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.

Amazingly tasty Chinese dishes: Restaurant Bund 39 (7. November 2019)

The Bund 39 is a new restaurant in Zurich which claims to serve authentic Chinese dishes – naturally, I was a bit skeptical about that as my China experience in terms of food has not always been one which was in line with my taste (e.g. the chicken feet skin). However, I decided to give […]

Amazing Japanese Tepanyaki experience – prepared right in front of your eyes: Restaurant Fujiya of Japan (6. November 2019)

I have been to the Fujiya of Japan about 4 years ago and it was already nice back then. But I haven’t been here for dinner and today was that day. I went for the “Chef Takahira San’s Signature Menu” (CHF 105.00) which started with “beef carpaccio with wasabi cream, sesame oil, rice vinegar” which […]

Perfect for a lazy afternoon with a glass of wine: Humble Grape Wine Bar Liverpool Street (5. November 2019)

Perfect for a lazy afternoon with a glass of wine: Humble Grape Wine Bar Liverpool Street (5. November 2019)

I found the Humble Grape Wine Bar more by accident than anything else but it is definitely a place I can highly recommend. It is a rather small location which is really set up like a wine bar in all aspects – be it interior decoration, be it the menu itself (which offers pretty much […]

Perfect lunch before a short-haul flight in Europe: SWISS First Class Lounge A (5. November 2019)

When you have a long-haul flight in First, you are allowed to use the First Class lounge in Zurich after arrival if you have another flight the same day – as did I. So, it was perfect to briefly go home, drop the luggage, get a shower, and finally get back to the airport to […]

Absolutely delicious Northern Indian cuisine: Restaurant Dum Pukht @ ITC Maurya, A Luxury Collection Hotel, New Delhi (4. November 2019)

The Dum Pukht was recommended in many tourist guides and I was not aware that it was in the same hotel I was staying at until the day before. The restaurant serves traditional Northern Indian cuisine which started again with some crispy breads, onions, and a variety of sauces which were perfect to start especially […]

Eating with your bare hands – interesting experience: Restaurant Bukhara @ ITC Maurya, A Luxury Collection Hotel, New Delhi (3. November 2019)

The restaurant Bukhara is apparently one of the best restaurants in New Delhi and it was absolutely fully booked that night. Given I had made a mistake with my bookings I had erroneously booked a table for Monday instead of Sunday evening and when requesting to move it accordingly to Sunday on short notice, they […]

Decent low-cost lunch buffet: Restaurant Mughal Pavillion @ ITC Mughal, A Luxury Collection Hotel, Agra (3. November 2019)

Given I was rather skeptical in trying out a local restaurant (due to being afraid of having major stomach issues afterwards), the guide brought us to their sister hotel in Agra, the ITC Mughal where they offer a “brunch buffet incl. soft beverages” (1’999 INR) with quite an extensive buffet ranging from all kinds of […]

Asian restaurant standards aren’t the same – dining at No. 17 of Asia: Restaurant Indian Accent (2. Nocember 2019)

I was looking forward at dining at number 17 of the world and ended up wondering how the “Indian Accent” is better than “The Clove Club” (which is no. 27 and I had just had lunch at two days earlier in London) until I figured that the “Indian Accent” was number 17 of Asia and […]
