Learning about a new root – stachys: Restaurant Wirtschaft zur Au (13. January 2017)

Who would have thought that I’d learn about a root in the Wirtschaft zur Au. Definitely not me! But I did – the starter was a “leaf salad with stachys, mountain potato chips and a honey mustard dressing”. I was wondering what stachys was and it turned out to be a root (which doesn’t look […]

Surprisingly good lunch with great view – if you’re lucky: Restaurant Allegra @ Uto Kulm (13. January 2017)

The lunch menu this day was a soup as a starter which was rich and flavourful … … followed by “Penne with beef cubes”. The pasta was perfectly al dente, the sauce was good and the beef cubes were absolutely tender. The portion was also quite generous and actually almost at the brink of being […]

Quick and friendly business lunch in medium atmosphere: Japan Restaurant BIMI (12. January 2017)

Quick and friendly business lunch in medium atmosphere: Japan Restaurant BIMI (12. January 2017)

Sometimes I wonder how restaurants keep aligned their prices and how they determine them. The bento box was – at least if I call correctly – CHF 28.00 on the menu. On the bill, it was CHF 22.00. Not that I’m complaining but I really do wonder how restaurants make money with such kinds of […]

Amazing bargain for a Zurich lunch: Restaurant Gärtnerei Seefeld (11. January 2017)

While the Gärtnerei is not really a place I would have thought of to go because always assuming it was vegetarian, it turned out that it is actually a place I can imagine ending up at more often. I went for the lunch menu which offers a salad to pick (medium size), a soup, and […]

Decent Italian business lunch with non-attentive service: Restaurant Amalfi (10. January 2017)

I have been a couple of times at the Restaurant Amalfi but it is quite some time ago since the last visit. A lunch menu for CHF 19.00 sounded like a great bargain and definitely untypical for Zurich. The “potato cream soup” as a starter was decent. It could have been a tiny bit thicker […]

Great bargain for lunch with varying service quality: Restaurant Razzia (9. January 2017)

Great bargain for lunch with varying service quality: Restaurant Razzia (9. January 2017)

It is not often that you get a lunch menu for CHF 28.00 but in Razzia you can (including starter and main course). Today, it was a “carrot ginger soup” as a starter which was thick, intense, and tasty. The starter was served only shortly after we have taken a seat and placed our order. […]

Good breakfast selection with friendly service: Café Entweder Oder (6. January 2017)

Good breakfast selection with friendly service: Café Entweder Oder (6. January 2017)

The “mixed breakfast (Emmental, Gouda, Brie, Italian salami, chorizo, bell pepper turkey, Serrano ham, herb curd, self-made jam, butter, fresh oil and three small breads)” (EUR 7.60) is a quite decent breakfast selection with a little bit of everything. It is nothing out of the ordinary in terms of ingredients but it does the trick […]

A speak easy which is not really a speak easy anymore: Buck and Breck (5. January 2017)

The Buck and Breck is a speak easy which is not really a speak easy anymore. While the entrance is still quite hidden and you have to know where to ring the bell in order to be admitted (and it looks nothing like a bar from outside), the information around the bar is quite publicly […]
