On a recent Scandinavian trip, ABC 7 food reporter Steve Dolinsky scored a coveted reservation at Noma, the world's No. 1 restaurant as named by the S. Pellegrino World's 50 Best Restaurants earlier this year.

The Copenhagen restaurant, owned by Rene Redzepi, served a 12-course tasting menu, preceded by eight "snacks," that included radish and carrot, "soil" and herbs; pickled and smoked quail eggs served in a giant egg; and sea urchin and dill. After dinner, Dolinsky chatted with pastry chef Rosio Sanchez, a native of Chicago's Pilsen neighborhood.

The images of the dishes show a clear sense of culinary artistry and, while he can't say whether it's the No. 1 restaurant in the world, Dolinsky says that if you're going to Copenhagen it's definitely worth shelling out the money. This video really says it all.
