(Updated) Our 10 Favorite Restaurants In The World

Over the past few years, we’ve been fortunate enough to do some traveling. While we’ve mainly been relegated to North America, Asia and now Europe, we’ve found some pretty awesome dining spots along the way! These are our 10 favorite restaurants in the entire world. This list is subject to change as we continue our travels. (NEW) Cal Pep Barcelona, Spain Just a few blocks from the Barceloneta metro stop, Cal Pep is one of the most popular restaurants in the area. On any given day, you’ll want to arrive about 30 minutes before they open (to line up). If you show up right as doors open, be ready to wait up to an hour and a half (although, you can order a few limón cervezas to help pass the time). The restaurant is made up of a narrow bar area in front, and a quieter seating area in the back. Guess where we sat though? The bar is definitely where you want to be. The atmosphere at Cal Pep is lively to say the least. Perfect …

Empire State of Mind

The concrete jungle of New York City–where danger doesn’t include tigers or lions, but giant sidewalk holes (what are those things??) and poop on the subway wall (probably still includes giant bugs though). You can find anything & everything in NYC, you just have to know where to look! I’ve put together highlights from my trips to NYC of the things I love and hope you will too! FYI: Traveling in — coming in from the airport. There’s a multitude of options in trying to figure out how to get from the airport to the city. If you’re crunched for time, I recommend grabbing an uber or lyft straight to your destination. But if you’re trying to save some $$, find the nearest subway stop and take the metro to your destination. You’ll save yourself at least $25! Chinatown If you go to New York, you HAVE to go get some good dim sum. Chinatown is booming with awesome places to eat, we recommend Jing Fong or Grand Harmony (GH is a bit faster and cheaper :)), …

Back to Cali strictly for the weather

We traveled to the Bay (in Nov lol–we are slow on the posts…) to visit our friends who had recently moved out there! If you’re thinking about going to San Francisco we have a few places we highly recommend! Crissy Field: If it’s your first time in SF, you have to check out Crissy Field. There’s beautiful Mark di Suvero sculptures scattered through the field and you can see the Golden Gate Bridge from the park. It’s super tourtisty, but so much fun if you rent some bikes and bike up Battery East Trail up to the bridge. It is super windy though, and you might feel like you’re about to fall off your bike. BUT the trail has some great views of the bay! You’re also a hop & a skip away from Fisherman’s Wharf which you can also bike to from Crissy Field. Fisherman’s Wharf has all of the chain restaurants you can dream of, but most importantly it has IN-N-OUT–make sure you get those animal fries after biking. 😉   Golden Gate Park: SF …
