Try some fish on the Visserskaai of Oostende

The fishers’ cay in Oostende “Visserskaai” is where some of the fisher boats arrive with their daily catch. You have an area were fresh fish directly from the sea is sold to the public but for people who are hungry, there are also fish stands who sell ready to eat products like escargot, mixed cold and smoked fish, shrimps… By the way, one of the specialities is dried fish as you see on the fist picture. It is something else than a burger or French fries.

De Visserskaai in Oostende is waar sommige vissersboten aankomen met hun dagelijkse vangst. Er is een marktje waar dagverse vis rechtstreeks wordt verkocht aan het publiek. Voor mensen die honger hebben kan je ook iets eten aan een kraampje. Deze verkopen escargots, koude en gerookte vissoorten, garnalen... Tussen haakjes, één van de specialiteiten is gedroogde vis zoals je op de eerste foto ziet. Het is toch iets anders dan een hamburger en frietjes..

  2. I love love love love love sea foods! This place sure looks great for me! haha

    Here we also have dried fish, but the most popular one is the salted fish or the local calls it 'ikan masin' (direct translation 'ikan' = fish, 'masin' = salty).

  9. The 2nd, 3rd, and 4th pictures of seafood look appetizing, but not so much the first. It kind of reminds me of my grandmother who used to dry fish outside her apartment window.

  10. I mistook the dried fish for tattered cloth and was intently examining the"frays" before I read the blog! Why is it that I'm always hungry after reading one of your food posts?
