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.

When the restaurants are open again in Paris after COVID-19: Restaurant Le Grand Colbert (19. June 2020)

Given the restaurants in France only just opened up, it wasn’t entirely easy to find a place for dinner but the Le Grand Colbert was among the few which were open again. The interior of the place is a typical nice French brassiere in terms of design. The tables are tiny and there isn’t much […]

Lovely setup and nice dishes with friendly service: Restaurant 50 zu 5 (18. June 2020)

The experience at the 50zu5 is almost always a very pleasant one. And frankly, in Corona-times even more so. The fact that you have to adhere to certain distancing measures makes it in so far better as you really have enough space between the tables which increases your level of privacy. The waitress that evening […]

Delicious Italian dishes in a perfect social distancing setup: Restaurant La Piazzetta (17. June 2020)

It is quite some time ago since I’ve visited the La Piazzetta but I have realized again that it really is a nice place which offers good dishes for dinner. Although we had booked in advance, there was really no reason to do so as the place was almost empty – and remained almost empty […]

Korean barbecue where you wouldn’t expect it: Restaurant Shilla (16. June 2020)

Korean barbecue where you wouldn’t expect it: Restaurant Shilla (16. June 2020)

The Shilla is located in the former Restaurant Poco Loco which I used to frequent about 20 years ago. And while it doesn’t really look that appealing from the outside, I was very positively surprised about the quality of the food you get there. We went for “Kalbi Mandu (meat dumplings)” (CHF 10.00) as one […]

Pre-booking a table during COVID-19 times is a must: Restaurant Einstein Bistro (15. June 2020)

Pre-booking a table during COVID-19 times is a must: Restaurant Einstein Bistro (15. June 2020)

What you get at the Einstein Bistro remains enjoyable – the “Zuercher Geschnetzeltes with Roesti” (CHF 39.00) is not only a nice big portion (although it doesn’t really look like), it’s also absolutely tasty! They set up the restaurant in a way so there is enough space between the single tables which is definitely something […]

Decent for a quick bite: Restaurant eNDi Burger (12. June 2020)

I drove by the eNDi Burger restaurant so many times but never managed to top and try their burgers. Today was the day! I went for the “cheese burger (140gr beef patty from 100% Swiss Limousin beef, Greyezer cheese, eggplant mayonnaise, eNDi Barbecuesauce, leaf salad, buns)” (CHF 20.50) with “additional jalapeños” (CHF 2.00) and “a […]

Lovely view onto Lake Zurich with good dishes – but a slow kitchen: Restaurant Fischer’s Fritz (12. June 2020)

Lovely view onto Lake Zurich with good dishes – but a slow kitchen: Restaurant Fischer’s Fritz (12. June 2020)

The Fischer’s Fritz is famous for its “fish crisps with home-made tartare sauce” (CHF 35.50). The catch of the day was perch. The crisps are actually amazing as there is a lot of fish and not much batter making it a proper meal. However, there isn’t much tartare sauce which made me order some more […]

When the intern is attending you and you just won’t get your glass of wine: Restaurant Brasserie Freilager (11. Juni 2020)

To me, the Brasserie Freilager is an incredibly reliable location where you get good food for a fair price with decent service in a nice atmosphere. And today, that was true again. To a large degree at least. The service part did not entirely work out well. Given the place was rather full, there was […]
