Granja Petitbo – Barcelona

A treasure but not a hidden gem. Described by many others, yet positive every time so definitely worth a try. We had lunch at Granja Petitbo. Some highly friendly men took care of our dinner moment. A bit hipster but in the good way.  We ordered vegetarian lasagna, ceasar salad, waffle with pastrami and a…

The Cambridge St. Kitchen – London

Pimplico was new for us. A neighbourghood with mixed flavours and styles, and… the Cambridge St. Kitchen.  A place like you haven’t seen a lot before. A fresh take on modern luxury; great food, an authentic interior and skilled staff. We enjoyed our lunch on the terrace, and booked at the spot our breakfast for…

Arzak – San Sebastian

Our evening in restaurant Arzak in San Sebastian was the best michelin star experience we ever had.

Zaika – London

In a nutshell: you should eat here, at least once, when in London. Savor the intense Indian kitchen at Restaurant Zaika in London. You’ll go bananas. They just serve such good food, you’ll want to finish every plate you’ve ordered. And you’ll order a lot, there is so much to pick from. It is absolutely…

Henri – Brussels

Any reason is a good reason to go to restaurant Henri in Brussels. And any guest will find more than one dish he or she likes on the comprehensive menu, suggestions included.  Fish, meat and exquisite vegetarian dishes with a surprising twist are served with a smile and a nice glass of wine by the…

Kødbyens Fiskebar – Copenhagen

Must go.! 🙂 No frills wabi-sabi kind of place. Fast, warm and friendly staff.  The exterior doesn’t look fancy. We’re in the meat district here. Urban, young and a bit raw. Bur don’t hold back. Go in and enjoy. Lunch menu in Kødbyens Fiskebar is short and looks delicious. The wine list is impressive.  We…

BĂšN – Antwerp

Their kitchen is open all day, but they only take reservations from 8PM onwards. So we jumped in at 7PM and got 2 places, at the bar. Our favourite place. We only got until 8PM, because our seats where booked, they told us. But we agreed. It was tight, but we enjoyed our meals until the…

Baan – Bangkok

Thanks to the tip from a Singaporean friend, we found this little gem at Bangkok. The interior of Baan is a fresh modern mix of wood, white steel and marble. The ceiling is covered with mirror pieces and copper lamps. As the name of the restaurant suggests, the friendly staff makes you feel at home…

Ristr8to – Chiang Mai

Ristr8to is a nice coffee bar in the trendy neighbourhood of Chiang Mai. With the university nearby, it is no surprise that The Nimmanhaemin aera is a developing and lively spot near the old city center. Away from the tourist restaurants and backpacker hostels a new Chiang Mai neighbourhood is working his way up. We rented…

Nanaban – Zaventem

In our, completely biased, opinion this is the best Ramen place outside of Japan… by far. It’s small, quiet, no fancy decor, cheap and boy oh boy the food is divine! A small menu (but that’s in most case a good sign) and all ramen cost 12 Euro or 13 Euro.  Whatever you take you…

Ginza Bairin – Tokyo 

This is a very difficult place to find if you don’t understand Japanese, but it is definitely worth it. This place was the first specialty Tonkatsu (established in 1927) and still one of the best in Tokyo. As in all restaurants in Tokyo you’ll have to queue, but it goes fast. In the meantime you…

B.A.R. – Stockholm

An amazing place to go. When you enter you feel the positive vibe immediately. You’ll notice the contemporary interior, the kind people and the very cosy atmosphere.  When awarded chefs go for a fresh and affordable concept, all things come together. The big counter with fresh fish that look like they just jumped out of…
