A while ago a lovely family in Santiago de Chile introduced me to a sandwich called ‘choripan’. A spicy sausage prepared on a smoky barbecue served on a crispy bun. I was hooked just by the smell of it. After crossing the border to Argentina it only got better, more barbecues, more smoke and more meat.
Now you might wonder what this piece of storytelling has to do with Grillig. A lot. Grillig is a brand new restaurant located at the Nieuwe Binnenweg, a street already loaded with cool spots. Grillig serves a variety of different sandwiches filled with different kinds of meat all straight from the barbecue, which is located in the middle of the restaurant. Choose from fish/meat or veggie, a type of sandwich and add some sauces and toppings. Now sit down and admire the chef doing his job. In no time you will be looking at a delicious sandwich filled with good stuff accompanied with some homemade fries. Not into a sandwich? They now also serve complete meals.
Since the place just opened I can’t call it one of my regular spots yet, it will become one for sure. Grillig has a good atmosphere, friendly staff and tasty food. Recently The Esquire also listed them as one of the new spots in Rotterdam you have to visit.
Head into, what a good friend likes to call, the real part of Rotterdam. Don’t get distracted by the OQ located around the corner, go straight to Grillig.
