My Top 3 Restaurants In 2016

I’ve tried a few Michelin starred restaurants last year, most of them were in London, 2 of them were based in Amsterdam, 1 was in Paris.

Here are some of my favourites.

No.1 The Ledbury

This is the only restaurant brought me surprise in every single dish. Lunch time 4 course set menu is quite a good deal. But very difficult to book.

  • Food 9
  • Price 8
  • Service 9
  • Tableware 10

No.2 Vinkeles (Amsterdam)

I like seafood in general, and they are really good at seafood dishes. Price level is also very friendly, atmosphere is good too.

  • Food 9
  • Price 8
  • Service 8
  • Tableware 9

No.3 Dinner by Heston Blumenthal

Love the idea of rediscovery traditional British recipes: the meat fruit was amazing, and, while the freshly made ice cream was perfect for summer, the rest of the desserts left me  unimpressive.

  • Food 8
  • Price 7
  • Service 9
  • Tableware 8

Some Michelin starred restaurants I had in 2016 were horrible.

The Clove Club: put seafood and fruit in the same freezer, serve with broken dishes.

Galvin La Chapelle: food was overrated, they also didn’t wash dinnerware properly.

La Tour d’Argent: worst way to spend €400.
