    For some its the ultimate dining experience in refined taste and flavors, for others its glorified nouvelle foraging/ cooking nordic weeds with french and modern spanish technique

    for $700 the meal better be damn good if the courses involve a fried egg

    If I'm going to go to a high end restaurant I don't want to fry my own fucking egg. Sorry. lol

    I'm sure it's great though.

    $700 for a small egg I have to cook myself, some crap scavenged from a field and a potato chip?


    I would very much like to punch each and every single person who eats that.

    I'm hoping to get in there on one of my next trips to Copenhagen but know it's unlikely. I'm fascinated by it.

    Whatevers.

    Just from the color of the egg yolk, it's obvious that the hen that laid them was well fed with plenty of dark grains and grubs and insects. That egg isn't great because of the presentation or preparation. That egg is going to taste great because it was just a good egg.

    Anthony Bourdain did an episode on this restaurant on this show (3rd ep) i think.

    After watching that episode, I can see how this restaurant was was voted as the best restaurant in the world 3 years running.

    It'd be a dream to eat at this restaurant. Reminds me of El Bulli (in spain) and Jiro's sushi place (in japan) for their creativity.

    Agreed. Absolutely great episode on Parts Unknown about this restaurant.


    Friends of mine went there, and said it was the best meal they've ever had. They had eaten at French Laundry, Per Se, and other very highly rated restaurants before too.

    It happens. What's really inexplicable is how Noma held that spot for three years without the inspectors at Michelin pulling their heads out of their asses. The Fat Duck held the #1 spot for six years.
