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.

Interesting dishes in an outstanding atmosphere: Restaurant Wirtschaft im Franz (11. February 2020)

It’s about two years ago since I’ve last been to the Wirtschaft im Franz and I mus say it is still a place which I can recommend. It is not entirely easy to find and there aren’t too many parking spots around the restaurant which makes it a bit annoying to get there but once […]

Decent lunch offering in a nice atmosphere: Restaurant Die Rüsterei (11. February 2020)

The salad which was served as a starter was rather rich and luscious in terms of variety of ingredients and the salad sauce was actually quite delicious too. The “veal meatloaf, wild mushrooms, mashed potatoes, mushroom cream sauce” (CHF 38.00) was quite a big portion – the meat loaf was about 3cm thick which is […]

An absolutely great place to enjoy a good entrecôte: Restaurant Noir – Maison d’Entrecôte (10. February 2020)

While the starter was a bit disappointing, i.e. a “leaf salad with radish, chest nuts and djion mustard dressing” … … the main course, an “Entrecôte “Gentleman’s Cut” (250gr) with Noir Signature Sauce” (CHF 59.00), was actually absolutely delicious. The meat was perfectly medium-rare as requested and the Noir Signature Sauce was quite enjoyable on […]

Great location for a swift business lunch menu: Restaurant Bärengasse (10. February 2020)

Great location for a swift business lunch menu: Restaurant Bärengasse (10. February 2020)

I increasingly become a fan of the lunch menus in the restaurant Bärengasse – today, the menu started with “truffled black salsify soup” which was intense in flavor and quite enjoyable. As a main course, they served a “Viennese Schnitzel” (CHF 32.00) which was not only quite large in terms of size but also sufficiently […]

Good food but way too much time between the courses: Restaurant Huber (8. February 2020)

Good food but way too much time between the courses: Restaurant Huber (8. February 2020)

The restaurant Huber was recommended to me by the “Guide Michelin 2020” app and given I have – to a large degree – made good experiences with it, I decided to also give it a try this time. I went for the “four course tasting menu” (EUR 79.00) and the “wine pairing” (EUR 39.00). The […]

Modern kitchen and interesting tasting menu Berlin-sytle: Restaurant VOLT (7. February 2020)

The Restaurant VOLT is located in the Kreuzberg area so a bit off from the city center, however, it’s worth the ride to Kreuzbeg. The evening started with three different small bites (“black cabbage leave, mustard seeds, and mustard cream”, “rip meat ball with soy mayonnaise” and “wan tan chip, trout tartare, lemon mayonnaise”) to […]

Decent Asian lunch offering but tiny tables and no privacy: Restaurant Chén Chè (6. February 2020)

Decent Asian lunch offering but tiny tables and no privacy: Restaurant Chén Chè (6. February 2020)

I was a bit too early for lunch so I asked about 15 minutes before if I could just sit down and wait while working – I was politely told that this is not possible due to the fact that they were busy preparing the tables for lunch. Generally, that is absolutely fine but when […]
