Culinary Notes

As I'm nearing my last week in Paris, I thought it would be good to note down my culinary highlights so far. I've been eating a lot of food, and will, no doubt, pay the price for it when I return. There have been a few food highlights so far which include :

Hong Kong:
Michelin Starred dumplings at Tim Ho Wan. Reputedly the cheapest Michelin star restaurant in the world and the dumplings were fabulous. My 3-course lunch cost about A$7.

Venice :
Lunch at the Michelin-starred Ai Gondolieri who specialise in Venetian cuisine. I highly recommend trying the Veal cheek with Refosco wine sauce and polenta.

Paris:
I've made a little habit of visiting local french bistros where no one speaks any english and ordering something randomly off the menu. Two weeks ago, I asked the waitress to bring me their most traditional dish and she bought me Lapin avec pruneux tagiatelle. It was delicious! One of the most beautiful pasta dishes I've ever had. I only found out later that I had eaten rabbit and prune pasta!!! I'll make it up to the bunny, I promise. I stole this picture of the internet , but this is exactly what the dish looked like.

Off to Amsterdam this weekend, and I'm not really sure if there are any culinary must haves I need to try. If anyone has any ideas, let me know.
