TBT – Karibu restaurant in Jambiani, Zanzibar

In Jambiani there are many beach bars and restaurants, I’ve tried a couple of them but my fav is still a local restaurant just 5 minutes away from the beach, it was awesome!

It’s called Karibu(which means welcome), if you ever visit Jambiani, you shouldn’t miss it. They make day menus every day and you need to reserve in advance. They even deliver food to your hotel if you don’t want to eat in the restaurant.

Waiting for food in Africa can take quite a long time, but you can pre-order it in most of the restaurants.

The owner guy was super nice. I didn’t dare to walk alone after dinner to where I was staying, he sent me back with motorbike. I was so touched. ^^

Inside the restaurant, rather simple but it’s the best one ^^

At night the light was dim, not perfect for food photos, but I took some anyway.

Tasty dishes! Later I went to West Africa and realised that the food in Zanzibar has much more variations.

I miss the restaurant and Zanzibar!

Have a good day.

Méert – High Tea Time!

Happy CNY! No big meal but why not treat yourself with nice pastries? It’s holiday time! High tea time.

Let me be a lifestyle blogger for one day! Have to find something “instagrammable”!

Méert is one of those lovely teahouses in Brussels that I always want to visit. Walked pass it a couple of times but it was always full, probably I always went at weekend, today I gave it another try and got empty seat, finally!

Méert is located inside Galerie du roi, next to the famous Galerie de Saint Hubert.

Looks cute from outside too!

You can buy their tea, chocolate, and other cakes.

Looks like it has a long history, since 1761!

Which one should I choose?

Inside there’s a cosy little tearoom.

Both cake and tea was great! Everything is so cute in this teahouse.

Check it out when you come to Brussels!

Sunset dinner in Yamoussoukro

I want to share some photos today at a small openair restaurant in Yamoussoukro, Côte d’Ivoire.

The restaurant is called Restaurant Chez Georges, Yamoussoukro, not far from the main street.

The most/only typical food besides grilled fish and chicken in Côte d’Ivoire. Was eating this the whole time and now I kinda miss it! The sauce is called Gombo (correct me of I’m wrong), it tastes so great and spicy, so you can eat it every day.

Sunset in Africa always looks great!

Back in Europe, starting a healthy lifestyle in 2019.

Finally back in Belgium. I put on 1.2 kg in West Africa… what?? I don’t understand it, maybe eating too many plantain chips and grilled chickens. I have to lose some weight by eating more healthy. Salad for a month now.

Born and raised in China, where you cook all the vegetables, even after 7 years living in Europe, I still can’t eat raw veg every day. What can I do then? Find a tasty salad dressing, this Wasabi&Ginger dressing is pretty good. I like it much more than the mayonnaise based ones.

Tomato, avocado, sweet potato and boiled chicken filet. Plus some lettuce and rucola.

Healthy I hope ^^

But, I felt so guilty again after a cup of glühwein. Since I missed xmas, I guess I’m allowed to have one.
