After the best first day ever in Amsterdam flower shopping, we were ready for another day exploring the city of tulips and canals.
While we were putting together our itinerary for places to eat in Amsterdam, we came across Pluk. It’s one of those places that you cant miss while researching places to eat in Amsterdam, its totally insta famous
And for good reason. Pluk is this little cafe come shop in the 9 streets and serves fresh breakfast and lunches with a side of cuteness. Everything is not only gorgeous, but you can eat healthily here and not realise because it all tastes so good.
And for those (namely, me) who fancy something a little bit naughtier they have the most delicious freshly baked cakes!
Cappuccinos come with free love hearts and a baby stoopwafel! Thats me sold...

Pluk is definitely worth a lunch or cake stop. Id be sure to stick it on your itinerary
El hombre and I are total foodies, and are always looking for new places to try. Barcelona, has become somewhere that we've had some of our most incredible and interesting food experiences in. It seems to me that its a city totally on its gastronomic game right now.
Last year we had the most incredible experience at Moments, Mandarin Oriental. This year one of the new restaurants we tried was Lasarte
So far its been our experience that Spanish fine dining is manages to get the balance between elegance, refinement and guest comfortably perfectly right. Some Michelin star restaurants can be incredibly intimidating. But not Lasarte. You feel fabulously taken care of but also at ease enough to really enjoy the experience. Quite a rarity in a 3 Michelin star restaurant (Barcelona's 1st, I might add )
Each dish was not only absolutely beautiful, but beautifully presented. Even my cocktail was handcrafted right at our table creating quite the spectacle.
We started with Jalapeno foam with razor and liquorice Ice cream appetiser
For starter I chose the glazed hare ravioli with artichokes and black truffle. Simply put, incredible.
I think my favourite dish was the Smoked squid ink risotto and lemon seafood. It was absolutely incredible and surprisingly light
And if you are a truffle lover, than the White truffle curd cream, pear and hazelnut is your absolute dream come true. Probably one of the most unique deserts that Iv ever eaten...
And to finish, we were served the most beautiful petite fours. So beautiful hat we managed to squeeze them in! Mont Blanc, Catalan crem choclate and choclate crumble.
And just when I thought our experience couldn't get any better, we were invited to meet the chef and see the magic behind the scenes. Just the best experience ever!
I absolutely enjoyed our afternoon at Lasarte, and am sure you would too! Add it to your list pronto...
This week some friends and I headed into Puerto Banus to check out Rosa's cafe in search of flower walls and pink lattes. If you have ever been to Elan cafe in knightsbridge or Menagerie Manchester, Rosa's would be right up you're street! Only here you have the added bonus of the Spanish sun.
Despite to glorious sun we actually chose to sit inside, because it was too cute not to. Think flower walls, rose gold details and macron towers
There is something for everyone on the menu, from cakes & macaroons to smashed avocado and smoothies. I suppose it depends if you are being a food angel or devil...
We ordered rosa's lattes (pink of course) made even cuter with the prettiest of coffee art.
And Rosa's eggs - Two organic poached eggs with avocado, tomato and caramelised onion. Id never had caramelised onion with avocado before and it was a revelation. And special mention to the perfectly poached eggs.
