    The smallest places can often have the best cuisine. In this cafe/restaurant many delicious (Belgium) meals are served. The waiters love their meals and can tell you with passion which meal they prefer.

    De Walvisch Restaurant & Drinkpan: De Walvisch (does not exist anymore - 2004)

    ROTTERDAM DE WALVISCH CROCODILE FILLET

    13/3/2003
    My visit to De Walvisch.
    French cuisine with a touch of South African specialities.
    A "drinkpan" is South-African for "pub".

    I'm not too enthousiastic about this restaurant.
    The restaurant itself is very nice, chairs are comfortable, staff is kind.
    Food presentation is very well done if not to say spectacular at times.
    But the taste is bland, the sauces don't fit with the dish. I wrote my findings just a few hours after having eaten there and I couldn't even remember everything I had. That is not a good sign.
    So if De Walvisch wants to get a good name, they should definitely do something about the taste of the food. Even though some combinations are unusual, I really don't get the point.
    Oh... I must say all meat and fish were perfectly prepared. Juicy, not overcooked. Nothing wrong with that. Just not tasty.

    Favorite Dish: Opened Tuesday thru Saturday from 16.00 hrs. Kitchen open from 18-22 hrs.

    The crème brulée (5 mini's puddings each with a different flavour) is heavenly.

    We spent € 70 per person for a four course meal, wine, mineral water, drinks before dinner and coffee. Rather steep, I thought.

    The picture of crocodile fillet with gamba is not sharp but I had no better.

    Van Popering: Van Popering, Belgian cuisine

    ROTTERDAM RESTAURANT VAN POPERING

    One of my favourites. Busy little restaurant that easily does 2 sittings on an evening so don't expect you can have your table all night if you don't reserve early.

    Fa. Leendert & Zn (see further on) and pub restaurant ----- is owned by the same firm.

    Favorite Dish: Everything actually. The food is Belgian, lovely big fries, roast ham or oysters and lovely puds. Very informal atmosphere. This clever little restaurant has two sittings per evening and is always fully booked. Lovely lovely

    ROTTERDAM RESTAURANT HET GELAGH

    Owned by Popering (see other restaurant tip), just across the street.

    Favorite Dish: Pub and restaurant. Small, dark and very cosy. Good Belgian food. Crème brulée is to die for. If you feel like a fancy bottle of wine (a Sauternes in our case), they just pop over to Popering to get it for you.

    Warung Mini: Warung Mini, Surinamese restaurant

    ROTTERDAM RESTAURANT WARUNG MINI

    In my opinion the best Surinamese eating-place in Rotterdam. The Surinamese kitchen has Hindustani, Indonesian and Creole influences. All dishes (roti, nasi goreng etc.) are good. But the sauto is the best!

    Favorite Dish: Sauto soup, a huge bowl filled to the brim with chicken broth, bean sprouts, chicken meat, a boiled egg and other tasty stuff, with a bowl of rice and hot sauces (sambal) on the side. Very cheap and very satisfying.

    Hung Kee: Family Cantonese and Indonesian Dining

    by Rixie Written Sep 15, 2002

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a simple little basement restaurant that serves enormous servings of Cantonese and Indonesian food. Good food at reasonable prices, friendly service. A lot of local Chinese families seem to eat here -- which, to me, is a good recommendation in itself.

    Favorite Dish: I had the bami, similar to what we in the U.S. call chow mein, only a thinner noodle. I was served a big plate of noodles with thin slivers of pork and vegetables. At that point, I was footsore from walking all day, and famished. The bami was just what I needed: tasty, hearty comfort food. Others in my party had char siu (barbecued pork), soyu chicken, and vegetarian gado-gado, which they liked.

    Bazar

    Bazar is an arabic restaurant with all kinds of exotic meals. Very nice decoration. Be prepared to wait for a long time at the bar because of its huge popularity.
