In no particular order, because how do you compare perfection?
Location: Brisbane, Australia
My favourite restaurant in Brisbane: a Brazilian steak house with all you can eat food. The meat is cooked BBQ style for 24 hours and smothered in seasonings – it’s a mouth watering experience. A number of staff employed are from South America, which adds to the vibe of the venue and if you’re lucky you might meet the lovely owner, Shirley who introduces herself to all restaurant guests.
Mundo is where I took my husband on our very first date. Because Josh is introverted I was a little bit worried about conversation starters during our meal but because the food is so delicious we couldn’t stop talking about how great all the food was!
Try not to drool as you look through the photos below…
Flinders St Project
Location: Adelaide, Australia
The best breakfast spot in all of Australia. My pictures don’t do this places justice! It has the BEST chefs in Australia. Do yourself a favour and eat their food. The menu changes regularly so you can always go to try something new.
Location: Barcelona, Spain
A Portuguese restaurant located near the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona. The dessert made me so happy I forgot every bad thing that’s ever happened in the world. But it wasn’t just the dessert that was good, even their odd looking sandwiches are made for perfection.
Location: Golden, Canada
Golden is a sleepy town, not too far from Lake Louise. As a town, Golden doesn’t have too much to offer other than the fact that it’s located so close to the Rocky Mountain park region but it is 100% worth the trip just to go this restaurant. We ate their two nights in a row and were so sad to leave. I’m so sad that I will never get to return to eat the giant meal called ‘The Mountain’.
Location: Quebec City, Canada
Old Quebec has plenty of delicious French cuisine, and the poached egg with duck at this restaurant is one of the rare occasions non-duck eaters will love duck.
Anything from a deli in New York
Location: New York, New York
Wow, New York deli’s are so amazing! Cheap, delicious and 100s of sandwiches to choose from.

Location: Hanoi, Vietnam

Location: Suva, Fiji
Nowhere has a better berry smoothie than Governor’s Restaurant.
Mushroom pot. Caper berries. Meat cooked overnight. Homemade pasta. Epic fudge brownie. You can thank me later.
Ben and Jerry’s
Ice-cream sundaes. What more can I say?
Gelato in Venice
Location: Venice, Italy
Location: Cape Town, South Africa.
Delicious food for cheap prices with the friendliest service in the world – in every restaurant you walk into.
Unknown Restaurant Name
Location: Ebenalp, Switzerland
This restaurant is located directly across from the cable car that takes you up to the amazing views of the Aescher Hotel. Gravy food with cream and a cherry on top. Oddly awesome.
Location: Melbourne, Australia
They have sushi tacos and I wish I took more photos.
The M&Ms Shop
Location: Times Square, New York
“Oh, that’s not a restaurant”, you say? ARE YOU SURE??
Closed restaurants that still deserve a mention
Previous location: Ashgrove, Brisbane
Why: With their homemade baked beans for breakfast and chicken club sandwich with sweet potato fries for lunch.
Previous location: Bulimba, Brisbane
Why: The tapas bar that had tapas varaitions for breakfast, lunch dinner and dessert.
Previous location: Fortitude Valley, Brisbane
Why: Pumpkin and feta pizza followed by a giant dessert.
I miss you closed restaurants.
Honourable mention: Worst food I’ve ever eaten.
This terrible cardboard and spinach pizza from Venice Beach. And they even advertised themselves as the “best pizza in Venice Beach”. Liars. Exact opposite.
My advice for finding great food around the world
Trip Advisor is grand. We always find the best food using it, and it can help with budgeting because the top 10 restaurants usually always have at least one with only a $ symbol.
