👩‍🍳Coming back to Vienna after six weeks’ vacation from the Philippines. We had our Breakfast at Le Crobag. Because I landed at the airport at seven in the morning. Then we went shopping until the afternoon. After shopping, we had our dinner at Taco Mexican Restaurant in Shopping City Süd. Large selection of food and drinks. The dishes are prepared quickly and are of good quality. Value for money is absolutely fine. A visit can be recommended with a clear conscience. Another Gastronomic Adventure the whole day.



Basically, I’m not good with kitchen stuff or utensils. I don’t ever bother myself how does it looks like the most important for me is it is a stuff which I can use for storage and serving food. I would never spend several thousand euros for this stuff, and I’m certainly not stingy. But sometimes I have wishes too…….

Got a new kitchen stuff last week. Which I ordered online from Lock and Lock!   An airtight container and bowls from Ikea, for “Lugaw” (Rice Porridge or Rice-Congee). Good for microwave, dishwashing maschine, refrigerator, virtuallyairtight and watertight! It has said to be that Lock holds tight and fresh! 


The Lock & Lock multifunction boxes are genuine all-rounder. Whether at home or on the road; in the air- and water-tight cans keeping everything fresh, hygienic and safe. For the safety lock and the special silicone dual-chamber seal provide. Food stays fresh longer and aromas remain long. Intensive smells like fish or cheese remain closed, do not go to other foods over and does not spread in the fridge. The high-quality, transparent material of Lock & Lock boxes gives a good overview of all the stored supplies.

Bisphenol A may under certain circumstances cause health problems and should therefore not be used in the food industry. The Lock & Lock boxes are BPAfree and therefore safe for storage of food, including baby food. So take it away from me readers  😉

While the bowls I got it from Ikea for only one euro and seventy five cents each. Very cheap right, ideal for serving lugaw or even something with soup with matching soup bowl underliner too.



We brought the whole family to the IKEA Restaurant for a delicious meal at an affordable price. After a half day shopping. They have a tasty special offer cooking at the restaurant each day of the week. Offers and menu options may vary by store like here at Shopping City Süd (South) in Vösendorf!

For my lunch I got chicken breast with mushrooms sauce and bread dumplings.
Main course and hot meals, the restaurant is in the middle of the store.

Besides hot meals, the restaurant offers lighter meals like salads and sandwiches with a Swedish flair. Cookies, cakes, desserts.

Lots of good desserts to choose from for those who think a meal is not complete without a sweet. Above here with mix fruit salad and sweet.

Like their Swedish meatballs with mashed potatoes (picture above) this was my daughter’s lunch, and down here is with french fries was my son’s choice. Knäckebröd and six kinds of herring. Shopping is hard work, and while pickled herring may not be at the top of everyone’s wish list at mealtime unless you’re Swedish, but I’m not…lol…we’re pretty sure you’ll find something you like on their menu. Fresh, tasty, well-prepared and affordable is theirr food philosophy.

One more thing…stopping by the bistro on our way out and refuel before we hit the road. With their hot dogs, ice cream and more. Free refill drinks at IKEA, on coffee, tea and soft drinks too. What more could you ask!
