Delicious sushi where you wouldn’t expect it: Restaurant Izasa-Nakatani-hompo Yumekaze-hiroba (11. March 2020)

When you visit Nara, respectively the Nara park, you either have to eat something before you go there or you should visit the Izasa-Nakatani-hompo Yumekaze-hiroba restaurant. There are a few restaurants around but if you look at the reviews, none of them looked like I would feel comfortable visiting any of them. The Izasa-Nakatani-hompo Yumekaze-hiroba […]

A Japanese restobar experience with a twist: Restaurant Utogaria (10. March 2020)

There are so many restaurants in Osaka, it’s really not easy to find one which stands out but the Utogaria seems to be a safe address for all tourists. When we got there, there were already other foreigners sitting at the long bar and eating their dinner. We went for “deep fried dumplings” (450 Yen) […]

A Japanese version of French cuisine: Restaurant À La Civette (10. March 2020)

When you slept in and are up too late to actually get the breakfast at the hotel and you just randomly try to find a place which offers food with an English menu, then you might be unlucky in the neighborhood of Konmachi. After some time, I stumbled upon the À la Civette which was […]

An udon noodle restaurant full with locals: Restaurant Tsurutontan Soemoncho (9. March 2020)

Dotonburi is the neighborhood in Osaka which is hip and there are a lot of food stands and restaurants. The Tsurutontan Seomoncho was a restaurant recommended for Udon noodles and after walking 15+ kilometers that day already, I was happy it was open at 3pm. I started with “Tuna Sushi Rolls with truffle mayonnaise” (580 […]

Japanese breakfast – Udon noodles: Restaurant Osaox @ Moxy Osaka Honmachi (9. March 2020)

The breakfast at the Restaurant Osaox which is basically the counter around the reception of the Moxy is surprisingly better than expected. There is a noodle station where they serve … … “Udon noodle bowls” which you can finish with your own toppings making it a dish to start the day according to your liking! […]

First local Japanese food experience – sukiyaki: Restaurant Hokuto Gems Namba (8. March 2020)

First local Japanese food experience – sukiyaki: Restaurant Hokuto Gems Namba (8. March 2020)

It’s apparently not always entirely easy to find the good places to eat when you’re in Japan. The Hokuto Gems Namba for example is located in a building which is full of restaurants but isn’t much advertised from the outside. So, you kind of have to know that there is something like a restaurant building. […]

Excellent service experience on SWISS First flight LX158 ZRH – KIX (7. March 2020)

Due to the Corona Virus the First class cabin was pretty much empty – which allowed one to change seats at will and to experience the whole cabin basically from all possible imaginable angles. Starting with a glass of white wine and a “carrot tartar” which was quite refreshing, I was in a good mood […]

Nice experience but not as great as in previous visits: SWISS First Class Lounge Terminal E (7. March 2020)

I love returning to the SWISS First Class Lounge in the E terminal as it always is the start of a nice adventure. This time, the adventure started with a “Tom Kha Gai (chicken, oyster mushroom, lotus root, water spinach)” which was great in terms of flavor but also had a nice spiciness to it. […]
