Atmospheric place with luscious dishes: Restaurant Catch (1. February 2018)

When you are starving because your flight is late and your meeting takes 3 hours longer than originally intended so you end up eating pretty much nothing the whole day, everything tastes amazing. But even after the first immediate hunger was satisfied, things still tasted great. The “Korean fried chicken bao (spicy coleslaw, pistachio), 2 […]

Interesting local Turkish dishes: Restaurant Köşebaşı (30. January 2018)

Interesting local Turkish dishes: Restaurant Köşebaşı (30. January 2018)

While I was not persuaded about the humus the last time I was at Köşebaşı in November but as I had forgotten, I still ordered it again. And well, the humus was still as dense as the last time. Not really to my liking. However, the “Pastirmali Humus (home-made humus topped with olive oil and […]

Great dishes but definitely not a vinoteca: Restaurant La Vinoteca Barcelona (29. January 2018)

Great dishes but definitely not a vinoteca: Restaurant La Vinoteca Barcelona (29. January 2018)

If a restaurant calls itself ‘Vinoteca’ I expect a broad variety of different wines to pick from. If you also expect that, then don’t go here as the wine selection is rather disappointing (as in small) and the quality of the wines is also not the greatest. You can find a lot of wines on […]

Surprisingly good dishes where you would not expect it: Restaurant Wagamama @ Bahrain City Centre (28. January 2018)

I had originally ordered the edamame with chili and salt but got the regular ones instead. The “edamame (steamed edamame beans with salt)” (2.750 BHD) were good and the salt was not applied in large amounts at it often is. However, you have to be a bit patient before you actually get something to eat. […]

Traditional little restaurant with good lunch deals: Restaurant Brasserie Seefeld (24. January 2018)

Traditional little restaurant with good lunch deals: Restaurant Brasserie Seefeld (24. January 2018)

While I have paid a visit to a variety of restaurants in the Seefeld, the Brasserie Seefeld wasn’t among them so far. They have quite a decent lunch offer – also in terms of price. I didn’t go for the set menu but still got the daily soup served, a “crema sedano” which was rich […]

Absolutely unacceptable – waiter smoking every 20 minutes: Restaurant La Bottega di Mario (23. January 2018)

Absolutely unacceptable – waiter smoking every 20 minutes: Restaurant La Bottega di Mario (23. January 2018)

The La Bottega di Mario looked so promising when entering. I mean, they had some issues with the reservation but luckily, a table was still free. But the place is very atmospheric and comes close to what you would expect from a typical Italian place. We went for the “Tagliere di affetati misti (da comporre […]

Not my favourite in-mall restaurant anymore: Restaurant The Butcher Shop & Grill (22. January 2018)

Not my favourite in-mall restaurant anymore: Restaurant The Butcher Shop & Grill (22. January 2018)

This visit of The Butcher left the impression that the chef has changed. While in previous visits I really had the feeling that they do a great job, I was not so persuaded this time. The “Traditional Greek salad (served with arugula, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, bell pepper, onion, kalamata olives, watermelon and feta cheese)” (3.900 […]

Incredibly bad service – never again! Restaurant Paul’s (21. January 2018)

Incredibly bad service – never again! Restaurant Paul’s (21. January 2018)

Bad service is really just the first name here, horrible service is the whole thing! It was the Saudi vacation so the place was flooded unlike normally. But after we took our seats, it took them 5 minutes to bring the menu. Then, after we had placed the order, it took them another 10 minutes […]
