Rotterdam knows a lot of restaurants but there is one restaurant in particular that many people do not know about.
You will find this amazing restaurant at the ‘Wijnhaven 85’
ENJOY HANGAR 85 BAR & KITCHEN
Positioned in the stunning ‘Wijnhaven’ you will find the hotspot of Rotterdam, Hangar 85 Bar & Kitchen. Located next to the authentic Four Lion Bridge and the rippling water, the modern facade immediately stands out. The style of the interior is cool and yet warm and the open design makes you feel at ease immediately. The kitchen prepares classic dishes with a trendy twist. Hangar 85 is the place to be for a nice lunch, a relaxed and cozy drink or a nice dinner. You can also come to them with large groups. Do you have something to celebrate, business or private? They like to think along with you.
You are most welcome.
This stylish restaurant with its open and accessible interior is suitable for any company at any time of the day. Whether you have a business lunch, want a romantic dinner, or in the evening with a last drink at the bar, Hangar 85 is always the right place.
The quality of the products are on number 1 at Hangar 85. You immediately notice this with the sophisticated dishes and carefully composed wine arrangements. You do not eat a standard starter and dessert, but different small dishes to taste more.
So, this is truly amazing with your love, friends or family! Isn’t it?
The young and enthusiastic team cooks classic dishes with a modern interpretation. Choose some dishes from the menu yourself or be surprised by a four-five or six-course menu from the chef.
I love surprises so, I chose for the six course menu from the chef and of course they ask what you like or not like. There is only one thing I can say about, it was absolutely delicious!
As you may know I am a wine lover! Red wine or white wine it depends on the food.
This time I chose for white wine and it tasted so good!
This restaurant has style and at the same time a warm company! The young team is enthusiastic and feels very strongly about hospitality. As soon as you step into the restaurant, you will feel right at home. So quickly taste the dishes, or just come and drink a good glass of wine on the terrace.
So guys, don’t hesitate and book your table as soon as possible to try it yourself!
And forget the try out the delicious crème brûlée!
Why do we choose for the city center?
Rotterdam Noord is booming!
Brasserie Nieuw Noord is a stunning place for a delicious breakfast, lunch, dinner or just a drink!
The food is amazing and interior is absolutely adorable!
It’s a beautiful place to sit on the terrace and enjoy the lovely weather.
I love this spot in Rotterdam Noord!
I truly enjoyed the lunch and my coffee over here.
I love the interior and the people and could work with my laptop.
Last week I had a dinner date with a friend and we were both saying:
”Lets go to Brasserie Nieuw Noord”
We enjoyed our dinner and you know what? Finally we could hear each other..
The music is fantastic even as the volume of it.
And of course… the bar.. I LOVE IT!
So guys… if you are planning to have a breakfast meeting, lunch meeting, dinner meeting or just to grab a coffee. Go to Brasserie Nieuw Noord!
Lots of Love, Linda

From 12 people they prepare a menu.
The most of the time you’ll find me in Rotterdam, but don’t forget about the smaller cities!
You can read in one of my previous blogs that I had an amazing high-tea at Hightealicious.
This time I was invited for Coffeelicious.
Coffeelicious is such a lovely company. The amazing locations and the interior are so good that the coffee and cake are even better! The atmosphere is stunning!
They are located in 3 cities in The Netherlands but they have 4 shops. One shop in Breda, one in Rotterdam and two in Dordrecht. I’ve visited the one in Dordrecht. But as you know they have 2 shops there and the most beautiful one is the one which is located in the museum (Museum Huis van Gijn).
Forget about Amsterdam or Rotterdam, if you want to do sightseeing, go to the historical city ‘Dordrecht’. Of course you will be at the city center where all the shops are but this time you have to visit the area ‘Nieuwe Haven’ You can easily walk to this area from the main city center.
This coffeelicious is truly amazing because it’s located at the Museum ‘Huis van Gijn’ if you are interested in history you need to visit this place! Start first with a lovely cup of coffee and a delicious sandwich! If it’s nice weather (and yes guys, summer is here!!!) you enjoy your coffee and sandwich or something else of course outside in the beautiful garden!
They serve delicious cakes and coffees. Have a look at the menu below and remember, all cakes are homemade!
You can buy cakes by the piece in one of their Coffeelicious shops for at home. You can also order cakes for at home in advance by calling to your local Coffeelicious shop.
And of course, LUNCH!
They love ‘simple food, done well’. So do I! They buy their ingredients locally and choose only the very best to make sure they have a delicious menu all through the year. And yes guys, the food is delicious! They make everything ‘a la minute’ which means you will have to wait up to 25 minutes for your lunch when they are very busy but it will absolutely be worth the wait. Some things are just too good to rush.
SERVED DAILY FROM 11:00 – 16:30
Grilled chicken, bacon, cheese, herb dressing €8,50
Grilled vegetables with avocado & lemon cream (grilled chicken is optional 1,50) €7,50
I ensure you that you will have a lovely day if you visit this part of Dordrecht and have your lunch break at Coffeelicious in Dordrecht and of course the really interesting museum ‘Huis van Gijn’
Don’t forget… there is another Coffeelicious as well in Dordrecht which is located in the city center of Dordrecht. This is just a small shop without that beautiful garden which I explained before.
So there are two Coffeelicious in Dordrecht but I recommend you the one next to Museum ‘Huis van Gijn’
THE HOUSE AT THE NIEWE HAVEN 29 WAS BUILT IN 1729 ON BEHALF OF JOHAN VAN NURENBERG, A RICH REGENT. SIMON VAN GIJN, BUSINESSMAN, LAWYER AND COLLECTOR LIVED HERE FROM 1864 UNTIL HIS DEATH IN 1922. AFTER HIS ASSIGNMENT, HE GAVE THE HOUSE AND MOST OF HIS COLLECTIONS TO THE COLLECTIONS OF THE OLD-DORDRECHT ASSOCIATION AND PUBLISHED THE MUSEUM AS A MUSEUM TO TARGET.
THE CONDITION WAS THAT THE INTERIOR WOULD REMAIN IN TACT AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. IN 1925 THE HOUSE WAS OPENED TO THE PUBLIC. IN ADDITION TO INTERIORS FROM THE 17TH, 18TH AND 19TH CENTURY, THE MUSEUM HAS A COLLECTION OF ARTS AND CRAFTS, A TOY COLLECTION AND A LARGE COLLECTION OF HISTORY PRINTS, THE ATLAS VAN GIJN.

