Every chef probably dreams of earning “Michelin” stars. Though the criteria for this award is a trade secret, it is obvious that the main thing in a restaurant, that claims to be popular, is the excellent cuisine. In addition, the chefs try to surprise visitors not only with the exquisite taste of the dishes, but also with their unique presentation.

We at Enlighten decided to take a look at what their masterpieces look like.

3. “A very impressive dish. There are a total of 15 ingredients that go into it. Looks very unassuming, yet brings out flavors that I didn’t think were possible with a ’salad’ plate.”
