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)

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)

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 […]

6. September 2014: Restaurant Belcanto

Once more I used TripAdvisor as a valuable source to find a great restaurant in a city I have never been to. And once more, I was not disappointed. In order to have the full experience of José Avillez (1-starred Michelin chef), I went for their signature “Menu Lisboa” (EUR 135.00) described as “It was […]

9. August 2014: Schloss Schauenstein

UNIQUE – that is the perfect description of my experience at Schloss Schauenstein. I wanted to pay Andreas Caminada, Swiss Chef of the year and currently number 43 of the 50 best restaurants in the world, a visit already for long but finally made it happen. The table had to be booked in February to […]

11. May 2013: Restaurant Asador Etxebarri

One word to describe this “experience”: disappointment! I have been at number 11, 36 and 38 of the world and figured when I go to number 31, it should be somehow comparable but it wasn’t. For a relatively low price of EUR 125.00 (excl. VAT) the tasting menu was offered which of course I had […]
