    The Härg - the Ox - is, as the name suggests, a meat restaurant. The food here isbountiful, a pastoral fantasy come true. Take for example the Härg’s selection of starters, consisting of five dishes meant tobe sampled by a small group. Or the Härg Fest - ten dishes served at once, no matter how many eaters. Sure, the Härg can provide for a light eater, too. Although maybe not the lightest of light eaters, since even a smoothie is fit for a light lunch. The vegetarian dish - Cabbage with Cabbage - satisfies a moderate hunger andis delicious to boot. The Savoy cabbage is grilled to rare. Eating it takes a steak knife and a good set of teeth, more than any meat might. The slightly tart ginger cabbage, onthe other hand, is soft-boiled, and the soft, silky cheese sauce brings the dish together in a perfect balance. But the main draw of a meat restaurant is supposed tobe meat, and the word on the street is that hitting the perfect doneness is a matter of honor here. We have always made a point of paying attention and are currently pleased to report a perfect score. Help yourself to the high-grade balsamico, and pair the high-grade steak with an even higher-grade wine that you'd be hard pressed to find offered by the glass elsewhere. Why not the Antinori Tignanello, or else the Rothschild Chateau d’Armailhac.

THE GLOBAL GASTRONOMY AWARDS 2018

With Enrique Olvera as its 2017 laureate, the Global Gastronomy Awards were presented at his Mexico City restaurant Pujol on September 23rd, 2018. For ten consecutive years the awards ceremony was hosted in Stockholm, last year, however, it became a movable feast and relay race, traveling to the home turf of the previous year’s winner. The first global stop was New York where 2016 awardee Dan Barber handed over the baton to Enrique Olvera. Chef Olvera in turn passed it on to David Thompson, making Bangkok the next destination.
