Van ‘t Spit – Best roast chicken, fries & veggies

I used to go to rotisserie Van ‘t Spit in Amsterdam, but now we have one in Rotterdam:)

The chicken here is as tasty and juicy as in Amsterdam! Well, what more do I need to say ;).

The concept is simple and the food is good. You choose 1/2 or 1/1 roasted chicken and order some side dishes to share. Everything is homemade, fries, BBQ sauce, spicy Piri Piri sauce, garlic mayonnaise, mango red onions, coleslaw, green salad, sweet potato mash and the corn, except their ketchup.

The interior is simple and cozy with the grill as the center piece. I have great respect for the chefs that they can stand the heat.

You can sit inside or outside and they don’t take reservations. If you have to wait to be seated, just order a drink and enjoy watching the crowd.

They are located in Kralingen (East) on a dike, in a corner building, next to a walled Jewish cemetery (1696 – 1820). Close to cafés, Kitchen in The Student Hotel, Alohabar and Bakkerswinkel.

Van ‘t Spit closes at 01:00, which makes them one of the few places in Rotterdam where you can dine till late.

I like to have a place to go when I don’t feel like cooking and where you can get good value for money, so it’s definitely worth the bike ride (or tram 24 or 7).
