Amazing drink experience with nice view onto the city: King Cole Bar @ The St. Regis Mexico City (25. August 2018)

About 16 months ago I was in the King Cole Bar in The St. Regis Mexico City and wasn’t entirely satisfied with my drink experience back then. After I had published the review, Paulina, the Director of Marketing and Public Relations reached out to me in July 2017, asking me to give the place another […]

Great experience in the outskirts of Mexico City: Restaurant Sud 777 (25. August 2018)

The Restaurant Sud 777 was on my list for quite a while and last time when I’ve been to Mexico I had a booking but somehow didn’t manage to pay it a visit. This time, it worked. It is, admittedly, located in a quite remote part of Mexico City and a good 45 minutes car […]

Lovely local food in one of the markets: Comedor Candita @ Mercado de 20 Noviembre (24. August 2018)

Lovely local food in one of the markets: Comedor Candita @ Mercado de 20 Noviembre (24. August 2018)

What I like about Mexico is their local markets – where you can find all kinds of foods. I have read a couple of times about a “Tlayuda” and had no clue what kind of dish this was. So, it was time to get one. In the Mercado de 20 Noviembre (which, according to the […]

Lovely ice cream truck in the middle of nowhere: Manolo Nieves (24. August 2018)

Lovely ice cream truck in the middle of nowhere: Manolo Nieves (24. August 2018)

There is one tourist bus in Oaxaca (as the place isn’t that large) and it costs 100 MXN. Worth taking (ideally the first day) as it provides you with a good overview over the city and its main attractions. On the tour, there is a short stop at some church and place (I can’t recall […]

Lovely experience with thought through design: Restaurant Pitiona Cocina de Autor (23. August 2018)

Lovely experience with thought through design: Restaurant Pitiona Cocina de Autor (23. August 2018)

The Pitiona Cocina de Autor was another recommendation from the book ‘Where Chefs Eat‘. And yet another really good one. I went for the “Quico” (110 MXN) – a mezcal drink – as an aperitivo and I must say, I will never be a big fan of mezcal. It has its own particular taste which […]

Definitely a tourist trap, yet not so bad all in all: Restaurant Rancho Zapata (23. August 2018)

Definitely a tourist trap, yet not so bad all in all: Restaurant Rancho Zapata (23. August 2018)

Given I did a full day trip first to Monte Albán and then to Mitla (which is like 50 kilometers on the other side of Oaxaca), it was just time to get some food around 2pm that day. So, I ended up in the Rancho Zapata which the driver had recommended to me. As always, […]

Lovely hotel with decent complimentary breakfast: Restaurant La Casa de Sierra Azul (23. Augus 2018)

Given there is no Starwood hotel in Oaxaca, I had to find something else, and I did. The Hotel La Casa de Sierra Azul is actually an absolutely lovely place with friendly staff just making you feel comfortable there. And in the price of approximately CHF 100 per night, there is also “American breakfast” included. […]

Yet another great find by ‘Where Chefs Eat’: Restaurant Origen (22. August 2018)

Yet another great find by ‘Where Chefs Eat’: Restaurant Origen (22. August 2018)

The Origen is another find from the book ‘Where Chefs Eat‘. And it is also a place definitely worth visiting. As a starter, you are served “tostatadas de maíz blanco y negro’ with “chile canario”. Not sure what canario exactly is but in any case, the chili is rather spicy. I decided to go for […]
