Dutch friends told us about "5 Flies", which I can't remember the translation to Dutch. It was a unique experience in terms of the dishes
to choose from--all were unfamiliar to me, but I enjoyed the experience and was glad we went there.
Cobra Café, in the Museumplein area proved a pleasant surprise: my choice of chicken on a bun, with chips proved a winner: crispy, tender, yummy, and very reasonable. When I asked how they got the coating so
crisp they told me it was purchased that way, and they simply deep fried it.
Hotel Food in Doubltree Hilton, Centraal Station was also a pleasant surprise. Great value and quality in the 35 Euro, 3 course special, which included every item on their regular menu, including a superb lobster thermador. Don't miss the rhubarb crepe dessert!
