Sushilee: Delicious sushi made with love in Amsterdam Zuidas

Sushilee opened in May 2016 and is already becoming a very popular place to eat in the Zuidas area of Amsterdam. The menu offers a range of Japanese dishes and snack items depending on whether you want a quick bite to take out or a sit down meal with a friend. The roasted Green Tea is delicious and I had to buy some to drink at home. The roasting removes the bitter taste sometimes found when drinking green tea.

Sweet Bob's Brazilian Brigadeiro: The first Dutch Brigadeiro Shop.

This week I had the pleasure of meeting the owners of Sweet Bob on the Brouwersgracht, Amsterdam. I have frequently walked past this place, so I decided to find out a bit more about the 'Brazilian Brigadeiro'. I had absolutely no idea what a Brigadeiro was up until this week.

A 'Brigadeiro' is a Brazilian delicacy first created in the 1940's and is common to see at celebrations and parties. The sweet is made from condensed milk, cocoa powder, butter with various flavourings and toppings. Currently there are 30 different flavours at Sweet Bob's with about 10-12 of these flavours available each day.
