Portuguese cuisine is one of my favorites. I tasted some delicious dishes when I was at Lisbon. Since I’ve been in the Netherlands I’ve eaten Dutch cuisine. I found this restaurant by chance while walking through the streets of Amsterdam located at Rembrandtplein square this Portuguese restaurant has a very typical Portuguese interior. I tasted a typical Portuguese dish Bacalhau à Lagareiro. Cod is one of the most popular fish in the traditional Portuguese cuisine. One of the most famous and delicious recipes is the cod “à lagareiro ». As dessert I tested the popular Pastel de nata. Puff pastry with custard I love this Sweet dessert one of my favorite.
I know that many of you are disappointed that you are not able to travel the world since this Covid pandemic. But traveling is mostly about discovering new places and sometimes close to your home. This week I made a road trip into The Netherlands. A neighbouring country of Belgium, I discovered new places of this country that I didn’t know. I have already visited The Netherlands especially the cities near the Belgian border and of course Amsterdam. But I had never visited the northern parts of The Netherlands and I was not disappointed. During this trip I also learned a lot about the Dutch food.
Let me show you my road trip during this few days.
I arrived in Amsterdam where I stayed at Pestana Amsterdam Riverside my favorite hotel of the city. During these few days I wanted to learn more about the dutch food. I had a dinner at L’invite a Dutch Restaurant with modern Dutch cuisine North Sea Fish Dutch meat and Dutch biodiversity of vegetables.The perfect place where you can eat local Dutch food.
I left Amsterdam to go to the Friesland part. By the part of North Holland by taking the Afsluitdijk bridge. Getting to Friesland I went to visit the city of Sneek situated in Southwest-Friesland. Frieland is also known for its nature and beautiful beaches.
After staying at Van Der Valk hotel in Sneek I went to Groningen I always wanted to visit this city. The largest city in the north of the Netherlands. I had a dinner at Bistro Loulou.
I went back to Amsterdam I stayed at the Chateauhotel Havixhorst, a beautiful place. The old De Havixhorst manor (built in 1753) a nature lover’s dream base. I had a dinner at De Groen Lantaarn. The restaurant has been awarded 2 Michelin stars.
Last week I was in Amsterdam, a city I have been to so many times. Located in the Oude-Zuid district of Amsterdam. I discovered another part of the city. A neo-renaissance style buildings of the nineteenth century and two modern annexes on the banks of the Amstel. Next to De Pijp, the trendiest district of the city. This hotel is situated in a quiet location. The rooms are elegant and the lobby is so beautiful. I enjoyed the spa with and the indoor swimming pool.
It was a real pleasure to stay at the famous and mythic Negreco palace during my stay in Nice. The feeling to stay in this art gallery hotel with a perfect service was just amazing. A wonderful hotel to discover if you stay in Nice
This hotel is especially well-known for its large private art collection of Mrs Jeanne Augier. 70s armchairs, paintings of Gallic roosters or « Nanna” by Niki de Saint Phalle. A great admirer of Versailles, a compulsive collector, Jeanne Augier had accumulated more than 6,000 works of art. During my stay I had the chance to have a guided tour with Mr. Adrien Majeranowski. Executive duty manage to learn more about the history of this beautiful palace.
This hotel is of the rare survivors of the hotel industry at the beginning of the 20th century and one of the last independent establishments of this class. Its facades are based on a neoclassical framework, with an opulent, and baroque ornamentation.
One of the things that fascinates me about this hotel is that each floor is filled from salons dedicated to Louis XVI or Napoleon III to Venetian or “Street Art” rooms, a unique selection of French artwork from the 17th century to today. I stayed on the second floor at the collection FEMME I had a big interest every day for this feminine collection.
During my stay I stayed at the Coco Chanel suite, the interior design is done to remind us the iconic style of Channel, the armchair fabric, the bag and all paintings on the wall – all was inspired by the legendary tailor – It was like staying in the private apartment of Chanel.with a wonderful view on the famous “Promenade des Anglais »
I really would like to thank all the Negresco team for their welcome and also in particular Mr. Adrien Majeranowski for this guided visit of this unbelievable hotel.
Moxy Minneapolis Downtown 247 Chicago Ave, Minneapolis, MN
I love spending time at Moxy. A bar in downtown Minneapolis. The retro/ 90s interior style is amazing. There are also games like the ones I played when I was a child. But I go there especially for the best cocktails in town. Elliott (the bartender) he always knows what is my favorite cocktails. And he is the only one who knows how to prepare them exactly as I want. There are two in particular. Amaretto Sour (the American version with a white egg) normally I always drink it without the egg but now I prefer the American version. And an other cocktail (I don’t know the name) based on lemon juice and gin. A cozy place to have a good time with friends and family.
