TRIED & TESTED: GEORGE DELI AMSTERDAM

November 28, 2010

Most striking feature:

The freshness of the ingredients. If you have one single doubt about honestly produced food, please go here. Order a club sandwich or a tomato soup and you will taste what it’s like to eat bio food. I can say it was my best club sandwich ever. And a tiny little extra: you can order a whole club sandwich or the half of it. Great option because who doesn’t think club sandwiches are usually to huge to digest? George Deli is situated above Marqt (the bio supermarket). So good to combine a shopping spree with a lunch.

LIKE TO HAVE: STATIONARY of GREEN DEPOT NY

September 10, 2010


Green Depot is a department store. It sells everything: from baby clothing to light bulbs. But everything in here is ‘green’. Some stuff is locally produced, other stuff is recycled and another product is an energy saver. If you want to go green, it’s definitely worth the check out. Because everything is presented in an ultra chic way. I like this notebook which is made entirely from discarded paper. From 10 dollar (8 euro).

TRIED & TESTED: KUNSTHAL KOOKT ROTTERDAM

September 10, 2010


Most striking feature:

This pig. I love an entrecote sometimes, so I’m not a vegetarian, but this sight attracked a lot of visitors. Only a couple of them tried to eat it: it tasted delicious (so I heard). There are a lot of little market places where you van taste small food (I tried the boiled and baked watermelon with goat cheese from restaurant de Eendracht, mmm) from meat to ice-cream. It attracks a crowd who loves food – but also the way it is produced. Price: 14 euro. Till sunday.

  3. To get inspiration for your own interior.

TRIED & TESTED: PROEF AMSTERDAM

July 18, 2010

Most striking feature:

The details. Imagine this: you enter an old industrial building with yellow picknick tables in the garden. You sit down at one of the chairs and your eye directly falls upon a lovely blanc notebook. Open it (the menu is stuck in it) and you immediately get creative. Because in this book they ask you to draw the person next to you or to answer what you hope would happen this night. I ordered a glass of apple juice. Not served in a normal glass, but in a jar. There is a text on the balconny made of marshmellows. And the smell of freshly baked food does the rest. Absolutely worth a visit!

Recommendation by Albertine van den Brink

TRIED & TESTED: URBANA 47 ROME

June 15, 2010

My ex-colleague Albertine van den Brink, who now works for Pink Ribbon Magazine, went to Rome and discovered this fabulous restaurant:

Most striking feature:

“The interior. Every piece of furniture is for sale. The menu on the wall indicates the prices of the chairs and tables. I’ve been there for lunch when they serve a buffet. That sounds aweful, but imagine big plates of the most delicious biological food and you’ll get the picture. 8 euro per plate.  Urbana47 is situated in the Monti area where you will find a lot of other cool places. The owners are also responsible for the restaurant Zoc22 in the Ghetto area (Jewish neighbourhood).”
