The Spice Route

  • The Spice Route The Imperial, New Delhi. India. This was the great discovery of this first trip to India. We were twice, in 5 days, for dinner. The selections of curries from 5 regions is splendid but nothing compared when they are served in your table. we tried in total 6 different curries. I have to return fort the taster's menu. Price for the food is very reasonable. Notice the exaggerated overprice and taxes on wines. Make your reservation, they have only two turns by night

A great discovery. It is impossible to get there without a tip. It deserves the time you take out from the principal tracks of the tourist attractions in Delhi/New Delhi. The selection of Kerala Curries is fantastic and cheap (we tried 4).

Try to go there for lunch to see the artificial lake, it is important to have a reservation...

Casa Marcelo

  • Casa Marcelo. Rua Hortas, 1. 15705 Santiago de Compostela. Tel +34981558580. This extraordinary place is another Helena Martínez's contribution. They have a fixed menu 75€. This unique and inventive place offered me one of the best meals ever. All dishes were prepared with local ingredients, re-inventing the flavours, combining textures and colours. We had a local wine Lalama also based on a combination of local grapes, mark it on your list. They have only 33 seats, make your reservation. I am wishing to return.

Gregorio García's cuisine is just exquisite, prices more than reasonable, the service perfect and the cellar is large and very good. Also, you can try to have tapa with a beer of just to have breakfast.

Restaurante Pujol

  • Restaurante Pujol
  • Francisco Petrarca 254
    Col. Polanco
    11570 Mexico City
  • Tel. / Fax 5545 4111 5545 3507
Pujol is reputed to be one of the best restaurants in Mexico. It is interesting and creative. I found my last visit much improved from previous visits in that flavors were very subtle and combinations made actual sense. They have a large selection of wines. Although the food and service is excellent, I do not care for the decor, since although appropriately minimalist, its being small and having no windows makes me slightly claustrophobic. Overall though, we had a very good time.
