Salzbourg – Austria

21 juillet 2017 § Poster un commentaire

Birthplace of the genius Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and setting of the musical play « The Sound of Music » starring Julie Andrews, Salzbourg is a lively city to stop by when traveling to Austria. It is also the only place where you can find the original Mozartkugeln, the small chocolate balls filled with marzipan. They were created in 1884 by Paul Fürst.

KONOI: Hemp Mylk Bar in Vienna

13 janvier 2017 § Poster un commentaire

My friend and I were on our way to visit Belvédère and came across a small café with large windows and a very appealing interior. I really never thought I would find a hemp mylk bar ..in Vienna! We came back after our visit, very excited to taste it. In case you were wandering whether we went « high », I can tell you that we didn’t. Hemp is still a source of controversy as it is assumed that this plant has the same effects as marijuana (they share the same scientific name of Cannabis Sativa), but they are two distinct varieties. You can find all the information on the Mylk Bar’s website herehemp_hulled_milk_bar_vienna_wien_best_vegan_sugarsheet_travel_austria

I already saw Hemp mylk on store shelves in New York but they were containing additives+thickeners and was not very thrilled to try these versions. Hemp is particularly interesting for vegans and vegetarians because of its rich nutritional values: it contains the good fat -omega 3, and all of the 9 essential amino acids, which makes it a really good source of plant based protein. In France you can find hulled hemp in organic stores (to sprinkle in your salads, soups..) and in the US, it is sold as a superfood in powder and oil.Konoi_hemp_milk_bar_vienna_sugarsheet_vegan_protein_best.JPG

You can guess, as a specialized mylk bar, it is freshly made every morning by Benoit and Kumiko, the adorable owners who are from Geneva. The menu is all about that magic plant: in smoothies, shakes, coffee and dishes: wraps, salads. If you just want to try the mylk, choose the « original », lightly sweetened with dates and a nutty flavor. hemp-milk-bar_sugarsheet_vienna_vegan_vegetarian_travel

Maybe in the future they will expand their menu with desserts made with hemp flour? Looks like possibilities are endless!

Le Bal – Paris

8 novembre 2015 § 3 Commentaires

Left in abandon for decades, the City of Paris has decided in 2006 to renovate the space and transform it into a photography gallery. It is hard to believe that there is such place in this area: a children playground is facing the modern building and the surroundings are mostly kebab joints and clothing shops. Sugarsheet Le Bal Paris Impasse La Defense brunch Best coffeeSugarsheet le bal cafe gluten free paris best place clichy impasse la defense magnum

But most importantly, you will have to stop at the Bal’s Café as the food is really really.. awesome ! Two chefs, Alice Quillet and Anna Trattles are cooking british inspired dishes with lots of creativity. The week end brunch is quite popular here: pancakes, scones, bacon & eggs.. For cakes, they are the same sold at the coffee shop Ten Belles: pumpkin muffin topped with yogurt, crunchy cookie and the chocolate-raspberry tart. SUGARSHEETBLOGLEBAL

Shakespeare and Company Coffeeshop – Paris

30 octobre 2015 § 6 Commentaires

Shakespeare & Company, the worldwide famous bookshop located on Paris’ left bank has associated with Marc Grossman from Bob’s Kitchen–(also Bakeshop-JuiceBar) and Café Lomi for their new coffeeshop. SHAKESPEARE COMPANY Coffeeshop best coffee paris Sugarsheet notre dame

Founded by the American expatriate George Whitman in the 1950s, it is not a library you go for finding a book in particular but rather for its bohemian atmosphere and browse inside the historic building. Few Parisian know this place as they avoid Notre Dame, considered to be « Trop touristique! » – too touristic for them! This coffeeshop should help them reconcile with Paris’ most attractive landmark.

Korean Street Food at le Carreau du Temple – Paris

25 septembre 2015 § 5 Commentaires

Until Sunday, will be held at Le Carreau du Temple a street food festival centered around Korean food with other food trucks as well. Korean food is not yet well known in France, maybe at the exception of the spicy kimchi and the BBQ. The Korean food stalls present here were promoting traditional korean dishes yet unfamiliar to Parisians, such as Tteokbokki, Hop-pang, or seafood Pajeon. They are prepared just in front of you and you are able to see how they are cooked.Carreau du temple Street Food Korean Sugarsheet Paris le MaraisCarreau du temple Street Food Korean Sugarsheet Paris Le marais

The korean chef Pierre Sang was also there and had his own food stall. I tried his Kimchi lentil, not as spicy as I was expecting but strong enough for the Parisians trying Kfood for the first time. If you have never drink Makgeolli or Soju yet, head to the bar to try ! Carreau du temple Street Food Korean Sugarsheet Paris Le marais Hero ChickenCarreau du temple Street Food Korean Sugarsheet Paris Carreau du temple Street Food Korean Sugarsheet Paris 6 TteokbokkiCarreau du temple Street Food temple Korean Sugarsheet Paris 4

La Perla ai Bisatei in Murano – Venice

23 septembre 2015 § 5 Commentaires

Finding an authentic restaurant is the biggest challenge when you are visiting Venice and its surroundings. By « authentic » I mean a place without overpriced dishes and aimed only for hungry tourists.

If you have time to visit Murano, try to have lunch at La Perla Ai Bisatei. Located on the residential part of the island, you will eat in a family run osteria among glass blowers and locals. Spaghetti vongole alle Osteria ai bisatei la perla Sugarsheet venice budget murano restaurant best

On the menu, typical italian dishes such as Spaghetti alle vongole (spaghetti with clams), seafood plate and if available an excellent risotto. Despite the absence of any particular decor, I appreciated eating comfort food in a family run osteria after over indulging myself with gelati.

Duck and Waffle – London

24 août 2015 § 5 Commentaires

Finally trying a restaurant with a view in London! Thanks to my friend who suggested we had breakfast at Duck and Waffle, it was one of the best surprise of the week end. You will reach the heights after taking a glass lift which will bring you to the 40th floor of the Heron Tower in a flash. If you feel dizzy, close your eyes, but it would be a pity to miss the amazing view. City London Heron Tower Best view london Sugarsheet DUck waffle Daniel Doherty restaurant

I did not have high expectations on the food served in this kind of places: usually overpriced and average quality justified by the view. At Duck and Waffle, the British chef Daniel Doherty has succeeded to propose simple dishes with quality ingredients. Their specialty as its name indicates: waffles ! I was not in the mood for eating duck at 8am, neither my friend, so we took a Banana Brûlé waffle, with a delicious home made nutella topped with vanilla ice cream. A real decadent breakfast of Champions !

They have a full brunch menu, with Mimosa, Bloody Marys and Eggs cooked the way you desire. Sometimes it is ok to forget preconceptions and leave them in your cupboard to give a try to places like this one. Definitely the best breakfast experience I had so far!