Last Friday (the 12th of May) it was my Mothers birthday!
And as you know, last Sunday (the 14th of May) it was Mothersday!
So time for Linda to organise something for her lovely mother!
A high-tea on Saturday!
A perfect day because it was in between the celebration days!
I chose for Hightealicious as this is a stunning place to have a lovely high-tea!
Hightealicious is a tearoom which you can find in the unique 18th century manor house, also a museum, on the harbour at Wolwevershaven number 9 in Dordrecht. Part owner and chef Joan bakes everything fresh every morning and the aroma of the freshly baked scones, soda bread and pastry welcomes you as you enter. Fresh teas have been especially selected for the guests by their tea sommilier. Apart from their Traditional High Tea they als have a Celebration High Tea for babyshowers, birthdays and hen parties.
Breathtaking view as you enjoy your tea. Hightealicious is situated where three big and one small river meet at one of the busiest shipping points in Europe.
I am in love with this tea room! It has a stunning view, the service is absolutely perfect and don’t forget about the food, it’s delicious!
I organised this together with my sis!
Mother & daughters high-tea!
We enjoyed it so much especially my mother!
She is the best! My lovely mother with her Indonesian roots! Her love, her support, her lovely food and so much more makes me the happiest kid in the world!
NEXT WEEK I WILL BE IN DUBAI AND I CAN’T WAIT TO BRING THESE LOVE THINGS WITH ME!

As you have read previously, I celebrated my Birthday there!
I made a reservation for approx. 30 people and they had a nice spot reserved for me at the bar. The service was extremely good! As the wine bottles were empty, there was already a new bottle! The friends who didn’t drink wine they could order their drinks at the bar! Very easy going and as I told me before, the service was good. They often asked me if everything was alright.
OH YEAH, IT WAS!
Every month they organise a party. So last Friday I was there with my lovely friend @urbanfitgirls! Talking, dancing, had some wine and cocktails! It was a fantastic night!
If you would like to have a lovely dinner please have a look at the Menu: FOOD MENU
I am already ‘Auntie Linda’ for my little niece Rosa! But my second niece is on her way and its almost time!
To surprise my sister, I organized a baby shower. Looking for the perfect gift? We gave her the sleepyhead! To be honest, don’t ask me advice for babies, because it’s not really my cup of tea! And that will remain equally as I want to have children as late as possible! Because I want to enjoy the ”without baby life” first and the fullest otherwise I will regret that later probably.
Although we gave her the amazing sleepyhead. Read all about on their webpage.
If someone would ask me to go to Barcelona today, I will go immediately with no doubt! This city has it all!
Great atmosphere, kind people, lovely weather, delicious food, amazing shops, good party places etc. etc.
As you can read in one of my previous blogs about Palma de Mallorca, you probably know that I am in love with Palma. Palma is small Barcelona. So that means that this is bigger and greater!!
Barcelona is great because it has a beach and great party places.
Long weekend is perfect. Arriving on a Friday and leaving on an early Tuesday morning.
Arriving on a Friday is always good…. Taxi to the hotel, shower and put some nice clothes on and go out for dinner and party.
OK, the hangover on Saturday morning will join you as well but no worries… Lot of coffee and breakfast places on every corner of the street.
Saturday is good for sightseeing; Sagrada Familia Park Güell, Casa Batlló, Camp Nou, Montjuïc, La Rambla and end up in the area ‘Barri Gòtic.
Have a good glass of wine with tapas and enjoy the people, the food and the weather.
Saturday night, go to Barceloneta (beach) and you’ll find bars and clubs.
Sunday…. Relaxing on the beach! Please keep in mind that it’s Sunday for the locals as well. So if you want to be sure of a sunbed put your alarm early and go sleeping on the beach!
I can eat this delicious food every day without getting bored of it.
Nowadays you have a lot of sushi restaurants and a lot of ‘All you can eat’ concepts.
But there is a difference between sushi and good sushi.
The ‘All you can eat’ sushi is great but please keep in mind that it’s just a factory. Sumo, Shabu Shabu and SushiPoint is just perfect for sushi at home or ‘All you can eat’ but if you really want to have good sushi please make sure that you go to a good restaurant of a good Japanese restaurant.
