Food Stories and Travel Guides online!
There's no secret we travel for food. We actually look and book places to visit with food in mind most of the time. To experience a new country through their food is probably the fastest and best-tasting way to get to know history, culture, and people.
We love to eat! Sometimes we forget to take notes, blown away by the moment. Maybe that's why we have tons of restaurant reviews to write. But we're working on becoming better restaurant reviewers and learn all the time. Hope you enjoy them!
If you have a restaurant and want an honest review, let us know! Check out WORK WITH US (open in a new window) for more information.
Our Restaurant Reviews from Food Travels
Raan Jay Fai Bangkok, Thailand
If you want to experience a Streetfood in Bangkok that is beyond just good - Jay Fai is the place to go! With the One Star Guide Michelin or not her fantastic Streetfood is magical!
Sticks and Spoons visited in April 2017 before she gets rewarded with the famous Michelin star and all we can say is that it was well earned! And we really want to revisit this iconic Queen of Streetfood!
Koizen Gothenburg, Sweden
For the true Sashimi and Sushi Enthusiast, this little Omakase Room on Aschbergsgatan in Gothenburg is a must-visit! Chef Arven Chau has worked under a Master and took a giant step opening his own place when returning to Sweden.
And for that, we are truly thankful because this place has all the things you want as a Foodie!
Sra Bua by Kiin-Kiin Bangkok, Thailand
Danish Chef Henrik Yde Andersen's worldwide known concept Kiin-Kiin moved abroad to Thailand and Bangkok landing in the Kempinski Hotel at Siam.
The tasting menu "The Journey" was a fantastic experience and we enjoyed every dish. This is our review from Sra Bua by Kiin-Kiin.
Colonel Bruxells, Belgium
The restaurant Colonel is truly a carnivoran paradise with high-quality cuts and premium meat from all over the world and regional charcuterie.
It could be one of our more expensive lunches up to date but a very special one thanks to the quality of the meat and the environment with the open kitchen and good service.
Restaurant Onyx in Budapest, Hungary was Sticks' first two-starred Michelin Restaurant - and they really surprised us with excellent service and great food!
Two Tasting Menus on Onyx; "Within Our Borders" and "Beyond Our Borders" became one and we could enjoy them with a special designed Beverage Package.
Gaggan Bangkok, Thailand
Gaggan Progressive Indian Cuisine was a Roller Coaster of tastes, textures, and aromas! The choose free but very professional service with a highly executed cuisine made this Dining Experience very special. Eating 25 dishes - all of them cooked with a certain story behind the dish and reason to serve it in a special way was a thrill!
Paste Bangkok, Thailand
The Traditional Cuisine of Thailand is brought to a modern and fresh experience by Chef Bee Satongun and her kitchen team. We wanted to eat everything on the menu - all sounded so delicious!
We ended up with some of the top dishes on the menu and had a great time even if the service were a little more "stiff" compared with other dining experiences in Bangkok.
80/20 Eighty Twenty Bangkok, Thailand
The devoted Team at 80/20 in Bangkok gave us a memorable evening with one of the most progressive takes on Modern and Innovative Thai Cuisines we have Experienced!
The 9-course Winter Menu delivered both daring and familiar tastes together with perfect service and this is our review from our visit! Enjoy!.
Ramen-Ya Gothenburg, Sweden
Ramen-Ya is a small and cosy restaurant near Linnéplatsen in Gothenburg that have great tasting Ramen - which they do in the restaurant of course.
We go there now and then when our craving for Ramen becomes to hard to handle...and it's quite often!
Shinsen Fish Market Bangkok, Thailand
One of our got-to-go places when planning our Thailand Trip was Shinsen Fishmarket in Bangkok. We had big expectations.
However, the Sushi Restaurant at Shinsen didn't deliver all through our visit. There were both highs and lows and here you can read our review.
Happolati Oslo, Norway
On a Solo-Travel to celebrate Norway's Constitution Day, Spoons "stumbled" upon Happolati. Happolati is an Asian - Nordic Fusion Love Story that delivered a fantastic Tasting Menu!
It was a perfect way to Celebrate and also, a perfect time to test to eat whale - but to be honest; it will be the one and only time as well. However, Happolati Restaurant Review is mouthwatering!
Sticks & Spoons Street Art Guides
Sticks & Spoons visited Budapest in Hungary back in 2018 and was mindblowned with all the amazing Art of the Street we found! In just three days we became obsessed with finding more - and found it! Who would have known that after Spoons' disappointing morning walk?
Spoons have visited a second time with even more Street Art found...and some Street Art lost as well.
Artscape Saga Street Art Blog Post
Artscape's Saga is one of the World's Largest Urban Art Projects. In May and June 2019, the excellence of 26 Street Art Artists created 32 amazing Street Art pieces during 3 weeks in 12 municipalities of the Gothenburg Region in Sweden.
This is the first blog post in a series about this fantastic Street Art Project.
If I had to pick... Guest Blog Post
"Where is a good spot in Melbourne to see good street art? 'What is your favorite mural?"
Our Guest Blogger Neda tries to answer those questions in this post but considering there are so many incredible artists and the fact that Melbourne is spoilt when it comes to the caliber of street art in Australia, there is no easy answer to either of these questions, but here are her favorite picks!
The Silo Art Trail Guest Blog Post
The inspirational story about the Silo Art Trail, without doubt, is one of Australia’s largest outdoor galleries from our Guest Blogger Neda aka virusfreak79 on Instagram.
Stretching 200 km, the trail links six of Victoria’s smallest towns - Sheep Hills, Brim, Patchewollock, Lascelles, Roseberry, and Rupanyup, situated in the Wimmera/Mallee region.
Hellström Street Art Blog Post
All of a sudden, they seemed to appear here and there and everywhere in Gothenburg; "Paste Up's" with a really cool style, created by (what we assumed) the same creative, artist's hands who borrowed thoughtful lyrics from the Swedish artist; and "Gothenburger", Håkan Hellström's songs.
And when an Hellström Street Art Exhibition turned up it was an easy decision to go!
North Victoria Street Art Hunt Guest Blog Post
Melbourne is internationally acclaimed as one of the world's great street art destinations but there is much amazing street art to be enjoyed outside the metropolitan area.
In this post, frequently Guest Blogger Neda aka virusfreak79 on Instagram will share with you a few of the regional street art treasures that the country Victoria has to offer.
Artscape Gothenburg 2016 Blog Post
With 18 small and huge art pieces completed in less than a month, the Street Art Project Gothenburg 2016 was nothing less than a great success!
Artscape also hosted artist talks and had workshops with locals getting involved in street art, making it quite a game-changer. Here are some of the beautiful Street Art found so far!
Skin and Bone Guest Blog Post
Australian contemporary street artist Sam Bates (aka Smug One) is known around the world for his incredible life-like, large-scale murals.
Smug's inspiration comes from the people he meets or comes in contact with, resulting in unique pieces created in his recognizable, photo-realistic style. This is the "Skin and Bone" Art Exhibition.
We found a few Street Art Loving friends in the Facebook Group Travel Collab Post Opportunities (great group, smooth collaboration so we can recommend this one) and it turned out great!
Read about Street Art in Washington DC, New York, Wynwood, Miami, Walnut Creek, Minneapolis, Phoenix, St Petersburg, and Philadelphia.
