An absolute must when you visit Madrid: El Mercado de San Miguel (10. May 2018)

Every time I am coming to Madrid, I just have to pay the El Mercado de San Miguel a visit as it is one of these places you just want to go back to. They have so many lovely foods and you just want to try them all. Starting with the “fried sardines” (EUR 15.00) […]

Decent lunch buffet in a take away place: Restaurant Neuhaus (9. May 2018)

Decent lunch buffet in a take away place: Restaurant Neuhaus (9. May 2018)

When I first saw the place, I was super surprised and not necessarily in a positive way as it looked like a pure take-away joint. Turns out, that it is actually a proper restaurant with a very decent lunch buffet selection for CHF 22.90. Starting with a nice variety of ‘salad’ … … a couple […]

Surprisingly lovely breakfast with exquisite service: The Trianon @ The Park Tower Hotel Knightsbridge, A Luxury Collection (7. May 2018)

Surprisingly lovely breakfast with exquisite service: The Trianon @ The Park Tower Hotel Knightsbridge, A Luxury Collection (7. May 2018)

The breakfast offer at The Trianon looks at first a bit disappointing as the corner where the dishes are displayed looks rather dull and small. However, when you spend a few minutes there to check what they actually offer, it is suddenly all not so bad anymore. The selection ranges from all kinds of warm […]

The typical French service – unfriendly as hell: Restaurant Le Village Ronsard (6. May 2018)

The typical French service – unfriendly as hell: Restaurant Le Village Ronsard (6. May 2018)

To finish off the day, we decided to try another restaurant recommended in ‘Where Chefs Eat‘ but unfortunately, the ones close were either closed or even closed for good. So, we ended up in a relatively touristic place with surprisingly many locals. I went for the “Gratinée à l’oignon” (EUR 9.90) which was a typical […]

First time I’ve tried frog legs: Restaurant Aux Lyonnais (5. May 2018)

First time I’ve tried frog legs: Restaurant Aux Lyonnais (5. May 2018)

My absolutely favourite book when travelling is ‘Where Chefs Eat‘ which is basically the perfect tourist guide for any city which is mentioned in there. Especially, when you are considering visiting the restaurants mentioned in there as they are absolutely lovely and recommended by Michelin starred chefs (but the restaurants recommended are not necessarily Michelin […]

Average breakfast with a nice little balcony: Club Lounge @ Le Méridien Étoile (5. May 2018)

Average breakfast with a nice little balcony: Club Lounge @ Le Méridien Étoile (5. May 2018)

The Club Lounge in the Le Méridien Étoile is definitely nothing special but at least it offers quite a decent breakfast menu. Starting with some elements of salad like cucumbers, tomatoes and actual salad as well as about four different types of cold cuts … … freshly pressed juices … … different types of bread […]

One of the reasons why you would want to visit Paris: Wine Bar L’Ivress Sentier (4. May 2018)

It is more than 7 years ago since I have been to Paris and somehow I have never been able to get to like the city properly. This evening though managed to turn it around a bit. The “large apéro plate” with a variety of cheeses, paté, tomatoes, cornichons, cold cuts, butter and honey … […]

Lovely place for meat with a funny name: Restaurant AuGust (3. May 2018)

I haven’t heard about the AuGust before and was at first a bit surprised when my friend sent me the name of the place as it looked like a typo. But it isn’t a typo. It’s the actual name of the restaurant. However, the place is serving a lovely variety of different meat dishes like […]
