Amsterdam street food delicacy: Herring

Without a doubt, the Dutch street food most frowned upon by tourists, expats, and immigrants, is herring. Squeamish tourists often assume the fish is eaten raw, but that is not the case.

Herring is the Netherland’s national snack: If you’ve never tasted fresh herring you don’t know what you’re missing.

You’ll have plenty of opportunity to eat this Amsterdam street food delicacy. The 2019 Hollandse Nieuwe — ‘New Herring’ — season started on June 12. They are especially tasty this year!
