Budapest might not be the first destination that comes to mind when thinking about food, but let me tell you – it doesn’t disappoint the hungry tourist. I visited Budapest for 5 days, ate and drank a lot, and now I’m here to help you experience the best Budapest has to offer.
Strangas is a dessert boutique owned by the Greek pastry chef Nikolaous Strangas. Previously he worked at the Hilton Hotel in Copenhagen followed by the Italian-inspired Michelin restaurant Era Ora. A Greek entering an Italian restaurant in Denmark – sounds like a beginning of a joke, eh? Strangas’ pastry skills, however, are no laughing matter.
This is the second installment of our New York City diary based on our visit during March. You can read the first savory part here and about our visit to the two Michelin star restaurant Atera here. At the end of the post you can find a map with all places mentioned as well as many others to satisfy your sweet tooth.
In every city I visit I try to find a piece of Paris. The fun thing about patisseries in Tokyo? Their sweets are less sweet, so you can eat more and feel less guilty. This is not to take from their beauty of course. The desserts are made to perfection and look like a work of art. The downside is that not every place allows you take photos, and in some places we were told to stop after shooting a few pictures. They don’t allow it even if you buy something from them. Before heading to Tokyo I’ve tracked down some of the most exciting places to get my sweet fix. Plus you’re in for a nice surprise at the end of the post – one amazing foodies heaven! You can thank me later (preferably with a cake). Read More
