“Whenever I travel I’m generally wary of the restaurants that are written in every guidebook and blog. I always expect them to be over-publicized. But let me tell you – a late and over-the-top lunch at Contramar lived up to all expectations.The tostadas were topped with the freshest, mouth-melting tuna, and the famous red and green grilled red snapper served with soft corn tortillas was basically my definition of heaven on a plate. . return to CDMX exclusively for this meal. “

“I can whip up a dozen very memorable meals that I ate in Paris, but none come to mind like a wine-filled lunch at L’Avant Comptoir. This 6th arrondissement tapas bar is cozy and cozy. , and the various menu items hang from little cards on the ceiling. I was standing at the bar and ordered way too much food – a grapefruit marinated silky tuna tartare, pepper cold cuts and creamy cheese and stinky – and it was all amazing. “

“During my studies in Barcelona I missed bagels and lox very much, my New York staple. Then I discovered Quimet & Quimet, a cupboard-sized tapas restaurant in Barcelona, ​​and I discovered something even more delicious: a montadito (open sandwich) on crispy bread topped with creamy goat cheese, smoked salmon and a drizzle of honey. It quickly became my new comfort food and I would often return to Quimet & Quimet for a bagel in Barcelona. All the other tapas are also delicious, especially the different montaditos topped with everything from smoked oysters and caviar to tuna brisket with olives and peppers. “

“IMO, Reykjavik is an extremely underrated food town, but for the most part dining out can be very expensive. One of the best (and by far the cheapest) thing I ate on my trip to Iceland was a hot dog from Bæjarins Beztu Pylsur, a bit off a pedestrianized street in Reykjavik. The hot dog itself is crisp, crunchy, and juicy, and there’s something phenomenal about it. sweet mustard on top. In fact, I liked it so much that I bought a poster to hang my New York kitchen to remind me of this amazing street food. “

“Some of the best tacos I’ve ever had are the al pastor tacos at El Fogon in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. They slice up the meat and pineapple right in front of you. They’re SO good.”

“This is an unassuming little place in St. George, Utah that cooked up the best Mexican food I’ve ever had. I’m from SoCal, so I like to think I ate great Mexican food, but hell damn this place blew it all out of the water. Better yet, it was so cheap! “

“I expected to eat amazing food in Tokyo, but I never thought that one of my favorite dishes in Japan would be pizza. Seirinkan, a Neapolitan pizzeria in the Meguro district of Tokyo, was really as good (if not better) than any pizza I’ve eaten in Italy or the US The pizza was perfect as it could be, with a chewy, slightly charred crust and basic but intensely flavorful toppings . “

“I ate a traditional Francesinha sandwich in Porto at a place called Restaurante Dourum, which overlooks the Douro River. This place served absurdly cheap wine, olives, delicious bread and the greatest sandwich God ever offered to the man. The glory of the Francesinha The sandwich is indescribable, but it is made of fluffy slices of bread stuffed with ham, smoked pork sausage, cheese and slices of steak. Then it is covered with even more of hot melted cheese and served in a thick tomato sauce that tastes almost like onion soup. It was without a doubt the best sandwich I have ever eaten. And probably the most caloric. “

“Luckily I live in New York so I don’t have to travel too far to this Korean spot in East Village … but I would make a trip. Everything on the menu is amazing, but the corn Stuffed meatballs and mini lobster rolls drizzled with a decadent creamy truffle sauce are two of my all-time favorite bites. “

“I had the best tagliatelle ragliatelle of my life here. I almost cried while eating it, and it only costs 6 euros. Thinking about it makes me want to go back to Italy just to eat it again.”

“I have eaten at more tapas bars in Barcelona than I would like to admit, but Cañete bar is the best of the best. The best seats are at the bar, where you can watch the chefs prepare unique Catalan dishes from the large open kitchen. The motto here is “f your diet”, and that’s exactly what you should be doing. Everything is absurdly good, but the one dish I’ll never forget is the ham croquette – basically a big scoop of mashed potatoes and salted pork – served topped with a mixture of creamy aioli and salsa brava. “
