Do you ever go someplace and then you tell everyone who will listen about it? The Foodhallen in Amsterdam is that kind of place. I’ve had the pleasure of visiting it several times and every time I have an amazing experience and out of this world food. I’ve been to food halls in several cities, but there is just something about this Food hall that makes it my favorite.
The Foodhallen was originally started in 2014 and given that it beat what was my favorite food hall, Mercado de San Miguel in Madrid, it shouldn’t be a surprise that it was the inspiration of the creators of FoodHallen. I think one of the elements that separates FoodHallen from other food halls is that it feels so lively and social. With its wide spaces (also unique to food halls in Europe) and plenty of places to sit and eat, it is easy to enjoy a long afternoon. In fact, on one visit my girlfriends and I spent 6 hours! ⠀⠀
The Foodhallen has over 21 food stands representing food from all over the world and this California girl will attest to it having the best tacos I’ve had outside of California – they are truly to die for. The beer, wine, and Gin and Tonic bar all make it a great spot for us booze hounds. A highlight is the dutch classic Bitterballs created by no less than a Michelin starred chef!
If you are ever in Amsterdam this is well well worth a visit and when I’ve been it has felt more like a local than a tourist destination.
A more in-depth review is available on my blog.

The Queen of Brda 👑 Not me, the Rebula!
@kabajwines Rebula (aka Ribolla Gialla) from Slovenia, appellation Goriska Brda 🇸🇮
🍷 30 days skin contact and 2 years in French Oak. Had an amontillado-like quality. Smells of chai spices, quince, ripe apricot, toasted hazelnuts. These characters followed into the palate along with a touch of umami, sea salt, and soft wood spices that linger into the finish. This wine would be bad ass along side Korean bbq 🙌🏼 ...
Remarkable Chambertin 1992 from Domaine Leroy
When you have a time for tasting Domaine Leroy(not maison leroy), you can understand immediately why she is the best wine maker..
* Score : 95 point
* Drink : Now ~ 2035+
* Comment : Highly Recommended
* Surface : 0.5ha in ownership
* Viticulture : Biodynamic
* Winery information
This prestigious Domaine gathers nine Grands Crus. The vines are cultivated following biodynamic principles and produce extremely low yields, but with a quality that have no equal in the entire world of pinot noir. The beauty of the aromas of all of these [Leroy] wines only has an equal in the supreme elegance of their texture and precision of none other than the terroir itself. They are the absolute model of quality, recognized by everyone and universally sought after.
* Wine making
Domaine Leroy is ruled under the same principles as the Domaine d’Auvenay that is to say, a strict application of biodynamic methods regarding viticulture and the conscientious respect of the lunar calendar in every steps of the winemaking process.
부르고뉴 1992 빈티지(레드)와 1994 빈티지(레드,화이트)는 1990년대에 생산된 와인들 중 가장 어려운 빈티지로 손꼽히지만 역시나 Leroy는 달랐다.
이 와인은 Leroy 특유의 풍성한 fruit 캐릭터와 특유의 oriental spicy가 일품이였으며 탄탄하게 잘 짜여진 구조감과 부드럽게 녹아내리시 시작한 감미로운 타닌의 여운이 너무나도 매력적인 퍼포먼스를 보여주었다.
물론 강력한 파워나 임팩트를 느낄수는 없었지만 쉽지 않은 빈티지에 생산된 와인이라고 생각하기엔 너무나도 뛰어난 완성도를 지니고 있었다.
역시나 부르고뉴 와인은 생산자의 힘이 가장 중요한.. ...
2003 Cos d’Estournel hits the spot.
What are your thoughts on 2003 Bordeaux?
Personally I find that 2003 is not a great Bordeaux vintage. It’s inconsistent, with many wines lacking structure and freshness. Other wines have aged far too quickly. .
But there are high points that were able to contend with the extraordinary dry, hot conditions. Primarily, you find the best wines in the northern Medoc and in some Saint Emilion vineyards.
2003 #chateaucosdestournel is drinking great today. Located in the far north of Bordeaux, with less than an hour in the decanter, the aromatic profile, with its Asian spice, smoke, thyme, blackberry and earthy essence popped. The wine is full-bodied, rich, opulent and sensuous. While this is drinking great today, the wine improved in the glass, so it is going to get better with more time. ...
One of my favourite wines so yes, just for you! I had to pop the new 2016 @ £82-£109 too see if it’s as good as all the 97 points hype & I have to say it’s drinking superb already 😍 this is going to be VERY hard to resist young 😉 If you can afford a few I’d highly recommend you grab as they will be £150+ in years to come 😎 a top Tig 👏
