Perfect place for a quick pitstop on a hike to Forstseeli: Restaurant Eggli (10. November 2018)

This November weekend was so perfectly warm it would kind of invite you to go hiking and the Forstseeli in Appenzell is a lovely place to go. The description of the trail kind of said that there were four restaurants along the way. Frankly speaking though, there was just one, the Eggli – and it […]

Good but nothing outstanding really: Restaurant 50 zu 5 (8. November 2018)

The “50 zu 5” is a pop-up which is up until the end of the year – so two more months to go and a solid three months in total. You get to pick from a rather small card between five dishes and two desserts. Alternatively, you take “tasting menu” (CHF 85.00) which includes all […]

Swift lunch offering with decent food: Restaurant *hirschchen (8. November 2018)

The *hirschchen is a safe bet for a swift and simple lunch. And it is worth visiting on a Thursday as Thursday is schnitzel day! What usually costs around EUR 13.00 – EUR 14.00 is available for only EUR 8.90 on Thursdays – “breaded pork schnitzel with pepper sauce and French fries” (EUR 8.90). At […]

Weak starter, lovely main dish: Restaurant DOX @ Hyatt Regency Düsseldorf (7. November 2018)

Once more I ended up in the DOX trying to get something off the menu I haven’t tried yet, so I went for the “caesar salad (parmesan, bacon, croûtons)” (EUR 12.00) which was mainly sauce. I mean, the ingredients were there as promised but if you look at it in a bit more detail, it […]

Good but on the pricier side: Restaurant DOX @ Hyatt Regency Düsseldorf (6. November 2018)

Somehow I end up quite frequently in the DOX these days – and that is besides the nice atmosphere and friendly service due to the quality of the dishes as well. The “sushi variation DOX (5 sashimi, 5 nigiri, 8 inside out)” (EUR 36.00) offers a nice selection of different little sushi type snacks. And […]

Swift lunch but limited food quality: Restaurant Da Nando (6. November 2018)

Swift lunch but limited food quality: Restaurant Da Nando (6. November 2018)

What I like about the Da Nando is the speed of the service – within a few minutes you’re served your “Insalata Caprese” (EUR 7.00) which was – despite the fact that it is not really the season for tomatoes – quite delicious. The “pizza salami with anchovies” (EUR 7.00) on the other hand wasn’t […]

Good steaks but overpriced side dishes: Restaurant Rocca im Gehry’s (5. November 2018)

The restaurant Rocca im Gehry’s has been recommended to me various times and finally it was time to give it a try. Once you are seated, you get not only bread and spread but also vegetables sticks which is quite a nice surprise. As a starter, I went for the “mozzarella di buffala with pealed […]

Lovely little hotel with decent breakfast: Restaurant Winery 29 @ The Alex Hotel (4. November 2018)

The breakfast buffet in the Winery 29 in The Alex hotel offers everything you need and want ranging from a selection of different teas … … to vegetables and yogurts … … jams and honey … … cold cuts and cheeses … … and last but not least eggs. What was missing in my opinion […]
