China food souvenirs: dried fruit

Mom is back in town! She has brought back sweets from China: dried persimmon, dried longan, dried grapes (aka raisins) and dried figs. Dried fruit is an excellent souvenir from China. Easy to take home, not that expensive and delicious. And if the home front doesn’t like it; more for you! Persimmon (Kaki in Dutch) […]

Real food diary + rant

So I started a real food diary a week ago. I want to know what I eat everyday, because it feels like I am cooking less and less. (More and more ordering food.) This diary is a nice outlet to draw roughly, not caring too much about looking pretty. As long it’s clear what the […]

Last eating day in Düsseldorf

Yaki-The-Emon For lunch we went back to Yaki-The-Emon for some sashimi and okonomiyaki. This place is really good, I like it better than Takumi. The atmosphere and food feel more authentic. Takumi is more branch food, it’s still good, but not so special anymore. I might be bias, because I also tasted the Takumi in […]

Food diary #2 ~ dentist and kimchi ramyun

Banana milk Today I went to the dentist to remove a second wisdom teeth, too much wisdom in my mouth. Now my mouth is tired and still a little numb. Can’t chew, too much effort. So I made a banana smoothie. Smooth and sweet. Recommended for when you can’t chew. Babies like it too. I […]
