Perfect change for lunch in central Zurich: Restaurant Blockhus (23. March 2017)

I have walked by the Restaurant Blockhus a variety of times and it never looked too appealing to me to walk in – but given I was looking for a restaurant I haven’t visited yet which was somewhat in walking distance to my office, the Blockhus popped up and it had a rather decent rating […]

Delicious food in a place you’d never walk in but should: Restaurant Baratella (22. March 2017)

Delicious food in a place you’d never walk in but should: Restaurant Baratella (22. March 2017)

Frankly, when passing by the Restaurant Baratella, you would never consider to walk in as it does not look appealing from the outside. However, if you enter (in my case, I entered as the place was recommended to me), you will be quite positively surprised by the interior – it is simple yet neat and […]

Deliciously stuffed veal Cordon Bleu: Restaurant Lokal (22. March 2017)

Deliciously stuffed veal Cordon Bleu: Restaurant Lokal (22. March 2017)

When I first entered the Lokal in the Lokremise I was taken a bit aback as it looks like a waiting hall of a train station but when you look towards the right side (when you enter), the interior is actually quite nice with lovely small tables and chairs, white tablecloths and it just looks […]

Okay for a swift lunch – not recommended beyond that: Restaurant Santa Lucia Corso (21. March 2017)

Okay for a swift lunch – not recommended beyond that: Restaurant Santa Lucia Corso (21. March 2017)

The “pea soup with mint” (CHF 8.00) is a simple but good start for lunch – the portion is larger than you would think and the minty taste added to the rather basic pea soup makes for a good combination of flavours. The “Pizza Toscana (spicy salami)” (CHF 22.00) with “additional anchovies” (+ CHF 2.00) […]

Completely packed during lunch – no chance without a reservation: Restaurant terrasse (20. March 2017)

Completely packed during lunch – no chance without a reservation: Restaurant terrasse (20. March 2017)

I can’t remember when was the last time I’ve had lunch at the terrasse but I remember that it is a long time ago since I had to queue to get assigned to my table. I had booked a table for 12:00 and when I entered the restaurant there was a line of about 10 […]

Decent Japanese lunch but not out of the ordinary: Restaurant Ginger (17. March 2017)

Decent Japanese lunch but not out of the ordinary: Restaurant Ginger (17. March 2017)

When you have lunch at the Ginger, you get the complementary “Edamame” to start and to make the feeling of waiting pass by quicker. But once you’ve placed your order … … the “miso soup” arrives rather quickly and is served with a rather ‘ugly’ plastic spoon. The soup is fine, a bit ‘tasteless’ (in […]

Lunch bargain – if you ask for it: Restaurant Rosaly’s (16. March 2017)

Lunch bargain – if you ask for it: Restaurant Rosaly’s (16. March 2017)

What was quite surprising was the fact that they do have a ‘lunch menu’ as they do not advertise it anywhere but you have to specifically ask them if they have something – and it turns out they do. The “lunch menu” (CHF 27.00) this day was a “spinach cream soup” which was fine in […]

Themed restaurant – but also a place not to visit: Restaurant Texas Steakhouse (15. March 2017)

Themed restaurant – but also a place not to visit: Restaurant Texas Steakhouse (15. March 2017)

Usually, the sum of online reviews is not that far off the truth – however, this time, it was quite untrue. The Restaurant Texas Steakhouse Farbhof has been rebranded only recently which is why I did not ‘realize’ what location it was. But let’s start one after the other – I went for the “tombstone […]
