This year has finally come to an end. I say finally since this has been a tough year with a lot of ups and downs. I have been working to much and to unstructured. It’s been hard for me to find a balance in my life – both mentally and physically.
I do feel I am in a good place right now. Looking back at my restaurant visits I find a lot of memorable dishes.
Here are my top 20 in random order:
