Cupcakes with Barbara, in front of school cupcake place.
The positive: pretty. The negative: 1. One of the cakes was too old and dry. 2. The butter cream was disgusting for me, Barbara seemed fine with it. 3. Was expensive. Bottom line: Better to just look from the window, you get all the good without the bad.
Crêpe with Shane
The positive: 1. the buckwheat is a lot more healthy and also give a different flavor. 2. was freshly made. 3. pretty cheap 4. changed the gruyere cheese with goat cheese for me. The negetive: 1. basic and simple, could be considered as a positive for some people. Bottom line: Why not?
Bubble tea (Vita in) with some of our class’ addicts:
The positive: 1. I like the tapioca bubbles. 2. the macha tea is nice. The negative: 1. the coco flavor wasn’t noticeable. 2. a much redundant amount of milk is bad for the stomach. For me in particular. 3. Quite pricey. 4.5 euro for the small glass. Bottom line: Nice to try once or twice, then preferably go back to a nice glass of wine.
Vietnamese soup in China town with Adrian and Shane:
The positive: 1. great flavor. 2. good value for a whole meal, for about 8 euro. The negative: far in china town, I have no Vietnamese place next to my house or school. Bottom line: I want to go back there. A lot better then the chinese soup, the broth is filled with flavors.
Thai dinner with Barbara and Shane at Thai Pacific:
The positive: 1. The beef salad and the saté beef were good. 2. menu of 17 euro. The negative: the soup wasn’t balanced, the chicken curry was too liquidy. Bottom line: Barbara promised to show us a better thai place. That still hadn’t happened but we hope it will soon.
Darnai, Korean restaurant with Shane:
Positive: 1. menu of 10-14 euro for 3 course meal + salad and the korean kimchi that are refilled! Good value! 2. A huge selection of dishes, we want to go back to try many more. 3. close to my apartment. 4. the sweet and sour turnip salad (one of the free salads) 5. an authentic feeling when everyone around us were actually korean people. The negetive: 1. some of the food was transformed from korean to something else: the salad, the cheese in the bibimbap. 2. Too oily. 3. it’s a kind of place you have to know what to order, the group next to us got nice plates we weren’t sure what they were. Bottom line: it’s like home cooking, fairly cheap, like going to eat some other family dinner. And the chilly sauce has a real addictive munch.
