251
Was planning on it, yeah.
>>12329323
You're trying to get me lynched by the locals aren't you.
>>12329449
Poffertjes sound pretty sweet.
>>12329469
The thread makes me believe otherwise, considering the majority of the food named so far has been Dutch and not German.

Horse is a staple where I'm from so it's not much of a novelty to me.

Amsterdam: Smoked eel at certain fishmongers in Amsterdam. You pay the price but it is one of the most underrated Dutch foods out there. Very delicate flavour, but as I mentioned, relatively pricey

Otherwise you could try kibbeling, which is fried cod. It's okay, it's a staple. Try herring if you don't plan on visiting the Red Light District.

Lastly try some Surinamese food. Get a plate of roti curry chicken, will cost you around eight euros. Specifically try the one at the Waterloo metro station. Favourite food in Amsterdam. Watch out with the sambal.

When in Düsseldorf go there http://schweinejanes.juisyfood.com/ and order "Ein Schweinebrötchen mit extra Kruste" (one pig roll with extra crust". When in Düsseldorf, drink "Alt" beer, when in Köln, drink "Kölsch" beer. When you fancy some sweet food you should check out the chocolate museum in Köln.

North Rhine-Westfalia native here, born in the Ruhr area but studied in Düsseldorf. If you're around, I highly suggest you visit the old town of Düsseldorf and their Altbier breweries (Schlüssel Brewery, Füchsen Brewery, Uerige Brewery, Schuhmacher Brewery and Kürzer Brewery) and spend some time along the banks of the Rhine river.

Local food is great in the breweries and so is the local beer. Altbier, which literally translates to old (style) beer, is somewhat related to English ale and imho tastes a lot better than pilsner style beer. Just look up the different breweries on yelp or tripadvisor and you're good to go. If you need to know anything else about Düsseldorf or the surrounding area, just hmu

in cologne you can eat at a "brauhaus" a brewery with included restaurant where you can eat fat but tasty food and drink the beer. its pretty common that waiters there react rude if you order another drink than beer but dont take it personal its part of the culture.
Also you can eat Mettbrötchen, pic related
