One of the best Italian restaurants in Zurich: Restaurant Da Angela (15. March 2018)

It doesn’t really matter what day of the week it is, the Da Angela is always packed. And I understand why, as the place is lovely in terms of interior design and they have a great setting as the single tables are sufficiently apart so you would have the necessary privacy. Once seated, you are […]

Great sushi lunch bargain in Zurich: Restaurant Samurai II (15. March 2018)

Since I have spent a couple of months in the middle east, I grew even more fond of edamame. So I decided to go for the “Spicy Edamame” (CHF 10.00) and while they were good in terms of the quality of the beans and I liked the ‘spices’ a lot. However, the spices were applied […]

An incredible lunch bargain: Restaurant Farnsburg (14. March 2018)

It’s more than 6 months ago since I’ve been to the Farnsburg – and the offer is still the same. When we look at what you get for your money, the price performance ratio is outstanding. Part of the lunch menu is a complimentary salad which is rather simple yet good. As a main, I […]

Traditional, comfortable, appealing: Restaurant Bernerhof (13. March 2018)

The Bernerhof is one of the authentic restaurants in Zurich. Most of the restaurants are about ‘new’, about ‘fancy’ and about ‘posh’. The place is simple, authentic, set up with care and you immediately feel comfortable once you’ve taken your seat. I went for the “heart of salad with home-made dressing” (CHF 13.00). While the […]

Solid and swift Italian lunch: Restaurant Amalfi (12. March 2018)

Solid and swift Italian lunch: Restaurant Amalfi (12. March 2018)

The “mozzarella di bufala campana e pomodorini datteri con basilico a foglie” (CHF 18.00) is lovely but the tomatoes were not sufficiently ripe yet, respectively were lacking in terms of aroma and flavour. The “gnocchi di patate al ragù di manzo, pomodorini datteri e pecorino” (CHF 30.00) had a bit of a funny consistency. The […]

Surprisingly good tapas in the UAE: Restaurant Taperia @ The St. Regis Dubai, Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club (10. March 2018)

I was a bit skeptical to try the last restaurant in The St. Regis. The Taperia. I mean, why would you try Spanish tapas in an Arabian country? Well, it turns out that this is actually not a bad idea. I went for the “Albondigas a la Catalana (Catalan meatballs)” (32 AED) which were good […]

The one place which doesn’t fit the property: Restaurant Oasis @ The St. Regis Dubai, Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club (10. March 2018)

The one place which doesn’t fit the property: Restaurant Oasis @ The St. Regis Dubai, Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club (10. March 2018)

While my overall experience at all the restaurants in The St. Regis was a positive one, the Oasis is not really on a comparable level. The Oasis is the pool restaurant and frankly not really appealing in terms of layout and setup. However, they have a small little spot a bit on the side looking […]

Great grill skills: The Grill Pit @ The St. Regis Dubai, Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club (9. March 2018)

Great grill skills: The Grill Pit @ The St. Regis Dubai, Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club (9. March 2018)

The Grill Pit is an intense place – noisy, loud but full of life. I started with a non-meaty starter. The “avocado salad (avocado, asparagus, sun dried tomato pesto, green peppers, preserved lemon dressing)” (85 AED) didn’t look too appealing at first as the salad leaves were way too big to be palatable. And the […]
