Yesterday was probably the first time that I ate in a restaurant located in Zaventem. A friend recommended the place so we went with her to discover it. It’s a nice pizzeria decorated like the inside of a boat. I really didn’t expected this but it looks really nice and inviting :)
The menu is full of specialities and everything seemed tasty so we’ve had a hard time picking our meals :p In the end we went for pasta, shrimps and a pizza in order to taste a bit of everything the chef could cook and I wasn’t disappointed at all! My shrimps with pesto and veggies were nicely done but not too greasy or green from the pesto, the black pasta with seafood were simply delicious with a nice balance in the tastes. The pizza was a more classical choice but hey some restaurant can mess up pizzas, not here fortunetly.
Something that I like about the place is the nice atmosphere, the staff who is super friendly and everyone working speaks Italian! There are too many restaurants that are supposedly Italian but they do not employ any Italian, so it just has an Italian name but that’s all. So Panarea is a good pick! By the way, the Tiramisu isn’t bad at all!
Address : Heldenplein 5, 1930 Zaventem
Price : 66€ for the food, a cocke, an ice tea, a martina and two glasses of wine.
Rating : Very nice place!!
We went to check an association called CatRescue this Saturday and guess what…We come back to the apartment with this little fellow and lots of cat equipment! It’s a female half Oriental and half Carthusian giving her a slender look and this nice shade of grey :)
Isn’t this a cool advert? Does it make you want to drink more or Evian? :p
Warm weather announced for this week-end! It’s going to be a nice change after all the rain in Brussels and the low temperature in NY. By the way, the trip in New York was simply amazing! We visited pretty much everything there was to visit and shopped way too much for my budget. I am certain you will be able to imagine how big the budget turned to be if I say that we arrived with a hand luggage and left with 2 hand luggage and one big suitcase :p
What do we do when there is nice weather in Brussels? We sit in the sun, enjoy a fresh drink and eat C-U-P-C-A-C-K-E-S :D
Check this! THe best address in town is Lilycup located 65 rue du page, 1050 Brussels.
On Monday we are leaving for New York! Yes finally :) I am so excited to be able to discover the Big Apple during 8 days but the weather is a bit scary :p Here in Belgium we have around 19° C, blue sky and sun. We can already start having BBQ and apéro but in NY it’s freezing cold can’t go there with a little jacket, I will have to bring a coat, a scarf and gloves. What do you think?
News from Belgium now, we finally got our pool table, so now you can guess what we are doing during evenings? ;) Apéro on the terrace enjoying late sunshine and a good pool game with the neighbours! I just made Sangria using a mix I bought at Alice Délice. I had my doubts but it’s actually very tasty and fresh! I used those cocktail mixes containing dried fruits, berries, sugar and spices and frankly the result is appreciated by everyone, it’s a bit expensive but very handy and a quick solution to fix a nice drink :)
By the way, the plants are growing nicely (oregano, cilantro, basilicum) :) I have received a white orchid from Brico (it’s a shop) for the International Women’s Day (8th of March), you can see it on the picture below, I was surprised that they actually prepared something to celebrate women! I have added to my plant collection a bunch of pink tulips, sun flowers (just sow them). My biggest addition is a mulberry tree growing on our terrace :p I couldn’t resist buying it when I saw it at the Cora grocery shop (they sold trees and plants for one week). Let’s see how all of these look like after 8 days under my neighbours treatment :)
