Restaurante Miño – entrance.Since I arrived in Barcelona I couldn’t wait to try the local cuisine and have a taste of what Spanish food has to offer.

And I happy to say that Restaurant Miño, not only provided us an OUTSTANDING dinner but also kept the bar super high regarding to Spanish food. What meal my friends, what a meal!!!!

My order

We got excited that night and decided to try some tapas and of course, the famous Spanish Paella, all combined with a super refreshing Sangria. Here is what we got:

  • Sangria for two
  • Tapas – Queso Seco, Tortilla de patatas, and Patatas bravas.
  • Paella Mixta – seafood and pork.

I loved their tapas, It was good to try samples of very traditional Spanish dishes in a single meal. Sangria was extremely good too.

Now turning to the paella, let’s have a very serious talk now. I’m not a seafood fan, I can eat but seafood is never my top preference when eating out. Why having a seafood paella then? Firstly, I like to be surprised, secondly, I like to try the traditional and local cuisine, and finally, I like to take risks.

And, I’m so happy, so fu*ing happy when I get the chance to change my personal preferences for some foods. This paella was one of THE BEST THINGS I’VE EVER EATEN IN MY LIFE!

Seriously people, I dream about it since then. This was just spectacular, I have no adjectives enough to recommend it. Just go there!!!

The verdict

Amazing atmosphere, great service, and outstanding food. Please, do me a favor and go there!

Ramen Goku • Glebe, Sydney

Posted on

Ramen Goku was a REAL finding! Not only because of its super cool name but also its super tasty food! This place really reminded me those family-owned tiny restaurants in Japan.

Amazing service, followed by outstanding food! A must in case you are in Glebe. Actually, let me correct myself: a MUST for every ramen lover out there. ❤

Another great thing about this place, is that you get to pick the broth option for each of their ramen flavors, plus the thickness of the noodles and portion size! Exactly like in Japan!

My order

We were starving that day, so we decided to get a couple of buns, plus the mains:

  • Mine:
    • Cha-Shu Bun – Tender cha-shu filled with lettuce, mayonnaise & sweet sauce.
    • Roast Beef Donburi – A lot of thinly sliced roasted beef with homemade sauce, shallots, sesame on rice.
  • Hubby:
    • Katsu Bun – Chicken katsu filled with lettuce, mayonnaise & special sauce.
    • Cha-Shu Ramen – Tonkotsu broth, egg noodle with a lot of thinly sliced roasted pork, bamboo shoots, shallots, sesame.

Buns were superb! Light and fluffy as I expected, with the right amount of filling.

My beef Donburi was generous and extremely delicious, but the real hero of the night was that Cha-Shu Ramen with Tonkotsu broth that Hubby ordered. BEST Tonkotsu broth I had in Sydney!

I felt like in Japan again. That broth had the same deep flavor from the ones we had in Japan and missed so much since we were back.

Yep, ramen in Japan is a life-changing experience, you will never be happy after that, unless you go to Ramen Goku, of course. 🤣

Barcelona was a surprising gastronomic experience for me. I never imagined that there I could find so much variety and different cuisines, especially restaurants with a health food vibe, like Woki Organic Market.

The house offers a vast menu, from appetizers to dessert. What I liked most was the salad bowls for lunch, and this is what we decided to have!

My order

The idea is pretty simple, you select a base, then a protein, any extras, and finally a dressing. Here is what we got:

  • To share: Assorted Croquetes – Ham, Mushrooms, Cheese, Tofu & Leeks.
  • Hubby: Egg Noodles, egg, chicken, tofu, bamboo, china dressing.
  • Mine: Mixed veggies, chicken, spinach, broccoli, mushrooms, thai dressing.

Everything was super fresh and delicious. I really like the number of items you can pick to create your dish. Combinations are limitless!

The verdict

I can totally say this is the perfect spot to have a healthy meal and a break from any food madness you have been through while on holidays. 😛

Zeus Street Greek • Cronulla, Sydney

Posted on

Zeus Street Greek is a recurrent choice for me. Meals are super yum, quick to get, with affordable prices and very well sized portions!

I often get a pita for take away, or my favourite: Spartan Box (what a meal!!!). But they are also a gorgeous place to have your meal in, service is always amazing and I simply love the young-ish and modern atmosphere.

Another thing I love about this place is that you can easily find them in different cities around Australia! Can’t count how many times I was saved by them while traveling. 😀

My order

As I said, I often go there but for this blog purpose I decided to register only one of our meals. This is usually what we have:

  • To share: Dips – Tzatziki, Beetroot Hummus, and Smoky Eggplant with pita bread.
  • Mine: Spartan box with chicken, seasonal salad, smoky eggplant, and pilaf rice.
  • Hubby: Stavros Stavrou pita – Grilled Haloumi, Aegean slaw, olive tapenade, caramelised onions, tzatziki, tomato & parsley.

There is a huge variety of pitas, dips, and sides. But for me, the best meal is always the Spartan Box. You can create your own and I love this kind of stuff. Pick a type of meat, 2 different sides, and a dressing. Simply perfect.

El Dorado Chicken – Peruvian Cuisine • Barcelona

Posted on

While strolling around Barcelona streets and looking for a place to have lunch, El Dorado Chicken – Peruvian Cuisine seemed promising. I’ve never tried Peruvian food before, but why not?

However, checking their website though, they say their food is a mix of Peruvian and Asian cuisine. Found it intriguing. 🤔

My order

Looking through their menu I might say everything seemed pretty Chinese to me, but I thought. Let see what happens, and here we go:

  • To share: Simple salad – lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, and carrots.
  • Hubby: Lomo Salteado – Sautéed beef with vegetables, served with fries and rice.
  • Mine: Arroz Chaufa – Rice mixed with chicken, eggs, and peruvian-chinese spices.

And I was right, simply done Chinese food! 🤣

As I said, I’ve never been to Peru before, so maybe I’m getting the wrong idea here, but the food I had was 100% Chinese. Very good by the way, so no complaints about that.

The verdict

Very well serves with good price, but be aware this is Chinese Food and not Peruvian as they advertise.
