Well, the trip is drawing to a close, which means that this is my last taste of international McDonald’s weirdness.
Apple pie purists would probably scoff at it, but the pie at a cafe called Winkel 43 in Amsterdam is pretty damn good.
When you’re traveling on a budget, there’s nothing more satisfying than finding a cheap meal that’s actually good. A great example of this? A delightfully affordable pie shop in Edinburgh called Piemaker.
There are a lot of traditional British foods that you can very easily find back home — meat pies? All over the place. Fish and chips? Yep, they’re everywhere. But the type of eels that they serve in really traditional pie shops in London? I don’t think I’ve ever seen those back home.
Thanksgiving was last week, and thankfully there’s one Canadian pub in town that saved me from going sad and turkeyless (and considering that it’s called the Maple Leaf and it’s absolutely festooned with Canadian flags, there’s no mistaking it for anything but a Canadian pub).
