These are some of the funny moments that don’t quite belong on serious food reviews, but that we thought were too funny not to share with our awesome viewers. This should give you a behind the scenes idea of what goes on both behind the camera, and in front of it.
In the middle of the island of Bonaire, a very unsuspecting restaurant lies. Besides the fact that it is slightly hidden, it has some of the greatest and only fresh organic food selections on the island. The owner of this restaurant, Tina, is one of the kindest and most giving people we have ever eaten with. Every day we ate with her, she had prepared a special meal for us, made with love and care. Her food was so delicious that didn’t have to eat for the rest of the day, and we came back for it nearly every single day. Thank you Tina for being so amazing, and if anyone is ever in Bonaire, Tina’s restaurant is a must.
In the Cayman Islands, we visited the lovely restaurant called Luca.
They were kind enough to show us around the ins and outs of the back kitchens where magic, in the form of food, is made. We learned about what the chef likes to cook, and why!
We loved the food and friendliness of the people who worked there. They seemed as though they were doing exactly what they loved, and that was reflected in their food as well for sure.
While staying at the lovely Ritz Carlton in the Cayman Islands, we had the ultimate pleasure of visiting and eating at the beautiful restaurant there called Blue.
Everything about our experience at Blue was totally wonderful. Our excellent wait staff made us feel comfortable and at home right away, describing everything we wondered about on the menu, and talking with us openly about his experience working there and what ultimately draws him back to work each day. To top that off, the food was totally impeccable. We took turns talking about the food and describing its deliciousness.
Overall, our experience was extravagant in the best way possible. Enjoy this review as much as we loved making it and be sure to visit Blue if the opportunity presents itself to you!
In Hong Kong at the Lung King Heen (translates to “View of the Dragon”) restaurant at the Four Seasons Hotel, we ate a traditional Chinese dim sum.
Chef Chan Yan Tak was the first Chinese chef to receive three Michelin stars! We experienced foods neither of us had tried before, but despite this, we thoroughly enjoyed nearly every new thing we ate. The General Manager even provided us with a Michelin Guide, signed by Chef Chan, and chef du cuisine, Fabrice Vulin of the two Michelin star restaurant, Caprice. So shout out to the kindness of the General Manager!
Due to proprietary reasons, we were unable to show the ambiance of the restaurant, but it was bright, happy, and overall a nice atmosphere to be a part of. Each dish was described to us in great detail by our waiter, and was eaten until there was not more left.
If you are up for an adventurous, interesting tea time while in Hong Kong, then the Mandarin Oriental is a great place for you. Even if you don’t enjoy tea, there is still a lot for you.
Besides tea, there was a abundance of things to snack on such as mini sandwiches and sweets, and Ram found out fois gras was not his thing.
We visited the restaurant called Sundara at the Four Seasons resort in Bali.
At Sundara, we enjoyed our fresh, delicious food outside in the warm open air. Everything we ordered on the menu tasted fresh and totally off the wall in a good way. This was such a fun review to do that we had to edit out an incredible amount of bloopers.
Enjoy what we have for you and make sure to visit Sundara, because it was the best restaurant at the Four Seasons in Bali.
At the restaurant we visited called La Lucciola in Bali, we decided to switch things up a little bit. Lily went behind the camera, while Ram spoke about the food.
The restaurant was relaxing and open to the warm air. La Lucciola is set on the beach, and you can smell the salty ocean air from anywhere in the open restaurant. The service was fast and our servers were kind. We both really enjoyed each of the courses that were offered to us and coupled with the openness and brightness of the restaurant, we had an enjoyable experience.
We recommend La Lucciola all the way.
At Dulang restaurant, the ambiance was pleasant. There was live, relaxing Balinese music being played throughout our whole meal. The waiters were kind and gave excellent explanations of each course, and were wonderful at recommending dishes for us.
The restaurant, however, was a little dark and so it was hard to see the menu and also the food itself for the review. The meals themselves were an amazing representation of traditional Balinese food. Each course was colorful, presented in an interesting way, and tasted delicious.
Overall the dishes were executed flawlessly and we both highly recommend this restaurant for everyone willing to try a delectable traditional Balinese meal.
