Sometimes in between lectures, I need to have a quick snack. And when you are in Amsterdam, you have loads of choices for a quick bite. The other day I went to Toko Joyce, a toko (shop) in the centre of Amsterdam. Their frekedel djagung is described on their menu as a “spicy, vegetarian corn fritter”. After ordering it, they put it in the microwave to heat it up. After it is burning hot, you can take it with you to sit outside near a canal or sit in the toko. I cannot recall if the fritter itself was spicy, because I took every bite with the delicious sambal manis (sweet sambal) with it!
