That I love food is totally acknowledged, at least by my inner circle. I love food that tastes like the soul, love and passion of the ones who make it. I dont like food just because it looks beautiful and expensive. One thing I know, you put food inside your mouth and eat it, not stare at it. SO for the sake of my love for soul food, I want to share my latest favorite hotspot in town: Down Town Gourmet Market.
Bruges or Brugge is one of that charming cities you have to visit in Belgium. Bruges is famous and therefore is packed with tourists all year long. However, if you know the tricks and gems to avoid the crowd, you will enjoy your time when you are in Bruges.
So I have been to these places, where they have food, lots of food and everything related to food. The Netherlands seems to be craving for trendy food markets where you can sit back, relax and enjoy your food with your loved ones but without the fuss of being apt and elegant. Street food and healthy organic dishes have also become THE thing here. I know, for those of you in America, this is so yesterday, right?
This capital city of the Netherlands is just like any other famous capital cities in Europe, busy all year long. Those hustling and bustling of the pedestrians, cyclers, scooters and cars; that iconic and classic sounds of bicycle and tram’s bell and the breeze of the coastal wind just at the corner of the canals makes a visit to Amsterdam at any time of the year seems to be inevitably mesmerizing.
I am an Indonesian living in the Netherlands. As part of the Asian communities living abroad, I do have to admit that I still carry on some of the best (well I think it is still the best) Asian traditions while living abroad, such as the food tradition. Luckily I live in the Netherlands. Since the post colonial period there have been so many exotic, especially Indonesian, products in the Netherlands and dishes such as nasi goreng (fried rice) has become a common dish.
