We got there at around 9PM and we saw right away that parking is a challenge. The store is along the main road of Xavierville Ave. and is an extension of a house. From outside, you can see that the store space is really small. A stretch of the store's wall has a built-in cushioned chair with tables lined up. The other side of the store had a big picture of Amsterdam with a stretch of a counter-type table and some bar seats.
|Outside the store - you can see the entire space inside! Look at where we parked our vehicle!|

The menu doesn't include much. It has a Dutch theme of finger food (which they call Munchies) that can pass as simple meals (since they also serve rice, ala carte), German sausages, variety of potato sides (categorized as Fillers), bonbons, dips, drinks (read as Swigs in their menu) that includes milkshakes and assorted beer and ofcourse,
For their Munchies, we ordered the following:
|Drunk Dori - 135 php|
|Kroket - 135 php|
For Fillers, we got the following:
|Twisted Fries , small - 45 php|
|Van Marley's Rice - 30 php|
The most exciting part of all are the Dutchkins. These are fluffy Dutch Pancakes with different toppings, covered with powdered sugar - a winter wonderland finish. The baby pancakes were so soft and light that I ended up eating a whole plate. :) We tried two varieties.
|Nutella and Praline Sauce - 130php (14 little pieces)|
|Whipped Berry Mix Cream Cheese - 125 php|
I wish they have a sampler for their Dutchinks so people can try all varieties of toppings in just one order. I would definitely try their Whipped Lemon Cream Cheese Dutchkins next time and a couple of other toppings that were recently added to their Dutchkin Menu. And oh, did I tell you that they can also add a scoop of ice cream to their Dutchkins? You just have to add 12php for that. Would try that as well next time.
