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 Ă©lĂ©ment – 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…

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…

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…

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…

De Superette – Ghent

This is one of our favourite places in Ghent. We used to live next doors and couldn’t have better neighbours than The Superette. It’s a nice big space, where Rose Green kneads the dough and a talented barista serves you a heavenly coffee. You can have breakfast, brunch (in the weekends), lunch or dinner. There’s a counter…

Umamido – Antwerp

Umamido positions itself as a non nonsense ramen noodle shop. And that’s what it is. We had tried it once at Flagey in Brussels, but had a surprisingly better experience this time in Antwerp (Graaf Van Egmontstraat 57). Although the staff told us they all use the same broth, the same recipe, we might have…

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…
