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

Where to eat: Streetfood Eindhoven |Best(ies) Lunch

Hi guys!

Recently I came up with this new idea. My bestfriend Gaby (follow her 🙂 ) and I try to have a date every week, and most of the times we go for lunch. As we want to try something new every time, we decided to write about it and share it with you guys! (Also, mostly all the spots are in the Netherlands. But when we go abroad we’ll definitely share that too!)

This week we ate at Streetfood Eindhoven in Eindhoven, the Netherlands.

The place is really small, but in summer and spring when the weather is good, they have a nice terrace. Streetfood Eindhoven is in the center of the city, where all the shopping stores are at the Catherinaplein.

The ambiance is great and the staff was really nice. I really liked it there and it also looked really nice.

On the menu, they have loads of drinks, special sandwiches and their main product: the streetbox.  You can put together the streetbox just as you want. Choose the shape of your fries, salt, sauce and snack. They also sell milkshakes and ‘special’ milkshakes as a Unicorn Milkshake.

Gaby ordered a home made ice green tea with a sandwich with carpaccio (her favorite sandwich, she is probably going to order it everywhere and see where you can get the best). I ordered a unicorn milkshake and a street box with curly fries, seasoned salt, ketchup and a kroket.

The food was really good and I liked how they served it. So cute! And the milkshake was so tasty and it looked adorable. It was really big and together with the delicious street box a bit heavy, but I loved it. Gaby her food was also great.

I really recommend going here if you ever get the chance. It’s an amazing place and they serve such delicious and original food, in a special way. I loved it! It is definitely one of my favorite places.

We will try to do this more often, every week if possible. I really enjoyed it and loved sharing my opinion about it with you! Have a lovely day! xxx

My favorite sandwiches & how to make them

In the Netherlands it is a habit to eat bread with something like peanut butter or cheese on it as lunch. But I am more a fan of sandwiches. I’ve got a few that I really like and often make, so I’m going to share them with you!

Sandwich Brie & Arugula

What you need (for 1 sandwich)

  • 2 pieces of bread (white or brown, what you prefer)
  • Brie
  • Arugula
  • Honey
  • Sandwich toaster / pan to bake it in

It’s very simple. You put some arugula on the bread, on top of that as much brie as you like and on top of that you put some honey to sweeten it a bit. Than you put the other piece of bread on top of that all and you put it in the sandwich toaster. When the bread is crunchy the sandwich is ready!

Sandwich Tomato & Mozerella 

What you need (for 1 sandwich)

  • Bread with Italian specie
  • Tomato
  • Mozerella
  • Pesto
  • Slice of chicken
  • Toaster of an oven

On the bread you put some Pesto, a slice of chicken and a tomato with Mozerella on top. Then you put the the sandwich in the toaster and there you have a Mozerella and tomato sandwich!

Sandwich Salmon & Cream cheese

What you need (for 1 sandwich)

  • Bread
  • Salmon
  • Lettuce
  • Cream cheese
  • Mustard-dill sauce

On the bread you smear some cream cheese, on top of that some lettuce, salmon and sauce. Very simple but delicious sandwich!

Old school sandwich Grilled Cheese

What you need (for 1 sandwich)

  • 2 pieces of bread
  • Cheese (emmentaler or gouda)
  • Ham
  • Sandwich toaster / pan to bake it in
  • (Optional) Tomato ketchup

You lay the cheese on the bread and on top of the cheese you put a slice of ham. The cheese that is falling out of the bread, you can wrap around the ham. Then you put the other slice of bread on top of everything and put it in the sandwich toaster. When the bread is crunchy and the cheese is melted, your sandwich is ready! Enjoy!

Sandwich Goat Cheese

I have some different ways of making this sandwich. The first one is the simple Goat Cheese sandwich: bread, lettuce, goat cheese and honey. The second one is more comprehensive (Google translate says it’s the word that I was searching for so okay), I will describe that one below.

What you need (for 1 sandwich)

  • Bread/sandwich, I like a dark one with some seeds.
  • Lettuce (any kind)
  • Bacon
  • Goat Cheese
  • Honey
  • Some nuts or seeds

Okay so on the picture above, you see the simple version. But it’s is almost the same, the only difference is that you have to put more things on the second sandwich. Oh and I like to warm up my bacon en goat cheese in the oven before I put it on my bread.


Here is the better version of my goat cheese sandwich! Very delicious with a latte machiatto.

I hope you have some inspiration for sandwiches now!

Thankyou so much for reading!
