Arriba Arriba, the new Mexican hotspot in Amsterdam!

Are you ready for a new South American hotspot in Amsterdam? Arriba Arriba will open its doors on the Rozengracht on the 1st of February.

Arriba Arriba is a Mexican street food hang-out with South American influences. You can go here from noon for quick taco’s or to dine extensively, 7 days a week. All dishes on the menu are created for sharing. Perfect for two or with a large group of friends. Arriba Arriba is a concept created by the IQ Creative team, that also brought you Happyhappyjoyjoy. For the concept and interior, they have joined forces with architects Concrete and JPS.

the word streetfood or ‘antojitos‘  literally means cravings

A quick bite or a long meal
In a country where 50% of the population buys their food on the street, the word streetfood or ‘antojitos‘  literally means cravings. At Arriba Arriba you will have the option to go for a quick mean taco or lunch. All tacos are created with authentic Mexican tortillas from Taiyari and baked according to the method of the old Aztecs. The toppings vary, from crispy pescado with crispy cabbage and lime, to rib-eye with chimichurri and avocado, or pulpo ‘octopus’ with sweet potato and pickled onion. You will also find healthy salads, and other bites such as oysters on the menu.
Starters and main courses do not exist here, just pick and choose want you want to try. Good to know that all tortillas and tostada’s are gluten-free!  The menu also offers plenty of choice for vegetarians.


Mexican street food? Yes please!

A typical Mexican restaurant with a modern twist

Modern and Mexican interior
We haven’t seen it yet but word is that it’s going to look and feel like a typical Mexican restaurant with a modern twist. The inspiration for the interior comes from the Mexican architect Luis Barragán, who works a lot with color, light and shadow, without losing any subtlety. The elongated space on the Rozengracht will becomes an atmospheric and cheerful place with areas of color. The decoration will consist of modern objects and will be filled with natural materials such as cactus and rattan. It’s also going to be quite spacious as the restaurant easily seats 150 people and is also perfect for people that just want to drink a Mexican beer or Margarita.

We can’t wait to visit this Mexican hotspot!

Everything green at Matcha Bar in Amsterdam!

Amsterdam couldn’t stay behind, it’s Matcha everything at the new Matcha Bar and we love it! 

What is Matcha?
I first tried Matcha when I was in one of my healthy periods where I would try pretty much any weird superfood. I used Matcha powder in my smoothies but that was about it. I discovered it again when I was in Hong Kong several years ago. Matcha tea and Matcha coffee. I liked it immediately and noticed the little green stuff also gave me a boost, something that coffee does, but this boost felt a bit stronger. Ok, Matcha is something special I guess.


Matcha tea

So what is it? It’s finely ground powder of specially grown and processed green tea leaves. It contains both caffeine and theanine. This combination of chemicals is for the (calm) energy people might feel from drinking matcha. It originated in China but is used is many Asian cultures such as Japan.

Being the city of hotspots, Amsterdam picked up this trend  and The Matcha Bar opened their doors a few weeks ago. Here you can eat and drink Matcha until you see green. Literally.

What’s on the Menu?
Matcha Latte’s, tea’s (including Japanese bubble tea!), waffles, cakes (in all shapes and sizes), pastries and even Matcha pudding. You can feast your eyes on the green stuff and the funky pastel coloured interior. Come inside, grab a seat or take out. 


Yes please!

More Tasty Hotspots?

 

According to Google, these Destinations will be hot in 2018

Good old Google. They know everything about us, well almost. They monitor our behaviour, and know exactly what we clicked on, for how long and where they loose us. Whatever you may think of it, our behaviour can also predict the way we are traveling and will travel in the near future. Every year Google releases a Year In Search data report and when it comes to travel related searches, you can see which destinations are growing popularity.

While this year, destinations like Morocco, Iceland, and Bali took the lead, we have some new contenders for 2018!

1. Taiwan
Why the hell not actually! Taiwan hasn’t really come to mind immediately but thinking about it, this destination is totally stunning. The small island on the South East coast of China has national parks, cute teahouses and skyscrapers. Perfect for a couple of days exploring. Will this be the new Hong Kong for 2018?

2. Barcelona
Still one of the best cities in the world (we always go back there once a year!). There is a beach, the food is seriously addictive and it’s always warm. Even though there was a terrorist attack, it doesn’t stop people from going here. Next year, it will be populair once again.


One of Europe’s most popular city

3. Hawaï
More and more people are looking for paradise and Europeans are looking into Hawaï like crazy. We don’t blame them. Tropical forests, wonderful people and stunning beaches and reason enough to book your ticket.

