Consuming food is an important activity while Family Bonding.
Coming from the Land of Chopsticks, Sushi, Sashimi
and Slurping Noodles....we noticed:
#Food is knife and fork work, one can go fast and eat a lot.
#All food is served like Mountains...
#It all taste so good and there is some much to choose from.
See here a few pictures taken during our visit to the Low Lands.
Food on your plate Marijke: Concentration, concentration!
This was in Brussels at one of the restaurants with an outdoor terrace.
First, the Mighty Three:
1) Hollandse Nieuwe Haring...
Wow, wake me up any time...
2) Bruintjes kaas.
Finding good whole wheat bread in Japan is almost not possible.
(well, for a price it is...)
Not even talking about Good Old Gouda Cheese...,
or goat cheese, or Edammer, or....cheese,
3) Stroopwafels with a cup of Good Dutch coffee...
Never ever do you eat only 1 wafel....
And there is more...
Witlof with some cheese cooked in the oven,
Stampot rauwe andijvie and verse worst.
Sssst: Family at Work
Chicken Curry Madagascar style.
Cooked mussels Brussels' style... portion is for 1 person!
Note the always and ever supplied french (Belgium) fries...
Hot Poffertjes with an extra portion butter.
And last, something that was almost like home-sashimi-home: smoked, raw and minced salmon, some ikura and zeekraal (kind of wakame).
Back in Japan...we're showing food-withdrawal symptoms,
and pfff, have an amazing amount of blubber to be burned off.
Where are my running shoes...??
