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…

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…

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…

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.

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…

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…

Wein & Dine Köln 7.5 out of 10

Just another quick review while passing the beautiful city of Köln, or Cologne, or Keulen or whatever…. was there again during the big ISM fair.

Restaurant Tsiskvili Tbilisi (GE) (8.5 out of 10)

My very first trip to the beautiful country called Georgia (because 25% of the men were named George…..). It was on my wishlist for many years, and now I know why!

Also on this trip and the reason I got so fucking fat….. I went the next day to another great local restaurant: http://www.staraada.ba/ Had a real stomach filling lunch over here as well.

Mala Stanica (old train station) Banja Luka (BH) 8.6 out of 10

Visited the gorgeous town of Banja Luka back in September 2016, well known for their woman to man ratio of 7/1…. as the saying is; the most beautiful women from Europe come from Banja Luka and for every man there are 7 women….:-) But I’m here for the food, not the women…. (just in case…

Restaurant Noyan Tun Yerevan 7.8 out of 10

My very first trip to beautiful Armenia, of course going to the capital of Yerevan.

Just a quick food lovers review…. It is not only about the high-class restaurants! For me it is about pureness tradition, flavors, surroundings, feelings and much much more. And being back in one of my favorite Italian villages (where I was after 5 years when I got married in this area). We stumbled across this…
