Coffin Sally – Port Fairy – Australia

A beautiful place. When you walk the streets at 8pm on a Tuesday night, you would think you’re the only living soul on the streets that night. But open the door towards the bar and restaurant of Coffin Sally, and you will know where the people hang around. Coffin Sally offers great pizza and a…

La Bimba – Great ocean road – Australia

It was delicious. We were sent to La Bimba by the owner of Ipsos, another great restaurant at the Great ocean road. We were lucky to have a table for two with no reservation. Although it was a Monday evening, in a small town, the place was full. Booking is recommended. At La Bimba everything…

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…

‘T Werftje – Zeebrugge 

Every single person in Belgium knows ‘t Werftje. This authentic bar is hidden in between the Harbour channels of Zeebrugge, a city among the Belgian coastline. Here they serve the most gorgious shrimp croquettes. People come from far just for these amazing local deliscious croquettes. This place has some history. The third generation is now in…

Arzak – San Sebastian

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

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…

Le Deuxième élément – Brussels

You know the Thai restaurants that serve the real stuff, the authentic Thai food? If so, you probably also know the Thai restaurants that create new Thai dishes. They use local flavors or experiment in many ways.  It’s not always easy to find the first ones, nor find a good one of the latter in…

Noordzee – Brussels

Fishbar Noordzee is one of our favorite places in Brussels.   This fish shop has a bar, some standing tables across and enthusiastic staff. They serve super fresh fish streetfood.Go there for lunch or dinner on sunny days. You’ll find some die-hards from the moment it stops freezing and it doesn’t rain. The food is too…

BÚN – 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…

Humphrey – Brussels

When the sous-chef of Noma (once the best restaurant in the world according to several ‘lists’) comes to your hometown and opens a restaurant ,you book the first table you can get. At least that’s what I did when I read the news. We went on a Monday evening in the 2nd or 3rd week…

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…

Bangkok – Nahm

Locals and websites we had checked for references, told us going to Nahm is a great idea. It is the 5th best restaurant in Asia. So we entered the restaurant with very high expectations. Unfortunately, we ended the meal a bit dissapointed. The interior was ok, a bit dark, but cosy. Nothing special. Although the…
