My companions and I ate very, very well on our trips.
Italy was obviously fantastic; my friend took us to her favourite fancy restaurant, and I found a gourmet store in Siena where I bought a tiny jar of truffle sauce, which pleased me greatly.
I think Prague may have been my favourite, simply because everything (everything!) was affordable. We found an absolutely beautiful breakfast room called Cafe Louvre where I had a glass of champagne and smoked salmon on herb pancakes. We tried absinthe ice cream. We went to a hip restaurant under a design studio where we split caviar and steak with apples and cream.
Amsterdam was pricier, but we still found some great lunch spots (though, alas, were not really fans of herring), and treated ourselves to one fancy dinner, which was so unbelievably magical for so many reasons that it will require its own post…
Spain: tapas and sangria. Need I say more?
