Italy in Amsterdam

I have a never ending obsession for Italian cuisine, so it doesn’t matter the country I visit, I tend to always end up trying at least one Italian restaurant. And there’s nothing wrong with that. Al contrario!

So on our first day in Amsterdam, we decided to have dinner at Piadina Bar and here’s our experience:

The location is very convenient since it’s so close to the metro station and you know, it’s Amsterdam, everything is a walk away! (Unless it’s raining). The service was excellent, the staff is very friendly and quick. And when it comes to food…

I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves, but please keep in mind that the pizzas are even more delicious than what they look like. There’s no fair way to describe them, you should just give them a try. We’ve ordered

We’ve also done some Italian beer tasting which was one of the best decisions of this trip.

My mom also asked to mention in this review their great music selection. She spent pretty much of her time singing or dancing without leaving her place. Oh well, moms.

Bucharest| Simbio Kitchen Bar

It’s my last day in Bucharest. My feet hurt so much that I stopped feeling them. Weird, I know. But I still have so many places to visit and so little time. I guess I’ll have to come back sooner than I thought.


I couldn’t leave without trying Simbio Kitchen Bar. It has been on my list since day one and it’s so well-known to the locals that I tried to have lunch here on my first days in the city but it was completely full!



This time we got a table and a well-deserved  and delicious meal after so much walking around! My friend and I were so tired that we didn’t even “google-translated” the ingredients on our burgers. We just ordered them and called them “surprise burgers”. Yes, that’s how exhausted we were!


My burger had avocado and goat cheese, which I have to say that for me that’s already a winner! My friend Charis went for something more sweet with caramelized onions. They were both great and enormous!


If you are wondering where is that beautiful designed water bottle from the photographs, I can tell you it’s inside my fridge here in England. No, I didn’t steal it, I kindly asked for it and the waiter said yes with a big smile, just like all the locals we encountered during this amazing trip!
