Just a few images from last year’s birthday celebration(s) in London that lasted for about three days! Friday: 155 metres up, the spectacular Sky Garden and pre-birthday drinks. Saturday: April 2nd and my 21st birthday, lunch with friends and a delicious homemade Swedish sticky cake. Sunday: unfortunately no pictures from the lovely afternoon tea at a new hotel nearby the O2 – with a fantastic view over to Canary Wharf and its skyscrapers!
Copenhagen February 2nd with my dear friend Claudia. London Fog and a croissant for me at Original Coffee/Illum Rooftop. Revolver. Nachos (for sharing/two) and a blueberry mojito at Café Norden, followed by a sweet dessert, cheesecake and the best Irish Coffee! Unfortunately no pictures from the event at ARCH where we ended the day.
Panicking in a coffee shop and allowing a distressingly odd combination of fillings to happen… Honestly, I crave this bread roll with Brie and salami on a daily basis. It is so good! I have eaten it more or less every week since the start of the year. Gateau never disappoint. They also have the best “semla” on the market. I will show you in another post!
If you are looking for Malmö’s best hamburgers – look no further! Burgers & Friends serve the most delicious burgers that I have ever tasted, and if you go there, you must try their sweet potato chips as well. Yum! Paris Marché is my favourite hamburger with cheddar cheese, bacon, caramelised onions, lettuce, pickled green tomatoes and the tastiest truffle mayo! I am a sucker for anything truffle. Anyway, the restaurant was founded by the number one Swedish chef according to me, namely Melker Andersson. He is so handsome… Oh, and the ambiance in his restaurants; casual and cosy, yet with a touch of luxury – just what I like! Actually, I once had dinner with Melker’s brother and his family along with a few mutual friends. Ha! The pictures were taken about two weeks ago when I visited the place (for the second time) with my friend Claudia.
This reinforces my belief that I am secretly British, it is totally my cup of tea! In fact, I had to get Earl Grey the other day to do a London Fog (a tea/latte drink as seen on the picture below). It is easy-peasy to make and not too unhealthy, all you need to do is: brew the tea, add a little vanilla syrup (I went with Alpro Soya Vanilla instead) and finish with some steamed milk. If desired, you can also sprinkle some cinnamon on the top! I have not figured out the ultimate measurements for my taste yet, so I suggest you Google a recipe if you want to try it. The beverage is sweet but not too sweet, and I like it (not least because of the beautiful name). Anyway, I hope you have a good laugh with hilarious Mr (Handsome) Hussey. Cheers!
This is what I had for dinner last night with my grandparents and my grandmother’s younger sister. For starters we had beets, chèvre/goat cheese, pine nuts and some honey. Yum! The main course consisted of fillet of beef, potatoes (Hasselbacks), chanterelle sauce and salad; my favourite dish and no one makes it better than granny! D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S!
