'Nobody goes to restaurants for nutritional reasons. They go for experience, and what price a really top experience?'What price indeed? Fearlessly, and with huge wit and knowledge and verve, award-winning food writer Jay Rayner has searched the world for the perfect meal. Sparing neither his wallet nor his digestive system, he has been to places, met people and eaten things the rest of us can only fantasize about. From Las Vegas and London to Moscow and Tokyo, the result is an enormously entertaining and informative romp through the world's best -- and worst -- restaurants.
'A witty world tour of gastronomic culture from Las Vegas to Tokyo and everywhere worth visiting in between' -- Scotland on Sunday 'Brilliant' -- Observer 'A genuine book... not a collection of recycled articles, but a piece of vivid food and travel writing based on research' -- Observer Review
