Going to restaurants is one of my favourite things to do with my boyfriend. We actually pretty regularly eat out. Because we have been together for quite some time we actually establishes a couple of favourite places, but every now and then I like to discover new places. Sometimes I do that with him and sometimes with friends. Anyway, what I’m trying to say is that I do have a couple of very favourite restaurants of places to eat that I want to share with you. One warning I do want to give you is that I’m not going to show you lots of hipster places that nobody knows just yet. Some might be very popular actually. I’m just going to share what I like and places where I know you can eat very, very well. With that being said, let’s get into it!
Da Verdi – Eindhoven
Let’s start off with my top pick, Da Verdi. It’s a really cute Italian restaurant in Eindhoven. It’s a very tasteful place with lots of tasty things on their menu. I feel like when you want to go for quality Italian food this really is the place to go. This is not just another pizza place, they know their stuff.
From their pizza’s to their pasta’s, everything they do, they do it well. I’m also a huge fan of their garlic bread and they do a couple of amazing deserts. And the best thing of all is that it’s not even that expensive. All in all, it’s everything I look for in a restaurant and therefore it’s my favourite!
De Bengel – Eindhoven
Another one of my favourites is De Bengel. This is another restaurant located in Eindhoven. They do amazing spareribs and their burgers are just incredible. But the best thing they serve is by far the spicy garlic bread and the cajun fries. I could eat those for days without getting sick of it. They also do an amazing chocolate mousse with the best whipped cream ever!
Jamie Olivers Pizzaria – Tilburg
Next up is a restaurant I only recently discovered. I went here with my three best friends to celebrate my birthday and it was even better than I expected. It’s a very instagram-proof little restaurant with a very modern look to it. Their garlic bread it proper, not as good as the ones at De Bengel and Da Verdi, but it’s good. But the best thing they serve is definitely their pizza! It looks so fresh and it tastes so good. The portions they serve are very decent so you don’t leave feeling empty, but it’s not way too much either.
Al Mundo – Den Bosch
Next up is a restaurant in Den Bosch. My boyfriend and I go here every so often and it never disappoints. We always get the spareribs here and they have a lot of different flavours to choose from. My personal favourite is the spicy version, but the barbecue taste is good as well.
Aside from the good food I also think that this is a very adorable and romantic little restaurant. It’s located a bit outside of the main part of the city so it’s not as busy either. And by the way, their garlic bread is pretty dang sweet as well! Love it!
Catina San Juan – Den Bosch
The next restaurant is a bit different from the others. This is a restaurant where they serve Mexican/south American food. My boyfriend and I love Mexican food so this is definitely one of our favourite restaurants. Their garlic bread is proper and they make some amazing fajitas. If you’re not in the mood for Mexican food they also make a really good burger so that’s a great option as well. In terms of desert we love their strawberry milkshake because it’s made with fresh strawberries. So flippin’ good!
Out of this list I think that Five Guys is one of the more well-known places. I have heard a lot of people trash-talking this place and I don’t get why. My boyfriend and I love this place so much! We go there way too often. My favourite is the little cheese burger with the first three rows of topping. Along with that we always go for the cajun style fries which are just the best and I love their sodas!
Mona Lisa – Eindhoven
This restaurant might be the most unknown one out of the list since it’s located in the suburbs of Eindhoven. It’s one of those typical Turkish restaurants but a bit more glam than that. They have things like shoarma, kebab but the best thing they have is by far their salami pizza. I’ve been to Mona Lisa about 1000000 times now and I’ve literally always ordered the salami pizza. It’s just the very best, so tasty! I have also scooped a bite of my grandfathers sparerib one day and I have to say, that’s pretty good too!
The last restaurant I wanted to mention is Vapiano. I am obsessed with Vapiano. Especially with their aglio e olio pasta. I have ordered aglio e olio in a ton of restaurants, but somehow it’s never as tasty as it is at Vapiano. They just use the right amount of garlic and the perfect amount of cheese. Another thing I really like about eating there is that their portions are also really reasonable. It’s not impossible for me to finish my plate there and I do think that’s very important. I hate wasting food!
Anyway, I think that’s it for today. I hope you enjoyed reading about my favourite restaurants and if you’re ever in the neighbourhood, be sure to check one of them out!
