Amerigo 1934

Amerigo 1934

One of the best meals I’ve had this summer was at Amerigo 1934, an unassuming trattoria located in the sleepy Savigno village in the heart of the Emilian Appennines. Opened in 1934 like one might guess from its name, Amerigo serves traditional Emilian Romagnol cuisine very much influenced by the…

La Cova Fumada, Barcelona

Couldn’t get more old school than La Cova Fumada, a humble workers bar in the neighborhood of Barceloneta. It serves the freshest possible seafood, fried artichokes when in season, and the legendary and very tasty “bomba”, (deep-fried meatball with mashed potatoes, aïoli and spicy sauce), which they invented more than…

Mina, Bilbao

Mina, Bilbao

Mina, Bilbao

Very special cooking at Mina@minarestaurantin Bilbao, which is run by the very talented chef Álvaro Garrido@alvarominaboi. The Basque native draws his inspiration from his travels in Japan and China, but what influences him most is the richness of his native country and its seasons. The restaurant is located just across…

Ikoyi

Ikoyi

One of the most forward-thinking chefs in Europe of his generation, Jeremy Chan founded Ikoyi with his friend Iré Hassan-Odukale in 2017 inspired by Nigerian cuisine, completely new and unheard back then. One Michelin star and 3 years later, Ikoyi has largely outgrown itself. The cooking is still very much about the…

Kol – Mexican in London

A truly memorable dinner at Kol, the just-opened Mexican restaurant by the former Noma chef Santiago Lastra @santiagolas, who was also behind the now legendary Noma pop-up in Mexico a few years ago. Cosy and quiet intimate for London standards, all the action at Kol takes place in the center…
