Where to eat: Budapest | Best(ies) Lunch

20170611_200842

Recently I visited the lovely city Budapest, Hungary with my best friend. A while ago, I posted this post, where I came with the idea to try out new restaurants and write about it. Of course, we did that in Budapest too!

The first restaurant where we ate is called 4bro downtown, after looking it up on the internet I discovered it is actually a night club too. Our hostel was across of a little street where this place was. Actually, the whole street was full of cute places like this!

We both ordered the club sandwich, we just came out of the plane and were really hungry. It was really good, the sandwich was quite big and filled with vegetables, egg, and chicken. Very tasty! The sandwich came with these tasty potato fries, whom also was really good.  The price for the sandwich was alright, but the rest of the food was quite expensive for Budapest I think.

The ambiance at 4bro downtown was also great, the only disadvantage was that the music was really loud. We just couldn’t hear each other talking, what was quite annoying. But we had a great lunch!

0.75 bar & bistro

In the evening we had dinner at this place called 0.75 bar & bistro, where they mostly served tapas and wine. The restaurant was on the square where the beautiful St Stefanus Basilica was.

We both didn’t order tapas, I went for the goulash soup and Gaby ordered a salad. My goulash was really nice, I loved it! Also, I had this really tasty drink, elderflower lemonade, it was so good! Afterwards, we had some cocktails, Gaby had a mojito and I had a watermelon cocktail. I really enjoyed this dinner.

The restaurant was nice, they had good food and drinks. Also the staff was alright, something went wrong with our order but eventually they fixed it!

Our last dinner we ate at an Italian restaurant, in the same cute street as the 4bro downtown.

The restaurant was really nice, and they had this beautiful quote on the wall saying: “If life hands you lemons, make limoncello”. That’s the spirit!

Gaby ordered this lovely pasta, and I went for the pizza. And it was so good! They also had a wide choice of wines, I ordered a Hugo and got a really nice looking glass with lemon and mint leaves.

I really liked this restaurant. The food, staff, and ambiance were amazing!

Actually, I like all the places where we ate! The only disadvantage of eating in Budapest, what I also experienced when I was visiting Prague last year, is that they include the service cost in the bill. They add 20% of the bill to it. Mostly it isn’t a lot, but I find it quite annoying that they push me to pay a service cost and that I can’t choose for myself if I want to give them a tip or not. But that’s all :). It was funny though, Gaby and I calculated the bill of the last restaurant and came to the conclusion that we had the exact amount of Hungarian money left to pay it in cash, and then there was the extra service cost. Oh well.

We had a great time and some love dinners. If you’re in doubt to visit Budapest, it is totally worth it!

Have a lovely day! xx

Christmas & Glitters

20161227_152301.jpg

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas with your family/friends and had a delicious dinner. I’ve eaten a lot of tasty food and had a lot of fun with my family. Can’t believe Christmas is over already 😦

This Christmas day I decided to wear something different than my pj’s haha. Normally the family dinner is at our house, but this time we went to my aunt, so I had to dress up. I got this beautiful glitter skirt for Christmas Eve, so that was perfect to wear! It is so glittery, I left a whole track of glitters everywhere ooops.

The skirt is from H&M, just as the shirt. I combined it with my boots, to make it a bit warmer. We were a bit in a hurry so I couldn’t make very good photo’s sadly.

For makeup I also went a bit more festive, I added some glitters to my eyes. I did not have a lot of time to do full glam 😦

That was my outfit for Christmas Day. It was a fun day, I had a lovely breakfast with my parents and sister before work (very early) and a delicious dinner with my family at my aunt. Christmas Eve, I’ve worked also and had a delicous Indonesian dinner at my grandparents. On Boxing Day, (in my last post I called it “Second Christmas Day” lol, my dad corrected me) I’ve worked all day. I’ve spended more time at work this Christmas than home, but that makes the moments with the family more special :).

Well that’s it. It’s sad that Christmas is already over, but it was a lot of fun and I really enjoyed it!

All I want for Christmas is… FOOD!

20161219_181827

Tonight it’s finally Christmas Eve! I’m so excited. This whole week I was in a Christmas mood and in a baking Christmassy food mood. And now that Christmas is only one day away, I thought it was time to share it!

On Monday I decided to bake some Christmas tree cookies. I didn’t have tree mold, so I printed a drawing of a Christmas tree and placed that on the dough. Worked very good for me! My sister helped me decorate them. I think they turned out very cute, and most important: very delicious!

Wednesday I cooked a pre-Christmas dinner for my parents, my sister and me. We decided to celebrate Christmas already with the four of us, as we don’t have time on Christmas Eve, Christmas day and Second Christmas day because of working a lot and going to both family sides.. (I don’t know why, but we have a Second Christmas day in the Netherlands. We also have a Second Easter day….)

For the amuse I made a cheese crul filled with ricotta and herbs. For the entree I made carpaccio made out of tomato, but it was more a caprese salad. For the main course I made chicken filled with pesto and mozerella with pomme duchesse made out of sweet potato, French beans and a piece of dragon fruit.

For desert I made tiramisu. So yummy! The egg-white was left so I made merengue out of it.

I really enjoyed the dinner, we had a lot of fun. It was a good start of Christmas 🙂

This year I decided that I really wanted to make a gingerbread house. I found this DIY package at the Flying Tiger, it’s a Danisch store. I really like how it turned out, but ohmygod it was so horrible to put it together! My glace didn’t want to dry and when I finally thought I got the pieces together, everthing fell and one piece broke 😦 . Maybe I used the wrong product to stick them together, I don’t know, but I was glad when I finally got it. It’s a sin to eat it!

Well that was all the Chrismas food I made this week, I’m really looking forward to the Chrismas dinners that are waiting for me haha 🙂

Hope you liked it, have a nice day and a Merry Christmas! Have fun with your family and enjoy the delicous food!
