A good lunch option for a quick business lunch: Restaurant Baselbieter Stübli @ Hotel Engel (1. October 2018)

I had booked a couple of times at the Hotel Engel before but somehow it never worked out. Finally, I managed to actually pay a visit. And I was quite positively surprised – the place is overall quite lovely and offers a decent lunch offering. I went for “lamb’s lettuce with egg, bacon and croûtons” […]

Lovely area and view but average food experience: Schloss & Gut Liebenberg (27. September 2018)

Lovely area and view but average food experience: Schloss & Gut Liebenberg (27. September 2018)

The buffet selection at the Schloss & Gut Liebenberg is quite lovely – you get a bit of everything and all of it in good quality. There is a decent salad buffet … … some sweets … … as well as a couple of different mains. I was there in the context of a seminar […]

Decent drinks but lack of atmosphere and service: Bonbon Bar (26. September 2018)

Decent drinks but lack of atmosphere and service: Bonbon Bar (26. September 2018)

Approximately 3 years ago, I paid the Bonbon Bar a visit and I liked it quite a lot – so it was time to go again. The “Bonbon Mule (fresh passion fruit meets apple, vodka and ginger beer)” (EUR 12.00) which is one of their signature drinks is a fine drink which is definitely worth […]

Great experience but an overly chatty waiter: Restaurant Slate (26. September 2018)

Great experience but an overly chatty waiter: Restaurant Slate (26. September 2018)

I had been told about the Restaurant Slate before and only heard good things, so it was about time to try it. I went for the “five course menu” (EUR 69.00). But that is something you only get to after you had been seated in the lounge area and welcomed by the waiter and the […]

Amazing Tantanmen soup with – unfortunately – slow service: Restaurant Saku (26. September 2018)

Amazing Tantanmen soup with – unfortunately – slow service: Restaurant Saku (26. September 2018)

The Saku remains a great place for a hearty, tasty business lunch – just make sure to book in advance as the place is rather small. Although today, the place was actually not so crowded but this might also be attributable to the fact that this day was among the last days of summer. They […]

Swift service, affordable and decent pizza: Restaurant Casa Palmieri (25. September 2018)

It is quite a while ago since I visited Düsseldorf and today I only had that one day to spend there (fly in / fly out) but I managed to get lunch at the Casa Palmieri – and the offer is quite decent. I went for the “Pizza Salsicca (spicy, Italian salami)” (EUR 12.00) which […]

Good price performance but you walk out smelly: Restaurant Ach’i (24. September 2018)

Good price performance but you walk out smelly: Restaurant Ach’i (24. September 2018)

I haven’t paid the Restaurant Ach’i a visit for about two years but the place still exists and they still offer decent dishes for a very fair price. I went for the “deep fried curry dumplings” (CHF 5.00) as a starter (the one thing below in the picture) and they were actually quite good but […]

Decent buffet if you need to be here: Restaurant Charles Lindbergh @ Hilton Munich Airport (23. September 2018)

Decent buffet if you need to be here: Restaurant Charles Lindbergh @ Hilton Munich Airport (23. September 2018)

Sometimes you are on the unlucky side of life and your flight gets cancelled short notice so you end up in a hotel over night you never wanted to be in – and for me that was the Hilton Munich Airport. To be fair, nothing against the hotel, solid, fine if you have to stay […]
