Eating at Soif Cafe in Rotterdam (prior to #MTBCafe)

Prior to our Meet the Blogger #MTBCafe event in Rotterdam – Andreea from On (glorious) food & wine, Michelle from Very Hungry Explorer, HIM and I descended upon a restaurant nearby – called SOIF.

With a bit of a water side view (read: “canals”)… it did offer a bit of a holiday feeling.

the menu is definitely what I would call *short & sweet*… but in reality – the offerings were sufficient for 4 of us…

Andreea & I opted for Pompoensoep (Pumpkin soup = 4.75€ a bowl)

I also decided to pimp up my lunch with a side order of Brie & tomato toastie (3.25€)

Michelle was bowled over by her kroketten & frites (Meat Croquettes with fries = 6.75€) and you can read her review here

While HIM went BIG… and ordered the most expensive item on the menu – KIP SATE (Chicken satays (peanut sauce) with salad and frites = 12€)

All in all – everything was tasty (and cheap)… the environment was fresh and friendly.. and of course – it was right next door to our destination… Would I return? Probably not if I didn’t have a reason to be in Rotterdam.. but if I was in the neighbourhood – I would pop in again (plus they have free wifi!)
