Best Beaches around the World

I’ve travelled a lot and seen a lot of the world. I’ve been to more than 50 countries already! I’ve also been to many beautiful beaches all over the world. After the best vegetarian dishes in the world, I’m sharing my choice of the most beautiful beaches in the world in this blog post. Bahama’s […]

Veggie restaurant in Eindhoven: Bij Albrecht

I discovered a new vegetarian restaurant in Eindhoven: Bij Albrecht. They’ve been open for 6 months now and are one of those restaurants that I really love. Mostly because they serve delicious vegetarian and vegan food but also because of the story behind it. Bij Albrecht is owned by young couple Manfred and Bernadette. He’s […]

Thrill Grill just opened up in Tilburg

You might already know hamburger restaurant Thrill Grill from Haarlem or Amsterdam, but they just opened up another restaurant in my new hometown Tilburg. I was really excited that something new was happening in Tilburg so I went there yesterday on their first night. You might wonder what a vegetarian is doing in a burger […]

Food bloggers tour: The Hague

Yesterday I went on a food bloggers tour in The Hague, the 3rd biggest city in The Netherlands. I already knew some nice food spots in The Hague but I discovered many new ones yesterday! The food blogger tour was organized by Anne Marie from My Happy Kitchen and she did a great job showing us […]

Just opened: Lab-44 in Zaandam

Zaandam is a small town on the other side of the IJ river from Amsterdam. Although tourists often go to Zaandam (there are still many old windmills there), locals often think it’s too far away. It’s quite a shame because it’s only a half an hour boat trip and there are a few nice food […]

My favorite food spots in Tokyo

The three main neighborhoods for foodies in Tokyo are Ginza in the East, Shinjuku in the West and Harajuku just underneath Shinjuku. In Ginza you’ll find many restaurants serving traditional Japanese food. You’ve got ‘Ramen Street’ in Tokyo Station and several different authentic restaurants underneath the train tracks running from Tokyo Station to Yurakucho station. […]

Best food spots and restaurants in Kyoto

Many restaurants in Kyoto lack an English menu and/or serve quite uncreative standard dishes. Luckily there are a few really nice food options in Kyoto. I’ve listed my favorites on this page, all the food spots and restaurants mentioned also serve vegetarian food. Nishiki market is a street filled with food stalls, it’s covered so […]

How the Japan Rail Pass works

Going to Japan anytime soon? I suggest you buy a JR pass! It’s definitely worth buying a Japan Rail pass if you intent to leave Tokyo. You’ll have to order this pass a couple of weeks before your trip (ours took about 8 weeks to arrive). For more information about the JR pass I’ve written […]

New travel blog: Japan

I’m in love with Japan! It’s such a wonderful country! It’s super safe to travel around, the people are almost uncomfortably friendly and it has a lot to offer. It has wonderful temples, delicious and affordable sushi, big cities, beautiful nature and if you visit during spring (like me) beautiful cherry blossoms! I’ve written down my […]

Healthy hotspots in the Netherlands

All my (healthy) food spots in Amsterdam can be found at: annetravelfoodie.com/Amsterdam, but I’ve also made a page about healthy lunchrooms and restaurants in other cities in The Netherlands. If you’re going to Arnhem, Breda, Den Bosch, Den Haag, Eindhoven, Leiden, Nijmegen, Rotterdam, Utrecht, Haarlem or Tilburg anytime soon: check out this page. If you have any […]

Scoop: new wine bar in Amsterdam!

I’ve got a scoop for you guys! A new hotspot just opened up in the city center of Amsterdam. It’s a place where you can drink fantastic wines and enjoy delicious culinary dishes. As good hotspots are sometimes hard to find within the canal belt I’m very exciting about this one! It’s called wijncafé Mulliner’s and […]

My 4 favorite food spots in Nijmegen

Nijmegen is the oldest city of the Netherlands and I’ve lived there for 7 years. I still go back occasionally to visit friends. I’ve always loved this city. It’s progressive, green and friendly. It’s not difficult to find a nice lunchroom or restaurant here, since there are plenty! On this page I’ve listed my four […]

Travelblog and video for Belgrade

It’s probably not the first destination that comes to mind when you’re planning a city trip. But we’ve already been to many cities in Europe and we wanted to go somewhere new. If you’re also into discovering new cities, or if you’re curious how our adventure in Belgrade was, you can watch my 1 minute […]

Lunch in Maastricht: Bijzonder

This week I’m sharing my favorite spots in Maastricht with you and today I’d like to tell you about my favorite lunch spot: Bijzonder. Bijzonder means special and that’s exactly what I think this restaurant is. The menu is special, but the story of owner Dimitra is also special. Whilst traveling in Asia, Dimitra decided […]

Pop up dumplings: Pinch

Catch them while you can! You’ve only got 2 more weeks to try the ‘dumplings without borders’ from Pinch-sum at the Conscious Hotel Vondelpark in Amsterdam! The veggie dumplings with spinach and feta are delicious and make sure you try their fried rice with asparagus as well! Need more food inspiration? Next door organic restaurant MOER […]

