TRIED & TESTED: BIO MIO COPENHAGEN

August 25, 2010

Most striking feature:

An organic restaurant with funny icons on the menu like ‘After Shopping Relief’, ‘vegetarian’ or ‘macho’. I quess the last one indicates that there’s spinach used in the recipe. The interior screams take-away. Not the perfect places for a romantic dinner, but perfect for a good and cheap meal. Bio Mio is located in the Vesterbr√∂ area: the meatpacking district of Copenhagen where you’ll find cool bars and restaurants (like Karriere Bar and Pate Pate).

TRIED & TESTED: VILLA AUGUSTUS DORDRECHT

May 9, 2010

Most striking feature:

Everything is made by hand. The basil is coming right out their own garden, bread and cookies are baked in their own bakery. I love the atmosphere: it screams celebration, but in a very down to earth kind of way. Different chairs, a cool chandelier, an attractive (Rudolf Steiner School) kind of crowd. Not the ones with sandals and white stinky socks, but the more eco-conscious type. The Water Tower next to the restaurant, takes place as a hotel. And the perfect wedding location.
