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.
Besides its beautiful name you have to go to the SWAN market in Rotterdam because it is such a fun place. It is located at the Museumpark in summer and not a big market at all, just nice and cozy. The entrance for the market is only 1 euro and for that you can enjoy a lot of things. Shop at the stalls for handmade bags, vintage clothes or local made food. Or grab a coffee and carrot cake or beer and hamburger to eat at the picnic tables and enjoy the live music.
This French wine bar is a place to enjoy some good wines in a little bar in the midst of the Central Hong Kong craziness. Share a cheese platter with your friends or just hang at the bar to have a French conversation with the bartender. And if you’re lucky they take out the Polaroid camera and you will get a spot on their wall.
