If you are looking for Italian food that redefines presence, then head over to Modena where you can find Osteria Francescana. Spearheaded by superstar chef Massimo Bottura, the three-Michelin-star restaurant serves only “food with atitude”. Bottura believes in transcending over ingredients. Expect to time travel via his delectable recreation of historical Italian memories and emotions.

When in Tokyo, don’t forget to head over to L’Effervescence. Also a Michelin-starred establishment, the restaurant is helmed by celebrity chef Namae Shinobu, who is known for leading the French culinary movement in Japan. This year, it’s all about giving local staples such as ramen and gyoza a great makeover. So expect nothing less than fancy when you visit this joint!

#3. Recycled food in Brighton, England

Minimising food wastage is an increasingly important feat in Brighton. While the city is not exactly the leading location when it comes to this movement, it’s definitely a growing force on the map. Many restaurants in this city are now joining the cause, turning food waste into edible delights. Sounds quite bizarre a concept, but if you take a look at Silo, Brighton’s answer to eco-chic gastronomic experience, it will all make sense. The restaurant prides itself in delivering a preindustrial food system, with a tagline of ‘Reuse, Reduce, Share, Repeat’.

#4. Gastronomic singularity in Lima, Peru

At Virgilio Martrtinez’s Central Restaurant, a single origin ingredient can slingshot an entire experience of culture, history and taste of a dish. An eminent chef in his own right, Martinez is always quick to share his inspiration: apparently, when the location of a Peruvian produce takes precedence in the creation of a dish, a cuisine’s story becomes more vivid to the tastebuds. When at Central, don’t forget to sample their specialities such as Patagonian roasted lamb, Galician grilled whole fish, wild potatoes from Andes, and Amazonian fruit platter.

#5. Insectful dinners in London, England

Weird as it may seem, eating insects are apparently a trend gaining steadfast traction, thanks to the increasing global focus on sustainability. One such establishment that religiously practices insect eating, or entomophagy, is Wahaca. Led by renowned chef Thomasina Miers, the Oaxaca-inspired Mexican food franchise is known for selling insects and incorporating them in the menu. Here, you can find protein-rich bugs such as grasshoppers delighdully seasoned with garlic, salt, chilli and lime, and served with fresh tortillas and handmade salsa.

Located in various parts of London, England

#6. Pure meat experience in New York City, USA


After many documentaries highlighting the horrors of animal cruelty, it’s understandable why many people are increasingly fearful of eating meat. Desiring to eat ethically sourced veal without feeling existential guilt? Head over to Dan Barber’s Blue Hill restaurant. Stepping in the polished Manhattan eatery, one can expect its menu to be as equally glistening. Here, delicious veal meat is taken from breastfed calves that roam freely on vast farms. Blue Hill’s method is not only paving the way for a better economy for dairy farmers, it also sets better farming habits in the long run.

Located at 75 Washington Place, Manhattan, New York City, USA.