4. Las Vegas
Vegas Baby! Maybe it’s hard to believe but people are actually looking to explore a little outside Las Vegas too. Did you know that there are some of the most amazing canyon’s out there? You can combine a few days of craziness with a couple of days roadtrippin’ and hiking.


Dreaming of Hawaii? Photo by @travelinhershoes

5. Hong Kong
People go here for the nightlife, food and impressive culture. Sarah is visiting Hong Kong this January and I have been there a few years back. 

6. Oman
We’ve seen Morocco, we’ve seen Dubai. People are ready for another beauty and next year it might be Oman.

7. Maldives
For all the couples out there, this is heaven. The economy is growing again (at least in some countries), and people want to treat themselves. The Maldives is the perfect place to do that.

8. South Korea
In early 2018, the Winter Olympics will be held here. Tourism will pick up and it’s no wonder that Google has tracked these numbers. But besides that, South Korea is diverse and the airport is close to town. The food is super innovative and goes from high end to briljant street food.


The food in South Korea is something special

9. Myrtle Beach
Sat whaat? This is a coastal town in South Carolina and popular with families. Why? Along its beachfront boardwalk are arcades, souvenir stands and restaurants and an amusement park by the sea that includes the larges ferris wheel of the country. This search was extremely popular for the States.

10. Hamburg
We’ve heard it many times last year; Hamburg is the new Berlin. With the new Elbphilharmonie building, this harbour city made a comeback and is here to stay in 2018.


Industrial and cool, hamburg will gain popularity in 2018

Destinations we think are going to be hot in 2018?
Well, a little bit different than what Google says but here’s what we think:

1. Mexico
This is because we’ve seen soooo many influencers going there the past year. They have planted the seed and have inspired many around the world to go here.

2. Malta
This tiny little island is located at the end of Italy’s boot and is perfect for a quick getaway. Mind you, Malta doesn’t have a lot of beaches but it certainly has a lot of culture to make up for it. To read more about Malta, check out this quick guide.

3. The Nusa’s
Our guest editor said it; she cheated on Bali with the Nusa’s and we think you are going to do the same. Get away from the tourist overload on Bali and check out these pretty islands. For pictures and tips check her article.


Cheating on Bali with the Nusa’s?

4. Georgia
We haven’t been but heard so many great stories about this hidden gem. It’s the kind of destination where you say; “wow, I didn’t realize it was this beautiful!” Mark our words.

5. Hawaï
Yes, we agree with this one! Like Google, we think this destination will be explored more than previous years.

So where are you heading in 2018?

Love,

Elke

The Antwerp City Guide by Wander-Lust

If you live in the Netherlands, Antwerp is the perfect place to escape to for a city break, especially during the wintertime! We’ve been there many times and checked out some of the best spots for you to enjoy food, drinks and more. Here’s our Antwerp City Guide!

How to get there
Well, you have 2 options and they are both as easy. You can take the train or you can go by car. Both options take around the same time (2 hours) but we prefer the train because you can chill, look out of the window and you will arrive at one of the most beautiful and impressive trains stations in Europe. A  return train ticket from Amsterdam to Antwerp will cost around 30 -40 euro. If you go by car, you might arrive earlier but if you are unlucky, you will get caught in slow traffic and your trip might take up to 3 hours plus you will have to pay for parking.

“This Antwerp City Guide is for wanderers who love food, shops and exploring”

Antwerp City Guide

Where To Eat?
The most important question of course! Well, in Antwerp you won’t be short of food choices. Especially lunch! There are so many hotspots around that we can’t mention them all, but these are our favorites!
» Tinsel, some say that you can get the best breakfast in town here. Tinsel is located near the water where you will find tons of other restaurants. www.tinsel.be
» Native Bio Bistro, This hidden pearl is by far our favorite lunch spot in Antwerp. This bistro serves fresh, original, and good quality food. It’s organic, locally produced with sustainable ingredients, this is Native! Vegan and organic food lovers will love this place! During the summer they open a very nice terrace. www.native.bio
» Bubble Waffle, located in the Mercado foodcourt, this tasty waffle stand awesome! Go here if you feel like something sweet. www.bubblewaffle.be
» Divers, a smoothie-bowl bar for your healthy cravings. Great for some Instagram worthy pics, if that’s what your after. They are located in the Volkstraat 9.
»De Broers van Julienne, when we need to grab a quick and healthy bite, we go here. In a side street of the Kammenstraat – with lots of boutiques – you will find this small cute little restaurant. You can take away the best quiches, soups,  salads and other warm healthy dishes. Besides that, they sell oil, wine, coffee, juices and other delicatessen. They  also offer catering and cook workshops.
» Raw Salad Company, unfortunately they’ve closed their doors in Antwerp but they promised to be back soon with a new location. The name gives it away. Raw salads galore. The salads are extremely tasty and fill you up enough to get on with your day. They also sell juices, wraps, cakes and other healthy snacks. We will keep you updated if they open a shop.
» Umami
, fine dining Japanese style. They restyled not long ago and you can eat amazing Dim Sum here. www.umami-antwerp.be

» Il Famosi, this is by far the best Italian restaurant in Antwerp. Go here for a romantic dinner and if you want more than just pizza.

