Today let me tell you about a dimsun restaurant that MK and I discovered in Rotterdam while we were dying of hunger at 1.30PM. I didn’t have a solid dinner that night before and MK woke up late today so we weren’t able to have a meal a home.
From Beurs we walked to the direction of V&D looking for a affordable restaurant where we can stuff our silly without spending too much. We initially plan to eat at Sumo in Kruisplein but decided against it after some thought.
5 Sticks on Fire, EUR9,95
Our hungry stomachs led us to a small Japanese-Chinese restaurant in red called Dim Daily. The inside is small, only four rectangular tables that can sit at least 4 people, another rectangular table near the window and 4 two-seater tables near the food counter. The bare, red walls and big, clear windows gives the restaurant an impression of space and life.
Yakitori Kip met Saus, EUR3,55
Ok enough of the boring description. Let’s talk about the food, the menu that can be summarized in two words, delicious and affordable. You can have a full lunch meal for only EUR9,90 and a dinner set for EUR14,50. You might think that the taste is only what is the price is worth but my middle-class tounge can very well attest that you will enjoy this little dinner without being robbed by your hard-earned Dutch euros.
I would not speak anymore and let your eyes savour these pictures that I took before we devour them. Total cost for the lunch (and we took out 6 of those maki because we couldn’t finish them) is EUR31,40 with two bowl of rice, an ice and an appelsap.
Next time you are in Rotterdam and you want to dine cheap but satisfied, visit Dim Daily. It is across Subway and to the left of Vroom and Dreesman (V&D).
