Vishandel Visser @ Amsterdam


One of our favourite meals in Amsterdam came from this street stall that features fish of various fins for convenient snacks.


The main attraction here: "broodje harring," the raw herring sandwich.


Looks slimy and unappetising but tastes amazing. Super-fresh fish with pickles and onions.


Smoked herring sandwich. Not as moist and juicy as the raw one, naturally.


Shrimp, stuffed to savoury succulence. Sensational.


Eel sandwich. Lusciously creamy; not a Filet-O-Fish for sure.


Warm, tender chunks of unidentifiable fish, encased in light, crisp batter that isn't greasy in the slightest.


Vishandel Visser,
Amsterdam.

  1. Ohhh you remind me of my Europe trip. Was having the same thing! Ok not all the fish sandwiches but definitely had the pickled herring, the raw ones where the fish was gutted on the spot, sprinkled with onions, etc and was told to eat it as it is!
    Like u said, yummy! :)
