Sharyfah Bhageloe’s love for Rotterdam, the city she was born and raised in, is undeniably strong. So strong that despite having studied in Leuven, she found herself back where she grew up after completing her studies. As the editor-in-chief of Vers Beton, a magazine dedicated to telling stories of a quirky and honest Rotterdam, she creatively utilises her affection for the harbour city. Sharyfah enthusiastically leads us to various lively food spots around Rotterdam in a News From Home feature for Extra Extra no. 21, not forgetting to include something else she loves dearly: Surinamese food.
