Great experience in the outskirts of Mexico City: Restaurant Sud 777 (25. August 2018)

The Restaurant Sud 777 was on my list for quite a while and last time when I’ve been to Mexico I had a booking but somehow didn’t manage to pay it a visit. This time, it worked. It is, admittedly, located in a quite remote part of Mexico City and a good 45 minutes car […]

Good but not on my list of the 50 Best restaurants: Restaurant Nicos (21. August 2018)

Good but not on my list of the 50 Best restaurants: Restaurant Nicos (21. August 2018)

The Restaurant Nicos is No. 29 of the 50 Best Restaurants in Latin America – given I’ve tried a couple, my expectations were quite high. Frankly speaking, they haven’t really been fulfilled though. The “bread wagon” where you get to pick which breads you want, is nice. However, the waitress did not manage to serve […]

Another visit to No. 14 of the world: Restaurant Steirereck (22. June 2018)

I visited the Steirereck back in 2012 and haven’t been back since (read 2012 review here). But somehow, I decided it was time to give it another shot. Coincidentally, it was also just three days before that the Steirereck has been ranked #14 of the world’s 50 best restaurants. What I was a bit surprised […]

Lunch at No. 16 of the world: Restaurant D.O.M. (16. March 2018)

When I booked a table, I was somehow not aware that the D.O.M. is number 16 of the world. Luckily, I managed to get a table for lunch and went to for “Tasting Menu Optimus – A travel through the Brazilian flavour” (485 BRL). It started with a “cachaça and lime bonbon”. Which was quite […]

No. 41 of the 50 Best Restaurants of Latin America – really??? – Restaurant Tegui (26. October 2017)

No. 41 of the 50 Best Restaurants of Latin America – really??? – Restaurant Tegui (26. October 2017)

I was really looking forward to pay the Restaurant Tegui a visit – currently ranked No. 41 on the list of the 50 Best Restaurants of Latin America. Unlike in the Don Julio, the No. 21 on the same list, the reservation process wasn’t an issue at all. I even had to move the reservation […]

The most refined food experience in Argentina: Restaurant 1884 by Francis Mallmann (20. October 2017)

The most refined food experience in Argentina: Restaurant 1884 by Francis Mallmann (20. October 2017)

I had booked the Restaurant 1884 a couple of months before actually going here – and it has turned out as a great idea to pay a visit to 1884 by Francis Mallmann. And that for various reasons – not only because the food is the most refined I’ve tried in Argentina so far but […]

The best meat – with some service fails: Restaurant Parrilla Don Julio (16. October 2017)

The best meat – with some service fails: Restaurant Parrilla Don Julio (16. October 2017)

The Parrilla Don Julio is No. 21 on the list of the 50 Best restaurants of Latin America. And I must say, in terms of meat quality, it absolutely deserves that ranking. However, there was a little hick-ups when we arrived. I had booked the table in February, so a good 8 months ahead. However, […]

50 Best restaurants but not the best service: Restaurant Quintonil (12. April 2017)

The Quintonil has recently been awarded as one of the 50 best restaurants of the world and given I have been to Pujol and Biko previously, I thought it’s time to try a new one. I went for the “tasting menu” (1’800 MXN) with “wine pairing” (1’385 MXN). The restaurant is rather small and reservation […]
