Stressful when you have to be done by 7pm, but with excellent service: Chalet au Lac @ Baur au Lac (17. December 2020)

Three years ago, I had the pleasure to visit the Chalet au Lac already once and I have fond memories of it. Despite the fact that restaurants had to close at 7pm, I was able to pay this place a brief visit (and it’s rather stressful to do so, to be honest) but luckily, it […]

Talk about disappointed expectations when it comes to Peruvian food: Restaurant Püente (8. December 2020)

When I read that there is a second Peruvian restaurant which is supposed to be serving great food in Zurich, I was excited! And to be fair, at first it looked all very promising. The place is small, spacious, has an open kitchen and the staff is super friendly. Once you’ve ordered your food, it […]

Truffle explosion: A private dining experience at Richard Kägi’s private residence (3. December 2020)

Most Swiss people have probably heard of Richard Kägi (http://www.richardkaegi.ch) who acts as a food scout for Globus. But what most people don’t know is that he also hosts private dining events at his residence from time to time. While this was the first time for me to attend, it definitely won’t be the last […]

A unique and typical French bistro experience: Restaurant Le Relais de l’Entrecôte (1. December 2020)

Let’s say, I’m generally speaking not the biggest fan of French cuisine but what they offer at the Le Relais de l’Entrecôte is definitely something which is quite unique to Zurich. There is just one thing on the menu. You started with a “mixed salad” with French dressing which is simple but good. And then […]

A mouth-watering experience combining Asian with Swiss flavors: Restaurant Eden Kitchen & Bar (25. November 2020)

While the La Muña was actually the place which was on my agenda to finally try out, it was closed, so I decided to give the downstairs restaurant “Eden Kitchen & Bar” a try. And luckily they still had availability plus offered a short excerpt of the upstairs La Muña menu. I went for the […]

Pulled pork burger which makes you salivate: Restaurant Palavrion (25. November 2020)

Somehow I always have the Palavrion in mind as a place of beef. And every time I’m there, I’m seeing so many other dishes which aren’t really beef related. However, that doesn’t mean they’re any bad. The “green pulled pork burger (pork meat prepared in the apple wood smoker, coleslaw, apple, iceberg lettuce, mayo, BBQ […]

Lovely game experience in Zurich: Restaurant Brasserie Freilager (21. November 2020)

Somehow, the Restaurant Freilager remains a safe bet. The place is lovely (and was fully booked that evening) the food offer is always quite exquisite. The “boar tortellini (chestnuts, rosemary butter, Parmesan)” (CHF 22.00) were quite great as a starter. The boar is aromatic and this makes the whole experience mouth-watering. The “vension with red […]

Perfect for a meaty lunch experience: Restaurant Hatecke & Ustaria (19. November 2020)

Somehow I only knew the Hatecke as a butchery and not really as a restaurant but it turns out that it is actually quite nice for lunch. Once you’re seated – booking in advance highly recommended – you get a few cold cuts while picking what you want to eat from the menu. Given we […]
