Hotspots Rotterdam – Where to eat in Rotterdam

Hotspots Rotterdam – Where to eat in Rotterdam

Rotterdam, the place for street food, special beers, cool breakfast tents, social places and especially lots of hip things. Plenty of choice in the always bustling Rotterdam. Foedsie also went on a voyage of discovery to the best hotspots in Rotterdam.

Little V

Little V already stole my heart in The Hague a few years ago and I still love it. So also in Rotterdam I had to and would go to Little V. This is the place to eat delicious Vietnamese food. And I love Vietnamese food. From street snacks to complete menus, the Little V menu is packed with tasty dishes. We opted for the 2-course menu, where you get everything from it and it was really divine. Whether you are inside or on the terrace, the atmosphere is really great. Highly recommended.

On the advice of a colleague, we opted for the highest level of breakfast. Literally! Because on the roof of an old building you might find the tastiest breakfasts in Rotterdam with the matching name “On the roof”. From 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. you can order a breakfast deal here with fresh yogurt and delicious sandwiches. But you can also order breakfast or lunch from the menu. I opted for the avocado cheese Brekkie (tasty !!!) and Leroy for the Bavette. Belly full? Then you can only come here to drink a good cup of coffee, because only a visit to the roof is worth it.


If you like good Mexican food, you have to go to Kua. At KUA you can eat delicious traditional Mexican food. They serve dishes such as ceviche, mole and arrachera. But also the best tacos.

Student hotel

Are you looking for a nice place to spend the night, but you would rather not lose a rib, then the Student Hotel is highly recommended. It is one of the cheapest options to spend the night and also super fun. The rooms may be small and simple, but everything is neat, clean and super hip. In addition, the hotel has a nice restaurant where you can go for a snack or a drink, a playroom (table football, dartboard, PS4 etc.), fitness room and work spaces. Oh and on the weekend you can park for free nearby. Big tip!


In a cozy square in the heart of Rotterdam you will find Bokaal, a lively city café and beer room. Coziness is central here and you can taste it right away. The beer list is huge. The people at Bokaal are happy to help you, they really start a conversation with you and look for a beer that suits you. With a few special beers and a delicious Burgundian board, this was a very nice place to start our evening.

Bokaal Rotterdam hotspot


You guessed it, even more beer! Well, a weekend trip to Rotterdam with friends is not possible without a few special beers. To conclude, we opted for Proeflokaal Reijngoud. And with 26 beers on tap and more than 200 bottles, you’ve come to the right place for a good glass of beer. A no-nonsense, real Rotterdam beer café.


As a bit of a food addict, I couldn’t resist walking into the market halls of Rotterdam. And then I ran into Madame Cocos. You can get really delicious fresh (often still warm) coconut balls here. If you want to try something different, choose the ginger or pepper flavor. Is this something crazy? No worries! You also have regular coconut balls or with chocolate.

Het Kroketloket

In the mood for a quick bite, the croquettes of the Kroketloket are also always a good idea.

Unfortunately we were only in Rotterdam for a day, so we still have not been able to discover much of all the great hotspots in Rotterdam. Other tips for hotspots, but which unfortunately we didn’t have time for, are Supermercado, Boca’s, Picnic, Parqiet, De viskantine, Coffeelicious and much more. W
