As mentioned before, meeting up with friends is always having dinner together, because we have to eat, right? 🙂 This time, we ended up in Zaventem, not that far from the airport, at an Italian restaurant: Il Milano di Toto.

A lot of people say it is impossible to have good (and healthy) food in the US. They say you only can get fast food like burgers and pizza. During our trip (and previous trips to the US), we discovered that you can get really good food, sometimes by doing some research, like using Tripadvisor or yelp for example.

Also in the supermarket, you have more choices for healthy and adapted food then we have in Belgium.

Because my friend goes there more often, I let her choose the restaurant. She picked Sanh-Kee, a typical Chinese restaurant famous for its roast duck and meat. We ordered the..
