Foodie from Rotterdam @fromrotterdamtotokyo

strictly food only ๐Ÿคค ๐Ÿ“ Rotterdam I grew up with Japanese food but love trying out something new ๐Ÿง Grading from๐Ÿ‘Œ to ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ ใ‚ชใƒฉใƒณใƒ€็”Ÿใพใ‚Œใฎๆ—ฅๆœฌใจใƒ™ใƒซใ‚ฎใƒผใฎใƒใƒผใƒ•ใงใ™๐Ÿค—

We stood in line for about 45 minutes but it was worth it, best value for money we had in Paris of the whole trip! The onion soup was one of the best Iโ€™ve ever had, love the bone marrow starter and the main dishes were tasty, I loved the starters more than the main dishes to be honest but would definitely recommend trying this place! ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ

These elevator pancakes were good! Loved the combination of the choc, peanutbutter, strawberries and bananas and of course I had to add some bacon ๐Ÿ™ˆ there are many other things on the menu I would like to try so definitely going back here! ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ

Angelinaโ€™s Mont Blanc and hot chocolate ๐Ÿ˜ the hot chocolate was pricey but quite worth it, though I must say together with the Mont Blanc it was a lot of sweet. The normal Mont Blanc had a great texture, the bottom made of merengue and the not too sweet whipped cream inside with the thick chestnut cream on top was balanced very nicely ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ. The hot chocolate was thick and had a deep nutty flavor๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ. The cherry mont Blanc was a season special, it also had some cherry filling inside which made it sweeter than the normal one, I was glad to have tried it but I prefer the normal one ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ
P.s. we went to the Angelina inside galerie la Fayetteville because the other one had a long line, the original one might be nicer on the inside, I donโ€™t know to be honest, but if you donโ€™t want to wait, this is a very nice place too.

A little wine and cheese to finish off a great day โ˜บ๏ธ loved this bar, the owner opened it two years ago and it has been running well thanks to his great service, he asks you what type of wine you would like to drink en letโ€™s you try three wines according to your description, all three costing between 6-8 euros per glass. Needless to say the wine suited my taste perfectly, the cheese platter was perfect too, there is always a cheese that I donโ€™t really like on the platter but these cheeses were all good, even the blue cheese is soft of flavor. ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ

Tendon (bowl of tempura on rice) at Higuma. A cheap dinner (11โ‚ฌ) after the splurge on unagi but it was tasty and hit the spot. The tempura was crunchy and fresh and good enough for the price, there was a lot of sauce but the sauce tasted good not overly sweet or salty. It reminds me of cheap chain restaurants in Japan.  I figured it was a Japanese establishment by the menuโ€™s outside but got scared when we heard some waiters speaking Chinese inside, in the end there was some Japanese staff as well so it really is an authentic Japanese restaurant. ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ (Japanese style fast food)

One of our favorite meals in Paris was ... Unagi ๐Ÿ™ˆ we donโ€™t have an unagi shop in the Netherlands so when we read about this restaurant we had to try it! It is always in our top three of things to eat when we are in Japan. It did not dissapoint! They have three stores in Japan too and are rather famous I heard. Prices were decent for Unagi โœŒ๏ธ and the food ๐Ÿคค I give it ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ

Swipe left for the best croissants Iโ€™ve ever had in my life ๐Ÿ˜ I was so hungry and exited for the croissants I forgot to take a proper picture๐Ÿ˜ณ they were so full of flavor while being crunchy soft and fluffy at the same time, I understand why it is on many blogs as the number one croissant in Paris, but I havenโ€™t been able to try many others this trip so I canโ€™t compare but I do really recommend it ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ

This duck breast with honey and raisin sauce ๐Ÿ˜ I am such a sucker for meat with a sweet sauce ๐Ÿคค the duck was cooked quite soft, not too chewy and the potatoes and veggies finished it off great! The fricassee of chicken here is also very good, full of flavor and I heard people at other tables recommend the bed bourguignon. The atmosphere here was great! The lady has been running this shop for twenty years and it feels like you are visiting your aunty, then halfway through dinner the cat came right up and sat next to our friend ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ But a must for the atmosphere!

Yann couvreur patisserie ๐Ÿ˜ the Kaugn Amman was a pleasant new experience, they call it the Parisian cousin of the croissant, the quiche was great, nicely balanced flavors of creamy, meat and a little sour. The Mille fouille was perfect! They make it fresh on the spot after you order it so the layers are crunchy and the cream is very smooth and not too sweet ๐Ÿฅฐ ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ

Flemish stew and steak at au Vieux Saint Martin. I thought I would give stews one more try but the price wasnโ€™t worth it.... I am so used to Japanese hayashi rice that not much can beat that... oh the fries and mashed potato were very good though! ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ
