We had reserved for six and received a large table with a view to the main historic square in Purmerend, the Cow Market. Bread and mayonesa de ajo were brought immediately to the table. Nice.
The menu on the wall and on their website are just full of ortographic mistakes and misplaced number/gender combinations (quesedilla instead of quesadilla, panqueqe instead of panqueque, caipirinia instead of caipirinha, salade instead of ensalada, champinoñes insteado of champiñones, nachos fria instead of nachos frios, etc.). But I am picky, I know - the rest of the group didn't noticed that or was bothered at all.
There were two girls behind the bar and
rème brûlée with cinnamon powder on top than... crema catalana.
While most South Americans and Spanish prefer to have something light as fruit for dessert and leave the sweet pastries and pies for another time the Dutch only have a warm meal once a day - and then eating out means they OUGHT to have a dessert or "toetje". Generally at Dutch restaurants serving Spanish food I do not see on menus - excepting la crema catalana - genuine Spanish desserts such as flan, buñelo, rice pudding or turrón. Or drinks such as horchata (popular in Spain and Mexico too). Well, I am not so sure the Dutch would like to enjoy a rice pudding or some horchata - rice is just not their thing. However, I think they would love something as simple as coffee with turrones. Apparently, they will have to go to Spain to have them.
