A nice place with decent Asian dishes: Restaurant Tokyo (18. October 2022)

The Tokyo is a nice little Japanese restaurant which offers seating niches which are quite comfortable, and has lovely service. I went for the “crispy crab salad (crab, mixed vegetables, blast sauce)” (79.00 SAR) which was quite nice but a tiny bit too crispy for my personal gusto. The “Wagyu Tacos (crispy taco shells filled […]

A former No. 1 which really deserves that rating: Restaurant Mirazur (18. June 2022)

A former No. 1 which really deserves that rating: Restaurant Mirazur (18. June 2022)

Interestingly enough, booking the Mirazur does not take as much heads-up time as many of the No. 1 restaurants I have been to so far. And that is in thus far surprising as the experience is absolutely amazing. To be fair, what Mauro Colagreco serves here is not on the cheap side of things. The […]

A truly amazing experience worth visiting – the ‘Discovery’ restaurant of The World’s 50 Best: Restaurant Contraste (2. April 2022)

I had booked the Contraste after I had googled a couple of places to be visited when in Milan and this place showed up a couple of times and its chef, Matias Perdomo, seemed to be able to surprise guests with delicious new combinations. Only later that night when already seated, I realised that the […]

My fourth former No. 1 of the World and the first time I’m a bit disappointed: Restaurant El Celler de Can Roca (26. March 2022)

Three years after having booked a table at the El Celler de Can Roca, it was finally time to take that reservation and go for dinner here. The El Celler de Can Roca is run by the Roca Brothers and used to be a Number 1 of the world on “The World’s 50 Best Restaurants”. […]

A goodbye visit to the restaurant which rejected the 50 Best award but was rightfully nominated: Restaurant Masala y Maíz (1. December 2021)

A goodbye visit to the restaurant which rejected the 50 Best award but was rightfully nominated: Restaurant Masala y Maíz (1. December 2021)

The Masala y Maíz was nominated by the 50 Best for the “The Macallan Icon Latin America” award rightfully – however, they decided to reject the award. But let’s focus on the food – the process of getting a table takes a while as everything is prepared from the moment they open (i.e. 12:00 pm) […]

No. 27 of Latam’s best restaurants – not sure I agree: Restaurant Rosetta (29. November 2021)

The Rosetta was listed as No. 27 of the best restaurants in Latin America so it was sure time to give it a try! They also run a bakery so it was for sure time to try their “mantequilla con hormiga chicatana y pan de centeno” (130 MXN) to check out if their bread was […]

No. 9 of the World today but personally not as good as back then when it was No. 36 in 2009: Restaurant Pujol (16. November 2021)

No. 9 of the World today but personally not as good as back then when it was No. 36 in 2009: Restaurant Pujol (16. November 2021)

It’s a solid 12 years ago since I’ve been to the Pujol (which back then was No. 36 of the world). Now, it’s No. 9 of the world and it has changed quite a bit. Personally, I had high expectations since back then I had eaten maggots and ants for the first time in my […]

When you just feel like doing a little ‘food dance’ @ No. 18 of the World: Ristorante Piazza Duomo (30. October 2021)

It’s approximately one year ago since I’ve been to the Piazza Duomo (back then, No. 29 of the world) and I was very much look forward to another amazing dining experience at the Piazza Duomo, now that it was No. 18 of the world. You have to pick the menu you’re having well in advance […]
