The Epic Guide to Rotterdam

On a very rainy saturday , Le boyfriend and I went to Rotterdam. 20 bucks and 37 minutes and we were there. To be honest, I don’t think we will be going back anytime soon, at least not without a specific reason. It was kind of depressing to see how empty the (rainy) streets were on the last weekend before Christmas, so we spent our time mostly in cafe’s, restaurants and museums. We actually did quite a lot: 2 coffeebreaks, lunch, dinner, drinks, a little windowshopping (meh), an exposition called The Road to Van Eyck (meh), one about architect Louis Kahn (great stuff) and we visited the Sonneveld house.

Drink, Eat, London

Dishoom

Welcome to Dishoom, A Bombay style cafe in London with a nostalgic wink to the early 20th century. No noisy, sticky or smelly scenes here though, but rather a sleek London version of what you dream  Mumbai would have been like back in the day.

I have to say I am not a big fan of Indian food (too many bad memories from our trip in India), but I would definitely visit Dishoom again, if only for the decor, atmosphere and great cocktails. Others that can appreciate the food have shown some love for the food as well though, as you can see here. Read more ›

Barcelona, Drink, Eat

Boca Chica / Boca Grande

BocaChicaBocaGrande14

We were so happy to discover Boca Chica/ Boca Grande on our trip to Barcelona in november of 2011. This then new bar and restaurant, just off Passeig de Gracia, simply oozed brilliance. It had been open since August and had already managed to become all the rage. To us, it felt like a spark of hope in this beautiful city that was being hit hard by the crisis. After reading some reviews online I found out opinions are divided, it seems like a love it or hate it kind of place. Read more ›

Eat, London

Pizza East

Ah, this is a true must visit on your London itinerary. Pizza East is a well known Shoreditch restaurant, where you can grab a quick and tasty bite before diving into the East London nightlife. But you can just as easily go forbrunch there, and so we did on a very sunny sunday in november. An advocado sandwich, a coke, and the sunlight warming my face trough the windows is all I need to be happy. Read more ›
