If I feel like being nasty, I sometimes get a bite to eat at Grillroom Mimoza on the Kruiskade in the middle of the night after my restaurants close. With a cup of Ayran, a cold Turkish drink with yoghurt, salt and water. Me time. Mimoza is the cleanest and best shawarma place in town. And for good fries, I go to the Frietboutique from Sammy and Pebbles. Tasty and not too much. Just the way I like it.
I satisfy my sweet cravings at De IJssalon on the Meent with three big scoops of ice cream: Malaga, cherry mania and grandma’s apple pie. They experiment with new flavours and they have a sense of humour. They’ve won various prizes such as De Gouden IJsspatel and the best ice cream in the Netherlands. I don’t often indulge anymore; not since I lost fifty kilos.
