This Tiny Pub Was Just Named 'Best Restaurant in the World'

  This Tiny Pub Was Just Named 'Best Restaurant in the World' When you think of fine dining, restaurants in France and Italy are probably the first that come to mind. But believe it or not, an international poll of customer reviews says that a small English pub tops them all. The Black Swan in Oldstead, North Yorkshire, has been named “the best restaurant in the world,” according to a poll published by TripAdvisor. Rather than using a small panel of judges, TripAdvisor’s ranking considered feedback from restaurant customers, instead. Data crunchers collected millions of reviews and opinions from around the world, which were posted on the TripAdvisor site over a 12-month period.

Jeffrey Oberman insists his Mandzy, 13, is not a troublemaker.

She's quiet, loves biscuits and neck rubs and provides him with a sense of peace he can't find anywhere else.

But because Mandzy is a chinchilla, she won't be allowed to fly with Oberman in the cabin of an Air Canada plane from Vancouver to Montreal this spring.

"I can't figure out the logic behind this. I'm totally shocked," he said. "If the chinchilla could hear this, she'd be upset.

"When you fly in a flight for five hours and you have a baby screaming behind you, I personally think that's worse than having a chinchilla."

Oberman, 53, is adamant Mandzy must ride in the cabin with him and his girlfriend because he believes the stress of flying as cargo could kill her.

Oberman claims an Air Canada representative told him over the phone Tuesday that having Mandzy in the cabin was against the law.

But Transport Canada says there are no regulations about animals being in cabins or cargo holds of planes.

Air Canada declined an interview request.

"To ensure the comfort and safety of all customers onboard, Air Canada accepts only cats and dogs as pets in the cabin, and accepts only dogs as support animals," a spokesperson wrote in an email.

If those animals are allowed in cabins, Oberman wonders why Mandzy isn't, especially because he says she's more than a pet.

  This Is Why Tomato Juice Tastes Better on Planes What’s the deal with airline food, amiright? Do they give out those tiny bags of nasty peanuts just to make us feel like giants?Don’t worry, this won’t turn into a poor attempt at a Seinfeld parody, but the airplane food joke that so many comedians turn to in moments of desperation does have some truth to it. We all know that the food served on planes is far from—and probably the exact opposite of—culinary excellence, and that there’s also a less-known reason to never eat food on planes.

He suffers from insomnia and merely stroking Mandzy at night helps him sleep better than any medicine, he says, and without any side effects.

"She's the cure. And if I can't get her on the flight I don't know what I'm going to do."

Veterinarian Rob Ashburner says generally, passengers can feel confident leaving their pets in cargo holds on long flights.

He says cargo holds are heated and airlines are "really good" at making sure animals are positioned comfortably.

"In certain individuals it causes anxiety," he said. "It's a new experience, it's noisy [but] it's probably just as stressful riding in the car to the airport as it is riding in the plane."

He says for particularly anxiety-prone animals, it might be worth medicating them before a flight to sedate them.

This is the No. 1 food to avoid at buffets at all costs, according to a restaurant owner .
In a recent "Ask Me Anything" session on Reddit, an owner of an all-you-can-eat buffet answered the questions about the buffet industry that people on the internet have been dying to know. We've all been at a buffet at some point in our lives. With stations filled with endless amounts of food from any cuisine you can imagine, tiny desserts and a ridiculously wide assortment of seafood, there's probably a good chance a couple of questions have come across your mind as you've sat and gorged on a plate piled high with food.
