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.

Amazing place to enjoy a traditional Arabic shisha: Tetería Nazarí (28. December 2019)

Amazing place to enjoy a traditional Arabic shisha: Tetería Nazarí (28. December 2019)

The great thing about Granada is that the city was once ruled by Arabs which still shows in various elements of the city. One of them being the fact that there are many tea houses where they also sell shisha. So, it was time for me to get an “apple shisha” (EUR 9.00) which is […]

Bad service but great to take in some sun: Restaurant Tetería Marrakech (28. December 2019)

Bad service but great to take in some sun: Restaurant Tetería Marrakech (28. December 2019)

There is a little patio in the old Arabic city part of Granada which is located in front of the place from which you have the best view onto Alhambra. The place really lives from its location as the service is terribly slow but at least the food is quite okay, the “hummus (chickpea cream, […]

Elige tenerlo todo – when your motto is your curse: Restaurant Maria de la O (27. December 2019)

Elige tenerlo todo – when your motto is your curse: Restaurant Maria de la O (27. December 2019)

The Maria de la O is recommended in the Guide Michelin 2019 and, therefore, I thought I’d give it a try. When I arrived I was a bit shocked as the place is really just a bar on the ground floor. And not really too much of an appealing one given they weren’t able to […]

Perfect restaurant to sit outside in the sun and enjoy a bite: Restaurant Taberna La Fresquera (27. December 2019)

When you randomly stroll through the streets of Granada to find out that the restaurant you intended to go to is closed due to Christmas vacation, you end up in the next best thing. In this case this was La Taberna La Fresquera which was actually very nice given you get to sit outside in […]

Lovely atmosphere but very average breakfast: Restaurant El Claustro @ Hotel Palacio De Santa Paula, Autograph Collection (27. December 2019)

The breakfast selection at the El Claustro is relatively limited. There is a bit of everything but beyond the basics like fruit … … a few cold cuts and cheeses … … and more fruit … … or cereal elements … … bread with the typical Spanish tomato sauce as well as guacamole is all […]

Nice experience in a former monastery: Restaurant Alacena de las Monjas (26. December 2019)

Nice experience in a former monastery: Restaurant Alacena de las Monjas (26. December 2019)

The Alacena de las Monjas is basically an old crypt which has been repurposed as a restaurant and is rather nice in terms of atmosphere. The upper part on ground level isn’t all that appealing but once you walk down and are seated in one of the little cave, things lighten up. You are getting […]

Amazing view onto the Alhambra during sunset: El Huerto de Juan Ranas (26. December 2019)

The El Huerto de Juan Ranas is mainly good for one thing which is watching the sunset over the Alhambra. And if you are early enough you get to sit in a nice spot, take in the sun and wait for it to go down while you drink a “water” (EUR 3.00) or a “green […]

Lovely interior, great food, and good service: Restaurant Alameda (26. December 2019)

Recently, I started to rely more and more on the “Guide Michelin 2019” app and in most cases it has turned out to be a good guide – ultimately also today. At first, I wanted to visit another restaurant which was closer to my hotel but it turned out that it didn’t exist anymore! However, […]
