Exquisite service and delicious snails and oysters: Chez Antonin @ Les Halles De Lyon (Paul Bocuse) (25. March 2017)

We walked up and down the isles of Les Halles a couple of times until we could decide where to have our lunch stop. And we went for Chez Antonin – a place specialized in French specialties like oysters and we went for “Spéciales le Gall (Bretagne), No. 2 – a Dozen” (EUR 29.00). I […]

Only in France – a place that only sells foie gras: Foie Gras @ Les Halles De Lyon (Paul Bocuse) (25. March 2017)

Only in France – a place that only sells foie gras: Foie Gras @ Les Halles De Lyon (Paul Bocuse) (25. March 2017)

I have seen a lot of different things when it comes to food and places to eat at – there is still a lot to go, rest assured. However, a store which is fully specialized in ‘foie gras’ and sells nothing but that (with a very few exceptions) is something you can only find in […]

A truly local Lyonnaise experience: Comptoir Chez Chabert – Le Petit Chabert (24. March 2017)

A truly local Lyonnaise experience: Comptoir Chez Chabert – Le Petit Chabert (24. March 2017)

If you want to experience a true Lyonnaise food experience, then you should definitely visit one of these small restaurants which are very typical for Lyon. I went for the ‘Le Petit Chabert’ which is a tiny place where you’re seated at tiny tables with tiny chairs and tiny wine glasses. Everything is small and […]

Perfect change for lunch in central Zurich: Restaurant Blockhus (23. March 2017)

Perfect change for lunch in central Zurich: Restaurant Blockhus (23. March 2017)

I have walked by the Restaurant Blockhus a variety of times and it never looked too appealing to me to walk in – but given I was looking for a restaurant I haven’t visited yet which was somewhat in walking distance to my office, the Blockhus popped up and it had a rather decent rating […]

Delicious food in a place you’d never walk in but should: Restaurant Baratella (22. March 2017)

Delicious food in a place you’d never walk in but should: Restaurant Baratella (22. March 2017)

Frankly, when passing by the Restaurant Baratella, you would never consider to walk in as it does not look appealing from the outside. However, if you enter (in my case, I entered as the place was recommended to me), you will be quite positively surprised by the interior – it is simple yet neat and […]

Deliciously stuffed veal Cordon Bleu: Restaurant Lokal (22. March 2017)

When I first entered the Lokal in the Lokremise I was taken a bit aback as it looks like a waiting hall of a train station but when you look towards the right side (when you enter), the interior is actually quite nice with lovely small tables and chairs, white tablecloths and it just looks […]

Okay for a swift lunch – not recommended beyond that: Restaurant Santa Lucia Corso (21. March 2017)

Okay for a swift lunch – not recommended beyond that: Restaurant Santa Lucia Corso (21. March 2017)

The “pea soup with mint” (CHF 8.00) is a simple but good start for lunch – the portion is larger than you would think and the minty taste added to the rather basic pea soup makes for a good combination of flavours. The “Pizza Toscana (spicy salami)” (CHF 22.00) with “additional anchovies” (+ CHF 2.00) […]
