6 New restaurants in Rotterdam
1. Louise Petit Restaurant
Louise Petit Restaurant is located in a beautiful part of our city: Veerhaven. Here they serve classic French cuisine, with starters such as tartare de salmon (salmon tartare with avocado, horseradish and Granny Smith) and escargots (snails with garlic butter). As a main course you can go for the homemade ratatouille or the Cabillaut avec beurre blanc (cod fish with green asparagus, mashed potatoes and white butter sauce). There are also delicious desserts, side dishes, and a wine list full of choices.
I can’t wait to visit this promising, new hotspot in our city!

According to the Mookata Asian Fondue BBQ & Grill website, Mookata is a combination of Korean BBQ and Chinese hot pot on a barbecue steamboat. The word literally means ‘pork skillet’. On the skillet you can grill meat, and on the side you can cook vegetables in a soup base of your choice. A unique experience that is definitely worth a try!

After five successful years of Bistrot du Bac, Remco and Magdalena van de Lagemaat opened up another restaurant at the Karel Doormanstraat: Osteria Vera.

Wes is the new place to be in Rotterdam Noord! On the corner of Zaagmolenstraat you can immerse yourself in a cinematic interior where you can enjoy dishes with influences from Jewish Persian cuisine at any time of the day. “We draw our inspiration from many different cuisines with a rich culinary history. What we do isn’t authentic, but original,” according to chef Martijn Prins.
At Wes Eettentje you can get a lot of delicious foods, such as savory or sweet pies, salads, bagels, delicious casseroles and much more. It’s the ideal hangout with a living room feeling. Sounds good, right?
