Soup? A small research for DLCS

On the picture below you see the first “Caldo Gallego” I have ever tried, a typical Galician soup which I ate in Spain.

EatWith – a new way of culinary tourism/a new dining experience

EatWith.com is a global community marketplace offering unique dining experiences in private homes around the world. Connect with amazing hosts, meet new people and experience the hottest new foodie trend!

When EatWith founder Guy Michlin was on vacation in Crete, the best meal he had was in the home of a local instead of in a restaurant. After visiting the tourist restaurants his wife and he found this personal experience so special, it was worth much more than a visit to a restaurant. He came up with a new business concept, so everyone could experience food this unique way.

EatWith has started the set up of this food community experience in Israel and Spain and will soon expand to the rest of the world.

As host, you choose the menu, dates, times and price. EatWith acts as an intermediary between the two parties and takes 15% on the total price of the dinner or lunch.

The set-up of this  “global community that brings together people who are passionate about cooking  and travelers looking for a different lunch or dinner” has commenced in Israel and Spain, but keep your eyes open; soon you will encounter Eatwith in many more places! Keep an eye on them! I say this community that lets you enjoy authentic and intimate dining experiences in people’s homes will be booming!

Check out the site & browse through your potential future hosts’ profiles: http://eatwith.com

All day breakfast at The Breakfast Club in London

I could have made this up; a place where it’s possible to have BREAKFAST ALL DAY.Sometimes you just feel like having breakfast. Sometimes you’re in a different rythm. Anyhow, breakfast is always good. Recommended to me by Tiller’s Tale over here , I thought I didn’t have enough time left to visit the place, so I kind of forget about it. Until we were looking for a place to have lunch, in the pooring rain in the vicinity of Liverpool Street Station (Spitalfields) and ran into The Breakfast Club Cafe.


Having had my first Full English the day before….. and some toasts and homemade English marmelade this morning for breakfast, it was time to have something very filling again. I ordered bangers on a roll with sweet onion chutney and a portobello mushroom (We call a roll a bun on this side of the sea), with a ginger beer. The ginger beer was great! I wish I could buy that over here!

The Breakfast Club  serves up everything from the traditional English to Pancakes and Eggs Benedict. They even take into account those worried about fitting into their skinny jeans; they serve mueslis, porridge or fruit salads too. As the day progresses they move on to a range of wraps, burgers, burritos, pies, sharing plates and salads. All this washed down with fairtrade lattes, smoothies and a range of beers, wines and cocktails.

Interesting detail; when my brunch-partner ordered a glass of tap water, it was served in a Grolsch (beer) beugelfles. Very stylish, like the rest of the establishment. I love the looks of the place. The design is beautiful and I definitely felt at home.

Vietnamese street food restaurant Pho in Soho, London

The only Vietnamese food I ever consumed are Vietnamese loempia’s (springrolls). This changed when I visited London. From now on I love Vietnamese food like I love Indonesian (got some of my grandmoms leftovers for lunch at work today, woohoo!), Thai, Malaysian, Japanese and Chinese food. But when I think of it…is there any Asian kitchen I don’t like? I’m not very familiar with Korean  food for example yet but I’m sure I’ll like it too, for me it’s never too exotic…..

Pho opened in Clerkenwell in June 2005 as London’s first Vietnamese street food restaurant.
They’re family run, small, informal and serve great value, deliciously healthy and authentically prepared Vietnamese food . They specialise in the Vietnamese national dish, pho, an amazingly tasty and nutritious noodle soup, as well as other wonderful Vietnamese foods, coffees (served Vietnamese style including the renowned weasel coffee! ), beers and fresh juices. They now have 5 restaurants in London and one restaurant in Brighton. Pho Soho is right in the middle of Wardour Street in a listed building once home to a famous furniture designer of the 1790’s. It’s a uniquely shaped restaurant with lots of character – original brickwork, old sash windows and 3 fireplaces. Pho Soho seats around 58 and offers Pho’s full menu eat in and takeaway seven days a week.

Check the menu http://www.phocafe.co.uk/files/menus/eatin_soho.pdf

We entered the busy place around 2200 pm, were told to have a drink at he bar, but we were already seated after 5 min. We kicked off with some kroepoek; prawn crackers with chilli sauce. I ordered Bun Bo Hue, a hot ad spicy brisky beef soup or pho, served with a chilli shrimp paste (This dish tasted like it was made especially for me! It contains everything I like!)  accompanied by a homemade lemonade with limes & Vietnamese Hanoi vodka. It tasted like an unbelievably good lemonade without vodka. I saw the waitresss poor in the vodka, it was definitely there. I’ll have to figure out how to make such a lemonade before the picnick season starts again (it’s rainy. Very rainy.). TIPS?

Pass by Poh if you would like an affordable & filling & very tasty dinner. Or lunch ofcourse.
More info:
Monday to Saturday 12 – 11pm
Sunday 12pm – 10pm
Address: 163-165 Wardour Street, London, W1F 8WN,

So… What is your ultimate lemonade-recipe (Don’t worry, child-friendly-lemonade is perfect, the rest comes later.) ?

London was simply amazing. I love that city! I liked it much more than I expected.

Some things are really tough to get used to though, I can manage crossing a street without getting hit by a car, I simply look into every direction before I cross ;) .

But on the tube (which made me apreciate my bicycle and the max. 25 min. cycle distance with which you can reach about any place in Ams, even more) I get lost. You walk on the right sight of the left stairs. My brains didn’t seem to want to understand this. I was non-stop in the way of other people in a hurry and then they apologised to me after bumping into me, the Londoners are soo polite! Another thing I didn’t understand in London was why most bathrooms have a separate pipe for hot & cold water? I had never seen this before…

Borough Market; heaven In London. The coolest place in Lon. Yes, even more cool than Camden Market! The best market I’ve ever been to….

Not sure if it was a good or a bad thing I came here after my English brekkie…
