Almost summer in Luxembourg

June 7, 2016

I’m visiting Luxembourg now on monthly basis. Really love the lifestyle here.Yesterday I had dinner at the old city center. Beautiful historical buildings with nice cafes and restaurants. Being lucky with the sunshine, it was great atmosphere outside.


Can’t wait to enjoy the summer…

Pure – Nice breakfast place near Moorgate London 

March 9, 2016

Our London office is situated between Old Street and Moorgate underground stations. There are plenty of breakfast options available in the area. Pure is something popular and hip.

 
Theming in fresh ingredients and healthy breakfast, Pure is something similar to Bagels & Beans in Amsterdam. I can totally see them successful in Amsterdam as well.   

A good breakfast gives great energy to start the day! Enjoy!

Oberweis-authentic pastry brand from Luxembourg 

March 3, 2016

I was totally in love with Oberweis, not only because of the presentation of their products, but also because they are so unbelievably tummy.

It’s almost Michelin star pastry casually for sale at a bakery. Simply too good to be true.

  
The owner has a legendary reputation locally. Their specially designed cakes for occasions won hearts from customers in all age groups. What a success in business!

 The girl at the counter introduced us the tradition of Pretzel Sunday. You give pretzel to your loved one. Why a pretzel? Because the shape looks like a couple walking arm in arm. How sweet!!

Of course Julie & I bought one each for our loved one at home back in Amsterdam as gift from Luxembourg.  

They have multiple shop locations. Check out their website for more information.

Urumqi Restaurant Rotterdam

January 1, 2016

I’ve been longing for authentic Uyghur food in the Netherlands for a long time. It was so exciting that finally there is one opening in Rotterdam. I bookmarked it a month ago and managed to schedule a foodie’s day out with Ignas the day before yesterday.

The restaurant is cosy and clean. The menu is simple and straightforward, with the most typical Uyghur food only, which makes it easy to choose, especially for people who are not familiar with the cuisine.

We ordered Dapanji (chicken noodles, 2-person portion) and Lam Sticks (4 sticks). They served big portion and it was enough for 3-4 persons. The lam sticks are 100% authentic in terms of flavor. The chicken noodles are 75% authentic based on my experiences. That’s already a luxury satisfaction in the Netherlands. I don’t even know whether they have any competitors here in this food speciality.

Price is reasonable. Staff is friendly. We spent €38 for a two-person lunch including drinks. They do serve Heineken beer as well.

My recommendation of this restaurant: 7/10

For Uyghur-food lover & Asian-food adventurer : ★★★★☆
Price/Quality : ★★★☆☆
Service: ★★★☆☆
