~ WHO’S BEHIND FINEST FOOD STORIES? ~
Founder: Per Meurling. Back in 2012, Per started what has since become Germany’s biggest food blog, Berlin Food Stories. Through his extensive travels-in-food, Per noticed a lack of trustworthy platforms dedicated to exceptional dining experiences and the idea of Finest Food Stories was conceived to fill in the blank. The platform has since become THE place for Per’s friends-in-food to share stories about the world’s most interesting dining stories.
Editor: Kate Lewin. Having worked in London’s restaurant industry for many years, Kate made the move to Berlin where she now works as a journalist, editor and writer.
~ IS IT AVAILABLE IN PRINT AS WELL? ~
No. Finest Food Stories is a purely online magazine with long-form articles about specific one-off experiences as well as international To-Eat Lists which showcase the 15 must-visit places in a specific destination, spread across 10 different categories.
~ WHAT SORT OF RESTAURANTS DO YOU WRITE ABOUT? ~
Here, you’ll find hole-in-the-wall joints, beach shacks and street vendors alongside Michelin-adorned doorways, hidden counter tops and the world’s most exclusive chef’s tables. As long as the experience is something our writers would want every one of their friends to encounter then you’ll find it here on FFS.

~ HOW DO THE TO-EAT LISTS WORK? ~
Simple! Our To-Eat List authors are all experts on their specific city’s food scene and they’ve chosen the 15 must-visit places for visitors planning a long weekend, purely around food. The selections have been spread across ten categories meaning sometimes there’ll be more than one place in each category. The categories are:
THE must-visit place for the superfoodie
Where to try the city’s most iconic (but often poorly executed) local dish
Worth The Hype
Probably a tough reservation to get, but totally worth the effort
The must-go bakery or patisserie
Somewhere switching up the local food scene and taking it in a new direction
THE market with dishes and vendors of note
The most worthwhile breakfast or brunches, hopefully with great coffee
After-service or chef’s night off kinda vibes
The place that will forever hang high in a destination’s food hall of fame
Those spots that dedicate themselves to art of fermented grape juice. With snacks or dishes to match
