As my new favorite place in Amsterdam is the Hallen, my goal is to try every restaurant and stand there. Halte 3 is the new Brasserie in the Hallen. It is not that big with the bar centered in the middle, which makes it seem like a pretty small place, but actually it has a lot of tables.
There are opening new food markets everywhere; El Nacional in Barcelona, de Markthal in Rotterdam and de Foodhallen in Amsterdam. And since I’m a big fan of little bites instead of big platters of food, food markets are the perfect place to have some dinner and drinks.
Who didn’t want to build tree houses when they were little? I always feel like sitting in a tree house when I’m at Hanneke’s Boom. It is such a great place away from the city, but actually in the city centre. It’s the perfect way to escape the busy city for an afternoon, just like you escaped when you were little by climbing in your tree house.
If you are looking for tapas in Hong Kong, go to 22 Ships! It is a super tiny restaurant and there is always a waiting line when you arrive, though never long and definitely worth the waiting. Must haves are the amazing little fois gras burgers and beetroot goat cheese salad, but actually everything on the menu is delicious. When the weather is good go sit on the long table that is half on the inside, half on the outside and enjoy your sangria or San Miguel.
