The Fenix Food Factory is a unique dining and drinking experience in Rotterdam.
Inside a bright repurposed warehouse are a variety of craft food vendors. Jordy’s Bakery is open Monday to Saturday from 8:00 to 18:00 and has coffee so you can have an inexpensive breakfast here..
Freshly-baked bread, cheese and sausage look good enough to eat?You can get a ‘Kaasplank’ or cheese plate for €3.75 per person.The cheese plate consists of four yummy cheeses, chutney and bread. You can take your cheese plate into the Kaapse Brewpub, also inside the Fenix Food Factory.
The Kaapse Brewpub served a wide selection of beers, not just their own. Since we were unfamiliar with their beers, they gave us several free tasters to help us decide. The tasters we had were ‘Citra Ass Down‘ from their brewery which we weren’t fond of, ‘Against the Grain‘ from the States (excellent but rather too pricey here in Holland), along with what we ultimately ordered, an ‘Alien Claw‘ for me and a ‘Kaapse Carrie‘ for Al.
This brewpub had a mishmash of seating – we grabbed the comfy couch. Here Al is checking into ‘Untapped’ to rate his beer.
Alien Claw, a Belgian-style IPA from Spain, 6.8% with slight apple overtones.
Kaapse Carrie, a strong IPA 6.5%, brewed right at this pub.
