Delicious dishes for lunch – booking recommended: Restaurant Werk 8 (3. April 2018)

The Werk8 offers only a small lunch menu so I was rather surprised to actually find a couple of decent offerings for someone who is forced to not enjoy meat. The “potato soup” (CHF 11.00) was good but a much larger portion than originally stated. The “salad bowl (mixed leaf salad with feat, cucumber, tomatoes […]

Great lunch offering for a swift lunch: Restaurant Mum’s Kitchen Vietnamese Food (26. March 2018)

Sometimes it is good if you rely on someone else conducting research where to go for lunch as you probably would never have walked into the restaurant by passing by. The Mum’s Kitchen Vietnamese Food is one of these candidates. The lunch offering was simple yet delicious. I went for the “red curry with duck” […]

Great salad, average burger for lunch: Restaurant L’Esquina (21. March 2018)

After entering, I was a bit skeptical to what degree this was going to be good. But after the “menu salad” (CHF 5.50) was served, I was positively surprised. Given it was not only leaf salad but had cucumbers and tomatoes in it making it quite a tasty start for a very fair price. The […]

Lovely Cordon Bleu but the service is not entirely up to the task: Restaurant Gifthüttli (4. September 2017)

Lovely Cordon Bleu but the service is not entirely up to the task: Restaurant Gifthüttli (4. September 2017)

Frankly, the name of the restaurant is a bit disturbing at first, given it is called “poison hut”. However, in Swiss German it doesn’t sound as scary as it sounds in English. It is famous for its Cordon Bleus, so it was absolutely logical that I went for their flagship Cordon Bleu called “Cordon Bleu […]

26. December 2015: Restaurant Krafft

To offer a surprise menu (CHF 65.00) is actually quite a good idea. At least it is something I haven’t seen so often yet. The first course was “seabass on leek with mushrooms and star anise”. The mushrooms and leek bed served as a good basis for the sea bass which was good but a […]

15. June 2013: Pret A Diner by Tim Raue @Elisabethenkirche

I have been to a Pret A Diner event in Munich before (Pret A Diner by Adam Byatt) and as that experience was great, I had high expectations – unfortunately, they were not fully met. The dining took place in the Elisabethen Church in Basle and when you enter, you are blown away because the […]

25. May 2013: Grand Chapitre du Printemps – Grand Dîner de Gala @Kongresscenter Basel

The “salmon smoked with cherry wood served with lemon purée and herb salad” was incredibly tender so the fork basically slid through it without you putting any effort into parting it. It was armoatic, rich and the combination with the lemon purée was very subtle and smooth. The “Furore bianco DOC, 2011, Marisa Cuomo, Costa […]

3. March 2012: Restaurant blindekuh basel

Definitely a great experience – if you dine at the blindekuh your senses open up and become very intense – why? You do not see anything at all. The whole dining experience takes place in complete darkness. You have to book in advance as the place is booked out pretty early, especially on weekends. When […]
