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.

Good service but disappointing in any other way: Restaurant Lo Güeno (24. December 2019)

Good service but disappointing in any other way: Restaurant Lo Güeno (24. December 2019)

The Lo Güeno was recommended in the tourist guide book I had bought before the trip and passing it randomly while being quite hungry looked like a sign, so I had to give it a try. I went for the “tomate y anchoas del Cantábrico” (EUR 14.00) which is an incredibly simple dish but absolutely […]

Great brunch offering but weak service: Restaurant Brunchit (24. December 2019)

Great brunch offering but weak service: Restaurant Brunchit (24. December 2019)

While the dishes I had ordered were actually absolutely enjoyable, the service wasn’t really. After having taken a seat, it took them a solid 10 minutes to realize that there are customers, or to be more precise to stop ignoring the customers given other customers who came later were attended first. After all, my “Ensalada […]

The place for a typical sweet – churros: Churrería La Malagueña (23. December 2019)

The place for a typical sweet – churros: Churrería La Malagueña (23. December 2019)

After a luscious Spanish tapas dinner, it was time to give yourself a treat with something typical – so, Churros it was! I went for the “churros con chocolate”. The chocolate was thick and creamy like it should be. The churros on the other hand did not entirely live up to my expectations. The place […]

Eat like the locals do – a truly local tapas experience: Restaurant La Farola De Orellana (23. December 2019)

Eat like the locals do – a truly local tapas experience: Restaurant La Farola De Orellana (23. December 2019)

When I was at the KGB, I saw the La Farola de Orellana through the window where I was seated. And the place was super full and it looked like a lot of locals would go there (and not too many tourists). Therefore, it was time to enjoy dinner here. I took a wide selection […]

Outstanding flavor combinations – worth trying: Restaurant KGB (23. December 2019)

Outstanding flavor combinations – worth trying: Restaurant KGB (23. December 2019)

A restaurant called KGB kind of rises suspicion but it turns out the KGB is actually a restaurant recommended by the Guide Michelin for its innovative cuisine. Given I passed the restaurant on the touristic walking path, I decided to give it a try and I was blown away. I decided to try a couple […]

One of the few places which serves tasty (!) food around 5pm: Restaurant El Pimpi (22. December 2019)

One of the few places which serves tasty (!) food around 5pm: Restaurant El Pimpi (22. December 2019)

The El Pimpi was described as the most traditional restaurant in Málaga and given it was one of the few which was actually open around 5pm (which is not a time when Spaniards usually eat), it was perfect. The place is generally rather old and quite huge as it is somehow like a ‘dungeon’ (not […]

Lovely drink but not really what I’d call service excellence: Lobby Bar @ AC Hotel by Marriott Málaga Palacio (22. December 2019)

Lovely drink but not really what I’d call service excellence: Lobby Bar @ AC Hotel by Marriott Málaga Palacio (22. December 2019)

Given the room was not ready to check in at 3:30pm (which it definitely should have been), the offer was to have a drink at the bar to wait while the room was being prepared. Now, I’m not a big fan of waiting when you arrive after the guaranteed check-in time but I must say […]

An option for dinner in the vicinity to Theater 11: Restaurant Bits & Bites @ Holiday Inn (21. December 2019)

An option for dinner in the vicinity to Theater 11: Restaurant Bits & Bites @ Holiday Inn (21. December 2019)

Now, honestly, the Bits & Bites is probably not a place I’d usually visit but given I was going to see “The Book of Mormons” in the Theater 11 in Oerlikon which is right across the corner and there aren’t too many options around to get something to eat beforehand, the Bits & Bites it […]
