The Pannekoeken that I had the pleasure of trying was a savory version. Can't remember the name, but it had asparagus and pancetta and was so amazing! Haven't tried the Southsider Bloody Mary. I think I had the Stinking Rose! Garlic, Garlic and more Garlic...yummmm!
Hmmmm...Tiramisu. That may have to be an upcoming blog post!
