TRIED & TESTED: ALPENSTUECK BERLIN

April 25, 2011

Babs den Haring is  one of the most dedicated Petite Passport travellers. Together with her handsome husband she travelled to Berlin:

Most striking feature:

“We didn’t visit the restaurant, but the bakery across the street. It’s a sweet little bakery with white tables and chairs. Behind the beautiful counter you will find all kinds of delicious food. Like bread with several kinds of German cheese. This is the place to be if you want to learn more about traditional German food. And a good place to have breakfast. Oh and don’t forget to take a look at their beautiful pictures on the wall.”

TRIED & TESTED: NOURISH UTRECHT

April 8, 2011

Most striking feature:

It’s green in here. From the interior (look at the cute green feet of the chairs) till the kitchen. Expect raw food, freshly squeeuzed juices and even raw cake. They’re open from breakfast till dinner. You can choose for a raw, vegetarian, fish or meat dish. Next time when I go here for lunch I will definitely choose the Soul Burger (14,50 euro). In summer they’re gonna open a Salad Bar for take out. Perfect for a day in the park.

TRIED & TESTED: THE FOLLY BAR LONDON

March 16, 2011

Most striking feature:

The toilets. The most beautiful toilets I’ve ever seen in my life (first two photos). This is heaven. With handsoap and handcream at the sinks, wooden doors, a tree in it, some cool design chairs. If you take a look in the mirror the lights are just good enough (so that you’re the pretty version of yourself, not the striplight version). Upstairs it’s fantastic as well. You have several seating areas. For a simple drink, something to eat and a late night drink. At night downstairs is the place to order a cocktail. Must see!

TRIED & TESTED: ALBION CAFE LONDON

March 15, 2011

Most striking feature:

A fresh cafe next to the Boundary hotel in the middle of Shoreditch. A good place to have breakfast or lunch before or after a shopping spree. There’s a little store next to it where you can buy all kind of delicatessen. I’ve ordered an omelett with mushrooms. Very simple. There’s also a very simple water can. Outside there’s a terrace (see picture taken in the evening).

TRIED & TESTED: BARBICAN FOOD HALL LONDON

March 14, 2011

Most striking feature:

The Barbican is famous for it’s great exhibitions, but there’s more. The Food Hall for example. This is a great venue for a quick lunch or something to drink. You will find Kettle chips next to a chocolate croissant. It’s also kids friendly. You will find some games for them in the back of the restaurant. In summer they open their terrace.

TRIED & TESTED: CARAVAN ON EXMOUTH

March 10, 2011

Most striking feature:

This hotspot is a bit out of the normal touristic route. It’s located in Clerkenwell. And it’s the perfect start of the day. Because you can have breakfast and coffee (this place is famous for their coffee, but I’m more a tea girl). I’ve ordered some scrambled eggs and while we sat their eating and drinking we saw the red double deckers busses passing by and in front of the restaurant are two red phonecells. The perfect place to be an anonymous tourist 😉
