Kadeau – Upscale, Refined New Nordic in Copenhagen

By the time we were sitting down for dinner at Kadeau, I was starting to get tasting menu fatigue. The prior two nights were tasting menu dinners that lasted more than 3 hours, and I didn’t know if I had it in me for another one. But I’m glad that I made the time for Kadeau, a two Michelin Star fine dining restaurant in Copenhagen. I felt like I had seen a lot of new things over the past two days. I had eaten some leathery beets, chocolate chip cookies that were completely vegan and a pigeon covered in a pastry shell. And yet Kadeau still held my interest and introduced me to new things, which really speaks to the skill level at this amazing restaurant.

Mingles in Seoul, Korea

If you find yourself looking for that one splurge meal in Seoul, Korea, make it a meal at Mingles. On paper, it checks all the boxes on the status meal – it’s currently ranked the best restaurant in Korea for 2021, it’s ranked 10th on Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants, and it was awarded 2 Michelin Stars. It deserves all those accolades, and I would wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone who is passing through the city. Korea has a lot of fine dining restaurants that do a fantastic job, but Mingles just does it with more finesse and creativity. Lunch is a great time to do it, since they offer a shorter and less expensive tasting option at 125,00 won–the current exchange rate is really in the US dollar’s favor, so this translates to $105, which is on a relative scale a pretty good deal for fine dining. Mingles is the best restaurant in Korea in 2021 so it makes so much sense to plan your meals in Seoul around it.
