TRIED & TESTED: EXTRA VIRGIN PIZZA SINGAPORE

April 9th, 2014

extravirginpizzasingapore

Most striking feature:

Just like Wheeler’s Yard this spot isn’t really located in the center of Singapore (at United Square), but as I described earlier, the homemade Strawberry Basil Soda was to die for. So delicious. And since your day evolves around food in Singapore I had to try something of their menu, although I already had lunch at another address. So I’ve tried the panna cotta with chocolate and that was really good too. Extra Virgin Pizza is a new style pizzeria: no red/white checkered tablecloths, but a sleek interior with nifty details. You can go

TRIED & TESTED: BALLS & GLORY ANTWERP

December 30th, 2013

Balls & Glory Antwerp

Most striking feature:

Their meatballs ofcourse. Balls & Glory began their mission of introducing the finest meatballs to the Belgium public in Ghent a few years ago (and after that in Brugge). When I was there last year there was a line of people waiting to get in. That shows how popular they are. Wim Ballieu (what’s in a name?) is the owner and recently won a Golden Palm for most innovative restaurant concept with Balls & Glory. There wasn’t a lot of time to celebrate because he had to work on the opening in Antwerp. The newest Balls & Glory is Read more…

TRIED & TESTED: HOLYBELLY PARIS

November 25th, 2013

holybellyparis8

Most striking feature:

The interior, the service, the graphic design, the perfect breakfast? Holybelly Paris opened a few weeks ago in the area around Canal Saint Martin. I spoke with one of the owners called Nico and he told me that he and his girlfriend went to Melbourne for quite some time. He worked as a (food) photographer for magazines such as Kinfolk, but the Melbourne coffee culture got him badly. He learned everything there is to know about coffee and how to make it. So when the couple travelled back to Paris, they decided to open Holybelly: to bring a bit of Melbourne into Paris. It’s not all about good coffee, because the Read more…

TRIED & TESTED: STAMPPIET EINDHOVEN

October 21st, 2013

stamppieteindhoven

Most striking feature:

Hundreds of blue shirts. StampPiet Eindhoven is a temporary restaurant during the Dutch Design Week. A project by Piet Bergman and his girlfriend, and fashion designer, Mascha van Wely. She’s responsible for the design of the place and was in big need of blue shirts. So she could use the mail-system of Philips and in a short time she collected 600 (!) shirts. Most of them hang above the tables, but you also see them hanging on a rack, on a big pile of folded around a chair. Piet loves creative food concepts (they also hosted a restaurant at the design fair in Milan and next to StampPiet, he also does Read more…

TRIED & TESTED: CHOW AMSTERDAM

September 19th, 2013

chowamsterdam

Most striking feature:

Okay, the first thing I’ve noticed when I entered this restaurant was that it’s located in the Moordenaarssteegje (Alley of Murderers) on the Rozengracht. That sounds promising! Happily there’s also a statue of Mr Chow (see my Instagram picture) who’s keeping an eye on the safety. I’ve visited Chow Amsterdam before the opening and owner Casper Reinders and chef Lex Kok showed me the restaurant and told me what it’s all about. You can expect Asian inspired dishes with Western influences. The restaurant itself has a interesting history because Read more…
