Rotterdam is a destination full of restaurants, there are more than a thousand restaurants in which there will also be a great variety in the type of cuisine.
Of course, it is advisable to know that Dutch people don’t use to take breakfast, most of them use to wait until the Lunchtime, for the lunch which is around 12:00 pm and 14:00 pm they usually take something fast, as a bread with butter, cheese, ham, salmon, and everything imaginable over it, but that doesn’t mean that you cant take breakfast.
There are many options for Breakfast and Lunch in the city, our recommendation is Op het Dak.
Open from Wednesday to Sunday, they don’t only offer tasty and creative food, but also the location is perfect, located on the middle of the cosmopolitan city life this restaurant is the biggest harvestable roof of Europe. The plates found on their menu are served from their own garden, from farmers or food markers from the region.
It’s dinner time!
When Dutch people forget to count the calories then is dinner time. Dutch families dinner is taking normally at 18:00 pm. In the restaurants, the kitchen closes around 21:00 pm,
If you are not hungry yet, you can get involved in “after work” atmosphere, Dutch people enjoy going to drink a beer after work. Gezellig!
Our recommendation is going to Witte de Withstraat, here are a variety of snack bars, fast food and boutiques, all in one street. The coolest street for Rotterdam.
The Witte Aap is our first bar on the list, bar calls itself ” the beating heart of Witte de Withstraat” and we can agree with this name. Nice snack bar, open every day until late at night.
