BEST Choices by Nick

San Francisco

"When jet lagged on arrival I love to hit Bob's Donuts, a 24hr joint on Polk St. Luch at Tartine is similarly hard to beat, followed by shopping the independent stores on Guerrero. Finish the day chilling in Dolores Park taking in one of the finest views of the city"

Los Ángeles

"Lining up for breakfast at Sqirl near Silverlake is a must when visiting Los Angeles, as is a taco pit-stop at a branch of Guisados. For a classic California style burger head to Apple Pan where you can chase it down with exemplary apple pie and enjoy the old-time bustle of one of the LA's oldest burguer joints"

San Diego

"Stick to Mexican food in this town and you won’t go wrong. A trip out to Tacos El Gordo will see you chowing down on some of the finest pastor tacos outside of Mexico, while Chula Vista’s Fernandez specialises in a rich and vibrant birria. San Diego is also home to some excellent craft beer with AleSmith and Ballast Point being more than worthy of your beer dollar"

New York

"Be fast with your order at Ess-a-bagel. For me it’s lox and cream cheese on a toasted poppy. Katz’ deli is every bit as good as the surrounding hype, but venture north on 1st Avenue for the pork buns and ramen at Momofuku. If it’s a big NYC blowout you’re after, then it’s Le Bernardin all the way"


"Famous for its deep dish pizza, there are definitive favourites in the city, but my money is on Lou Malnatti’s. Logan Square Park is home to Bang Bang Pie, an absolute must when visiting Chicago. Get your caffeine kick at branches of Intelligentsia, and your customary Italian beef sandwiches at Al’s #1"


"It’s tough to eat badly in Austin. Easy Tiger is an epic bakery-come-bar downtown and offers excellent live music in the evenings. For iconic Texas style BBQ, leave the long lines at Franklin and head to Taylor for the smoked meats at Louie Mueller, or spend the day in Lockhart working your way round Black’s, Smitty’s and Kreuz Market"

New Orleans

"The fried chicken at Willie Mae’s is the stuff of legend and an essential dining experience in NOLA. Head to Johnny’s Po’ Boys for the oyster po boy, and Mother’s for the debris. A sunny stroll round the Bywater is like a step into the Caribbean and will hopefully lead you to moody beers in Vaughan’s, one of the most beautiful dive bars in the US"

Honolulu, Hawaii

"Ono’s and Ahi Assassins are arguably the two finest places for the tender raw tuna and rice bowls known as poke. If heading to the North Shore, don’t miss acai bowls at Haleiwa Bowls, or Wailua Bakery’s magnificent sandwiches. Back in Honolulu, be sure to grab a plate lunch at the iconic Rainbow Drive-in too"

Tokyo, Japan

"Get to Tsukiji market at the crack of dawn to see a very different side of the city through it’s fish market. Enjoy the peaceful service at Tonki, a 73 year old tonkatsu restaurant, or wander the izakayas of Blade Runner-esqe ‘Memory Lane’ hidden towards the back of Shinjuku train station"

Hanoi, Vietnam

"At Around 11am you’ll begin to smell the street side barbecues grilling pork patties and bacon for the late morning staple of bun cha, a rice noodle dish native to the city. Hunker down at the low-level table for pho anywhere you see a crowd and expect to pay no more than 30c for beers at Bia Hoi Corner"


"For a memorable and classic cafe experience, head to the original Dampkring on Handboogstraat. The Vondelpark is a great place to while away the preceding afternoon, then toss a coin to choose between the nearby Van Gogh Museum, or a tour of the Heineken Factory"

Beijing, China

"You’ll find weird and obscure street food on Snack Street which runs off of Wangfujing, but my favourite meal in Beijing is the roast duck at Li Qun set in a little hutong to the south east of Tiananmen Square. Follow the pictures of cartoon ducks on the walls until you find the grey brick building"

London, England

"Kentish Town’s Southampton Arms is one of the best British pubs in the game. Settle in for a pint or three, soaking up the beer with fresh sausage rolls, scotch eggs and other meat based finger food. Farringdon’s St. John will provide you with a more formal dining experience, just be sure to order the bone marrow toast"

Nosara, Costa Rica

"Even if you’re not staying at Nosara’s Harmony Hotel, you should wander up for breakfast or dinner to enjoy the tranquil surroundings and flawless service. You’ll find Beach Dog Cafe perfectly located for post sunset drinks, while Olo Alaia surf shop is an ideal place to spend mornings nursing impeccably brewed coffee"

Barcelona, Spain

"La Boqueria is the city’s bustling food market located just off downtown’s main drag, La Rambla. Elsewhere in the Gothic Quarter, track down La Plata for an intimate little hole in the wall that knocks out a minimal, but ridiculously tasty menu of fried anchovies, red wine, and beer"


"For the best food experiences head to the city's hawker centres. People’s Park Complex is vast and home to some excellent chicken rice and char kway teow, though Maxwell Hawker Centre is home to the famous Tian Tian Hainanese chicken rice stall. Keep hydrated with the iconic, bizarrely vivid, lime juice, which does the trick in Singapore's humid heat"

Paris, France

"True de Mouffetard is a small winding street full to the brim with thriving cheese shops, bakeries, and veg sellers. Grab a bag of potatoes cooked in the dripping juices of rotisserie chicken, or dine in the street side bistros like Le Papillion that line this picturesque corner of Paris"
