HOTSPOT: Vapiano

EN

Thank you for your kind compliments about my uni, in the last post :P I think my uni will be happy to hear it haha..

A few days ago, I went to have lunch with my brother in Rotterdam. We decided to go to Vapiano! I’ve been there before with Carmen for a pumpkinsoup, but never really have tried out their pasta and other foods yet, because Vapiano is an Italian cuisine!

Vapiano to me is a nice mix of fastfood & fine dining. The menu is super versatile and the price are amazingly affordable. And the best thing is: everything is homemade and cooked right in front of your nose because Vapiano works with a open kitchen concept.

I didn’t brought my SLR this time because I want to carry a small bag, so the pictures below are made with my 5 megapixel smartphone. Scroll down and take a look!

Haha wat een leuke complimentjes over mijn hogeschool! Zullen ze vast wel leuk vinden om te horen..

Een paar dagen geleden, ging ik lunchen met mijn broer in Rotterdam. We besloten om naar Vapiano te gaan! Ik ben er al eerder geweest met Carmen voor een pompoenen soep, maar nooit echt uitgebreid gegeten daar en hun pasta uitgeprobeerd, want Vapiano is een Italiaanse keuken!

Vapiano is voor mij een mooie combinatie tussen fastfood en chic dineren. Het menu is super veelzijdig en de prijs is verbazingwekkend betaalbaar. En het mooiste is: alles is zelfgemaakt en jouw gerecht wordt voor je neus klaargemaakt, omdat Vapiano met een open keuken concept werkt!

Dit keer heb ik mijn SLR camera niet meegenomen omdat ik graag een wat kleinere tas wil dragen en meer vrijheid wil. De foto’s hieronder zijn gemaakt met mijn 5 megapixel smartphone. Scroll naar beneden en neem een ​​kijkje!

I took the 'aglio e olio' so delicious! The pasta is cooked al dente and so flavorsome! 
My brother took the bolognese.  

For all the interior suckers and foodies out there, you'll love the interior of Vapiano! We have chosen for a table near window = natural light = better pictures... 

It taste more like juice than tea. 

I was super stuffed after that bowl of spaghetti, but I just had to finish my lunch with a dessert. 

Look at the panna cotta in those glass jars! What a shame you are so heavy and I was stuffed, so I've chosen for the raspberry tart. And my brother a safe choice: ice cream. 

The raspberry tart is so nice with these fresh plump raspberries! The crust is nice too but a tad bit to thick for my fork to slice through properly, so I ate it like a pizza c:

  2. For me Arizona equals sugar water :p Maar het is nog steeds heeel lekker haha.
    Ik ben nog nooit naar de Vapiano geweest; ik kom er vaak langs, maar ik heb nooit de kans gehad om daar te eten.. Misschien een idee voor na een leuk uitje haha
    En hoezee voor het pizzadessert :D haha grapje.

  3. Vapiano is also quite famous here Germany but i have never been there so far (^3^)°.
    What i really liked at first sight was the basil plant on the spice section - can everybody just pick up some leaves or is it just deoration (don't think so :D)?
    ...i love Green Tea, but when it comes to Arizona, i also would choose the Blueberry Version :3

  15. Oh my gosh, this is making me crave pasta so much! Those desserts look really tempting too, if only it were possible to have all of them...

  16. Awesome meal! I LOVE pastas although they are so carb filled! That's awesome to have fresh basil on the side like that! It's fine, the photos look great still!

  17. Ik dacht dat je een olympus E-PL iets had? :]

    Ik was bij Vapiano geweest op het station in Berlijn, vond die kastjes en kaartjes nog steeds het grappigst. Geen gezeik met de betaling en je weet meteen wanneer je je pizza of pasta kan halen.

  18. What are your future plans now that you have graduated from uni (not to be creepy, haha)! :) Anyway, such a lovely restaurant! Pastas look so good, but I have to admit, it takes me forever to finish one from restaurants! Haha, I spy some yarn in your bag!! Good job for being a good older sister :P

    Have a great day!
