WEEKEND IN ANTWERP

Antwerp is without a doubt Belgium’s coolest city. It is perfect for a weekend trip. Not only does Antwerp offer you a great mix of medieval architecture and modern life, but it’s also ideal for shopping and going out. If you are a foodie like me, you would love it! Just like in every other Belgian city it’s all about that BELGIAN BEER! You can even have it in your meal. Order konijnenbil op grootmoeder’s wijze in De Groote Witte Arend. It is delicious! So if you didn’t order beer, chances are your meal will get you drunk 🙂 The interior is stylish; if you happen to be there on a nice day, the restaurant has a beautiful terrace where you can enjoy your dinner in a unique setting. Another recommendation is Billie’s Bier Kafeteria, just around the corner – it has a great beer selection as you may have guessed. I didn’t expect anything less of the Belgian beer but as I am not the biggest beer fan I was pleasantly surprised to discover …

MEET ME AT 5&33

Just at the corner of Martelaarsgracht and Prins Hendrikkade in Amsterdam, you will find the perfect spot in town for  foodies and art lovers. 5&33 has a kitchen, bar, lounge, art gallery, and library just a few steps away from the Central station. I picked the spot for a dinner with a friend and it quickly became a favourite of mine. The vibrant venue first captured  me with its design, ambiance, and elegant interior. The menu is inspired by Mediterranean flavours, offering a shared-dining concept (which I applauded after the first few dishes came around. You just want to try everything there is on the menu!).  5&33 is one of the places you love everything about. If I had to describe it in a few words, I would use inspiring, fresh, and chic.
