I’m certainly not the one who’s going to deny that!
Today I’m introducing you to the best burger joint in Brussels, and it’s opening TO-DAY!
It’s a very nice place, very american (how could I not fall for it), they make delicious juicy burgers, the staff is adorable, they have an home made ice tea, and even a dark and stormy cocktail! Let me tell you, I don’t need anything else to make this one of my new headquarters in the city.
I had the opportunity to try it yesterday, and I found it super super yummy. Even the fries are delicious (sometimes, burger restaurant forget to pay attention to the fries, when actually oh-so important!)
Here so pics of the place
A glimpse of the burger’s menu:
- EMPIRE CHEESEBURGER: Compté AOC or Cheddar, Manhattn’s signature sauce
- ROCKFELLER BURGER: Crispy Bacon, Smoky BBQ sauce
- GATSBY BURGER: Seasonal mushrooms, truffle glaze
- SOHO SALMON BURGER: Salmon, salsa verde
- TRIBECA CHICKEN BURGER: Chicken, guacamole
- BROOKLYN VEGGIE BURGER: patty veggie, basil emulsion
And what about the drinks you say?
Wanna know something exciting (that I find exciting at least) you get those buzzers you often get in the states, that buzz when your food is ready! How fun?
Since I’ve had a hard time shooting photos for the blog lately, one of my best options is to share with you photos taken of me during different events.
Today it will be the photos of the LOVE party which is a new concept of parties in Brussels. Organized by the talented Attar! it could only be great. Amazing location (Cercle de Lorraine), great staff and really cool music. The people attending the party was pretty cool too.
All in all it was a LOVEvely party.
Let’s not forget to mention the amazing photographer, Matthias Maselis (who else!?)
I was wearing an H&M TREND dress, ZARA heels and H&M clutch
Book the next date in your agendas: December 5th
As you can see, I really like tutus. And here we go again but with a new one. This time I wanted to go with black. What do you think?
Monday was also the 4th bday of the blog, ALREADY! Can you believe this? I really can’t! No better way to celebrate it than dressed like a princess, right?
Wearing: AMERICAN APPAREL body – UNKNOWN BRAND tutu (found at the dance store DANCE WORLD) – ZARA shoes – MAC MEDIA lipstick – FOREVER21 necklace
Here is the outfit I wore yesterday. Sadly the days are getting colder and the clothes are starting to pile up on my body.
The good news is as from next week you will see more post on the blog! Aren’t we excited!?
Wearing: CAROLL sweater – ABBEY&ROSE men shirt – SEE YOU SOON pants – VAGABOND shoes
I want to apologize for being so absent on the blog lately. I’ve actually had a lot of trouble with my apartment that I tried to fix, then realized I couldn’t. I then tried to make my landlord fix it. Then it all became just really complicated.
I’ve had really STRONG humidity in my apartment for the past two months. Which includes mold on my clothes, on my matress,… The smell in my apartment was awful and the situation just unbearable.
I recently found another place to sleep because it wasn’t healthy to stay in the apartment, but still haven’t completely moved out yet, and I still need to fix a few things with my landlord.
Why am I telling you all of this? Because I spend my mornings packing/unpacking, at the town all, writing emails, my days at the shop (Lady Dandy), and my nights packing/unpacking again.
I’m really sorry but I’m not letting you down, and I’ll pick up the blog as soon as the situation gets better!
What’s up? I do hope you’re doing a lot better than me! I have so many things I need to deal with right now, and to be honest, it’s not the funniest things. It definitely shows in the lack of posting. For various reasons, sometimes I don’t have time to write the post, sometimes I have no one to take my picture, and sometimes I just look like shit haha!
Anyway, I did a little improvised shooting on saturday night, at the Bday party of my ex roommate. He probably has the coolest door opener I’ve every seen, so vintage! It then took the opportunity to take a few pictures with it.
Wearing: ZADIG&VOLTAIRE top – FOREVER21 bra – FILLES A PAPA shorts – NIKE shoes – ASOS bow
This year again I had the opportunity to have a delicious meal in the air.
