COPENHAGEN RESTAURANT NOMA has once again been named the “world’s best restaurant” by Restaurant magazine.
The kitchen, run by executive chef René Redzepi, serves a reinvented version of Nordic cuisine with a focus on ingredients foraged from the nearby forests and shores.
The two-Michelin-starred restaurant regained the title after coming in second in last year’s restaurant ranking.
Before that, it had held the crown for four years running.
One thing is for sure: a meal at Noma is completely out of the ordinary. Guests are treated to a parade of around 20 small plates, most of which bear little resemblance to recognizable food. The tasting menu costs $296 a head, and the wine pairing is an additional $185.
Jose Moran Moya, a foodie who takes gorgeous photos of his meals for his blog Spanish Hipster, was lucky enough to eat at Noma in 2012. He shared pictures of his Noma feast with us.
