Bij Bos Fish kiosk – Delicious fishy stuff

Bij Bos Fish Kiosk has been at this nice square in Rotterdam since 1990 but underwent a nice change from a stall into this kiosk in 2005 with seating indoors and a nice terrace outside. A fishy place, but in a good way :-).

As it is located in multicultural neighbourhood Old West, you will see all types of people coming here to get their fried fish or bun with raw fish during ‘haring‘ (herring) season. The Heemraadsplein next to it is also a location for (flea)markets and other events. All in all, a great place for people spotting.

This family-run business serves e.g. small fried bits of fish which is called ‘kibbeling’ (see pic), mussels, mackerel, shrimps and calamari rings. There are warm and cold dishes.

I usually get my Saturday lunch here during work, which is a nice, freshly fried ‘lekkerbek’. A lekkerbek means someone who loves food, but in this case it is fried fillet of fish, it’s haddock, hake or whiting in a dough batter and okay, that makes me a ‘lekkerbek’ too.

Some people like to eat the lekkerbek with a bun and/or with sauce but I eat mine just like that. I’m not too keen on the sauces like the garlic or remoulade sauces as I find they’re too sweet for my taste. Drinks are available like beer, wine, lemonade and tea/coffee.

A nice place for a snack or to take home with you or to work.
You can also order by phone and pick it up.
