Pannenkoeken - Crêpes

In the north part of Belgium, the Flemish speaking part, pancakes are called 'pannenkoeken', in Brussels and the south of Belgium they are called crêpes, in French. Al over the country pannenkoeken or crêpes are mostly eaten as an afternoon snack. Traditionally they are served with syrup or brown sugar, sometimes ice cream is added. There are specialized tearooms that serve them all day long.  


So next time when you visit Belgium and you have a afternoon hunger? step into one of the many pancakehouses. It is needless to say that 'pannenkoeken' is the number one treat at children's party's, that together with Brussels waffles.
