Here’s a short summary of the eating experience from my trip. Some are Michelin rated, but all good! St Moritz: Roberto’s – Mid-range Italian food. Good wine list and range of Italian dishes. Veltliner Keller – homely Italian. It’s OK. Hotel Kronenhof – Kronenstübli – Cute place. Lovely decor. Creative food. Maybe worth a visit. Badrutt’s Palace […]

The whisky bar at the Waldhaus hotel in St Moritz is the largest in the world according to the Guiness Book of Records. Called the Devil’s Place, it houses over 2,500 whiskeys. When I visited there was a TV crew from Austrian doing a spot on the bar and I ended up in the segment.

Every Italian food lover has had spaghetti Bolognese. But to see what the benchmark is, the sources said the Pappagallo Restaurant in Bologna is the one to go to. The restaurant has been around since 1919 and is considered one of the most important restaurant in Bologna. Our lunch certainly lived up to the benchmark, The pasta […]

Modena, 20 February 2017. A lunch at Franceschetta 58, the second restaurant of Massimo Bottura in Modena. The restaurant seats about 32 people. It’s pretty casual with staff in runners. There are two tasting menus. Four courses at 48€ and six courses at 65€. The restaurant is located about a 20 minute walk from the edge of […]

Here are some of the places I ate at when I was in town for the month of June: Ask for Luigi, Miku, Jules Bistro, Chambar, Wildebeest, Vij’s, Meat and Bread, Bauhaus, Tojo’s, Zest, Flying Pig, Le Crocodile, Zest, Hawksworth, Hamaei, Tacofino, Floata, and Sun Sui Wah. Ask for Luigi is Vancouver Magazine’s 2015 restaurant of the year, it’s in Railtown, a pretty sketchy part of […]

For a gourmand, being in Paris for 2 weeks is like drinking from the fountain. Where to go, so many choices. I found the blog Paris By Mouth and using that as a guide, ended up at Au Passage, Frenchie, Septime, Pierre Gagnaire, L’EPICURISTE, Restaurant ES, and LeDoyen; some old favourites like Relais de L’Entrecote; and […]

This is the sixth year I’ve shot a coffee-related competition. Each time it’s different because of the venue and the lighting. Today, it was the Australia latte art championship. The format is each competitor has to reproduce the design of three drinks they’ve photographed. The challenge is to get a shot of the competitor and […]

Here are my selects from the last day of competition.

Update: Here are 7 restaurants I’ve been to that are on the 2012 World Top 50 restaurants: Per Se (6), Dinner (9), The Fat Duck (13), The Ledbury (14), Le Bernardin (19), The French Laundry (43), Bras (47) — After part 1, here’s the summary of dining experiences in 2011 spanning New York, Stockholm, Zurich, […]

Not all Michelin 3 stars are the same and not all are to our taste. Of the ones we ate in here is a summary: The Fat Duck, Bray, UK. The most theatrical and exciting to visit. Original, nothing like it and impeccable wine list and service. One of the few places to put on […]

After Jake and Guy raved about their meal at Matsuhisa we had to check it out. They were right. Excellent new-style Japanese food from a restaurant in the Nobu family of restaurants. One of our salads was the Spinach, dried miso and shrimp: The Seafood Dynamite dish – my favourite: Sea Bass with Truffle: Superb […]

A quintessentially American dinner of take away ribs and chicken wings from Hickory House Ribs followed by ice cream of an unusual, but delicious, flavour.

Lunch at David’s Hutte after a 20 minute walk from the village. The classics of ribs, chicken wings and schnapps!

Getting stuck into Austrian food and scenery after being away for 3 years is pretty easy and nice!

The Waterside Inn one of the three 3-star Michelin restaurants in the UK and is a 3 minute walk from the Fat Duck in Bray. To have 2 of the 3 3-star Michelin restaurants so close to each other in the same town is interesting. The restaurant is the opposite to the experimental and theatrical […]

The Curry Corner is an amazing Indian restaurant in Cheltenham. Various people and reviewers have said it’s the best Indian restaurant in the UK, and therefore, probably the world. So we went there for lunch and we were just blown away. Amazing samosas, nann, and sublime curries. The desserts are also simply amazing. Pictures don’t […]

We had lunch with our dear friend Janine from Zurich at Dinner by Heston. It was a return visit for Kim and I and the first time for Greta and Mia. This time we had a table right beside the kitchen. Here are some photos of the restaurant and the scallops, angus beef and chocolate […]

12 November. Off to spend a day in London to see England play Spain at Wembley and have some lunch. There aren’t many chinese restaurants with a Michelin star and fewer tea houses. Yauatcha is a “modern reinterpretation of the old Chinese teahouse”. It works. It’s funky (probably a bit too much), excellent food and […]
