Rapper and food TV show host Action Bronson just posted an Instagram reportage of a meal in the best restaurant in the world*—Noma, in Copenhagen, Denmark. 24 courses with ingredients that go from flowers and sea urchin to ants and grasshopper.
Noma has been named best restaurant in the world several times already. Its food is based on the search of the best local ingredients to cook them and present them with extreme care and respect. A full meal at Noma is around $280.
* Of course, “best restaurant in the world” is an arbitrary title by one publication—the British magazine Restaurant. But it’s definitely one of the very best in the planet.

You can either let your imagination run wild, or you can see pictures of every dish at the link. Maybe it’s just me, but some of the food looks like it’s been pre-processed by the human intestinal tract.
But I’m a heathen.
