Decent breakfast selection right by a main street: Restaurant faborit fresh bar (11. May 2018)

Due to the fact that the hotel had originally communicated the breakfast times wrongly, I ended up getting breakfast in the Restaurant faborit fresh bar which is right across the street of The Westin Palace. And while at first I was a bit surprised about the location, it turns out the dishes – once you’re […]

Great drink based on a local candy: Bar Museo 1912 @ The Westin Palace (10. May 2018)

Great drink based on a local candy: Bar Museo 1912 @ The Westin Palace (10. May 2018)

Apparently, “La Violeta” is a world-famous candy in Madrid which – as the name already suggests – is violet. I haven’t tried the candy but coincidentally I’ve been talking about it before entering the bar, so I couldn’t help it but actually try the drink called “La Violetera (inspired in the traditional Madrid violet candies […]

An absolute must when you visit Madrid: El Mercado de San Miguel (10. May 2018)

Every time I am coming to Madrid, I just have to pay the El Mercado de San Miguel a visit as it is one of these places you just want to go back to. They have so many lovely foods and you just want to try them all. Starting with the “fried sardines” (EUR 15.00) […]

Decent lunch buffet in a take away place: Restaurant Neuhaus (9. May 2018)

When I first saw the place, I was super surprised and not necessarily in a positive way as it looked like a pure take-away joint. Turns out, that it is actually a proper restaurant with a very decent lunch buffet selection for CHF 22.90. Starting with a nice variety of ‘salad’ … … a couple […]

Expensive shisha but interesting for people watching: Al Arez 2 (7. May 2018)

Googling the ‘best shisha lounge in London’ we landed in a place called Mamouniah Lounge. When entering the guy asked if we were of the concept of the Mamouniah shisha which cost 40.00 GBP per person. Now, that must be an amazing shisha, however, the decision was taken quite quickly to not stay there and […]

Surprisingly lovely breakfast with exquisite service: The Trianon @ The Park Tower Hotel Knightsbridge, A Luxury Collection (7. May 2018)

Surprisingly lovely breakfast with exquisite service: The Trianon @ The Park Tower Hotel Knightsbridge, A Luxury Collection (7. May 2018)

The breakfast offer at The Trianon looks at first a bit disappointing as the corner where the dishes are displayed looks rather dull and small. However, when you spend a few minutes there to check what they actually offer, it is suddenly all not so bad anymore. The selection ranges from all kinds of warm […]

The typical French service – unfriendly as hell: Restaurant Le Village Ronsard (6. May 2018)

To finish off the day, we decided to try another restaurant recommended in ‘Where Chefs Eat‘ but unfortunately, the ones close were either closed or even closed for good. So, we ended up in a relatively touristic place with surprisingly many locals. I went for the “Gratinée à l’oignon” (EUR 9.90) which was a typical […]

First time I’ve tried frog legs: Restaurant Aux Lyonnais (5. May 2018)

My absolutely favourite book when travelling is ‘Where Chefs Eat‘ which is basically the perfect tourist guide for any city which is mentioned in there. Especially, when you are considering visiting the restaurants mentioned in there as they are absolutely lovely and recommended by Michelin starred chefs (but the restaurants recommended are not necessarily Michelin […]
