We are lucky with this place almost around the corner. Owned and operated bij a couple for over 20 years. Very very hospitable, nice traditional Turkish dishes for a good price. It is very popular, so getting a table can be difficult (there is a nice bar across the street if you have to wait a bit)

Unmissable landmark and food heaven. For the daring and adventurous: we love to get a 'broodje haring' at one of the fish stalls. It has a good selection of meats and sweets.

This small brewery makes some of Rotterdams most popular beers. The entrance is somewhat hidden, since the building is in a courtyard. It has a lot of atmosphere. Even if you don't visit the brewery: ask for this beer when you are in a bar/pub. It will not disappoint.

Competing with the vibe of the Witte de With is this street: but on a not so large scale (the street where all the record shops are). A few spots worth checking out are: Rotown, a Rotterdam staple catering to the music scenesters as the place also hosts live music. Next to is the Stalles Cafe also known to kick out the jams on any given night. A few steps down the way is also Cafe Boudewijn, specializing in Belgian and Dutch Beers. If you’re into beer this place is a must visit.

Shopping
Visit the market on Tuesday or Saturday to see the real diversity of Rotterdam. It can get very busy, but is a great spot to see Rotterdamers do their grocery and other shopping. We love to eat the 'kibbeling' (fried & battered fish) as a quick lunch.

This shop almost always has something special. Be prepared to spend money if you go here. What’s great about it is that you can listen to records before you buy them. I highly recommend this one of you’re serious about music outside of the typical new release stuff. Specialties: used vinyl, jazz, african and world music, new wave and prog rock.
