When the service is not up to the task: Restaurant Heimat Küche + Bar (5. November 2016)

As there was so much going on that weekend in Hamburg, it was almost impossible to score a table at any of the top restaurants in the city. After calling approximately 15 restaurants, I finally gave up and started wandering around HafenCity. And we ended up at the Heimat Küche + Bar in the 25hours […]

The new Westin Club – lacking atmosphere: Westin Club @ The Westin Hamburg (5. November 2016)

I am a huge fan of Starwood and its properties and you can imagine my excitement to actually experience a hotel opening (my first so far) and I was really positively surprised about the lovely welcoming, check-in, and the amazing Panorama Suite (#1116). However, I had my issues with the Westin Club. Once I finally […]

Nice breakfast selection: Restaurant The Saffron @ The Westin Hamburg (5. November 2016)

The Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg has become a sign for bad architectural planning and budgeting. But finally, after I don’t know how many years, the Elbphilarmonie opened. And with it, The Westin Hamburg opened too. I had the pleasure to spend the opening nights there and definitely loved the hotel. On Saturday, it was time to […]

First cheese fondue of the year: Restaurant Fribourger Fonduestübli (2. November 2016)

First cheese fondue of the year: Restaurant Fribourger Fonduestübli (2. November 2016)

The first cheese fondue of the year always tastes outstanding and the “La Fondue Fribourgeoise (moitié-moitié)” (CHF 28.50 per person) definitely qualifies as tasting great. The fondue is creamy and has an intense but yet lovely cheese taste. It is a couple of years ago since I first had cheese fondue with not only bread […]

Outstanding bar to chill out: Breeze by lebua (29. October 2016)

Outstanding bar to chill out: Breeze by lebua (29. October 2016)

Despite having been a couple of times in Frankfurt, I actually have never heard of the “Breeze by lebua” but it is definitely a bar worth visiting. The place is modern, nihilistic, and quite private. When you walk down the stairs you are welcomed by a lovely atmosphere and fresh flowers … … and the […]

Decent smoker’s bar with interesting drinks: Sullivan Bar (29. October 2016)

It is years ago since I have paid the Sullivan bar a visit and while I remember why I liked it, I also immediately remembered why I don’t like it. The “Moscow Mule” (EUR 10.50) is quite tasty but the drink which contains “wasabi” (EUR 11.50) is definitely something I would not try. It took […]

Lovely grandmotherly café: Café Maingold (29. October 2016)

The Café Maingold is probably not a place I would have entered myself as it looked really alternative from the outside and I even think it is a bit. However, given my friend decided to pay this place a visit I wasn’t opposing much and I must admit I was positively surprised as the place […]

Perverted food abundance – Bubbalicious Brunch: The Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina (28. October 2016)

SERIOUSLY PERVERTED! And also quite fun at the same time! But even after two weeks I can’t wrap my head around the sheer amount of food which is displayed and served at the “Bubbalicious Brunch” at the Westin Dubai. For 680 AED a person you get all the food you can possibly (!!!) imagine! Including […]
