I simply couldn’t decide on ten, so I have bumped it up to now be my top twelve favourite dishes of 2022 instead. In no particular ranking, as I loved them all.

Clearly, I really favoured langoustine a fair amount this year… and two pigeon dishes made it too, Hide of course made it again for a second year running with the same amazing lamb dish, and Claude but with a dessert this time, and what an epic dessert it is.

Just so many incredible dishes, so much flavour, so much skill and technique. So many brilliant and talented chefs. Here is my list below.

Have plans for plenty more amazing mymuybueno Visits in the year ahead, and as always flying the flag for not just good food, but all the good chefs too. Here’s to a brilliant 2023 of eating and experiences ahead.
