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.

Great service and good dishes: Restaurant Cantinetta Antinori (25. July 2019)

Great service and good dishes: Restaurant Cantinetta Antinori (25. July 2019)

The Cantinetta Antinori is always a good choice – not necessarily a cheap choice – but a good one. On a hot summer day it is perfect to sit outside in the little area which is covered by trees and you don’t get to feel the heat too much. Once you’re seated, our waitress, Anna, […]

Exquisite garden atmosphere for hot summer days: Restaurant Drei Stuben (19. July 2019)

It is several years ago since I’ve last paid the Drei Stuben a visit and it is still a lovely place worth visiting – especially during lunch as they have a lovely garden with a lot of trees and, therefore, shadow which is very welcome during the hot summer days. As a starter, I went […]

Good lunch offering and nice patio to enjoy the summer: Restaurant Lagerhaus (18. July 2019)

Good lunch offering and nice patio to enjoy the summer: Restaurant Lagerhaus (18. July 2019)

The Lagerhaus is somewhat amazing in summer as you get to sit outside in the patio and enjoy the summer while it is still relatively cool. The lunch offering is always fair as you get a “menu salad” (usually CHF 4.50, but included in the menu price) which is absolutely decent. For me, the only […]

Better rated than it actually should be: Restaurant Tremondi (17. July 2019)

Better rated than it actually should be: Restaurant Tremondi (17. July 2019)

The Tremondi is rated among the best restaurants in Zurich on TripAdvisor and frankly, I do not entirely understand why. The location is somewhat hidden but generally nice and if you get to have a spot in the little patio in the back, it is definitely nice and comfortable (and protected from the sun). However, […]

Lovely atmosphere and outstandingly delicious pulpo: Restaurant Gül (16. July 2019)

When I had first visited the Gül, I was already very positively surprised as the place is atmospheric, there is a certain positive vibe to it, and it’s a bit different than many of the restaurants you find in Zurich. As it was a nice summer day, we were sitting outside and decided to go […]

Great location with good food and arbitrary service: Restaurant Razzia (15. July 2019)

Great location with good food and arbitrary service: Restaurant Razzia (15. July 2019)

I haven’t been to the Razzia for quite a while and finally it was time to give it a try and this time I went for a vegetarian option. As a starter I went for the “eggplant Ccarpaccio (feta cheese, pomegranate seeds)” (CHF 18.00) which was great as it was light, refreshing and yet very […]

A great place for a savory breakfast: Restaurant House of Marly (14. July 2019)

A great place for a savory breakfast: Restaurant House of Marly (14. July 2019)

As I highly prefer savory breakfasts, I decided to give the House of Marly a try and get a “breakfast bowl” (EUR 8.90) which was absolutely delicious as it was a combination of fresh ingredients but in a rich and savory way so you would feel like you’ve already had lunch. The prices are super […]

A very authentic Russian Jewish dining experience: Restaurant Pasternak (13. July 2019)

A very authentic Russian Jewish dining experience: Restaurant Pasternak (13. July 2019)

I was a bit skeptical about a Russian place with Jewish cuisine but was actually very positively surprised – and not only because the price performance ratio is quite great but also because the place is nice and the serivce is super friendly. I decided to go for the “Menu Gorki” (EUR 35.00) which started […]
