Noord eetcafe offers a quintessential East Passyunk experience, with its window seating facing the charming Singing Fountain, while providing a cuisine that's hard to come by in Philadelphia: Dutch. Chef Joncarl Lachman, who also owns the Dutch in Pennsport, will likely be in the dining room on the night of your visit, moving from table to table with jokes and recommendations on what's good that night. Sure-bet mainstays on the appetizer menu include the rustic house made bread that's served on the house with butter and garlic before your meal, the bitterballen (Dutch fried pork krokets) and herring broodjes (mini herring sandwiches topped with cucumber and pickled onion on a potato role). When it comes time for your entree, go for the rabbit leg stew, a hearty meal served with smoked sausage, lardons, baby turnips and zuurkool. Don't forget to bring wine—the place is BYOB. A nice robust Malbec pairs particularly well with that aforementioned rabbit stew, FYI.
