Eat to live or live to eat?

Amazing World Food Volume Two starting with Japan

Amazing World Food Volume Two Amazing World Food Volume Two closely following  “Amazing Food Planet Earth Volume one” featuring my favorite food from all over this wonderful world. I’m not pretending to be a food critic I’m just highlighting some memorable food I have enjoyed over the years.

Kanazawa

Amazing World Food Volume Two Salmon sashimi with salmon caviar sprinkled with edible gold leaf.  The gold leaf is used in jewelry, cosmetics etc as well as the edible product you see here.

Shabu Shabu at The Ginza

Amazing World Food Volume Two Wagyu beef at Shabusen at the Ginza, a terrific restaurant for Shabu Shabu, go at lunch time for special prices. I could dedicate this whole post to Japanese cuisine which is my favorite food, however I do that in another photo blog.

 Itaewon in Korea

Amazing World Food Volume Two This particular street in Seoul where all the restaurants are looks very ordinary through the day but it comes alive when night falls. It is the best bar restaurant area I have ever seen anywhere in the world.

Korean Street food

French food in Seoul

Amazing World Food Volume Two To be honest I’m not a huge fan of Korean food which is mainly due to ignorance, in future I must try ta few more dishes. Consequently here I am in Seoul eating french food, an entree of prawns, avocado & egg followed by steak tartare. 

Steak Tartare

Amazing World Food Volume Two As I have found over the years this is a very tasty dish but too much for one person, better to share next time.

Lisbon in Portugal

Amazing World Food Volume Two A wonderful city for food & wine, in fact it quickly became one of my favorite European cities. 

What an amazing atmosphere

Amazing World Food Volume Two I’m sure this restaurant has not changed for hundreds of years. 🙂

One of the 6,000 restaurants.

Amazing World Food Volume Two TripAdvisor show around 6,000 restaurants is Lisbon so I’m guessing nobody eats at home. 🙂

The cakes & tarts

Amazing World Food Volume Two My downfall, how can I possibly resist?

Amsterdam 

Amazing World Food Volume Two Let’s start with breakfast in a private home with two suites for rent.

A light lunch at Cafe de Prins

Amazing World Food Volume Two Rated by TripAdvisor #322 of 3,241 Restaurants in Amsterdam. A fabulous baguette washed down with a Heineken.

Dinner at De Belhamel, lamb cooked to perfection.

Amazing World Food Volume Two TripAdvisor rate #93 of 3,241 Restaurants in Amsterdam. Here is the Michelin guide description; This art nouveau style restaurant is located at the confluence of two canals and has a delightful terrace overlooking the water. Influences from France and Italy combine to deliver tasty dishes with clearly defined flavours.    

Manhattan Island New York City

Amazing World Food Volume Two Food in the big apple is amazing, Gallagher’s lived up to it’s reputation as being on of New York’s best steakhouses, in fact my Surf & Turf could have fed two people easily.

Aged beef at Gallagher’s

Amazing World Food Volume Two

All fresh beef is aged for at least few days and up to several weeks to allow enzymes naturally present in the meat to break down the muscle tissue, resulting in improved texture and flavor. These days, most beef is aged in plastic shrink-wrap—a process known as wet-aging.  All fresh beef is aged for at least few days and up to several weeks to allow enzymes naturally present in the meat to break down the muscle tissue, resulting in improved texture and flavor.