Where To Drink Coffee?
» Mirlo’s, the coffee is great and the location is cute. They also serve breakfast and lunch and it’s all homemade. www.mirlos.be
» Buchbar, surrounded by literature and stories, this coffee bar is different than others. Owned by actress Kim Hertogs, you can feel the passion for books, women empowerment and people. Find more info about this special spot on their website.
» Butchers Coffee, located in a former butcher, this trendy coffee bar takes the coffee business serious and are planning to create their own coffee blend. If the sun is out, you can sit outside on the benches. You can find it on the Kasteelstraat 57.
» Caffenation, self blended coffee and probably the oldest one in Belgium as they started more than 13 years ago. Besides the coffee it’s also a shop and a great place to hang out. www.caffenation.be
» Texas Coffee, for pink latte’s and coffee served in an ice-cream cone!

Where to Shop & Stroll?
You have many options in Antwerp when it comes to shopping. No matter what type of person you are, there will be a shopping district that will suit your needs. We have selected 3 area’s that we love.
» Kammenstraat & Kloosterstraat, these 2 streets in South Antwerp offer vintage, exclusive boutiques, living and alternative shops. While most shops are closed on Sunday, the kloosterstraat is one of the only streets open from around 12pm.
» Het Eilandje, this is especially great during summer because you can find a lot of outside patio’s here. Worth mentioning is the MAS Museum where they have many exhibitions on display. The museum is set next to the little harbor and owns a large rooftop which has free entrance.
» De Volkstraat, go here for boutiques, concept stores, perfume and coffee.

» The Meir, this is Antwerp’s highstreet. Although it’s not our favorite place to shop, we need to mention it because here you will find all the shops you need. From Zara, Mango, Levi’s, it’s all here. The street is beautiful but always busy. Watch your purse and don’t stay too long!

Where To Sleep?
Somehow we always end up in the same hotels. Never change a winning team! These are our 3 favorite places to stay.

» Hotel Franq, is a new kid on the block and super cool! Just recently opened in October, the building used to be a bank and you can still find the big safe intact which is now being converted into a gym. When you enter the impressive foyer, you almost forget you set foot in a hotel. The rooms are stylish and have a large bathroom with rain showers. When it’s nice weather, you can sit outside in the garden overlooking an old victorian house. www.hotelfranq.com

hotel-franq
Hotel Franq

» Hotel Les Nuits, we love boutique hotels and this hotel is one of the cutest ones out there! All 21 rooms are designed a bit different but have the same style and feature impressive en-suites. They have recently changed their reception area and removed their suites rooms which is a shame because I really loved those but this way the hotel is more compact and fits better together. Breakfast is great and the location is great! Book a room here!

» Banks, another great hotel at a very central location. It’s modern and a great place to meet people downstairs. Oh, and they also have a rooftop terrace so this is a great option during the summer. Then again, you will be out exploring Antwerp..;-) Book your stay here.

So are you planning your next tip to Antwerp yet? 😉

Wanderlust Barcelona Guide

Back in Amsterdam » Modern Asian Cuisine, Umami by Han

If you love Asian food, you’re going to be pleased about the return of Umami by Han in Amsterdam. The restaurant concept was first brought to live in Utrecht with then many restaurants to follow. Amsterdam used to have a all you can eat location on the Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal but this closed 2 years ago due to a difference in vision between Michelin chef Han (known from Michelin Star HanTing Cuisine in Den Haag) and his business partner.

The Concept
Now, Han’s original concept returns  back with the modern Asian dining experience that is all about the Umami philosophy. The word Umami is all about keeping different flavours in balance. The tastes of sweet, salty, bitter and sour are familiar to us, but there is a fifth taste we can perceive with our tongue, umami. Its taste has been described as rounded, rich and savoury. It’s usually matched with salt to add depth and complexity to foods that may lack depth and complexity on their own. “If you take ginger for example, your body actually needs something to balance it out, this could be cucumber.” We try to implement this to all our dishes” Chi, the restaurant manager tells me.

