THREE STARS Exceptional cuisine, worth a special journey

  • Les Amis (P)
  • Odette (P)

TWO STARS Excellent cooking, worth a detour

  • Saint Pierre (P)
  • Shisen Hanten
    • peking duck
    • with second course (wrapped in lettuce, sautéed with ginger and spring onion, sautéed in black pepper sauce)
    • some kind of tofu egg drop soup thing?
      • food: was okay; not quite two michelin stars; nothing to shout about here (although the meat/lettuce wrap was really good).
      • company: was also okay. not the easiest to get along with, though. no dessert, sad...