New: Restaurant MOER in Amsterdam

Last month organic restaurant MOER has opened up at the old tire changing station at the end of the Overtoom. They kept the look on the outside (big windows, lot of glass) but did a beautiful job re-decorating the interior with petrol colored walls, a square bar area and a semi-open kitchen. MOER is open for […]

Happy Italy

The first Happy Italy restaurant opened in Rotterdam about 5 years ago.  In the meantime they’ve opened several restaurants in cities like Eindhoven, Arnhem and my new hometown Tilburg. Last month they’ve opened two new restaurants on one day! One in Amsterdam and one in Den Bosch. If you live in the Netherlands chances are getting […]

My favorite hotel in Maastricht: Vaeshartelt

This is for sure the most beautiful hotel in Maastricht. It’s probably even the most beautiful hotel in the Netherlands! This hotel at the edge of Maastricht might be the most unique location where you’ll ever spend the night. Hotel Vaeshartelt is located in a wonderful green estate. The castle was build in the middle ages […]

Dinner in Maastricht: Ceramique

Ceramique is a sustainable restaurant that has been housed in a monumental building close to the Maas for over 20 years. Although they’ve been around for a long time they might be the least old fashioned restaurant in Maastricht. Besides meat and fish they serve many vegetarian and vegan dishes. Something that’s not easy to […]

Vegetarian food guide to London

I just came back from a trip to London. I always love being there! There’s so much to do and there are many, many restaurants. It might be difficult to find healthy, vegetarian (or vegan) options when there’s so much to choose from. That’s why I’ve listed my favorite hotspots on this page. All hotspots […]

New veggie hotspot in Amsterdam: Hearth

There’s only one thing better than a good vegetarian restaurant and that’s a good vegetarian restaurant with swings! Yes you’ve read it correctly, you can enjoy a cup of tea on a swing at new vegetarian restaurant Hearth. Or as it’s officially written: H/eart.h. Hearth is located at the Albert Cuyp market in Amsterdam and run […]

Japanese restaurant Sushilee

Ask anyone in Amsterdam about the ‘Zuidas’ and they’ll tell you it’s a business district filled with big offices. But there’s much more to the Zuidas area than that. I’m discovering more and more really cool places in that area, that are also open on Saturdays when the offices are closed. I already wrote about […]

Christmas Dinner Giveaway

December is a time of giving! I’ve teamed up with tapas restaurant Barça from Amsterdam to give away a Christmas dinner for two at their restaurant. Named after the city Barcelona, Barça makes you feel like you’re in this Spanish food paradise. I’m giving away a tapas Christmas Dinner for two to a lucky winner […]

My favorite food spots in Frankfurt

Many people visit Frankfurt for business. Since it’s located centrally in Europe, many conferences take place here. If you come in December you’re probably there to visit the Christmas Market. But also if you’re not there for business or the Christmas market, Frankfurt has some nice food options and quite some choices for vegetarians. I’ve […]

Hard Rock Cafe goes vegetarian!

The Hard Rock Cafe goes veggie! You might think of big chunks of meat when you think of the Hard Rock Cafe. But especially for Vegetarian Awareness Month they’ve created a vegetarian menu. This whole month you can enjoy several vegetarian dishes as well as veggie cocktails! The Hard Rock Cafe in Amsterdam invited me […]

New Travel Blog: Oslo

Last month I was on a citytrip to Oslo, the relatively small capital of Norway. Oslo is great for a weekend getaway in the summer. The city center is compact, the palace is centrally located and there are many musea to flee to when it’s cold or rainy. And of course: you can have a nice […]

Healthy lunch in Hoofddorp

Hoofddorp is a small town right between Amsterdam and Haarlem and very close to Schiphol. Its location is probably the only reason why  you’d ever find yourself there. Unless you like cheap clothes (Hoofddorp has a Primark), there’s probably not much to do for you here. That being said, people often book a hotel here […]

New Wagamama restaurant in Rotterdam

Wagamama is your go-to place for delicious Japanese food like Ramen, teppanyaki or donburi. From each type of meal they have several options, so you can choose whether you want beef, chicken, prawns or vegetarian. Their donburi is a delicious comforting bowl of rice that’s been steamed and fried and vegetables. Teppanyaki is a dish with […]

New Travel Blog: Vietnam

Vietnam is a very photogenic country. Or maybe my boyfriend is just a great photographer. Anyway, we really enjoyed our stay in Vietnam. We explored the north. We started in Hanoi, took a two day boat tour in Halong Bay and rented scooters in Sapa. You can read my travel tips and find out where […]

New Travel Blog: St Petersburg

It might be unusual, or original to say the least, to go on a city trip to St Petersburg in Russia. But I absolutely recommend it. It’s only a short flight from most European airports (less than 3 hours from Amsterdam for example) and now that the Russian Rouble has lowered in value, it’s very […]

New travel blog: New Zealand

New Zealand is without a doubt one of the most beautiful countries in the world. The only downside is that it’s so far away from pretty much every other country in the world that it will always take quite some time (and money) to get there.  On the other hand, that might be its charm […]
