Erwtensoep is a thick pea and smoked sausage soup, which is often served with rye bread and slices of ham.

This photo really does not do justice to the delight that is Erwtensoep. I love soup. I especially love hearty, comfort soup. I also love being in a foreign country, looking for lunch, walking by tables of people who look like they’re enjoying their food and then going up to the waitress and ordering the same with a point and a smile. (Although this little game isn’t as fun in Amsterdam because everyone speaks English.)

It was such a fun lunch. Yummy soup, wooden benches, a bunch of Sydney-sider strangers en-route to Copenhagen for company, Noordermarkt and a chef who kept on singing a made-up song about SOUPIE!  Erwtensoep makes me happy.
