Eat seafood at BistrOcean

Friday - - Travel -

One of the world’s busiest ports, Ham­burg is de­fined by its wa­ter­side lo­ca­tion on the Elbe river. The city side is now dom­i­nated by the flow­ing lines of the im­pos­ing Elbphil­har­monie con­cert hall, but vis­i­tors can also check out a funky light­ship restau­rant, board one of the flotilla of boats that of­fer a fas­ci­nat­ing har­bour tour, or sun­bathe and party at one of the im­promptu sum­mer beaches, such as Strand Pauli. But food­ies and fish lovers in par­tic­u­lar should take the 111 bus to the mod­ern fish mar­ket at Kreuz­fahrt­ter­mi­nal. The mar­ket is only open to pro­fes­sion­als, but around it a host of seafood bistros have sprung up. BistrOcean is a buzzing, chea­pand-cheer­ful fish­mon­gers that crams hun­gry din­ers round rough wooden ta­bles and of­fers plat­ters of smoked salmon, hal­ibut and mack­erel, soused her­rings, grilled sea bass, pol­lack, plump scal­lops or monk­fish.
