Instagram Monday: some instagramspiration to kick off the week!

14 January 2013


My foodist weekend on instagram!

I had a very gastronomic weekend :-). Here is some instagramspiration!

1) I love going to the theater Do you know the very divers MC Theater in Amsterdam at Westerpark? I saw some very good shows there, like a tribute to Nina Simone and some performances at the Afrovibe festival. They have a good theater restaurant too called Toko MC. Read my blog about Toko MC here!

2) One of my favourite cocktailbars in Amsterdam is Vesper! They serve very good cocktails and the place is very cosy. Try the dark and stormy or the Don Draper… and if you’re up to something stronger… try the Vesper Martini!

3) Meatballs is a must go! Go for the New York feeling at this Meatlball restaurant. If you like drinking beer I suggest to order Jupiler beer by the bottle. I loved it! My favourite balls (lol) where the NY style, Chicken garlic and the risotto balls as a side. Meatballs is perfect for a night out with friends!

4) New Years dinner with my parents in Zeeland (Southern district in the Netherlands)! We had a delicious night out at the Michelin-star restaurant Katseveer in this small town called Wilhelminadorp. This was a night to remember, celebrating the good things in life with my parents and brother and sister in law. Thanks mum and dad!

5-8) Weekend closure at the new and hot Izakaya restaurant in Amsterdam. I have to admit I fell in love with this place! Superb food, friendly staff and great cocktails (try the Bloody Geisha!) Every dish was delicious and to share with the table. My recommendations: the lobster with wasabi and pepper and the gyoza with wagyiu beef and some goose organs (I’m sorry but I have to admit… I like that).

PS: you can follow me on instagram at or search for ‘iannsterdam’. See you on instagram!
