Champeaux

I remember visiting Paris as a young man, and trying to avoid the metro station Rer de Chatelet-Les Halles as much as I could, for the bustle of the thousands of people crossing or the suspicious environment of the Les Halles area. Gone were the times that area was the “womb” of the city, being home of […]

Akrame

Akrame Benallal may not be under the World’s 50 Best spotlight and other publications, like others whose the PR work is higher than the chefs work or cuisines. But since he opened his namesake restaurant, acknowledgment has not been missing. From Michelin stars to opening other businesses and restaurants, perseverance is this young chef’s middle name, even when […]

Le Duc

Having just landed in Paris, still without a lunch reservation for Saturday, the choice was easy – trying to get a table at Le Duc, since we were already very convinced by our dear Aiste’s (Luxeat) recommendations and praises for a long time now. A call from our concierge, and 10 minutes of Uber after, […]

Ichiban

We’re in the middle of the political silly season, with our rulers shooting attacks and excuses everywhere, typical among our governors and their opposition. But don’t worry, I didn’t change the topics of the blog, I just want to thank a certain range of politicians that made a lot more for Portugal than many of […]

Many words have been written, many blogs, much bustle in social media paired with a tunned cuisine, itself with the hand […]

Puro 4050

Puro 4050 is one of the most talked about restaurants in Porto since its opening, located in the agitated Largo de São Domingos, “it had everything” to work even before it opened… As if “having everything” would be so simple and easy, but in reality, after Cantina 32 (see), Luís Américo and Inês Mergulhão could […]

StreetXO

David Muñoz no longer needs introductions, since in 2010 he ripped apart Madrid’s gastronomic scene, winning the first Michelin star with his DiverXO  (nowadays the only three-starred restaurant in the city), in a creative fusion, radical and even theatrical of the Mediterranean cuisine, with Asian flavors and ingredients. But don’t be fooled if you think […]

Carousel

When the idea of a Pop-Up restaurant comes to my mind, I admit my thoughts are not always the best, inexperienced cooks from a reality show, dishes with little content in substance or flavor, not very adequate work conditions, among many things that make me feel reluctant about this type of project. However, in 2014, […]

Ametsa – With Arzak Instruction

With Nahm leaving an empty space in COMO The Halkin, after they moved to Bangkok (see), the Ametsa was born in 2013, more precisely the Ametsa with Arzak Instruction, a not so happy name for the first adventure of Juan Mari Arzak and his daughter Elena outside the Basque Country and his magical Arzak (***Michelin). About the parchment of its creators […]

London – Eneko at One Aldwych

London is increasingly a gastronomic mecca, being not only a desirable destination for all the foodies but also for chefs who establish there or open spaces in the city – like Heston Blumenthal, Daniel Boulud, the Arzak family, David Muñoz, Anne-Sophie Pic, Virgilio Martínez, Alain Ducasse or Pierre Gagnaire, just to name a few. The truth is that […]
