Perfect for a decent and swift lunch meal: Restaurant Brasserie Federal (28. July 2020)

What I like about the Brasserie Federal is the fact that they serve hearty Swiss dishes quite quickly and make sure you won’t spend hours and hours waiting for your dish. When I sat down, it took a bit until a waiter showed up, but once he realised I was there, everything went quite quickly. […]

A place where you wouldn’t expect to find a lovely garden: Restaurant Sternen Albisrieden (22. July 2020)

Although I have driven by the Sternen Albisrieden more than 100 times over the past few years, it never crossed my mind to get in there and have a meal. Luckily, a friend of mine suggested having lunch here and it was a surprisingly good decision. I went for the “veal cordon bleu (stuffed with […]

Traditional restaurant with decent food: Restaurant Schweizerheim (21. July 2020)

Traditional restaurant with decent food: Restaurant Schweizerheim (21. July 2020)

The Schweizerheim is frankly not a place I would have walked into, but as my sister recommended it, I figured, it’s worth giving a try. And I must admit that it is actually absolutely enjoyable. The place is relatively simple and the location isn’t the best as it is next to the main road but […]

When the kitchen is definitely way too slow: Restaurant terrasse (21. July 2020)

When the kitchen is definitely way too slow: Restaurant terrasse (21. July 2020)

What I like about the terrasse is the fact that you get to sit outside – what I don’t like about the terrasse is the fact that the service is very slow especially during lunchtime which is really quite annoying. I decided to go for the “veal tartar (veal tartare, celery, herb salad, estragon crème […]

An incredibly cheesy cordon bleu worth trying: Restaurant Werdguet (16. July 2020)

An incredibly cheesy cordon bleu worth trying: Restaurant Werdguet (16. July 2020)

The Restaurant Werguet is somehow a hidden gem as it is probably a place I would not have entered by my own but a friend suggested it as a meeting point to play ‘Jass’ (a typical Swiss card game) and it turned out to be a very good location to do exactly that plus have […]

Solid lunch option if you’re into burgers: Restaurant Helvti Dinner Bellevue (9. July 2020)

Solid lunch option if you’re into burgers: Restaurant Helvti Dinner Bellevue (9. July 2020)

It’s about one and a half years ago since I’ve last paid the Helvti Dinner Bellevue a visit and I must say that it’s actually quite a good place for a quick – but admittedly heavy – lunch bite. I went for the “Swiss Burger (finest Swiss Angus beef, Swiss Alpine cheese, Rösti potatoes, cocktail […]

The closest thing to ‘real Mexican food’ you can find in Zurich: Restaurant El Alebrije (8. July 2020)

The closest thing to ‘real Mexican food’ you can find in Zurich: Restaurant El Alebrije (8. July 2020)

The El Alebrije had been recommended to me by a friend – and I must say I was super sceptical as usually ‘Mexican’ food outside of Mexico isn’t really all that great. But I was more than happy to be proven wrong that evening! They have very typical local beverages like “Modelo Especial” (CHF 7.50) […]

A surprisingly good lunch offering where you’d not expect it: Restaurant Vecchia Posta (8. July 2020)

A surprisingly good lunch offering where you’d not expect it: Restaurant Vecchia Posta (8. July 2020)

The Vecchia Posta is a little restaurant located close to the main station but actually hidden quite well. Although I spent a couple of years in St. Gallen during my studies and again more than a year for work, I never read or heard or saw the Vecchia Posta. Therefore, I was quite surüprised to […]
