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 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 […]

A truly unique Italian dining experience in a family-run restaurant: Restaurant L’Altro (10. June 2020)

A truly unique Italian dining experience in a family-run restaurant: Restaurant L’Altro (10. June 2020)

The L’Altro is just something else – a restaurant which offers simple yet delicious Italian dishes in a lovely atmosphere and with very professional and friendly staff. Once we had ordered our dishes, we got a little trait from the kitchen, “pappa al pomodoro with bread croutons and Parmesan foam” which was intense in flavor […]

Delicious and light Asian lunch offering: Restaurant Metropol (10. June 2020)

I have walked by the Restaurant Metropol many times before and the restaurant was recommended to me a couple of times, however, so far I never had managed to pay it a visit, so it was finally about time. Booking in advance in these times is crucial to save a spot for lunch. I went […]

Decent quick and simple business lunch: Restaurant Asian Moon (9. June 2020)

It is seven years ago since I’ve paid the Asian Moon a visit – or, to be more precise, I think I’ve only ever taken ‘to go meals’ there. In any case, this day, I decided to have something in that restaurant and tried one of the five lunch menus of the day, the “crispy […]

Great dishes Italian style in a traditional atmosphere: Restaurant Bindella (8. June 2020)

Although I have been to many Bindella restaurants I haven’t been to the ‘Restaurant Bindella’, so it was about time to do exactly that. The place is appealing but has also a rather traditional interior design which reminds you of an old, traditional Italian restaurant. The tables are divided with little glass dividers making sure […]

Decent for a quick work lunch: Restaurant tiffins (8. June 2020)

It is quite some time ago since I’ve paid the Tiffins a visit but given it made sure that the social distancing measures are adhered to, I decided to give it another try. I went for the daily menu which was “Black Bean Beef (beef, black bean sauce, mushrooms, bamboo, bell peppers, onions, leek)” (CHF […]

Great traditional Swiss dishes with jovial service: Restaurant Old Swiss House (7. June 2020)

I walked past the Old Swiss House a number of times and somehow I never felt like going in but since it had been recently recommended to me by friends, I figured, it’s a good location to give a try for father’s day. We had booked a table in advance and since it was only […]

Lovely service and decent dishes after a round of golf: Restaurant 19 @ Migros Golfpark Otelfingen (6. June 2020)

Lovely service and decent dishes after a round of golf: Restaurant 19 @ Migros Golfpark Otelfingen (6. June 2020)

After a round of golf, the Restaurant 19 is a surprisingly nice location to have something small to eat. Admittedly, it isn’t really the most atmospheric place but that is easily compensated for through the friendly and caring service and the definitely tasty dishes. I went for the “Golfpark-Beef-Burger (medium, 200gr; home-made chimichurri, avocado, cole […]
