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.

Quite amazing meat in the middle of nowhere in Hamburg: Restaurant Arizona Steak-House (2. September 2017)

Quite amazing meat in the middle of nowhere in Hamburg: Restaurant Arizona Steak-House (2. September 2017)

I guess I would never have entered the Arizona Steak-House. Not because of the place but because it is rather remote, i.e. far from the city centre. However, given we were there in the context of a bachelor party and the bachelor eats there quite often, we ended up there. The place is loud, full, […]

Surprisingly decent beer house in Hamburg: Restaurant Hofbräu Esplande (2. September 2017)

Surprisingly decent beer house in Hamburg: Restaurant Hofbräu Esplande (2. September 2017)

I was not aware that there was a Hofbräuhaus in Hamburg – but hey, there is always the time when you learn something new. Somehow not so surprising, it was almost empty when we entered it on a sunny Saturday afternoon and ordered a “Jausen Brett (meat paste, bacon, pepper biter, cold roast, obadzda, leberkäs, […]

Friendly service with average beef filet: Restaurant Gaucho (31. August 2017)

It is quite some time ago since I’ve been to the Restaurant Gaucho and I remember that I’ve liked it the last time, so I was all the more curious how it was going to be this time. As a starter I went for “different antipasti” (CHF 24.00 per person; for two people) which were […]

Very authentic Asian cuisine: Restaurant Ach’i (31. August 2017)

A friend of mine recommended the Restaurant Ach’i to me – and I must admit while I was a bit wondering at first about the place I have to admit that it is absolutely worth visiting. Just one hint of caution – you can’t book a table so make sure to be early for lunch, […]

Rather average hotel food: Restaurant Horizon 10 @ Hilton Zurich Airport (28. August 2017)

Rather average hotel food: Restaurant Horizon 10 @ Hilton Zurich Airport (28. August 2017)

Usually, the Horizon 10 is not really a place where I would decide to have dinner but given a friend was visiting Zurich, I decided to make it easier and eat there. I went for the “organic salmon, tomato concassé, fennel, jasmin rice, coriander” (CHF 38.00) and while the salmon was good, it was quite […]

Decent dishes but a bit over-priced: Restaurant Real (28. August 2017)

Decent dishes but a bit over-priced: Restaurant Real (28. August 2017)

While I have tried a couple of restaurants in the vicinity of the Restaurant Real, I have actually never been here before. Given th rating was quite good, I decided to give it a try and went for the “menu” (CHF 42.00) which started with some “bread and butter” being served and luckily being restocked […]

Bringing the people to the food and not the other way round: Dinner im Grünen (27. August 2017)

Bringing the people to the food and not the other way round: Dinner im Grünen (27. August 2017)

I have attended a few ‘Secret Dinners’ so far and while the location wasn’t ‘secret’ this time, it was set up by the same organizer. And frankly, it was a different but pleasurable experience. The idea was to bring the people to the dishes and not the dishes to the people, therefore, it took place […]

Hearty and comforting food after a great hike: Restaurant Grimselwelt @ Hotel Handeck (27. August 2017)

If you are into hiking you should definitely pay a visit to this area – they have wonderful hiking trails and if you manage to get a ticket to get up to “Lake Gelmer”, you definitely should. One of the most beautiful landscapes I’ve seen in Switzerland. After you’ve circled the lake, it is time […]
