"Just off the main road are..." Fish Market Tip by funkymama

Fish Market, Oostende: 6 reviews and 5 photos


Favorite thing: Just off the main road are numerous fish stands where the hungry visitor can find every possible fish preparation (mussels, crab meat, young herring -'maatjesharing' - and others) to eat while continuing his stroll alongside the quay until the beach. Almost halfway to the beach is a smaller fish market - the 'Vistrap'- where larger specimen can be bought (mainly sole, plaice, shrimps).
Some typical Belgian fish dishes are: 'Sole à l'Ostendaise' (sole with a white wine sauce and shrimps), 'Tomate Crevette' (a tomato filled with shrimps), 'Paling in 't groen' (eel in green sauce prepared with parsil, spinach and other green herbs).

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
