I started the blog in October 2009, while living in Milan which I definitely consider to be one of the food capitals of the world. I was in touch with food since my early childhood (as my father is a former chef). Whenever I can, I travel the world to discover new places, to meet people but mostly to try local dishes and to find hidden gems! If you know a place worth going, please drop a line to: info@thediningexperience.org.
Currently, I am a member of the following food-related associations: Chevalier @Chaîne des Rôtisseurs Zurich-Ville; Membre Gourmet Dégustateur @Ordre Mondial des Gourmets Dégustateurs [OMGD]; Gesellschafter @Goldener Fisch and Member @Slowfood Convivium Zurich City.

Delicious local food from Engadine in a homey atmosphere: Restaurant Pensiun Aldier (5. March 2020)

Delicious local food from Engadine in a homey atmosphere: Restaurant Pensiun Aldier (5. March 2020)

The Pensiun Aldier is a small local hotel which has a nice dining room which is entirely held in wood. Once you’re seated – and booking a table in advance is highly recommended – you are served a small appetizer which was “egg cream on pumpernickel bread” which was quite intense in flavor and actually […]

A lovely walk to a traditional Swiss restaurant: Restaurant Val d’Uina (3. March 2020)

Getting to the Restaurant Val d’Uina is definitely a nice little walk from Scuol of about 90 minutes and 6 kilometers and when the weather is nice as it was that day, I would definitely recommend you to take that stroll through the winter landscape. Once you’ve arrived, you find yourself in a traditional restaurant […]

A truly Swiss experience – Metzgete: Alpwirtschaft Unterlauelen (28. February 2020)

Metzgete is a Swiss tradition where all the parts of the animal after it’s slaughtered are used so you end up with a whole lot of delicacies. The restaurant Unterlauelen in the Eigenthal in the middle of nowhere is offering ‘Metzgete’ also in February (usually you can find it in late autumn) and it was […]

A great vegetarian hideaway in the city centre: Restaurant Temple Natura (26. February 2020)

A great vegetarian hideaway in the city centre: Restaurant Temple Natura (26. February 2020)

If you are hungry around 4pm in Palma de Mallorca it is rather difficult to find a place which is still open and when I got across Temple Natura I was a bit skeptical as it is a vegetarian location. However, given the good ratings in Google (4.6 on average), I was keen to give […]

The perfect place for large tapas: Restaurant La Bodeguilla (25. February 2020)

The perfect place for large tapas: Restaurant La Bodeguilla (25. February 2020)

La Bodeguilla is yet another recommendation by the Guide Michelin app 2020 and I must say, a good one. The restaurant is basically offering a selection of tapas. One thing in advance – please keep in mind, that “small portions” in Spain are much much larger than in Northern European countries. I went for the […]

Great drinks location with a harbor view for sunset: Almaq Rooftop Bar (25. February 2020)

Great drinks location with a harbor view for sunset: Almaq Rooftop Bar (25. February 2020)

The Almaq Rooftop Bar in the Es Princep hotel offers what it promises – a nice view over the city/harbor of Palma de Mallorca and some nice drinks. I went for the “mojito fresa” (EUR 14.00) which was actually surprisingly good as the drink had freshly cut fruits in it and the alcohol amount wasn’t […]

After this experience – not a deserved Michelin star: Restaurant Marc Fosh (24. February 2020)

The Marc Fosh sounded incredibly promising when I read about the place on the Guide Michelin App 2020 but it turned out that it isn’t as promising as it reads. I went for the “Marc Fosh” tasting menu (EUR 92.00 if you take all the courses) which started with a “wild mushroom and truffle cappuccino” […]

Resort experience in every aspect: Restaurant La Terrassa @ Marriott’s Club Son Antem (24. February 2020)

The La Terrassa is a simple restaurant in the Marriott’s Club Son Antem which also acts as the golf restaurant of the resort. There is a little terrace (as the name of the restaurant would suggest) where you can sit outside but it kind of lacks atmosphere. We were able to order, as we were […]
