The Belgian tennis star Kim Clijsters visited Lombardia this week! She dropped by with a friend for a vegetarian daily special and a hot, foamy GingerLove tea.
Alain and his family are big fans of Kim and were delighted to welcome her to their vegetarian restaurant in Antwerp. Alain’s mother, co-founder of Lombardia, even revealed her favorite GingerLove recipe to Kim!
Kim had heard of Lombardia and GingerLove before but hadn’t visited us yet. We were happy to serve her her very first cup of our wonderful ginger tea in Lombardia. While eating our healthy daily special and sipping GingerLove Kim noticed the pictures on our walls.
“Did all these stars really visit Lombardia and drink GingerLove?”, she asked. Yes, they sure did. We promptly got out our camera, took this wonderful picture of Kim at Lombardia drinking GingerLove and added a very special Belgian star to our collection! We’re very happy to have a picture of Kim on our walls and it seems like Kim was happy at Lombardia too: a couple of days later, she returned with her husband and daughter.
