Always searching out delicious baked goods, we read about Emmerys somewhere or other and as it was literally around the corner from our apartment in Copenhagen, we decided to give it a try – and yes, it totally worked out. Emmerys is a beautiful food store, with multiple locations in Copenhagen, but with a very [..]

This bakery was mentioned in a couple of articles that we found – apparently it is a favourite of Claus Meyer, chef of Noma, according to an article in the latest edition of the Monocle. We thought we’d try it out – we went to the sandwich shop at the department store Magasin and we [..]

As I mentioned before – the most important thing when coming to a new city is to find all the good bakeries. And at Bo Bech, we found a bakery that while it produces only one product – a loaf of bread – it produces what I would have to consider as the best bread [..]

One of the first things that you need to figure out about any city is where the good bakery is. And Copenhagen certainly has its share of good bakeries. Lagkagehuset is one of them, with about 10 locations around the city. We tried their Muesli bread – covered in pumpkin seeds, whole wheat inside, with [..]

Yes, I know that we’ve been here before, and written about it before. But it’s so good, that it needs writing about again. We were on our way to the very beautiful Musée de l’Orangerie this afternoon when we took a detour and took the M12 Metro line all the way to the Pasteur stop [..]

Amazing. Not only does he produce the best pastries that I have had in North America – and better than many I have had in France, but he has replicated his business in North Vancouver and opened a Kitsilano branch. He will be busy. Saturday morning – about 11:30 (late start) – we pick up [..]

So – after reading a blog about churros – we hunted down the Xurreria (the Catalan spelling of churreria) on Banys Nous in the Bario Gotic (I don’t know the exact address but it is a few doors down from a milk bar called La Granja (c/ Banys Nous 4, Gotico)). Twice we went by [..]

This is one of the best patisseries in Spain and can hold its own around the world. In fact, it is famous for the world’s best chocolate cake, an award that pastry chef Carles Mampel won a few years ago. Try the chocolate cake or for that matter any of the other beautifully presented desserts [..]

Bakeries occupy this special place in my heart – the good ones are run by people who love food, who put that love into what they do, and produce an exceptional product that just makes you happy. Flour is this kind of a place. Sunday morning – pouring rain and blowing wind, I was going [..]

Head over to Commercial drive if you need your fix of tasty vegetarian/vegan cuisine. Don’t expect a chic restaurant – this is more of a cafeteria-style affair with a dessert/bakery display case out front and a hot table with a lot of dishes that have an indian or asian bent to them with many lentil [..]

Argentina

After our experience at Cabana las Lilas, we wanted to figure out this whole Argentinian beef thing and knew that we had to visit a parrilla again to compare/contrast and see if we could find the ‘best steak of your life’ as some of the travel guides seemed to promise.

Asian

She had tracked down Osha Thai as being one of the better Thai food options in the city, and as we were staying downtown, we decided to head to the 2nd Street location. Who knew that New Westminster would have an authentic thai place with a thai owner/chef in the middle of all the mediocre food. Apparently this restaurant is a venture by a previous chef at the popular Banana Leaf malaysian restaurant chain in Vancouver.

Bistro

A local french bistro just off the main pedestrian walkway near the centre of Reims, this bistro with a red awning was recommended by the sommelier at Veuve Clicquot – in fact, he said that the fries were the main attraction. I swear that the staff (ba-da-boom, ba-da-bing!) from East Side Mario’s was holding the WPE staff hostage in the back of the kitchen and decided to take over food preparation for the day.

Brunch

Bakeries occupy this special place in my heart – the good ones are run by people who love food, who put that love into what they do, and produce an exceptional product that just makes you happy. I’ve said before that I think “lets just go here” is a recipe for disaster when walking around town in terms of food, but once in a while, it just works out – as it did at the Continental.

Bib Gourmand

So La Rotonde is one of the Parisian institutions of Montparnasse – its list of famous figures of the 20th century that have drunk, eaten, and discussed the meaning of life behind its doors would make up most of the early 20th century Who’s Who of the literary and art. Everything a ‘Bib Gourmand’ should be – would definitely go again.

Beer

I had read about this place in the Wallpaper Guide for Copenhagen, and as I knew we were going to try Mikkeller Bar, I figured we should make sure that we also check out the competition at Nørrebro Bryghus. While the Danes aren’t as famous for their beers as the Belgians, Dutch, or Germans, they are off to a good start with Mikkel Borg Bjergsø’s ‘Mikkeller’ Brewery.

Budapest

So for future reference, here is some information I gleaned on the net about different places to eat in Budapest.
