No Durians allowed…. 9+ out of 10

Singapore food tour, including the cheapest 1(*) Michelin restaurant of the world, definitely one of my favourite countries in Asia! The Switzerland of Asia in my opinion, so clean and sterile, i love it for a few days! And the perfect melting pot of the Chinese, Malay and Indian people make it something special. As…

Le Cor de Chasse, Durbuy, Belgium (*) 9.7 out of 10

Best in Belgium in 2017 for me! By far the best food I had in Belgium all year, and I had a lot 😉 Too bad they missed a few points on other aspects of the restaurant game…. they could have had a perfect 10 if it was just the food. For all my Belgian…

Yerevan restaurant Moscow $$$

And yet another lovely day, going for dinner with one of my lovely new customers. But what did they do…??!! They scared me from the start, because they drove to a Shopping mall… can you believe that? Eating dinner in a shopping mall, that can only be fast-food, or some other shitty cheap food 😦…

Thank you dear readers all over the world for making this happen!

TOYO Eatery Manilla, Philippines 9.7 out of 10 (best in 2017)

I am the biggest idiot alive…. because I have waited 9 months to post the best restaurant of 2017…. If you ever have the plan to go to Asia, or more specific Manilla, read this !!!  If you’re not, still read this. What a crazy foodie roller-coaster it was, So special!      I have…

Restaurant Victor, Bilbao Spain $$

After my last bad experience in Antwerp, this time I had a bit of a better experience. Was it so amazing? Nope, not at all…. was it is as good as my next post will be…. nope. (the next post will be of the best restaurant of last year…). But still, as this is my…

De Veehandel, Antwerp Belgium $…

Just a super short post today… not a happy one and I will make many enemies now…. why?  Because this is, or has been the favourite restaurant of many friends and also family. They are one of the best known restaurants in Antwerp, bringing quality for over 60 years! “De Veehandel” (which means livestock market)…

Le Seoul, ulaanbataar, Mongolia $$

I know, I am an idiot…. I know I make mistakes…. first time in Mongolia and instead of going to a real Nomads restaurants downtown, I went to a Korean restaurant….. Just because I love Korean food and instead of eating sheep-brain, cows feet or pork-tail…. I wanted something else…. so no shock-food today…. Also…

Restaurant Spoon Budapest, Hungary $

It has been long since I last trashed a restaurant…. Mostly good experiences for the past few years… but finally I visited a restaurant that was really disappointing 😦 It was recommended, but it seems by someone with a much lower quality acceptance than myself…. So here is the reason I will not go back…

Hotelito De Jesus, Melbourne Australia $$$

Read this one, and look at the great pictures! This is a post and restaurant to remember… cool design, amazing setting and just a Mexican night out in Melbourne?! A real Tostaderia in cantina style, mixed with Tequila and Mescal…. and the name…. just perfect, did I die and went to Mexican heaven…? hahaha Based…

El Poblet (*) Valencia, Spain 9.6 out of 10 (!!!)

What an amazing trip I have had again, what a beautiful city is Valencia?! And what a great restaurant did I find? This 1 Michelin star restaurant is part of the dynasty by legendary ***chef Quique Dacosta. (will go there as well some day). I never had the chance to eat out in a Spanish Michelin…

La Terrazza, Skopje, Macedonia $$

first reason to post this blog, is that I have just found out that there is no single restaurant from FYROM (former Yugoslavian republic of Macedonia) on my site?! Even after many years of coming here (fucking love this country, so versatile, friendly and a lot of grilled meat), never found the interest nor the…

Osteria Bastian Contrario, Lucca, Italy $$$

I hate Italy, really freaking hate this country…. Because everywhere I go the food is just amazing. Okay I never go to the city centre or any tourist hotspot, I keep walking or driving till I find my spot. And every time I manage to find it. Also this time in Lucca, walked for 5…

Rest. Alasha Almaty, Kazakhstan $

Yep, this is the place I ate my first anus…. or to say it in a better way, horse rectum, which basically is nothing more than the last part of the intestines, which they use to make sausages from… So it sounds terrible and dirty but in fact it is just horsemeat… Went to this…

Tora-fugu tei Tokyo, Japan full review 9,1 out of 10 $$$

The absolute foodie dream came alive! Every big foodlover, when in Japan, needs to try the dangerous and poisonous Blowfish, or Fugu as they call it locally. So when I was in Tokyo, I had to do some searching for the best and safest place to go, since I was not planning of dying in…

Popasul Dacilor, Chisinau Moldova $$

Back again with a new country on my list…!!! (still have 7 others that I have visited, to be posted the coming days…). Moldova it is, just around the capital of Chisinau. Looking for the most local food, as I always do on my first trips. Had done my research, and went to the most…

Ho Hung Kee Congee & noodle wanton shop HongKong $$

OK, for everything a first time, so first time I blog about airport food and the first time I eat the feet of a chicken…. a famous part in Asia, unfortunately still unknown in Europe… Maybe except from Spain or Portugal? But got my attention with the note Michelinstar restaurant? at the Airport? Great! Not…

Down Town Gourmet market Eindhoven Netherlands $$$

Typical Sunday night looking for a new and trendy place to have some dinner. Being in the beautiful, but modern city of Eindhoven, I new there was this new foodmarket that had just opened last month. As we all know, I have seen many foodhalls / foodmarkets before, but this one was a bit extra special….

Manila street-food tour + restaurant Lazat $$/$

This article is not for those people with a weak stomach… Most of my European and American readers will not understand, but I am sure most of my Asian readers will…. this is about real street-food & the way it was supposed to be! And about getting the NR.1 out of my food bucketlist, BALUT !…

Nikkei Restaurant Manila Philippines $$/$

Hope my wife does not read this one…. Maybe it is better next time not to start my posts this way…. 😉 I was asked out by 4 ladies this night and who am I to refuse? Okay 4 singles, all attractive….but that is not what this site is about, they proposed Nikkei Restaurant. It is…

Pondok Laguna Jakarta Indonesia $$

Just a quick post here, maybe not the highest level of food but one of its purest! They are so well known for the seafood and it was a recommendation of my customer, who joined me as well. You can find them at: Jln. Batu Tulis Raya no. 45 10120 Jakarta call:021 3459991 If you are…

Skye Bar Jakarta Indonesia $$

Last night out in Jakarta, wanted to enjoy some views and international food, so after reading a view reviews, this one won! But I got disappointed from the start because after going u all 56 floors (lucky for me with an elevator….) I got refused…!! Me?! Because the dresscode said no beach wear or flip-flops…

Qiu Lian Ban Mian Singapore (quick review) $$

As a lover of real streetfood, I like to go where most locals go, avoid the tourists…. So when in Singapore, just go downtown and search for the central food market…you cal also go to hill street to visit the cheapest Michelin star rated streetfood, however I think it was a commercial hoax….and listening to…

Nolet’s Vistro Yerseke Netherlands (short review) Score $$

As explained on the new home page, there is a big change in my reviews! No longer the long stories but mostly quick reviews, just the exceptional places will get my full attention and a full review, otherwise I will have to quit my day job because I visit more restaurants than I can write about…

d’Essensi ‘s-Gravenwezel (*) 8.5 out of 10

Not sure if we had a reason to visit, but why do you need a reason to eat great food? And as it was on my very long Belgian restaurants bucket list, we made some time and went. They just received their first star in 2015/2016, being open for approximately 2,5 years now, they were…
