Mini Punjab’s, Mumbai

Our first encounter with Mini Punjab’s was a chicken bhuna frankie at 2 o’clock in the morning, after our flight just landed. It was my first food item in India, and it was the best tasting chicken bhuna I’ve ever tasted. We then went back for sit-down meals…. and boy, were we hooked. We kept…

Fjellskal Fisketorget, Bergen

You gotta eat seafood when you’re in Bergen This restaurant is right on the waterfront, and seems to be very popular with tourists. It’s on the other side of the harbour from Bryggen. Actually, you get a pretty nice view of Bryggen from the restaurant. This is not a formal restaurant – it has more…

Barrafina, Soho

Supposedly the best tapas outside of Spain. The food is definitely tasty, but I can’t say it’s the best outside of Spain. It’s on the expensive side though – probably normal-ish by London Soho standard, but very much expensive compared to tapas in Spain. The queue is long. We were there 15 mins before dinner…
