Travel the globe – 10 of our favourite restaurants in the worldCategories All posts0 Comments
The world has a lot to offer – especially in culinary terms. These 10 top the list of the World’s 50 Best Restaurants.
So here we go.
Chef: Rasmus Kofoed
The surprising tasting menu usually consists of up to 20 individual dishes, such as chicken with morels, hops and kale.
The best restaurant in the world (and therefore also the best restaurant in Europe) is surrounded by the largest park in the Østerbro district. And the interior of the locale is equally as green. Guests dine on the 8th floor with a view of nature. And with nature on the plates. The menus change seasonally and the restaurant has been awarded three Michelin stars.

Rank 7 of the best restaurants in the world goes to Brazil. As the name suggests, everything here revolves around pork, used as a whole in a nose-to-tail manner. The various parts of the animal end up on the table either as a tasting menu or à la carte. A fast food version is also available, with the food served through the restaurant’s window.

Octopus, habanero ink and ayocote come together to create a harmonious symphony of flavors.
The best restaurant in North America and 5th best restaurant in the world, Pujol beckons to Mexico. Gourmets put up with long waits to try the signature dish Mole Madre, Mole Nuevo. Arranged in concentric circles, the sauce is aged for a full 1,500 days. Four years of waiting, which, according to foodies, is definitely worth it – and tastes terrific.

Panchinos stuffed with beluga caviar: the cuisine at Disfrutar – which roughly translates to “enjoy” – is a welcome surprise.
Opened in 2014, the creative chefs can proudly present two Michelin stars and second place among the best restaurants in Europe. Very well deserved, because everything revolves around flavor at the relatively new establishment. The modern, contemporary ambience is enjoyable as well.
