Benji’s

 

On the 20th May 2017, I went to try Benji’s with my dad. Which is located outside of the city centre of Amsterdam near the outskirts where many collages and universities are. It was a nice and spacious place has a lot of glass windows and makes it very nice and bright from inside. There was plenty of seats to go and sit at and especially when it’s nice weather you are able to sit outside on the terrace to. We decided to sit inside because we were not sure if it was going to rain or not. As we sat down we got a menu and then you had to go and order at the bar. I ordered as drink a juice of the day which was a green drink with spinach and other green vegetables. As my meal I ordered the ”Buddha Bowl Salad” which had Quinoa, Chickpeas, carrot, red cabbage, avocado, homemade hummus, cucumber and sweet potato. But I ordered my dish without cucumber because I am not a big fan of cucumber and prefer it without. Then when the meal came there was a mistake made and in my dish they had put cucumber in and with my dad’s dish they left the cucumber out so they had no problem with sorting it out and bringing the orders back to solve the problem. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The food was really good to and great atmosphere not too noisy and you could probably come and study here while eating something. I would definitely come again because the service was great and they solved the situation out with the cucumber and with no problem. We came also around 12PM on a Saturday and there was no que, not sure if it gets busy at any time when you have to wait but I know for sure there are plenty of seats available.

Marbella – DA BRUNO a Casa ristorante

 

On the 24th of April 2017, for dinner we went to one of my dad’s most favourite restaurant when we come to Marbella, Spain. Which is called ”DA BRUNO ristorante”. It has a variety of different choices with Spanish and Italian food. The atmosphere is pleasant and not too noisy. The staff are friendly, speak english and are easy to understand. I suggest if you are thinking of coming to this restaurant during the summer to book because you won’t otherwise get a table and would probably have to wait a long time until you get one. To start with I ordered ”Prawns Pil Pil” which is a spanish dish meaning spicy prawns and they are really good and one of my favourite dishes when coming to this restaurant. It’s also a well known dish in Spain. Then as main course I went for the ”Ravioli with Pumpkin” and with a butter sage sauce. This was really tasty and basically I always order these starters and main courses when I come here.  I will definitely come back (Always have so far). Most people eat here quite late if you like to have atmosphere of more people around. Also you can sit outside or inside depending how the weather is. There are many other Da Bruno’s in Marbella but the one we went to is linked down below. I would rate this a 5 out of 5

THE AVOCADO SHOW

 

Today, Saturday 13 May 2017, I went to try The Avocado Show with my parents. Last time I went I was there with just my mom throughout the week but because it was Saturday my dad joined too. The food last time was really good thats why we came back again today to also try new dishes from last time. The Avocado Show was opened around March 2017, since then it has become a very popular hotspot place of Amsterdam with many tourists that know about it to because of the Instagram Page that was set up. The menu has a reasonable amount of choice with every dish being different. Because it’s new and a lot of people know about it. There is also a waiting que at the moment which can lead up to 1 hour and 30 minutes (It’s worth the wait when you get inside for the food). The atmosphere is very pleasant inside and the staff are friendly and all speak good spoken english. As drink I ordered a Iced latte which was very nice but a bit too strong for me. As a starter dish we ordered nachos which comes with cheese on top and 3 dips which are salsa, guacamole and sour cream but its a big portion. We also ordered Yakitori skewers which was very good. As our second dishes we all had 3x a poke bowl which is my absolute favourite because I had it last time and remembered how good it was. As last we had a dessert which was ”The Blind Date” It’s a avocado split in half thats like cake but it’s hard to describe what is in it or what it actually is but I had it last time as well and it was very good. I would definitely come again and always will probably but the only downside is the waiting que but you have to wait to receive good food. I would rate this a 5 out of 5

Marbella – PAN & MERMELADA

 

On the 24th of April 2017, we had some lunch just 10 minutes from our hotel. To a place which is called Pan & Mermelada. I have been to this place almost every year since I was little as I have been to Marbella a lot and the food is very good but this time it was owned by different people to what the owners were last year which was a disappointment. The atmosphere is always nice because you are sat outside (or you can sit inside) when its nice weather and sat next to a walking way where you can watch people go by. Also you can have breakfast, lunch and dinner here. We came to have lunch around 12PM but there lunch menu didn’t start till 1:30PM so we had to take food off the Breakfast menu but that was not a problem for me as they had American pancakes on the menu which made me really happy because I love having pancakes for breakfast or brunch. In the end I ordered to drink an Avocado which had some other fruits&veg mixed in, it was presented nicely as it came in a mason jar which is quite trendy at the moment which I thought was very nice. With my drink I ordered American Pancakes with chocolate chip. It tasted quite nice but different to my expectations because they were far too big and I wasn’t able to finish it all. The new staff were reasonable and friendly.  I would come again to try the lunch menu as I saw online they had some things which caught my eye but the Lunch menu is quite late which is a shame. I would rate this a 4 out of 5
