Buba Bistrot Exotique

Every moment spent at Buba is a moment well spent.
I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love a good thai meal. Buba Bistrot Exotique is a fusion paradise, both aesthetically and food wise. Its thai based menu includes oriental street food from Thailand, Hong Kong and Vietnam and a selection of exotic, peerless cocktails.
Highlights: The open kitchen, the colourful garden and the private space with a ceiling full of paper lanterns.
My dinner included mango salad, veggie vietnamese rolls with chilli ginger sauce, dumplings with fish and shrimp in thai broth, fried shrimps in panko and vietnamese bbq marinated in fish sauce *drooling*.
I had three (THREE) Pablo Escobar In Thailand cocktails (tequila, aperol chilli, fresh lime, lemongrass aroma and chilli salt) and I would happily drink another three. As for that night’s soundtrack let’s say that Buba knows how to mix and shake up things, by transcending genres in a fantastic, unwonted way.

A long weekend in Belgium

It’s been four years since I last visited Belgium and five years since the first time, to spend a couple of days with my friends that live abroad. Who says this country is dull?
Locals always know the best places to visit/eat/drink.
The bloomed facade of Pierre Marcolini’s main store at Sablon -you know how I love his chocolate
and the mini ice creams that you can make as you wish.
The staircase of the house where we stayed.
Charming Gent and its gothic churches.
Amazing thai food at Premier Comptoir Thai.
I fell in love with Antwerp.
The Impressionism exhibition and the “A.Serrano:Uncensored Photographs” at the Magritte Museum.
The best traditional kitchen at “Le Pré-Salé”.
My beautiful friends.