It was my second experience at Dinner in the Sky (click here for my first time), thanks again to Fromages de Suisse. Our delicious meal was cooked by Pascal Devalkeneer, and let me tell you, that guy is a genius!
From now on, I’ll just let the pictures speak. Some of them are from me, the others from triptyque.be
Let’s have a look at our menu:
Fondue de Taleggio Grissini à la poudre de tomate – Emincé de lotte fumée à l’eau de tomate Huile d’olive noire et herbes sauvages – Bœuf mariné arabica
Œuf poché crème de cèpes
Copeaux de Gruyère d’Alpage AOP & Truffes d’été
Poitrine de volaille Riviera Flan de courgette farcie et calamar
Selection of Swiss Cheeses
Tiramisu à notre façon
Snapshots from the Sky
Many thanks again to Sparkies and to Fromages de Suisse for inviting me!
Today I want to share with you one of my last discoveries in brussels: King Kong.
It’s the new peruvian fast food located on chaussée de Charleroi (super close to my place AND my work YAY!)
I’m a big fan of south american food, and it’s usually super hard to find in Brussels, thank god they opened.
The place is super nicely decorated (super modern, with some exotic touches, I love it!) the staff is really adorable, and the food is clearly amazing! (I actually went there for lunch today!)
I always get the Chicharron sandwich (which is a burger with crispy pork breast) and oven potatoes with a delicious sauce.
The King Kong effect on my and my friends during our first visit…
227 Chaussée de Charleroi – 1060 Saint Gilles
Day two of WECANDANCE with a shitload of pictures.
Lots of them have been taken with my disposable camera (I LOOOOVE the effect it gives to the photos), others by Alex Iberico for Bloody Louis, Matthias Maselis (aka MM Whiskey hangover), or by friends.
I was wearing a flower crown nicely gifted by Cabinet de Transformation (let me tell you that I don’t get tired of it and want to wear it every single day!). For the rest of the outfit, it was especially to prevent me from the cold wind. Besides my little chain belt I found at a costume shop in Brussels and my funky thaï inspired bag I brought back from…IBIZA!
Showing off my LACLAIRE tattoo
It may sound wierd, but I love this picture way too much!
And right there it ends, but we have our memories, we have our pictures, to remind us this fabulous weekend.
WECANTWAIT for 2015!
I’ve been wanting to share these photos with you since a few days… But I was still waiting for other pictures to come out. Which they still haven’t so I’m going to do it anyhow.
I went to WCD on saturday, but arrived late (sadly), enjoy the last two hours that where magnificent! Then went to the afterparty, got some sleep, and was back at the festival on sunday early afternoon.
WHAT A WEEKEND, let me tell ya!
I consider it as a very « girly » festival. Everything looks beautiful, from the decoration, to the food, the drinks or the people… Yes the people! There was a theme, « egyptian », and so many of the attendees dress according to it, it looked amazing! (Even without that, I don’t know how that’s actually possible to have that many good looking people in one festival… anyway)
It was in the sand! No worries to get dirty! (happy me)
The food looked insane, sadly I didn’t think of getting any before sunday night, and sadly at the point they had closed everything up because of some security issues DUH! It was far from being the greasy things you usually find in festival. It looked refined, healthy and super yummy. Bummer!
Last but definitely not least, they had a Gin Bar! How fun right? Served in big classes and not in plastic cups. Super superficial right, but we love it!
Now, let’s just let the pictures speak for themselves
I really wanted to dress like an indian. Even though the theme was Egyptian… whatever!
Hey! Looks like there’s another indian around here
Of course it’s my friend! We do have to agree, his headpiece is a lot better than mine… Thanks to Cabinet de Transformation!
Just in case you’re wondering, I did get attacked by a lot of people who were jealous of my indian hat…
Meet me tomorrow on the blog for day 2!
Pictures taken by Lastnightparty, or friendly people with my disposable camera (aka the first pic)
