A menu made of preserved, pickled and cured dishes: SHELF LIFE by Tastelab (5. October 2017)

The concept of SHELF LIFE was basically that you would get everything which can get pickled or somehow else conserved – salted, pickled, or any other form of it. There was a selection of eleven different courses you could pick from – totally six different ones which was part of the menu for CHF 95.00. […]

Rather disappointing lunch experience: Restaurant Molino Select (3. October 2017)

Rather disappointing lunch experience: Restaurant Molino Select (3. October 2017)

I’m not sure what to think about the Restaurant Molino Select – on the one hand side you get a decent meal for lunch but on the other hand side the service isn’t really satisfying. I went for the “Zuppa al Pomodoro” (CHF 10.50) as a starter which was decent – quite a large portion […]

Outstanding lunch offering: Restaurant Toscano im Niederdorf (2. October 2017)

Although I have tried 400+ restaurants in Zurich, I keep stumbling across new ones, or rather ones I haven’t tried yet. And the Toscano is definitely one of them – and I was quite positively surprised by their lunch offering (CHF 42.00). The starter was “pomodorini e burrata” which was surprisingly good. After having tried […]

Exquisite lunch offering with passionate service: Ristorante d’Aurora – Onkel Tom’s Hütte (28. September 2017)

The “insalata di pomodori piccadilly e avocado” (CHF 16.50) looked a bit too healthy, a bit too tiny to me. At least at first. But it turned out that the dish was not only absolutely mouth-watering but also a decent portion. The combination of the very aromatic tomatoes combined with the avocado really made for […]

A lovely Italian place – not where you’d expect it: Restaurant Osteria Leonardo (27. September 2017)

A lovely Italian place – not where you’d expect it: Restaurant Osteria Leonardo (27. September 2017)

Despite having been in the area already quite a couple of times, I never actually noticed the Osteria Leonardo but I should have. The place sounded somewhat like a chain to me but it turns out, it isn’t. It is actually a super decent Italian restaurant – more a place where you would get cold […]

Sound lunch offering but lacking spices: Restaurant Il Gentile (27. September 2017)

Sound lunch offering but lacking spices: Restaurant Il Gentile (27. September 2017)

The “celery leek cream soup” which was part of the lunch menu is overall quite decent but lacks spices. There is basically no salt and/or pepper in the soup making it rather dull. The flavours of the ingredients don’t really compensate for the lack of salt. While the “pork cordon bleu stuffed with ham, chorizo, […]

Decent shisha bar in central Zurich: Leeward Shisha Bar (26. September 2017)

Decent shisha bar in central Zurich: Leeward Shisha Bar (26. September 2017)

The Leeward Shisha Bar is the second shisha bar I’ve paid a visit to in the past couple of weeks – and it is actually quite fine too. I mean, it remains a shisha bar so it isn’t a fancy place but it is comfortable, rather large, and the shisa’s (e.g. “apple shisha”, CHF 25.00) […]

A real Italian experience in terms of food and noisiness: Restaurant La Baracca (26. September 2017)

It is about three years ago since I’ve visited the La Baracca – and I have quite positive memories about it. Therefore, it was time to pay it a visit again and to try out what they had on the menu. We started with “Tris di Bruschette della Casa con Borratina Affumicata e Zucca (Pate […]
