Delicious herring in Amsterdam

Famous Dutch brined herring is delicious if you like seafood. It is raw herring from the North Sea catches end of spring. The herring has been cleaned, the head is removed and it is conserved in a special way with salt. The "Hollandse Nieuwe" is typically eaten with raw onions and pickles. The Dutch way of eating it: first picking it up by the tail and then letting it slide into your mouth gradually.
Or eat your herring on a sandwich, it's called a "Broodje Haring", meaning "Herring Sandwich". All these fine fish delicacies can be bought at an Dutch street-side herring fish stall. You can get it just around everywhere in Amsterdam. But you will have more selection if you go to Albert Cuyp market.

Taste:9/10(Delicious. The fish is soft and the saltiness is just nice. Great taste when mixed with onion and pickles).
Price:6/10(Moderate. The meal will only cost you around 3 Euros).
