For my birthday, I wanted to spend a quiet day with Koen in Zeeland. I know about Cadzand because of Sergio Herman. He has two 1 Michelin starred restaurants, Pure C and Air Republic, both located in Cadzand and I was curious to see the appeal!
I don’t especially like swimming, but I love going for walks on the beach. There’s something about the salty, sea air that reinvigorates me. That’s why I love Zeeland – one of the twelve provinces of the Netherlands. Cadzand didn’t disappoint. I found the town very charming and relaxing.
After our walk, Koen and I headed to Sergio Herman’s Air Republic for a snack on their pavilion with a view of the ocean. The restaurant is actually divided into two sections – the actual restaurant which has earned a Michelin star and the cafe which is more of a snackbar. We dined at the latter, enjoying shrimp croquettes and kimchi fries!
