If you want a cozy restaurant this is the place. L’Avventura is located in an old cinema from the 1920s. The wall paintings and deco is all original by Nils Asplund, Jöns Thulin and Augusto Conte. The food is Italian, and if you go there you gotta get the fried truffle risotto bowls, and the stracciatella is amazing! And…. the truffle pasta, and…. we’ll go there and try it for yourself!

In the small village of Skåne Tranås in southern Sweden you find a 2 star Michelin restaurant called Daniel Berlin. I had the luck to eat there twice so far, and more times will follow.
The restaurant itself is housed in an old house, and is totally renovated to become a very inviting jet a relaxing atmosphere. And everyone working there is very service minded. Me, well I can sometimes be picky with food. But I like everything here. And it helps that it’s only a 15 minute drive from our summer house.

I found a little gem in Simrishamn today. A small place called Quartey’s, where they make the most delicious fillos. They had other options too, but I went for fillos with a salad. They were filled with a mature cheese, chilli, oats and spinach. I’ve had many in my days, but these were perfect! They even made my favourite drink myntha / lime. And it was as good as mine! 😃😉 So go to little picturesque Simrishamn if you are in Skåne. Look at all the amazing buildings, and then have the best fast food there is in town;)
This Taiwanese/Chinese restaurant is addictive! We went for some of my favourites, tossed wild vegetable and beancurd with sesame oil, string bean with minced pork and mini dry shrimps, steamed chicken dumplings, steamed vegetarian dumplings and spicy wontons.
Interesting facts; Founder Yang Bingyi was born in Shanxi, China. But he moved to Taiwan in 1948 as a result of the Chinese Civil War. He worked for 2 different cooking oil retailers, until he started his own cooking oil shop with his wife in 1958. The name was a combination of his previous employer’s company name Heng Tai Fung and his new supplier’s company name DinMei Oils. Din Tai Fung was founded. 1970 business became slow. So they turned over half the shop to making and selling steamed buns (Xiaolongbao) by hiring chefs from Shanghai where the Xiaolongbao is originally from. The buns and noodles were so popular that the store stopped selling oil and became a restaurant in 1972. The original restaurant is located on Xinyi Road in Taipei. In an article published on January 17, 1993, the New York Times rated Din Tai Fung as one of the top ten gourmet restaurants in the world (Din Tai Fung was the only Chinese or Taiwanese restaurant to receive this accolade).
Further international recognition came in 2010, when Din Tai Fung’s Hong Kong Branch was awarded one Michelin Star; a first for a restaurant from Taiwan.
Today, Din Tai Fung has branches in Japan, the United States, South Korea, Singapore, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Australia, and Thailand.
