FRESH FOOD CAFE

Fresh Food Cafe - Pic 5, 7

Marbellassa ensimmäisen päivän ruokailumme olivat sanalla sanoen floppeja. Jotenkaan emme kerta kaikkiaan onnistuneet löytämään Puerto Banuksen satama-alueelta laadukasta, tunnelmallista ravintolaa. Koluttuamme kortteleita puolisen tuntia nälkä ajoi meidät ruokapaikkaan, joka sitten myöhemmin osoittautui kovaksi pettymykseksi. Nälkäisenä ei vain tule tehtyä hyviä päätöksiä. Tilasin ravintolassa luottavaisena hummeripastan, josta ensimmäisen suullisen lusikoiduttuani muistin taas vanhan opetuksen; tilaa mereneläviä vain näihin erikoistuneessa ravintolassa tai ravintolassa, jossa voit olla varma kalan ja äyriäisten liikkuvan. Hinnakkaassa pastassa komeileva hummeri ei vain ollut tuoretta, ja vanhentuneen äyriäisen mauan myös maistoi. Toisena päivänä eksyimme kuitenkin Fresh Food Cafe -nimiseen lounaspaikkaan, josta sitten alkoikin matkamme kulinaristinen voittokulku. Fresh Food Cafe sijaitsee Nueva Andalucían alueella, ja se taitaa olla tähän päivään asti yksi parhaista lounastyyppisistä kahvila-ravintoloista, joissa olen koskaan syönyt. Itse valitsin listalta terveellisen superfood-salaatin, kun taas M päätyi tilaamaan herkulliset quesadillat.

The restaurant experiences we had during our first day in Marbella were flops, to say the least. Somehow we didn’t manage to find an intimate quality restaurant in the port of Puerto Banus. After roaming throught the streets for half an hour, hunger drove us to a bistro which then later turned out to be a great disappointment. When hungry, we simply don’t make the best decisions. In the restaurant, I trustfully ordered a lobster pasta and, after taking the first bite, I knew I had made a mistake. Only order seafood in restaurants specializing in fish and shellfish dishes, nowhere else. The pricey lobster was not fresh, and the rotten lobster meat didn’t exactly appeal to my tastebuds. The second day, we found a hidden gem called Fresh Food Cafe, which then turned out to be the beginning of our wonderful, culinaristic trip. Fresh Food Cafe is situated in the area of Nueva Andalucía, and it’s up to this day one of the best lunch places I’ve ever had the chance to experience. I myself chose a healthy superfood salad whereas M ended up ordering a dish of delicious quesadillas.

MY MONACO
Our lovely after-work with friends ended up lasting longer than expected, which is why I didn't have quite enough time to write this Monaco-post yesterday. Nonetheless, now it's time to say goodbye to the beautiful lilliput state with these final pictures, I hope you enjoy! I've always been in love with hot food. When dining at any sushirestaurant, it's really not uncommon to find me asking for additional wasabi for two, maybe even three times. Monaco did impress us with many aspects, but the selection of Japanese restaurants wasn't one of them. Maybe it was just that we were tourists and thus not familiar with the best sushirestaurants. Täs ...

POSTCARDS FROM HANKO
Hey peeps. Here's another compilation of summery photos we shot while enjoying the lovely atmosphere in Hanko! Heippa! Tässä toinen kesäinen kuvapläjäys ihanalta Hangon retkeltämme, olkaapa hyvät. Even though peonies have held on as my absolute favorite flower for quite some time now, hydrangeas can be found on the well-deserved second position on the list (now would be a great time to make notes, M). Just look at these stunners! Vaikka pionit ovat pitäneet pitkään pintansa suosikkikukkinani, hortensiat ovat nousseet viime aikoina hyväksi kakkoseksi (nyt olisi sopiva kohta tehdä muistiinpanoja, M). Katsokaa nyt näitäkin sinisiä kaunott ...

TEA TIME AT L’ADURÉE
So, finally we get to continue our Paris travel diary. This time, I've chosen these L'adurée photos to beautify this post. For our first night in Paris, we had chosen Semilla restaurant, situated in Saint-Germain-des-Prés area, as our go-to dinner place. If you find yourself in Paris and in need of an excellent restaurant, the exact adress is 54 rue de Seine. Semilla turned out to be a place we can unconditionally recommend! The food is cooked with Spanish influences and served with such kindness that I'd love to visit the place again as soon as possible. No niin, nyt pääsemme vihdoin jatkamaan Pariisin matkapäiväkirjaa, tällä kertaa L'aduré ...
