Restaurant Location Doug's Comments
Tanta Chicago, Illinois On your next trip to Chicago we HIGHLY recommend you put Tanta at the top of your list of restaurants to visit. I can guarantee that you will not regret it. In fact you too will be recommending it to complete  strangers in your cab!  Enjoy Tanta!
Hugo's Houston, Texas Great regional Mexican food. You won't find your typical tacos and burritos and enchiladas and chips and salsa here at all. But what you will find are some very unique and bold flavours and grasshoppers! Yes, grasshoppers! And several different types of mole, all of which are fabulous. If you like Mexican food, especially with a "twist," then Hugo's is a must!
Farang Stockholm, Sweden Truly amazing! It is now our favourite restaurant in the world. Yes, the world! An interesting fusion of Malaysian food and spices with… whatever they want! Well worth the trip to Stockholm just to eat here.
Don Juan’s Bossier City, Louisiana Some of the best California-Mex food you will ever find on the planet. The best ingredients; the freshest protein; the chips and salsa are second to none; and the drinks are marger-licous!
Le Chouchen Calais, France The best creperie in the world! (At least in my opinion.) Totally fresh ingredients and prepared by the owner chef with incredible grace and charm!
Aromi Prague, Czech Republic Amazing variety of seafood! Amazing how they prepared it! And outstanding service. You can’t beat that combination.
Kelly Liken Vail, Colorado, USA Fresh! Fresh! Fresh! This is farm-to-fork at its best!
Tree House Café Salt Spring Island, British Columbia, Canada A Hobbit House in Ganges serving consistently creative food under a tree!
Ellerbe Fine Foods Fort Worth, Texas, USA Local, seasonal food prepared with a Louisiana flare!
Joel Roubichon Las Vegas, Nevada, USA You just can’t beat this place! The quality of “everything” is incredible!
