If you are transiting in Amsterdam for an onward flight to or from the New World, the new transit area is a comfortable place to lounge around in during the layover of a few hours.
Apart from the regular shopping for shopaholics , there is a delightful new restaurant offering a taste of Holland.
Of course the potato chips ( French fries) that accompanied the chunks of crisply fried kibbeling are not a patch on the ones you get on the street , particularly off Dam Square, but nonetheless they are well worth an eat.
Also one of my favourites are the min pancakes which look a bit like idli dusted with powdered sugar
Of course I forgot to mention the Dutch Apple pie which is quite unlike any other – with its soft crumbly crust covering a crunchy Apple filling and topped with a generous helping of soft, whipped cream.
Now isn’t that worth spending some time at Schiphol airport ?
