Berlin & Copenhagen

I am skipping town again, this time to Berlin & Copenhagen, I am really excited. I will be meeting three of my friends who are flying from different parts of the world. I look forward to absorbing the city vibe in Berlin, and trying out amazing food in Copenhagen. I've been doing a lot of reading on food in both cities, and I have to say I haven't read anything remotely compelling about food/restaurants in Berlin. On the contracy, Copenhagen seems to be the Scandanavian gastronomy city with various amazing restaurants & avant-garde chefs that are experimental and inventive. I am particularly excited about Noma, which I scored a lunch reservation at. It was voted #3 on The World's 50 Best Restaurant, just behind El Bulli in Spain & The Fat Duck in the U.K. Will definitely report back!
