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…

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. And while all salespeople go the same way, into the city….I like to go exactly the other way, outside the city. Because as we all know….tourist food is in the…

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! I fell in love with this country, the people, the nature, their driving skills (just like mine….) and of course, most important, the food…

Stara Ada Banja Luka (BH) no score

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. But I did not score or write anything down. I can recommend this place when you like to have the perfect outside…

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. Being here on business, unfortunately I had just 1 day to experience all culinary challenges of this country…. but luckily I was driving so I could stop sometimes in the smaller villages as well. I stopped at a local market…

DeRozario Helmond 8.5 out of 10

Quick lunch with my sister and mother for the celebration of the birthday of my late father (who made me start this blog… after he died). Did not know about this new restaurant, DeRozario.nl but it was enough of a surprise to write a short message. Having lunch on a Saturday, which is unique enough…

Sixty Restaurant Moscow (8,5 out of 10)

Woop Woop ! Back in one of my favorite countries and one of my favorite towns: Moscow! Having dinner with some good friends / customers, while they know about my hobby…..so now it is a challenge to show me the hottest place in town. So we went up to the 60th floor (officially 63rd now,…

Palazzo Barbini Casteligione di Lago (10 out of 10)

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…

De Zwaan Etten-Leur (*) (NL) (8,4 out of 10)

Having an unexpected dinner this summer at one of the best known restaurants in the Netherlands, at least for the southern part. Not knowing about my hobby, I was invited here fot a 4 course meal, and what a treat it was. This 1 Michelin star restaurant deserves it name, the Swan, being elegant and…

The Jane Antwerp (**) 9.6 out of 10 (!)

Very unexpected, but strange enough I forgot to review one of the most popular restaurants in and around Antwerp, Visited them twice, once for dinner and once for lunch (which is the same, a part from the different starting and finishing time….) First time 6 months after opening somewhere at the end of 2014 and…

Tropical Los Alcazares 8.1 out of 10

You won’t believe it, but I have just made the time to write about one of my favorite restaurants in Spain! I have visited this restaurant at least 6 – 7 time over the past 5 years. The very first time I remember I wasn’t shocked as much as I have been the last 3…

Marea Los Alcazares / Narejos 7.1 out of 10

Visited this relatively new restaurant this May 2016. Looking trendy from the outside, still Spanish on the inside…..they never learn….. but it is their culture so what can you expect? (http://mareanarejos.com/) And yet again the most terrible Samsung pictures ever…. time for a new camera! (crowd funding maybe….??) And still sorry for the slow rate…

B23 Antwerp (9 out of 10)

Wow, I’m back !!! Finally !!! Sorry again for waiting all this time, due to a lost recipe & notions book as well as a loss of some photo’s I did not have the content I wanted. But now we are back, and let me start with this great restaurant: B23 with a great inspiring…

Costes Budapest (9 out of 10)

  Unbelievable, one of my favorite restaurants of last year, and I did not place it on my site! To be honest, I am having a big problem since my last post…..somebody stole my precious “carnet de table”. Which is my writing and reviewing book of every restaurant I have visited over the past 3…

Restaurant Zarzo Eindhoven 8.6 out of 10

Damn, I am a terrible blogger…. Because I go out so many times a week all around Europe, I have a book full of writings and reviews and a memory stick full of photos. I just lack time to publish all these great dinners….. So from now on, I will try to at least post…

Klein Constantia Ekeren (8.2 out of 10)

Celebration dinner at Klein Constantia Ekeren http://www.kleinconstantia.be It was funny since last year I was in South-Afrika, at “klein constantia” So I was very curious what this place could offer us, and what a pleasant surprise it was! Nice entry, good music, perfect atmosphere, quickly we focussed if the menu was matching. So what did we…

Trattoria Del Liberale Genova (8.7 out of 10)

It has been long, very very long since my last post. Due to being busy creating my own (food) company (what else….) I had to get my priorities straight, so I am very sorry for the 3 readers that actually read this blog on a regular base… Let me quickly tell you about this great…
