A Bite of Summer, A Bit of Food
The past summer has fully satisfied me as a foodie. No matter where you go in the world, food is always an essential and indispensable element of everyday life, making simple ingredients and materials into thousands of millions of delicious miracles.
Please scroll down and enjoy the supreme torture (of only seeing the pictures, I guess?) and ultimate temptation.
Look at this curry pork rice!!!
Grandma style potato
Typical Shanghai Breakfast
Don’t be scared; those are rice balls with Chinese herbs, red bean, sugar and other ingredients. Very tasty, very Southern China
Salad (sweet sauce that is only available in Asian countries)
Spotted! This is not a commercial; Pizza Hut was made Chinese in China. See? Bubble tea!
Beef soup back home was super! Beef+Chinese Vermicelli+Dried Tofu, “heel lekker”
Typical Chinese Dishes – Tomato + Egg, and Beans + Mini-Shrimp
Raisins and cup-noodles in China
Ice-cream on top of brownie
Waffle in China
Lava Chocolate hiding behind Ice-creams
Fresh! Huge! Cherries!
Fresh! Cheap! Lychee!
Fresh Chinese Grapes
Homemade Nutritious Dish with carrot, onion, and some vegetables only available in China
Look at the corn making a tempting mist!
Now I’m wondering if I should indeed write this post, because I am super duper hungry at the moment. Being home is awesome not only because of food, but also because of the love and happiness you share with your family and friends. But after arriving here, I also enjoyed a lot with my friends here in the Hague.
Relaxed at Douwe Egberts
Jajangmyeon and shrimp dumplings!
Bubble Tea at Noordeinde
French cinnamon toast and toasti!
Having Japanese food in a fantastic restaurant in Leiden (these are all vegetarian)
I am sure there will be more photos and posts from me about food; and, of course, I am very excited about exploring other nice places with food during the last year of my bachelor’s programme. Ciao for now!

All of it looks yummy, I wish I had those choices!
Hi Mandala! Thanks for your comment 🙂 One awesome thing about the Netherlands is that you can have basically all kinds of food (Japanese, Korean, Arabic, Indonesian or whatsoever). If you live in/come to The Hague, first go and check out Noordeinde. It will truly amaze you.
