Bibo Madrid

The moment we booked our latest holidays in Spain we made our reservation at Bibo Madrid, the new restaurant of Spanish Chef Dani García. We finally got a table at Bibo Madrid! It’s a long story: last Summer, when we heard this new concept, a mix of traditional classics and nomadic cuisine, was opening in Madrid we tried to book a table, but sadly we came back to Germany before it opened. Bad timing. Last Christmas we tried again, but couldn’t make it because it was fully booked for the whole holidays. So this time we were determined: we were going to make it! And we did! After all the waiting and failed attempts, Bibo Madrid did not disappoint. Quite the opposite, we were mesmerised by the incredible food, the attentive service, the fun atmosphere… and the bathrooms, graced by the sound of birds! They’ve thought about every detail to make a dinner at Bibo Madrid a delightful experience. Everything was perfect. We started with a cocktail, of course. The innovative menu in the form …

Mercado Lonja del Barranco, Seville

Seville has joined the trend and can finally brag about its own gourmet market. Mercado Lonja del Barranco opened its doors last year to offer a modern take on traditional tapas and other typical specialties, becoming a highlight in Sevillle’s gastronomic scene. Located inside a World Heritage Historical Site and next to the famous Puente de Triana, this gleaming new space has conquered all kinds of public: those locals who look for a cool casual dinner with friends and those tourists who look for the best jamón in town.

Atrium, Bremen

This weekend we payed a visit to a restaurant we’ve wanted to try for a few weeks. I had the opportunity to interview the owner for my last article in El Viajero and since then I was super curious. This restaurant has a little gourmet shop in the front where you can buy thousands of delicatessen from the Mediterranean area. Back in the dining room, you can enjoy delicious dishes in a truly charming atmosphere.

Saint Nicholas is coming!

This Thursday Saint Nicholas is coming! He will bring sweets and small treats and gifts. Great German tradition, if you ask me. Wake up to a nice pair of shoes full of chocolates is a wonderful idea, don’t you think? For those who want to adopt this adorable tradition, here you have our sweetest suggestion: Summerbird and Galler chocolates. We discovered both brands the first time we visited Hamburg. Since then, every time we visit this lovely city we come back home with a bag full of deliciousness, as you can see in the picture :-). I totally recommend the Summerbird nougat covered almonds and Galler mini bars, specially the white chocolate with walnut praline filling. Not only have both brands excelent quality products, but also gorgeous packaging. You will make Saint Nicholas really proud! We usually buy these chocolates at Oschätzen Hamburg, but maybe you could find them in your favourite gourmet shop. Ask for them! You won’t regret it!
