Tirana, Albania

Offering a joy-filled tour of Albania’s greatest culinary hits, Mullixhiu resides in a pine-clad mountain cabin of a restaurant in the buzzing capital of Tirana. Walls are constructed from dried sweetcorn husks encased between panes of glass. Pioneering chef Bledar Kola (who has spent time at four-time World’s Best Restaurant Noma), whose stated mission is “to challenge the global dictatorship of French cuisine”, sends out a stream of small, lovingly prepared sharing plates. The eight-course tasting menu – at a mind-blowing $15 – includes the likes of a curd and candied meat pie, and chewy-crisp sweetbreads.
