Jakarta food tour by restaurant Sulawesi-Bali-Sumatra

For me Indonesia is one of the best food countries in the world, so much diversity, spices, heritage and authentic foods. Each island and province with their own background and food culture. The last 3 days I was there my customer took me to taste the difference between traditional Sulawesi (Manado), Balinese and Sumatran food….

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…

It has been long since I last trashed a restaurant….

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…
