What do the Dutch eat?
What do the Dutch do for leisure?
What does it really mean to be Dutch?
And do the Dutch really smoke weed all day long?

I’ve written about the quirky foods of the Dutch before. But Amsterdam just added a whole new chapter to it.
While temperatures in the city of canals reach record breaking highs and making it the hottest September EVER! – Well, at least in recorded history. –
The capitol city of The Netherlands takes it’s ridiculous (awesome!) food tradition of pulling greasy bar snacks straight from the wall even one step further …
Most likely struck by the extreme heat the good people of the FeBo snackbar (notorious for their ready-to-eat food walls) decided to celebrate their 75 year anniversary by opening a Float In version! (Dutch: “Drijf in”)
That’s right! They opened a waterfront wall stuffed with deep-fried comfort food allowing boats to float by and pull a croquet from the wall without even having to disembark their vessel.
Unfortunately it’s not yet a permanent display. But one thing is for sure. Whether it’s a stroke of genius or just a madman’s dream. Amsterdam just added a new dimension to the term “fast food” and are definitely in the running for the title of “Quirkiest food EVER”!
Well, at least in recorded history.
