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.

Better than expected – breakfast @ Restaurant @ Holiday Inn Express Rosario (26. October 2017)

Better than expected – breakfast @ Restaurant @ Holiday Inn Express Rosario (26. October 2017)

I was honestly positively surprised of the breakfast selection in the restaurant in the Holiday Inn Express. To be fair here, my expectations were relatively low, so it was quite easy to be positively surprised but I really didn’t expect that there would be a variety of cheeses, cold cuts … … cereals and fresh […]

An absolute no go – never come here: Restaurant Nicasio (25. October 2017)

An absolute no go – never come here: Restaurant Nicasio (25. October 2017)

When you’re really hungry it is still the best thing to be patiently looking for a nice place and not settle for the first best which pops up. Unfortunately, that’s what I did that evening as I was basically starving after a 400+ km drive from Córdoba to Rosario. I shouldn’t have. I went for […]

Another average breakfast: Restaurant La Pampa @ Sheraton Cordoba Hotel (25. October 2017)

The breakfast selection in the La Pampa is quite decent as you get a bit of everything you could potentially need for breakfast – fresh cut fruits and a variety of vegetables … … milk, chocolate milk, and some sweets … … a huge variety of sweet pastries … … and some regular bread. And […]

A very solid experience: Restaurant Alcorta (24. October 2017)

A very solid experience: Restaurant Alcorta (24. October 2017)

The “Arrollado de Ternera con Verduras (dressed veal with vegetables)” (120 ARS) is something you can kind of find on every menu in any Argentinian restaurant – at least that is what it seemed like. Therefore, it was finally time to try that ‘dressed veal’. And while it did not entirely look appealing at first, […]

Right at the border to Chile – there’s nothing, but: Restaurant Portal de Las Cuevas (22. October 2017)

Right at the border to Chile – there’s nothing, but: Restaurant Portal de Las Cuevas (22. October 2017)

When you have been driving almost 200 kilometers from Mendoza through the Andes to the last town towards the border to Chile, you end up in Las Cuevas. When we’re speaking about a town here, we’re exaggerating a bit. There is a couple of houses, mostly restaurants, and a church. Japp, that’s it. Nothing else […]

So many waiters, empty restaurant – and still bad service: Restaurant Zampa (21. October 2017)

So many waiters, empty restaurant – and still bad service: Restaurant Zampa (21. October 2017)

At first, the Restaurant Zampa looked incredibly promising – shabby from the outside. Only one door to enter which is closed and you have to know so they’ll let you in. Somehow intriguing, somehow interesting. The place was almost empty when we had arrived and shortly after being seated, some “pizza dough with a mayonnaise […]

A welcoming change to all those parrillas: Restaurant Josefina (21. October 2017)

A welcoming change to all those parrillas: Restaurant Josefina (21. October 2017)

The Josefina is a lovely little restaurant which offers very good food for fair prices – and definitely more refined than the average place I’ve been to so far (with the exception of 1884). As a starter I went for “tartar de lomo sobre confit de puerros y verdeo, con yema a la plancha, nachos […]

RBF decoration with average breakfast: Restaurant Mirador @ Sheraton Mendoza (21. October 2017)

The breakfast selection at the Restaurant Mirador on the 17th floor of the Sheraton Mendoza is decent but definitely nothing extraordinary. You get toasted bread … … a variety of juices, among them quite interesting ones with carrots, parsley, or celery as well as a variety of cereals. The selection of sweet pastry is super […]
