Where the locals go: Trattoria La Casalinga (23. April 2016)

The Casalinga was recommended to us by a local – and it was a good recommendation. Although it was already around 1:30pm when we finally arrived the place was still superbusy but we were lucky to almost immediately get a table. I went for the “fegato alla salvia” (EUR 10.00) and while I have had […]

Food market @ Florence: Mercato Centrale (23. April 2016)

While an Italian food market sounded absolutely interesting and promising, I must admit that I was not entirely satisfied with what I experienced. The place has two levels – on the entry level there are the actual booths where you can buy the dishes. On the second level, you can find some more tourist-like places […]

Great Italian breakfast: Bianco È (23. April 2016)

Great Italian breakfast: Bianco È (23. April 2016)

A simple but great Italian breakfast is what you get at the Bianco È – it is quite tasty in its simplicity with a “double espresso” (EUR 2.50), an orange juice (EUR 2.50) and a “Piadina” (EUR 4.00). However, the piadina is actually quite greasy and definitely not healthy but at least stuffing for the […]

Restaurant Brühl @ The Westin Leipzig (22. April 2016)

The breakfast selection at the Restaurant Brühl definitely goes way beyond my expectations. I mean, it is some time ago since I have had breakfast at a Westin to be honest, still, I was not expecting such a rich selection. Ranging from various breads – and all of them labelled which I consider especially lovely […]

Restaurant Gusto @ The Westin Leipzig (21. April 2016)

I was not aware that The Westin Leipzig actually hosts a Gault Millau restaurant on its top floor (the 27th floor) called Falco but when I tried to get a table that night, I was informed that there was an exclusive company event not open to the public. Given that, I decided to give the […]

Tasty Italian style breakfast: h club>diana @ Sheraton Diana Majestic (19. April 2016)

It is a couple of years ago since I last had breakfast at the Sheraton Diana Majestic and I remember the place to be a bit different. You get a small selection of everything you need for breakfast (with the exception of bacon, you don’t get bacon) ranging from mozzarella balls, tomatoes, various cheeses, cold […]

True Italian flavourful icecream: Helados (18. April 2016)

I randomly passed by “Helados” (Spanish for “icecreams”) and it just somehow looked like a place I was supposed to have icecream. So I went in and while the place itself is somewhat small and not that appealing look-wise, it still was like “yeah, I gotta have some icecream here”. And I went for “yogurt”, […]

A French Bistro experience in Milan: Giacomo Bistrot (18. April 2016)

The Giacomo Bistrot offers you a truly French bistro experience in Milan. When you enter you are not really being welcomed but it was more like “Hey, if you want a sandwich, there is a store across the street!”. I mean, okay, to be fair, it was 3pm, and maybe not exactly the time to […]
