From next August I should be spending 6 months studying in Rotterdam and was interested if anyone had any recommendations for where to eat out and where best to buy everyday food. Do you think it will be easy enough to get by with English and German?

Any other recommendations of what is good to do and see in Rotterdam/ Netherlands are welcome :D

In Rotterdam is a nice vegetarian Chinees http://www.deoudeplek.nl/ and for vegans they have many options and also they made egg free mie for you.
There is a falafel Maoz in the middle of the citty its ok.
But there is a heath food market with a vegetarian(almost vegan) buffet restaurant Spirit http://www.degroenepassage.nl/openingstijden.php . The health food market(organic) do have good vegan options.
Also on one of the small island there is a squaters place and they do have sunday's vegan dinner for alsmost nothing. http://www.poortgebouw.nl/eetcafe.htm
Also I found on the internet this place http://www.hetlachendevarken.nl/ I don't know how it is. But the do have vegan evenings on the second and forth wednesday evening of every month. You have to be member (€ 5,- a year).
The Haque is close to Rotterdam, around 20 minutes by train and there we have a good squaters place Water& Brood. The are open from thursday till saterday and all vegan. And don't forget to go to Baklust www.baklust.nl , that's a lunch restaurant good vegan options to. These two places are together my most favoriete places :D :D

A few weeks ago John did a post for Amsterdam. Amsterdam is around 1 hour by train and very nice to go.
