The Deliplein at Katendrecht has a somewhat rough sailor history, but nowadays it is a true culinary walhalla. Time for a list with five hotspots that, in random order, show the diversity of the Deliplein!
Lilith Coffee (Delistraat 24B)
You’re not really a morning person but breakfast is your favorite meal of the day? Then Lilith is the place for you to visit, because you can have your breakfast here all day long. Many people actually do this, and that’s why Lilith Coffee opened its second location on the Deliplein past December. Whether you start or end your day here, a stack of those fluffy banana pancakes or a healthy açaí bowl is always a good idea!
De Matroos en het Meisje (Delistraat 52)
Do you like to be surprised? Then have a seat at the table at De Matroos en het Meisje. This is where you eat potluck! The chef only works with seasonal products, so you are sure all the food on your plate is fresh. The Delfts blue on the wall and paintings of old ships give the restaurant a typical Dutch touch and really fits the historical shipping characher of Katendrecht!
Ceviche y Maas (Delistraat 2)
This Peruvian restaurant is the right place to visit if you want to eat some ceviche, the national fish dish of Peru. And while you’re here make sure to order a pisco sour too, one of the favorite cocktails of our editor Rens, who had the honour to try this drink at Ceviche y Maas. Not only the food, but also the interior – with the blue and white tiles – make sure you feel like you’re in South America for a moment!
De Zeeuwse Meisjes (Sumatraweg 13)
This cozy café-shop is started by two ladies from Zeeland (a Dutch provence) who came to Rotterdam to try their luck. In the shop you’ll find vintage, design and many products from young entrepreneurs, who get the chance to show their products to the public here. Upstairs you can quietly drink your latte XL while enjoying a sweet Zeeuwse bolus!
Deli Bird (Delistraat 44A & 46C)
Also lovers of the authentic Thai kitchen are in the right place at Deliplein, where Deli Bird brings a little bit of every day life from Thailand to Rotterdam. With an abundance of ingredients and spices a huge amount of Eastern taste sensations are created here. Enjoy tasty noodle dishes, mild curries and spicy wok dishes! Also good to know: take away is also available!
