Half-empty restaurant with a good COVID-19 concept: Restaurant Aura (27. May 2020)

Even two weeks after the lock-down had been lifted, restaurants are still half empty, if at all. The Aura has set the tables far apart to ensure the compliance with the distance requirements. And you would expect the place to be entirely full, given there are only few spaces but quite the opposite is true […]

The first restaurant visit after two months during COVID-19 times: Restaurant MASI Wine Bar (14. May 2020)

The first restaurant visit after two months during COVID-19 times: Restaurant MASI Wine Bar (14. May 2020)

It is kind of surreal when you walk into a restaurant after more than two months of not eating out. However, in the end, things aren’t so different to how they were before. Sure, there are certain precautionary measures taken like yellow lines on the floor so you keep your distance, the waiter wearing gloves, […]

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

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)

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. […]

Great business lunch offering in a nice setting: Restaurant Smith and de Luma (21. February 2020)

Since I’ve recently been to the Smith and de Luma for an event (MEAT Academy), I decided to give it a try again for a regular lunch. And I must say that it is a place I can absolutely recommend. They offer a lunch menu for CHF 32.00 starting with a “cauliflower soup” which was […]

Great location but overpriced omelets: Restaurant Bohemia (20. February 2020)

Great location but overpriced omelets: Restaurant Bohemia (20. February 2020)

Breakfast for champions is what you get at the Bohemia – but for Swiss prices! I went for the “Havanna omelet (chorizo, tomato cubes, cheddar, sour cream, home-made bread)” (CHF 22.00) which was quite a large omelet and which was also rather tasty all in all. However, CHF 22.00 for an omelet (I mean, it’s […]

Overrated but still decent: Restaurant Gaijin Izakaya (19. February 2020)

Overrated but still decent: Restaurant Gaijin Izakaya (19. February 2020)

Recent reviews of the Gaijin Izakaya hyped the place quite a bit. While I personally consider it nice and good, it isn’t as great as it seemed (when reading other reviews). The place is super full so booking in advance is a must. Once you’ve secured a table, make sure to not bring much as […]

An absolutely well-orchestrated business lunch offering: Restaurant Coco Grill & Bar (19. February 2020)

An absolutely well-orchestrated business lunch offering: Restaurant Coco Grill & Bar (19. February 2020)

It is a while ago since I’ve been to Coco’s for lunch but I must say that they offer a decent business lunch menu (CHF 38.50). I like the concept that they offer the menu only orally and you don’t get a huge variety of different dishes as the selection is small but accordingly good […]
