Gymkhana @ London


Our first Indian fine dining experience and with 5 jet-lagged kids!  It turned out to be a great meal and kids were happy.  The restaurant does not welcome kids after 8.30pm so we started early.  They put us in a quiet corner so we don’t need to worry about disturbing others.

Adults had the set menu while kids had a la carte.

Restaurant Lasarte by Martín Berasategui, Barcelona


Our first fine dining in Barcelona … our reservation was 8.30pm, for us it is already quite late but apparently people still walked in passed 10pm!  We chose the tasting menu and it took approx 3 hours.IMG_6855 IMG_6856 IMG_6864Butter in various flavours

All dishes were perfectly cooked and beautifully presented.  Overall the tasting menu portion was a bit too much for me but I managed to try everything.  Flavours are strong but mostly in the garnish so the freshness of the meat or seafood was not compromised.  Service was good too, very attentive yet not overdoing it.
