Focaccino

Wednesday was Rafael’s birthday (yes folks, we are all getting old around here…haha), what better reason to pick a nice restaurant and empty a little bit more our bank account to celebrate one more year of his life?! This year, I chose the restaurant and didn’t tell him which one it was, or what type of food they serve. I wanted it to be a surprise, a good one I hoped….and it turned out to be the best restaurant that we know here in Berlin (until now). Ok, so we don’t know a lot of restaurants here, but we already had bad experiences. I think that I already talked about this on the blog, how hard it is to find a good and clean restaurant here in Berlin (affordable to our pockets). Call us picky, but we like clean plates, glasses, silverware and napkins! People here most of the times don’t see the use of napkins, and I’m like whaaaat?! you crazy?! I always eat with a napkin by my side, but maybe this is a cultural thing…I don’t know…so I was definitely nervous to try and pick a nice restaurant, and photos on the internet can fool you for sure! I ended up on the Tripadvisor website, I remember that we found some great restaurants through them while we were in France, but we also got one bad experience, but in my opinion, they are almost always right. So I decided to trust them once more and booked a table at an Italian Sicilian restaurant called Focaccino, located in the neighbourhood of Charlottenburg.

Treat of the Week

This week was a very special one, Tuesday was Rafa’s birthday!! I wanted to surprise him, since I wasn’t able to give him the present that I had in mind, so I decided to bake him a cake! Some of you may be thinking…really, a cake?! Yes! I do not have a great history with cakes, I cook a lot of good things around here, but I always had trouble with cakes…some of then didn’t grow, some weren’t baked right…so you can imagine the level of anxiety I was feeling when I decided to bake a cake, it couldn’t go wrong! And guess what, it didn’t! A big HOORAY for me!! hahaha

Cheers to 28!

So, yesterday I turned 28 years old! Cannot stop thinking that it’s closer and closer to 30 😮 but what can we do right?! Time passes by so quickly, the only thing we can do about it is enjoy it as much as possible, am I right?! I definitely don’t feel 28, despite the fact that hangovers are getting much easier to suffer from as each year goes by. It’s like, ok body I understand you, you’re not processing alcohol as fast as you used to, especially when it comes to beer. But on the bright side, every time we go out for drinks, I find myself drinking less (it’s a good thing, no?! lol) and switching to spritz, cocktails or wine.
