Raw herring is a really popular steet food in Amsterdam and something the locals have enjoyed for over 600 years!
The proximity of Amsterdam to the North Sea makes it a perfect opportunity to try really fresh seafood!
The herring is not technically ‘raw’ but dried in salt to give it a distinct flavour. We tried raw herring in the form of a sandwich at a nearby brown bar.
Also, if you’re hungover, the Dutch recommend it as a hangover remedy too!
