Inside Hotel NH Collection Amsterdam Barbican Palace.
Hi Guys! I was supposed to post this post about my trip this weekend in Amsterdam earlier this week. But I was totally busy and sick`.. I spent my weekend in Amsterdam. A short citytrip Amsterdam is not far from where I live in Antwerp is an hour’s train ride away with Thalys. This train connects Paris – Amsterdam in less than 4 hours via Brussels, Antwerp and Rotterdam. I wanted to show you my favorite places I visited this weekend where I had never visited before I found them on a nice blog yourlittleblackbook I love this lifestyle blog where I can really find great addresses especially in the Netherlands and Amsterdam because she is Dutch. I would like to find a blog like this for every city I visit in the world ahah. If you have a lifestyle blog, let me know. I’m planning my next trips right now and I’am looking for new addresses. I can wait for the upcoming trips.
Inside my hotel room NH Collection Amsterdam Barbican Palace.
My favorite hotel when I stay in Amsterdam. Located just near to the central station and the city centre. I ‘am so in love with the interior architecture of which is cozy and modern.
View of Amsterdam and my delicious dish at The Avocado Show.
After taking a walk in Amsterdam. Admiring this typical architecture is always a real pleasure. Then I went for lunch at The Avocado Show. One of my favorite places because I’ am a avocado lover. And I especially love this new concept where avocado is the highlight in this restaurant. So avocado lovers you can eat this delicious fruit in any way sweet or salty as salad dish or dessert. The Avocado Show is located in Amsterdam but also in Brussels.
Black and Blue restaurant
One of the best steak in Amsterdam at Black and Blue restaurant. That’s where I spent my last evening in Amsterdam before going home on Sunday morning. Kisses -M-
Location : Troquet River North, Chicago, USA
This morning I woke up with the same jetlag problem. But actually it doesn’t matter I’m going back to Europe in two days so I preferred to stay on European time. I woke up at 3:00 in the morning. I think I broke my record of woke up early. During my long hours of sleepwalking ah ah I worked, replied to my emails preparing my posts everything I need to do during the day such a productive night.. Then came the problem I have to change of hotels because I have to post about the next hotel I’m going to stay in Chicago. So I couldn’t sleep and had to pack my luggage again but it was ok I am in the habit of this kind of situation. Then I stopped for lunch and luckily it was a urban French style restaurant called Troquet River North. After eating I was dead tired and I have to stay awake because I have dinner tonight. During these few hours of waiting during my checkout of my previous hotel and check in of the next hotel I take the opportunity to write this post.
French fries are Belgium’s national dish. In our country we eat fries for lunch as for dinner. We usually use saus like mayonnaise, ketchup and many others you won’t even imagine how much fries saus you can find in Belgium. This dish which is one of my favorite is simple to eat fries + saus. When I heard about this new original concept of eating french fries with meat on a haute couture way! I was so curious to taste this. The founder and chef of this great idea is Sergio Harman. A chef of Dutch origin known for his Michelin stars, he is also the chef of the restaurant Oud Sluis (2013) and The Jane.
The menu is very easy you can choose between three way. Thai Seasonal Special for those of you who like to eat spicy. Flemish Beef Stew Personally I know this saus well so I didn’t choose this dish but next time I would like to taste this. The one I chose is Tomato Basil Parmesan a Mediterranean and vegetarian flavor combination. A perfect trendy spot in Antwerp.
What about the idea of a dinner at level122 of the Burj Khalifa tower. Atmosphere restaurant is the highest restaurant in the world. Eating a fine dinner at 442 meters from the ground is an experience that you need to try if you stay in Dubai. Atmosphere restaurant is composed of a restaurant and a lounge where you can enjoy many delicious cocktails and a ‘A la carte menu’.

Anyway this is a nice place where you’ll find the perfect hotdog for every taste.
