As part of a new series, I will be looking to profile some of the world’s best restaurants, Starting with the Worlds number one voted restaurant; Noma!
Noma, is a two star Michelin star rated restaurant which is, situated in Copenhagen, Denmark, with its specialty being modern Nordic cuisine. Using only locally sourced ingredients, it aims to combine them with a modern twist, to turn them into extraordinary dishes! Having opened in 2004, it quickly rose to the top and has been pushing the boundaries of gastronomic delight ever since.
Noma really can claim to be the worlds best as it has been voted so for 4 consecutive years, by Restaurant magazine with its head chef/owner Rene Redzepi, coming from top pedigree having previously worked at El Bulli, French laundry and the Fat duck, which are all well renowned and respected within the world cuisine.
The restaurant itself is open 5 days a week (Tuesday-Saturday, incase you decide to jump on a plane!) and operates a lunch/dinner service, with each sitting upto 20 people offering a set tasting menu that contains a whopping 28 courses! It starts with amuse bouches, moving onto appetisers, mains and then desserts, covering a whole spectrum of unheard of ingrediants which have been turned into something spectacular!Its Current menu is as follows; Apetisers Fresh milk curd and blueberry preserves Brown crab, Egg yolk and herbs Onion and fermented pears Beets and plums Potatoes and bleak fish roe Pike perch and cabbages Verbena and dill Beef rib and lingon berries Gammel Dansk Potato and plums Treats
As you can see the food looks really spectacular, and i feel it really does deserve its place as the worlds best restaurant, I hope you enjoyed reading this article, any feedback would be appreciated, and if anyone has any ideas on where to go next for my worlds best series then let me know!