The Overtoom
The location is something you may have been before. At the beginning of the Overtoom, where concept store Friday Next used to be. They have completely changed it and you won’t believe your eyes. The restaurant is deep and spacious, with a Asian style bar at the entrance. The open kitchen looks amazing and the latern lights plus Asian wall art completes the look & feel. The restaurant is also open during the day for a quick business lunch or à la card meal, but you can also walk in for a coffee or glass of wine.

The Menu
You can choose between the 3-course Social Dining Menu for €27,50 or the Menu Gastronomique for €31,95. You can find signature dishes like Teriyaki Chicken, Bangkok Prawns or Orange Duck, alongside Truffle Paksoi, Spicy Eggplant or Little Gem. You can order an extra course for an additional 8 euro per dish. Deserts are available for only €5,- and the menu consists of Matcha Cake, Pandan Créme Brûlée or a Choco Brownie, yum!

Must visit store, DIY Soap

Hello winter equals hello to dry skin. For me at least. As soon as the heating at home goes up, and the leaves are starting to fall down the trees, my skin reacts as if it knows it needs some extra attention. There are sooo many products and brands out there that promise you a soft skin but I’m not a big fan of all the chemicals that are added. Gladly I discovered this briljant store called DIY Soap, a shop in Amsterdam where you can create your own scrubs and creams made out of natural and organic ingredients.

DIY Soap

Pure Ingredients
At DIY Soap you can shop in two ways; you can buy a ready-made scrub or cream, or create your own from scratch. The last option is more fun so that’s exactly what I did! In the store you can find a rack where you can find cans of oils to create your product with (coconut, almond, olive). Next to that you have a table where you can find salts, sugars, coffee and concentrated oils such as lavender, orange or roses. Pimp your product with some flowers, dried fruits or lavender pieces. Every product is vegan except the honey. (but rest assured it comes from a local and organic beekeeper).

diy soap products
The corner of ingredients!

Final touch

Sustainable Packaging
One of the great things about creating your own product, is that you can bring your own packing materials. DIY Soap highly encourages to re-use your old shampoo bottles or cream containers. The packaging at DIY Soap is made out of glass and is always re-usable. This way, you only need to come back for the ingredients! You can also buy the products online (www.diysoap.nl) and in several stores across The Netherlands and Belgium (concept store Hutspot being one of those).

The people behind the product
besides the ingredients and packaging, they also have a great behind-the-scenes-story. The people who make the ready-to-buy products are created by people with a minor mental disability, at the Gemiva centre in the city of Leiden. How beautiful is that!

GIVE AWAY!

The Wanderlust Coffee Scrub with coffee and sugar to wake up your skin and soften your face with. And the Goodnight Wanderlust Scrub with lavendel, almond oil and roses. Want to win these? Just comment below and I will notify the winner next week!

Hotspot: De Utrechtse Boekenbar

Close to the lively Ledig Erf in Utrecht is a new coffee bar/bookshop; De Utrechtse Boekenbar. It’s a shop where you can buy interesting books and drink a cup of coffee while reading your new book purchase.

Founder Tim van den Hoed started a crowdfunding campaign to make his dream Book-Bar become a reality. Because he’s born and raised in Utrecht, he felt like this was the city where he wanted to open the Boekenbar. Utrecht is also a cultural city with many music, art and book projects. Van den Hoed wanted to create a space with ambiance where both the coffee and the book assortment were good. De Utrechtse Boekenbar is quite unique because of the combination of interesting and special books and the possibility to have a drink at the same place. You can come here for novels, travel books, cookbooks and table photo books. All are displayed with the front faced forward. 

Utrechtse boekenbar

More than just a bookstore
The Utrechtse Boekenbar is a place for everyone. You can meet up with friends but the bar is also suitable for studying. The shop is sleek, with a comfortable sitting area and a wide range of books and a simple café. Books are both available in English and Dutch and the assortment is not very standard as you may expect. Your attention is immediately drawn to all the fascinating book covers that are placed around the store.

Koffie bij de Utrechtse Boekenbar
And yes, they serve good coffee at the Utrechtse Boekenbar!

You can also buy a variety of stationary items and at the bar you can enjoy a coffee, ice tea and (homemade!) cookies and pies. Tim is at the shop six days a week and pretty much runs the shop on his own. But he’ll always goes out of his way to have a small conversation about the store, and give you the best book recommendations! So if you’re searching for a new book and combine this with a nice cup of coffee, go to De Utrechtse Boekenbar!

