This is the place if you are looking for local food. We were a bit skeptic at first given almost all the food looks raw at girst glance except the fried cod. However once you take the first bit you will soon realize you made a good choice. Definately go for the fried cod fish, we also tried the salted herring and salmon, which were exteremely good.
You should definately check the place out if you opt for local food at decent price.

Every body told you have try the hearing then we choose this place but chance. We were walking and just we did it.

We had hearing with pickles and onion. It was ok, little bit oily. The combination of flavors is interesting.

It is street food and you have other fish options

This Dutch delicacy came with herring, pickle and onion which is a perfect combination altogether! Similar to the sashimi which we ate at the Japanese Restaurant except that we don't eat it with wasabi. Good try and we did ask for extra pickle.

Take away stall offering an outstanding fresh fish with a street food mode.
Really good fresh herring sandwich with pickled cucumber and white onion.

It's located half way between Damm Square and the Museums' area. Perfect for a quick snack!

Tried this purely as a tourist ‘tick in the box’ but the €3.50 fresh herring/pickle/onion combination was delicious! The herring melted in the mouth. Perfect.
