Feeling crabby? 5x Seafood take-aways

Yes, folks, the party is over. Carnival is a wrap. Traditionally, this is the start of Lent, which is ushered in by eating herring on Ash Wednesday. We've listed these excellent seafood spots for those who keep the tradition alive or anyone craving some omega-3 fatty acids.


Super fresh fish right in the center of town. At SeaBas on the Grote Berg, you know your red snapper was still swimming in the North Sea twenty-four hours earlier. Pop in for delicious kibbeling (fried fish) or a cone of calamari. This is also an awesome place for tasty poké bowls and ready-made paella.


A fine combination of the traditional fish stall and culinary fish restaurant is the C Food Bar in Down Town Gourmet Market. Enjoy a fancy drink and treat yourself to the best oysters and finest finger food from the sea.


For delicious fish, fries and salads, go to the Zeester on Kruisstraat. Order your favorite fish mix and sauce to taste, and enjoy at a great price.

Fish market

The market

Simple, tasty and always fun: eating fish at the market is invariably a good idea. For example, on Wednesday morning, when fish stall Van Bakel is located at shopping center Woensel: a household name in Eindhoven for five generations.


At Chajiä at Strijp-S you'll surely catch a tasty fish. A casual (take-away) fish restaurant where the fish 'n chips, poké bowls, greek pitas and sushi burritos are a must-try. Delicious veg options too!

Ps. Feel like grabbing a herring and officially wrapping up Carnival? Head over to café Wilhelmina at Wilhelminaplein this Wednesday afternoon! From about five o'clock the herrings will be on the table.
