Favorite Dishes 2016

Amsterdam, The Netherlands


food | 31 December 2016

I had to dig into my archives for this and I have to say, even though I am stuffed from all the food I’ve had over the holidays, these photos have made me kind of hungry!

I started blogging in 2015 so this was my first full year as a food blogger. I’ve tasted a ton of dishes both here and abroad (and probably gained the extras kilos for it). Some dishes were definite hits for me – memorable dishes that makes a restaurant stand out. These are some of my favorite dishes of 2016 – enjoy!
