db bistro moderne—home of the famed “db Burger” that launched the gourmet burger craze—is at the midtown crossroads of fashion and theater. Reminiscent of a contemporary bistro in France, this award-winning restaurant reflects Chef Daniel Boulud’s intrinsic love for soulful seafood dishes steeped in French tradition.
Casa de Valencia is an old hotel in the Pricesa district, about 500m walk from the Palacio Real de Madrid (Royal Palace of Madrid). Opened by the King himself in 1975, this place has seen better times. But the restaurant remains one of the best place to eat Valencia-style paella in the capital city.
It’s summer and time for crayfish!!
This place has become our canteen in Shenzhen. Very good food at a reasonable price.
Cheap and good Tsukiji grade sushi was what this shop that was established in 1800s promises. Wasn’t expecting much, and it still turned out to be quite disappointing.
Hsinchu is the semiconductor capital of the world – over 60% of all chips were made here. As a result, it made millionaires and billionaires of many of these techies working here. So what do some of the richest man in Taiwan eat?
Spain has become the gastronomy capital of Europe in recent years, due to innovative chefs and artisans like Ferran and Albert Adria, Jordi Roca and his brother Joan and Josep, and the late Santi Santamaria (who died while in Singapore, RIP).

When you visit Barcelona’s Boqueria market, come hungry. You will not want to leave without having a meal at Bar Pinotxo, a 14-seat—make that 14-stool—establishment that is nearing its 100th anniversary. Proprietor Juanito Bayen—known to all as Pinotxo (pee-no-cho)—greets even newcomers like family. Don’t bother asking for a menu. Just ask “What’s good today?”
There are many outstanding “fish” restaurants but Isshin stood out among all as specialising in Sakana (肴) or drinking cuisine, so that’s a bit more unique. Strangely Sakana also means fish in Japanese, so Isshin does Drinking Fish Cuisine, if that make any sense to you.
Every tourist to Barcelona will visit the Sagrada Familia. And when you are done with the sights, you usually move away from that area because the food was pretty crap. Not anymore, you can always make a detour to La Paradeta.
