I am spanish so as you can guess food is in my soul, I don’t call myself a foodie but I am not, I am just a normal spanish that enjoys good quality food, I don’t care about organic nor any of the other fads that are all over the place, I just want local grown food, honestly prepared, fresh and simply delicious.

If you like Japanese cuisine you are going to love this modern fusion take on it for both it’s quality and the cool environment. A true must for any visitor to Vancouver.

Cioppino’s

A refreshing export of mediterranean food and wine knowledge that will make you think you are in Italy or Spain when you close your eyes and realise you are in the new world by the uncomplicated approach, fine dining without the uptight service yet very professional one.

La Paradeta

A true honest local that sells the best seafood you can get in Barcelona, simple… well, spartan but wonderful. A place to go with friends or family in a very informal occasion and make sure you leave at home all your prejudices.

Another gem in London, wonderful Thai cousine at its best in a beautiful restaurant, trendy yet sober, busy but you don’t feel overwhelmed, good service, good everything.

Plum valley

Seems to me I have found another really good chinese restaurant, this time is a cool/trendy/chic place where to eat some delicious dim sum and what not. The menu is not huge because it is done properly, you can tell it has done in place rather than frozen, you can tell the flavours are still there, a nice surprise in the core of china-town which is probably the tackiest area in london.

Another japanese restaurant in this world, another promise of fresh fish and of course, being the mediterranean and a country with such love for fish like Spain (2nd to Japan in fish consumption) you can only expect quite good quality. In fact, spanish cuisine tends not to hide but to amplify flavors and natural ingredients are key so you have to expect they really understand what japanese food is all about, enhancing the base product without distorting the natural flavours.
