Amsterdam: Rijstaffel and Bols Museum

My last post about the Whole Foods Foodie Fantasy contest trip that we took was last November, but I’m determined to finish these up before the one year anniversary of our trip so that I have them to share with others going to Europe.
Before we hit Bruges, or Brugge, Belgium, we were in Amsterdam so obviously these posts aren’t in chronological order.
I had never been to Amsterdam, and one of the first things I noticed is that there were bicycles everywhere!

Other first impressions of Amsterdam: gorgeous buildings, canals everywhere, charming …

Belgium Bites

Sending a shout out to everyone celebrating a birthday today on 11-11-11! This year, I spent my birthday in Bruges (or Brugge), Belgium. Adam and I bought a small package of candles at HEMA, one of those stores where you end up buying things you never knew you needed.
We ate our way through Bruges, and almost everywhere we stopped, Adam stuck a candle in whatever we were sampling and lit it. I got to make lots of wishes that day! Here we are at da Vinci Gelateria.
Next stop was for …

NYC Food Trucks on Park Avenue

Thanks to Twitter, @??? (Tony ?), connected me to Perry from @nystfood, who e-mailed me a list of some of his favorite food trucks in the city. At the moment, Perry specializes in Manhattan food trucks, which served me just fine, since we would be spending most of the week in the city. Lunches were unplanned, due to my work schedule, so I was hoping to visit a handful of food trucks midday. Thanks to Perry and his wonderful site, that’s exactly what I did.
While the trucks park in various …

Your Mom’s Burgers are so Good….

I remember the day I ate at Your Mom’s Burger Bar in East Austin. My colleague and friend Stacy and I drove over to the E. Cesar Chavez and Chalmers burger joint for a quick lunch. It was the Friday before Mother’s Day and it seemed like an appropriate place to eat.
I asked if they had something special for Stacy since she’s a mother and it was Mother’s Day weekend after all. I do think they mentioned they give a little something to folks who come to Your Mom’s with their …

Tasty Up Trailer Tour

Yesterday was the most awesome tour to date. If you missed out on the first-ever Tasty Up Trailer Tour, co-organized by Addie Broyles and me, you’re about to be jealous.
Since it was a choose-your-own adventure tour, each of the 500 or so attendees had their own unique experience. Below are some highlights from mine taken with my brand new Canon s90 point-and-shoot camera.
Addie met me at around 11:30 a.m. at La Boite before she set off to Trailer Perk. The tour officially began at noon and those two spots were …
