3 days in Barcelona

I only have 3 days in Barcelona and am overwhelmed with all the great info on Chowhound. What are the best spots to hit in three days? I love high-end and expensive and low-end and authentic. Any hole in the wall places I should try? I also LOVE all things candy and chocolate and torrone! Any special places? Thanks so much.

SIngapore for one day - what are the best restaurants or food to try?

I will be in Singapore for exactly 24 hours this Sunday and want to maximize that time by trying the best restaurants, food stalls or type of food that Singapore has to offer. Please let me know if you have any recommendations. I love super high-end and also really cheap. I just like good food. Thank you!

Where are the best eats in Krakow, Vienna, Prague, Budapest and Istanbul?

Suzieq4 - thank you so much for your recommendations! We ate at Wesele in Krakow and LOVED it. The atmosphere is as good as the food. I wanted to go to Miod Malina but we didn't get around to it...we were too busy stuffing ourselves with sausage and other street food and pastries. We had fabulous food in Turkey. We read so much about Ciya Sofrasi so we ate there one night. Everyone should take the trip to the Asian side. Lots of good food and shopping over there. We really don't know what we were eating but we loved all of it. We just took the waiter with us to the hot food area and pointed at everything we wanted. What we also loved about Ciya was the desserts. They had a lot of candied things that were amazing. I did try one Turkish coffee which I could barely finish. My friend drank it without wincing. We bought some to bring home and now all of our luggage smells like coffee. One thing we ate that was fun was chicken breast pudding. We didn't realize that we were eating it at the time and we decided to look it up and we found out we were eating chicken breast pudding where they pulverize the chicken into a powder and then mix it with mile and sugar and cinnamon. Sounds gross but it's good. I want to go back to Turkey to travel to other parts of the country and taste more Turkish delights. I loved your post, thank you.

Kukubura - We just got back from our trip. We had about 4 nights in Krakow and Istanbul and 2 nights (not enough time) in the rest of the cities. I can't tell you how many times my friend and I said "TastyTrix" during our trip! We would come across a place we saw on your blog and we would say "if it's good enough for TastyTrix, it's good enough for us!" We brought some heavy duty cameras with us - I have a canon EOS T2i and my friend brought her Canon EOS 60d that weighs a TON. We had some of the best food of our lives during our trip and ate at a lot of places from your blog. Several places we wouldn't have known about if it weren't for your blog so thank you! We are major sausage lovers and I think we ate our weight in sausage during the trip. I wish I could have brought the blue van man from Krakow home with me.

Thank you so much! I did see your post and printed it out and checked out your blog. Your photos are AMAZING! Reading your blog made me so excited for my trip. I must ask - how do you take such amazing photographs, especially in low light? I've sent your blog to many of my friends so they can be jealous of my trip. :) Thank you.

I'm going to Krakow, Vienna, Prague, Budapest and Istanbul next week. I want to know where the best places to eat are. In particular, I would love to know where the best desserts are. I love all things pastry! Thank you.
