Today is the official opening of Richard’s by Hellmann’s! It’s a sandwich bar but so much more than that. Richard’s brings the New York deli to Antwerp. The restaurant has brick walls, clean and light furniture and a very yummy menu. Let me tell you something about this unique pop-up in the heart of Antwerp.
Last week, The Boyfriend and I went strollin’ through Antwerp. Enjoying the sun, walking in and out stores, drinking. That was the plan. But our little citytrip turned into some kind of Chocolate Treasure Hunt… I don’t think we’ve visited stores that didn’t include chocolate. Oops!
Antwerp has so many chocolate stores, it’s unbelievable! I think I might map them and make a real Chocolate Treasure Hunt for friends or family. Wouldn’t that be fun?
One of our stops was Chez Claire. Some of you may have heard from it, or already tried it? Chez Claire is a fancy store with exclusively éclairs.
Last Friday, some colleagues and I enjoyed a beer tasting at Brewery De Koninck in Antwerp, Belgium. We had lots of fun. Picture this: a bunch of co-workers, tasting 6 different beers. Yup. We laughed. A lot 😉 What I like most about the brewery is the fact that it’s a city brewery. It gives Antwerp that extra beauty.
I went to Antwerpen Proeft last week. I was super excited because lots of famous Belgian restaurants and chefs were coming and I just knew it would be fun. Besides, you can’t miss out on such a food event being a food blogger, right?
The boyfriend and I started with exploring the different stands because we had to buy coupons and we knew we couldn’t try each and every one of them so we had to decide what to try and what not to. For me, that, obviously, wasn’t such a big deal because I almost only wanted to try desserts xD Oh boy, shame on me. But hey, someone has got to try them right! And the boyfriend doesn’t have such a sweettooth like I do 🙂 So I happily sacrificed myself 😉
Every once in a while a girl needs to go on a shopping trip with her best friend. So that’s exactly what I did last week 🙂 Destination: Antwerp.
Shopping is fun but it can be exhausting too aaaand you can get hungry. What do you do? You look around and see a new spot you haven’t tried yet! This time that new spot was Nata Lisboa. Located at the corner of Groenplaats and Nationalestraat, it was the perfect location for a shopping-break.
I was invited to the official opening of the Elvea Pop-Up Boutique at Stadsfeestzaal, Antwerp. The famous canned tomato brand exists 130 years and that calls for some special celebrations!
Elvea launched the exclusive Selezione del Maestro. Beautiful products with Datterini tomatoes. These tomatoes are a bit sweeter than the others. You can buy them in the supermarket but the limited editions gift box (the four of them together in a beautiful gift box) is exclusively available at the Pop-Up Boutique. It makes the perfect gift for every tomato-lover!
Looks fancy, huh 😀 The dark blue with the gold gives this special edition a very luxurious look. It looks good, tastes great and doesn’t cost you a fortune. What more would you wish for? This fabulous gift box is available in the Pop-Up Boutique at Stadsfeestzaal in Antwerp for 12,50 euros.
For those of you who live in Antwerp or have visited the city in the near past know how the Pop-Up stores inside the Stadsfeestzaal look like. Elvea has claimed its place next to Zest Juice Bar, at the main entrance. You can’t miss it! 😀
The Pop-Up Boutique also offers you the regular and newest products by Elvea. So you can easily buy your own canned tomatoes whilst Christmas shopping for family and friends 😉
To promote the Pop-Up Boutique, Elvea has created this fabulous Fiat 500:
Have a delicious day ❤

I had the time of my life…
No seriously, I had the best night in my life last week!
I was invited to go to Dominique Persoone and learn about his new project: The Honey Project
Plus, we’ve got a workshop on how to make Honey Chocolates by the master himself!
It was a night full of amazing things and wonderful stories.
Once upon a time…
I went to the Antwerp Food Truck Festival last Monday. It was organized by Barrio Cantina and they moved around Flanders. So if you couldn’t get enough of a couple of days, you could travel with the festival to Bruges, Ghent, Antwerp or Ostende.
I took my boyfriend and his best friend to Antwerp for this awesome event.
There were so many foodtrucks! But we had a plan: first see what kind of food there was, then buy our tickets and then… EAT! 😀
Our first stop was at the Microbar. This foodtruck brought us… *hold your breath* … insects!
Yes, that’s right! Insects.
Time for our next overview of the Press Days!
Today: Maison PR.
I walked in and IMMEDIATELY fell in love with the new collection from Keds!
The shoes I’m about to show you are drop-dead gorgeous!
Admit it, you wouldn’t know which one to choose, would you?
Well, I still have two months to make up my mind.
I hope my All Stars will last until then because they are pretty old and worn out by now…
A few weeks ago, I went with some friends to coffeebar Maurice in Antwerp.
You can find it in the KBC building (den Boerentoren)
I LOVE this place! It really is ‘the place to be’.
The interior reminds me of my amazing time in NYC.
You’ll agree that the coffeebar looks like some fancy NYC place 🙂
