So, I’ve been scouring the city of good food and well, scouring is probably the wrong word to use here, as it’s everywhere, i mean – literally around every corner. There isn’t a block you can walk by that doesn’t have a bakery, or a chocolate candy store – not to be confused with a chocolate shop (which as far as I can tell just serves, hot warm, sippable chocolate… yeah like cocoa, but OBVIOUSLY not! Anyway, I’ve made it a mission of mine to try everything I possibly can over the next year, but hopefully not all at once, as I really would love to not come back looking it… 🙂 Things that i haven’t tried yet, but will and everytime I pass them on the street, walking by seems to be significantly harder and harder to do, include: warm, smell them across the cobblestoned courtyard, soft – plain, cream, strawberry or chocolate filled waffles; chocolate candy, belgian traditional plum colored thingys (see them everywhere, what are they?!); australian ice cream, cream puffs, french fries (which apparently originated here), beer, beer and more beer and a million other things. But, I kept passing soup restaurants and the other day just couldn’t resist. I walked into the first one I saw, got out my dictionary, looked up two words and I was sold on a soup – didn’t even bothered figuring out what else they had, there’s always next time. I just got a cup of it and it came with some bread and not to be cheesy, but seriously, it was utterly orgasmic. I just don’t know if I’ve ever had anything more tasty in my life – pumpkin-carrot curry soup with granny smith apples and the bread… the bread was like … cake, but better – I don’t even know what the place was called, but god help I will find it again! I love my new city.
