I see what you did there.

I think I agree with Max. The platings are rather odd (but definitely very "Noma"). Thanks again, Matt, that you recommended Bras instead of Noma. smile.gif

Jesus that Noma meal looks intense. How much did that set you back?

Gotta +1 mgm. Really appreciate seeing those photos from Noma, but most of those plates do not look appetizing to me.

+ 1, or + 2 or whatever. I can appreciate the innovation, etc, but I have reached a point where I just don't have much interest in eating like that anymore.

“Remember that a very good [sea buckthorn] is always preferable to a not that good lobster.”

Do you guys think that Noma will remain on top for a number of years? I feel like that once the novelty of what they have created wears off it will drop down a bit.
How much was the McDonalds?smile.gif

@mgm9128, I do agree to an extent, the food did have an "earthly" look to it all, almost too earthy for my liking. I guess this is where I felt The Fat Duck wins hands down.

@b1os, I think my first couple of sentences probably came across contradictory. I've discussed this briefly with another foodie friend and we both agreed that the San Pellegrino's list is heavily biased to "fresh and new" dishes, which Noma excels at. The Fat Duck in comparison doesn't change much and as mentioned before some of their dishes doesn't only transcend seasons, but years too, only being slightly tweaked as it goes along. Bras does look and sound interesting, I'll have to add that to the list. I really wanted to try out Relæ and Geranium so I could kill three birds with one stone, but alas I didn't time our schedule too well because nearly every place is closed Sunday and Monday... oops. Having said that I think I'm done with fancy food for quite a while and want to get back to some down and dirty street food, alas my trip to Taipei in February couldn't come any sooner.

@Rambo, 1500dkk for the set taster menu + 550dkk for juice pairing (in hindsight I wish I hadn't bothered with the juice pairing, and I wouldn't recommend this to anyone who intends to go, the Noma IPA on the other hand, is a definite must)

@BrianVarick, 75dkk for their regular extra value meal, so about $13, double what we pay here in the UK including London. Been told it costs even more in Norway.

I think that Noma meal looks fantastic. I get why people are commenting on it not looking "appetizing," because it looks so strange, but I still think it's beautiful and it's not really supposed to be comfort food. I'd love to have a meal like that.

+1. I would like to try it once for the experience.
