Half-empty restaurant with a good COVID-19 concept: Restaurant Aura (27. May 2020)

Even two weeks after the lock-down had been lifted, restaurants are still half empty, if at all. The Aura has set the tables far apart to ensure the compliance with the distance requirements. And you would expect the place to be entirely full, given there are only few spaces but quite the opposite is true […]

The first restaurant visit after two months during COVID-19 times: Restaurant MASI Wine Bar (14. May 2020)

It is kind of surreal when you walk into a restaurant after more than two months of not eating out. However, in the end, things aren’t so different to how they were before. Sure, there are certain precautionary measures taken like yellow lines on the floor so you keep your distance, the waiter wearing gloves, […]

Excellent service experience on SWISS First flight LX158 ZRH – KIX (7. March 2020)

Excellent service experience on SWISS First flight LX158 ZRH – KIX (7. March 2020)

Due to the Corona Virus the First class cabin was pretty much empty – which allowed one to change seats at will and to experience the whole cabin basically from all possible imaginable angles. Starting with a glass of white wine and a “carrot tartar” which was quite refreshing, I was in a good mood […]

Nice experience but not as great as in previous visits: SWISS First Class Lounge Terminal E (7. March 2020)

Nice experience but not as great as in previous visits: SWISS First Class Lounge Terminal E (7. March 2020)

I love returning to the SWISS First Class Lounge in the E terminal as it always is the start of a nice adventure. This time, the adventure started with a “Tom Kha Gai (chicken, oyster mushroom, lotus root, water spinach)” which was great in terms of flavor but also had a nice spiciness to it. […]

Delicious local food from Engadine in a homey atmosphere: Restaurant Pensiun Aldier (5. March 2020)

Delicious local food from Engadine in a homey atmosphere: Restaurant Pensiun Aldier (5. March 2020)

The Pensiun Aldier is a small local hotel which has a nice dining room which is entirely held in wood. Once you’re seated – and booking a table in advance is highly recommended – you are served a small appetizer which was “egg cream on pumpernickel bread” which was quite intense in flavor and actually […]

A lovely walk to a traditional Swiss restaurant: Restaurant Val d’Uina (3. March 2020)

A lovely walk to a traditional Swiss restaurant: Restaurant Val d’Uina (3. March 2020)

Getting to the Restaurant Val d’Uina is definitely a nice little walk from Scuol of about 90 minutes and 6 kilometers and when the weather is nice as it was that day, I would definitely recommend you to take that stroll through the winter landscape. Once you’ve arrived, you find yourself in a traditional restaurant […]

A truly Swiss experience – Metzgete: Alpwirtschaft Unterlauelen (28. February 2020)

Metzgete is a Swiss tradition where all the parts of the animal after it’s slaughtered are used so you end up with a whole lot of delicacies. The restaurant Unterlauelen in the Eigenthal in the middle of nowhere is offering ‘Metzgete’ also in February (usually you can find it in late autumn) and it was […]

Great business lunch offering in a nice setting: Restaurant Smith and de Luma (21. February 2020)

Since I’ve recently been to the Smith and de Luma for an event (MEAT Academy), I decided to give it a try again for a regular lunch. And I must say that it is a place I can absolutely recommend. They offer a lunch menu for CHF 32.00 starting with a “cauliflower soup” which was […]
