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.

A safe bet for tasty Italian food – with a slight main course delivery delay: Restaurant Brera Zurigo (9. June 2021)

A safe bet for tasty Italian food – with a slight main course delivery delay: Restaurant Brera Zurigo (9. June 2021)

It is almost a year ago since I’ve paid the Restaurant Brera a visit and I’m happy it’s still open as it is still a lovely place to go. To start, it’s always nice to enjoy a cocktail like the “Non Capisco” (CHF 18.00) which was refreshing and great to get your taste buds started. […]

An absolutely breath-taking view – and definitely overpriced: Restaurant La Muña @ La Réserve Eden Au Lac (8. June 2021)

I wanted to pay the La Muña a visit already pre Corona and Corona had somehow ruined my plans. Well, it was finally time to do so. If we get first to talk about the food – the summary is simple: Delicious but overpriced. We started with “maguro ceviche (red tuna ceviche, sesame, shiso)” (CHF […]

An unbearable waiting experience – with delicious outcomes: Restaurant Ooki Pavillon (4. June 2021)

I get hyped places to some extent. But what happens here is out of this world. And not in a good sense. So, basically, you can’t book a table, so you just go there and if you’re lucky and there is a table free, you get seated. If not, you wait in line, have your […]

Definitely a must visit for hot pot – a great surprise where you’d not expect it: Restaurant Uncle 7 (七叔 茶餐厅) (3. June 2021)

Definitely a must visit for hot pot – a great surprise where you’d not expect it: Restaurant Uncle 7 (七叔 茶餐厅) (3. June 2021)

Talking about positive surprises! When I heard about the Uncle 7, I was keen to try it. However, to be very fair, at first sight, I was a bit surprised since there were no other guests (which changed throughout the course of the evening) but we still decided to give it a try. As a […]

A cool place with a decent level of authenticity: Restaurant Cartell (3. June 2021)

I have read and heard about the Restaurant Cartell quite a couple of times and was wondering what the fuzz is about. And I do admit, I get it to a certain degree (not entirely though). Okay, to be fair, I’m rather skeptical here when it comes to any Mexican food being served in Europe, […]

Great Southern style BBQ meat experience: Restaurant Brisket Southern BBQ & Bar (2. June 2021)

Great Southern style BBQ meat experience: Restaurant Brisket Southern BBQ & Bar (2. June 2021)

Somehow, I keep returning to the Brisk Southern BBQ & Bar because the food is actually quite enjoyable. And so was the “cocktail of the season” (CHF 18.00). We went for the “fried munchies (mac ‘n’ cheese balls, brisket poppers and mixed pickled vegetables)” (CHF 26.00) as a starter which was absolutely fine in terms […]

When it sounds so promising but is yet so disappointing: Restaurant Portofino (1. June 2021)

When it sounds so promising but is yet so disappointing: Restaurant Portofino (1. June 2021)

The Restaurant Portofino was also on my to do list for quite a while and I must say that it is nice, but not as nice as other places by the lake. The general location is nice but the fact that you’re not right next to the shore and that people walk by all the […]

Lovely location right next to the lake shore: Restaurant L’O (31. May 2021)

Lovely location right next to the lake shore: Restaurant L’O (31. May 2021)

I have heard quite a bit about the L’O in Horgen and I must say, I do understand why. The place offers tasty dishes, friendly service, and a great atmosphere. The “petit frites, small fried fish with soy mayo” (CHF 24.00) were a good starter to begin the evening. They were super crispy of course […]
