Travel Journal: Nutella Birthday Pizza in Rome

I wasn’t sure what I would order as a birthday dessert in Rome, but I definitely gave it some thought prior to my arrival in Rome. When the evening of 14th of January arrived, after a full day of sightseeing, mum and I returned to our fave local restaurant spot and after dinner, ordered a Gluten Free Nutella pizza to share. This pizza was so simple yet so delicious! If you love pizza crust, and you love Nutella, and who doesn’t? – you will definitely enjoy this yummy dessert! Restaurant: Mama!

Travel Journal: Spectacular Gluten Free Tiramisu in Rome

New Day, New Dessert After ordering a gluten free pizza for breakfast, I noticed 2 beautifully freshed prepared tiramisus in the dispaly window and I ordered a slice before my breakfast pizza arrived. It was so good! The tiramisu had a light and fluffy texture and it was absolutely delicious! I’ve had tiramisu in a few different countries, but there’s nothing like enjoying an Italian dessert in the country of its origin. If you get a chance, you have to try freshly made tiramisu in Italy, it’s the best! 🙂 Restaurant: Mama!

Why you should eat at R’domus when in Porto

View of R’domus from the street During my first full day in Porto, after some sightseeing and a river cruise, I came across R’domus restaurant and I’m super happy that I did. There was a big sign on the street advertising their very affordable meal of the day which is what got my attention in the first place. Henrique, Paulo and Daniella, the three siblings that work at this local restaurant, are absolutely amazing! They really fed me well 🙂 In fact they fed me so well with their delicious food, I had to take dessert home, and that never happens! R’domus offers very tasty Portuguese food for a very low price. My suggestion for you is that you skip the little overpriced riverside tapas places and you come straight here for a proper full meal. You won’t regret it! You should most definitely order the Meal of the Day. There will always be some sort of delicious meat on the menu, and the day I visited, they had sausages, but since I don’t eat meat anymore, I went for their fried …

Pastel de Nata: Portuguese Custard Tart

We are having another rainy day here Porto today. It’s been raining almost all day long, but I didn’t let the rain keep me indoors. About 20 minutes after I left the apartment, I saw that my camera batteries were low. I turned back around to grab 4 AA batteries from the apt, when I noticed this cute little coffee shop on the corner of the street. I took a peak at the window display and thought that now would be a perfect time to try the famous Portuguese Custard Tart. I got it to go and had a first bite back at the apt. The Nata shares some similarities to a Profiterole, however I find the profiterole cream much lighter and subtle in taste, whereas the Nata is quiet rich in taste, has thicker consistency and is sweeter. The pastry itself is very similar to a pie. This delicious little gem of a pastry should most definitely be on your must try list when in Portugal. Pasteis de Nata is also called Pasteis de Belem …

Belgian Chocolates: Leonidas

When my brother asked me what I wanted from Belgium, I said Belgian Chocolates! And so I got exactly what I wanted. A tall plastic clear bag filled with 20 Belgian Chocolate Pralines by Leonidas. Looks can be quiet deceiving when it comes to this particular chocolate praline. At first glance they look as if they are solid hard, but one bite will prove otherwise. The first thing you taste is the smooth, silky, creamy rich, delicious filling which melts in your mouth. The quality of these chocolates is just superb. One of my first thoughts was How do people go back to standard grocery store chocolates after tasting these? My plan was to eat 1 chocolate a day, so they would last me 20 days, but of course I couldn’t just have 1. They lasted for only 3 days! If you are visiting Brussels, put Leonidas Chocolate Pralines on your list, for yourself & as a gift. Trust me, this are to die for! Belgian chocolate enjoys an enviable international reputation, thanks in particular to the …
