They called them “Guimauve” here. You can find the best ones with the most exotic flavours in a modest boulangerie nearby the Luxembourg gardens called” Piccadis” ( 8 Rue Guy Lussac”. The “caramel au beurre saléé ” is to die for!
Great place in the Barceloneta neighborhood ( Barcelona) where sometimes restaurants are tourists traps . From the olives with orange peel they offer you as you seat , to the desserts , a great experience for paella and fish lovers. La paella “del senyoret” , the “arroz negro” and the “lubina a la sal ” are amazing . Great service too.
Just being here you feel instantly healthier and brighter. It’s a mostly vegetarian restaurant ( in Barcelona, carrer Tallers) but there is fish in the menu too. There are good raw and gluten free options.The grilled watermelon is my favorite starter and the juices from Teresa’s juicery are the best . Great place for brunch: eggs benedict to die for!
One of the graffitis I saw in Rome said: “why they called it tourist season if we can’t shoot them?”.
I missed the fried shiso leaves… but I loved to come here with Shota and Rinko the day before their wedding.
This place is for honeymooners/Instagram addicts/ Cirque du soleil fans. The rest of us , we can skip it and go to the next ramen shop on the subway. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a fun place to be if you love “trompe d’oeil” ( “it’s not an egg, the yolk is pumpkin!!”). But after the first surprise, the flavours are bland. The single piece of meat was really tasty. The rest, just style over substance. More than molecular , this is a kawaii kitchen.
in Akasaka ( Tokyo) a classic, relaxing and wonderful sushi place with a great sushi master: during our meal, he said he never eats at breakfast time because he likes to work hungry. A good advice for almost everything in life. Hard to follow if you eat here often because you feeel compelled to eat everything the master puts in front of you! Spectacular ika ( calamari) with salt.