Our favourite Veggie Pita spot in Amsterdam is now open daily!

If you’ve been to a Dutch food festival or the Sunday Market, you must have heard of Vleesch noch Visch. This famous veggie stand is one of those places you keep coming back for. They started off with a tiny stand on food markets and expanded over the years where they opened a kiosk in Amsterdam West, near the Westerpark. Good news for those who can’t wait for the weekend, they are now open daily from 12 till 9pm!

Veggie pita Vleesch noch Visch
The famous Greek veggie pita 

Vleesch noch Visch became famous because of their Greek veggie pita that has people queuing up for. At the kiosk they also offer other meals such as a Mi Gado pita, fries, soups and salads. Vegans don’t worry, most meals are easily turned into vegan. There are tables and benches to enjoy your favourite meal at, and you will find that people from all over the city come here for a bite. I have been a fan since the beginning but now that more people starting to embrace vegetarian and vegan meals, this place is set to be even more popular than ever.

Happy eating!

The new Corner Bakery is open and it’s amazing!

Freakshakes, healthy bowls, pancakes, colourful cakes and a brand new location in Amsterdam West. The new Corner Bakery is open and it’s awesome!

If you like taking pictures of your food, this is the place for you. The Corner Bakery already has a location near the museumsquare in Amsterdam, but because of the line of people and popular demand, they have just opened a new location across the World Fashion Center in Amsterdam West. This location is larger and spacious that includes an outside terrace.

The interior is a combination of sweet, fruity and pastel. Pretty flowers give the location the final touch and the wooden counter makes it feel like a bar in the tropics. At the counter you can also find THE cakes. Let’s talk about this for a second. These cakes and not just any cakes. Nope, these ones are specially made by the girls of The Life of Pie. Almost pretty to eat! Almost.

Other food on the menu consists of bread rolls with avocado, salmon, BLT or you can pick one of the salads. The best thing however, is the breakfast. You can order it all day and there are so many options! Red velvet pancakes? Eggs Benedict? Bali & Acai bowls? It’s all there. Oh, and don’t forget about those crazy freakshakes that include a sprinkled doughnut!

Be sure to reserve a bit of space in your stomach, because you are going to order more than you came for.

Dr. Pieper » The Coolest Snackbar In Amsterdam?

If you’re close watcher, you might have seen this new spot in one of our articles last week where we tipped it as one of the newest hotspots for this month. A little introduction; in the Netherlands we love potatoes. I mean, seriously, love love it. We boil them, bake them, mash them and of course fry them. Fries are immensely popular with the Dutch and you can find a fry shop, as we call them, around every corner. So this is where Dr. Pieper comes in. Dr. who? Let me explain..

The Story
Dr. Pieper is a scientist who is completely obsessed with the potato. He lost both of his parents and started to dig into the mystery where his parents worked on (whatever that mystery was!) After university and part time jobs as a doctor and bookkeeper on Amsterdam’s Red Light District, Dr. Pieper left for South America. No one has heard anything from him since then. With the exception of Jelle Westland. Jelle met the scientist and discovered some of the mystery. Convinced of Dr. Pieper his own vision ‘With Quality You Will Always Save’, Westland began the eccentric fries shop on the Kinkerstraat in Amsterdam. This first branch will support the further research of Dr. Pieper, plus donates a part of the profits to Return To Sender. Westland’s dream to offer the best and most special fritters in the Netherlands (and the world!) is about to come true..

If this Dr. Pieper really exists is anyone’s guess, but one thing is for sure, the eccentric fries shop is open for business!

Dr. Pieper
The one and only, Dr. Pieper

Dr. Pieper
Floating potatoes and industrial interior makes the story of Dr. Pieper complete

On the Menu
Fries. Obviously, but we didn’t need to tell you this. What makes the menu extra special are the homemade croquettes, with vegan and vegetarian options. All fried in coconut oil. The sauces are also homemade and you can order truffel, peppadew, and basilicum mayonaise. Sounds good right? Well, I had a little taste and I particularly loved the vegetarian sweet pepper croquette. Meat lovers can feast on the sweet pulled chicken or Indonesian beef stew. But one of the really cool things Dr. Pieper is going to offer, is à la minute fresh nitro oxygen Ice-Cream. The whole shop looks like an experimental lab with potatoes floating around in watertanks and industrial seats. There is even a jellyfish tank and robot-like-clamps are there to hold your bag of fries.

Fries at Dr. Pieper

Dr. Pieper will officially open on the 14th of October but you can already walk in for a sneak peak and a little taste. Will this be the coolest fries shop in the Netherlands? I think so.

Love,

Elke
