If you want to try what Flynn McGarry has to offer, visit his ‘Gem’: Excellence Gourmetfestival with Flynn McGarry (23. October 2021)

I was super excited when I heard about Flynn McGarry coming to Europe to cook in one of the Excellence Gourmetfestival tours since I’ve visited the young chef in June 2019 in his New York restaurant ‘Gem’ and while there was some downside in terms of experience creating, he definitely had a few mouth-watering dishes […]

Good dishes but decreasing service quality over time: Restaurant Zunft zum Schlüssel (8. Dezember 2019)

Good dishes but decreasing service quality over time: Restaurant Zunft zum Schlüssel (8. Dezember 2019)

When you enter the Zunft zum Schlüssel you can find kind of two restaurants. The bistro and the actual restaurant. Tonight I had dinner at the bistro which offers a smaller menu. I went for the “soup of the day” which was a “saffron soup with king prawns” (CHF 12.00). The soup is prepared in […]

Great lunch bargain with super friendly service: Restaurant Poseidon (21. November 2018)

I have passed the Restaurant Poseidon a couple of times and so far it always looked a bit like a take away but there is actually a proper restaurant at the back of the entrance which is quite spacious. The lunch bargain is actually amazing. For only CHF 23.50 you get a “leek soup” as […]

Hidden yet very visible but worth visiting: South Africa Grill @ Markthalle (2. October 2018)

I spent a couple of weeks in Basel for work, yet I somehow never heard about the Markthalle – and I have driven by quite a couple of times. However, the concept is amazing – you find a bunch of food stands in the Markthalle ranging from Asian to European to South American to African […]

You get à discretion for an amazing price: Restaurant Knock on Wood Vietnamese Fusion Cuisine (19. September 2018)

The Restaurant Knock on Wood Vietnamese Fusion Cuisine offers something quite unique you do not find often in Switzerland – cuisine à discretion. The “meat menu” (CHF 17.00) … … you can take seafood as well as chicken or beef as a main course and combine it with a selection of vegetables, rice or glass […]

Incredibly bad service: Gourmet Bar @ Novotel City Basel (2. August 2018)

Incredibly bad service: Gourmet Bar @ Novotel City Basel (2. August 2018)

Given I was short on time, I decided to eat in the hotel I was staying and I went for the “mixed Swiss gourmet plate” (CHF 16.00) as a starter. The selection of cold cuts and cheeses was actually quite fine, however, there was one major downside to it all. It took them a solid […]

When half of the food isn’t on the menu anymore: Restaurant Osteria Little Italy (5. December 2018)

When half of the food isn’t on the menu anymore: Restaurant Osteria Little Italy (5. December 2018)

The Osteria Little Italy is among the best ranked restaurants in Basel on TripAdvisor. Now frankly, I kind of understand it after enjoying the whole evening, however, when I initially got there, I didn’t quite share that impression. Once I had decided what to eat which was basically veal and burrata, I was informed that […]

Quick lunch but no atmosphere: Restaurant Schwyzerhüsli (23. July 2018)

Sometimes you really just have to get something into your system and be quick about it. The restaurant Schwyzerhüsli looked like such a place. There were only a couple of locals drinking beer so I figured, this must be quick and simple food. And I went for the “fitness plate (chicken with salad)” (CHF 21.50) […]
