While at it, a Bapao is also nice (but of Chinese origin, "ba" means "meat" and "pao" means "bread"). Rather then rice this is a bread filled with minced meat and also steamed. Though other fillings are also possible (peanuts, vegetables etc.). 300px-Broodje_Bapao_Driekwart.jpg

I think those are called hombow here in the states, or just steam buns. pretty good. What's also delicious is Banh Mi or Vietnamese Sandwiches.

The classic is with bbq pork but you can get chicken, tofu and others. I've gotten one with fried eggs, still runny. It was a mess, a delicious mess. They're about the cheapest sandwich I know of 1.50-2.50 $US, and they're a good portion too.

Also, I can't believe the Dutch are deprived of the joys of burritos. Not even a Taco Bell in your country?

I wish the wiki / internetz would give me the chinese characters for it, that generally makes it easier as you can mention the "correct name" plus any spelling varients or even different names (such as literal, loose or made up translations/names).

Looks yummie!

I don't think we have Taco Bell here. Never seen one in my life (not elsewhere in the EU either or when I was in Australia and New Zealand). As far as I know mexican food isn't really wide spread. You might find some restaurants or snack/fastfood outlets that serve mexican food, spanish/mexican food (for those that go hybrid and take the best of both world, like hybrid "indonesian-chinese" resaurants), spanish food, argentinian food etc.

Food from just acroos the european border seems more popular: food dishes brought here by immigrants from Marroco, Turkey and such. They gave us the Dönner kebab, turkish pizza (pizza/pancale roll/wrap) and Shoarma (Shawarma) etc.

It definitely is popular with the youth when they have gone drinking and are looking for some food in the middle of the night.

As far as fastfood joints go: We ave MacD, BurgerKing, Pizzahut and apparantly a handfull (large cities only) of Subways, and one Starbucks (behind the passport/customs check on Schiphol airport, Amsterdam).
