Oh the summer of 2013, I will always look back at you fondly! As a young adult, like most others I fascinated about travel to Europe. Back packing, fast trains, walking through cobbled streets, farmers markets et all. I still remember the time we set our wedding date for December, a part of me was a little sad that I wouldn’t be honeymooning somewhere in Europe. So I was beyond thrilled when M planned for us to spend MY birthday in June travelling across France, Brussels and Amsterdam – ( bonus point).We planned this trip for a good 4 months (more posts will follow) – a lot of research went into our 2 weeks right from train routes, sightseeing, hotels etc. So while M ensured we travelled wise, I went about doing what I do best – going through numerous online articles, blog etc to sample the best food these places had to offer. And what I found, was anything short of legendary!
Then we were served these Tomato based Scampi ( shrimp) – juicy and succulent with a dash of parsley and peppers. Nice, but somehow didn’t float my boat. It takes a mean shrimp to impress me!
The fresh seafood, sunny summer afternoon & wine was such a fabulous experience – both of us wanted to go back! And we did, but unfortunately they were opening late the day we were leaving so we couldnt get a chance. That we went back to repeat a restaurant on a 4day trip of Brussels, is a testament to the fabulousness of the fare on offer!
