La Neta

We were really curious to go out for tacos at La Neta. Antwerp doesn’t have a great selection of Mexican restaurants, so when we discovered a taquería with a high rating close by we wanted to try it out!

You’re unable to make a reservation, so expect to wait in line. Luckily it moves quickly so you don’t have to wait too long (plus it’s worth it!). We ordered a serving of chips and guacamole and two types of tacos: pastor (marinated pork with pineapple) and carnitas (pulled pork confit). Once you receive your food, there are many salsas to choose from along with chopped onion and cilantro. Yum!

New York Day: Katz’s Deli & The Met

The Famous Katz's Delicatessen

The Famous Katz’s Delicatessen

By our 10th day in NYC, we had already seen quite a bit – so we slept in before enjoying lunch at the famous Katz’s Delicatessen, founded in 1888! Everyone knows the famous scene in Katz’s Deli from the movie When Harry Met Sally. There’s sign hanging in the restaurant if you’re interested in sitting in the same booth! After our HUGE lunch, we headed to The Metropolitan Museum of Art. The collection at the Met is overwhelming. In general, it’s so amazing how much art is at your fingertips while you are in New York City. Koen and I will be back in NYC September 2014, and we’ll definitely head back to the Met! If you’re on a budget, admission for the museum is based on donations. So if $25 is too much, you can give what you can any day of the week. After our trip to the Met we met Christina when she got off from work for Mexican food.
