A new way to enjoy dinners


Traditional restaurants are off the hook in cities like Barcelona or London where a new way to enjoy dinners exists. This restaurants are more peculiar and underground, it is not about creating a new cuisine but a new way dinner experience.

In Barcelona a very one of a kind dry cleaner name Dont Tell was founded in 2009. In fact, the dry cleaning business is more a facade, it hides a restaurant inside that you will not find unless you have a reservation and the code to get in. You can find more information about how get your “clothes cleaned” on the restaurant’s website : http://www.tintoreriadontell.com/

London is full of underground restaurants. Like Dont Tell in Barcelona there are secret restaurants, supper clubs and even restaurants that change their location every week. You can find a list of this underground restaurants in the Time Out website : http://www.timeout.com/london/restaurants/features/8001/London-s-underground-restaurants.html

Bon Apetit!


France has always been famous for its cheese, wine, crêpes and croissants. However today we want to introduce you to a very ancient tradition from Alsace that is a well kept secret. This small region has maintained a typical dish called “tarte flambée which actually means “flamed pie”. The pie has a rectangular or circular shaped dough, always topped with onion and “crème fraîche” and some other ingredients.

If you happened to be in this part of the world, a region between two countries  with a rich culture, you should not focus only in food. As well as having one of the delicious “tartes flambées” (also called Flammkuchen in German) you should visit Strasbourg, World Heritage site where the Cathedral is really worth a visit and you will have to  discover the rest by yourself!

Bon Apetit and Bon Voyage!
