Check out the list

It’s been a year since I started my blog.  I started with a list of the world’s 100 biggest countries by population.  I searched the internet, read magazine reviews and most importantly checked with my family and friends to find restaurant recommendations for as many countries cuisines as possible.  I’m going to update my list now with countries I’ve tried and ones I haven’t.  And will rank restaurants from the same country if I’ve eaten at several places.

  1. p.s. for “Canadiana” fare, just came across a review for Keriwa (in Roncey). Here’s a snippet from their site… Keriwa Cafe is committed to sourcing out the best quality ingredients, both locally and regionally, chosen at the peak of their seasonality and honouring their nature with an understated, rustic cooking approach. The seasonal menu reflects an approach to cookery that is in tune with the Canadian landscape. Likewise, the drink menu as well reflects the overall Keriwa Cafe vision of sourcing out the best of local and regional purveyors of fine wine and spirits in Canada and abroad.
