Mon premier event | récit

Kimbylicieux - UYE TLGS

Je ne me souviens plus comment je me suis retrouvé sur Yelp, par contre j’ai un souvenir net de mon premier event : c’était au Tram de Boisfort, une friterie-burger spot à tomber. J’étais un peu anxieuse à l’idée de me retrouver avec des personnes que je ne connaissais pas, et au final ce fut une soirée délicieuse tant par le plat que par les personnes présentes.

Tranches de cake

Discovering new food spots is quite like a treasure hunt game. We never really know what we are about to find out, we wander around unknown neighborhoods. I absolutely love that, then when a follower asked me if I was in the mood for a bagel in Uccle I was immediately curious to know what kind of treasure it will be today.

GUEST POST // Quand les parfumeurs s’inspirent des cocktails

Aussi incroyables soient la blogosphère et ses rencontres, il est bon de quitter son écran car rien ne vaut une rencontre en personne. Quelle agréable sensation que celle de découvrir la personne derrière le blog, de discuter avec elle autrement que par hashtag, like et commentaires. C’est ainsi que j’ai rencontré Savas. À peine venait-on de se saluer que j’avais déjà l’impression de le connaître depuis des années tant le courant s’est immédiatement bien établi entre nous. Consultant pour RTBF Tendance et blogueur passionné par les parfums de niche et la…

Monday. Here you are again. Argf… Ok vending machine. You really want to play this? Keeping my money and my chips?! Which part of  « no » don’t you understand?

La Piola | Life is too short to drink and eat badly

We go to La Piola We met reveller foodies We do eat italian (pasta most of all) For about  15 euros I have to confess something: I’v never been in Italy. How to explain this odd, this flaw, while Italian dishes are unavoidable must eat. Meanwhile (not too much) to fill the breach, it is Italy who comes to me – and I hope to you too. Your Italian is limited to ti amoAperol Spritz? Add now the word piola (wine bar – tavern). La Piola is a very nice…

Guest post | we have found the II Element

Craving for an asian dish? It seems like Christine had a hunch about it! Her steps led her to the II Elément. The first thought I have to this restaurant is a brasserie – like most Belgian brasseries. Wrong guess! In fact, it is an Asian one and most specifically a thai restaurant, funny enough because it doesnt sound asian (letting names like « spirit of the dragon » or other « flavors of Asia » in the closet is also pretty good sometimes). If you belong to those whom like modern and bright…
