A menu made of preserved, pickled and cured dishes: SHELF LIFE by Tastelab (5. October 2017)

The concept of SHELF LIFE was basically that you would get everything which can get pickled or somehow else conserved – salted, pickled, or any other form of it. There was a selection of eleven different courses you could pick from – totally six different ones which was part of the menu for CHF 95.00. […]

Rather disappointing lunch experience: Restaurant Molino Select (3. October 2017)

I’m not sure what to think about the Restaurant Molino Select – on the one hand side you get a decent meal for lunch but on the other hand side the service isn’t really satisfying. I went for the “Zuppa al Pomodoro” (CHF 10.50) as a starter which was decent – quite a large portion […]

Outstanding lunch offering: Restaurant Toscano im Niederdorf (2. October 2017)

Although I have tried 400+ restaurants in Zurich, I keep stumbling across new ones, or rather ones I haven’t tried yet. And the Toscano is definitely one of them – and I was quite positively surprised by their lunch offering (CHF 42.00). The starter was “pomodorini e burrata” which was surprisingly good. After having tried […]

Exquisite lunch offering with passionate service: Ristorante d’Aurora – Onkel Tom’s Hütte (28. September 2017)

The “insalata di pomodori piccadilly e avocado” (CHF 16.50) looked a bit too healthy, a bit too tiny to me. At least at first. But it turned out that the dish was not only absolutely mouth-watering but also a decent portion. The combination of the very aromatic tomatoes combined with the avocado really made for […]

A lovely Italian place – not where you’d expect it: Restaurant Osteria Leonardo (27. September 2017)

Despite having been in the area already quite a couple of times, I never actually noticed the Osteria Leonardo but I should have. The place sounded somewhat like a chain to me but it turns out, it isn’t. It is actually a super decent Italian restaurant – more a place where you would get cold […]

Decent shisha bar in central Zurich: Leeward Shisha Bar (26. September 2017)

Decent shisha bar in central Zurich: Leeward Shisha Bar (26. September 2017)

The Leeward Shisha Bar is the second shisha bar I’ve paid a visit to in the past couple of weeks – and it is actually quite fine too. I mean, it remains a shisha bar so it isn’t a fancy place but it is comfortable, rather large, and the shisa’s (e.g. “apple shisha”, CHF 25.00) […]

A real Italian experience in terms of food and noisiness: Restaurant La Baracca (26. September 2017)

It is about three years ago since I’ve visited the La Baracca – and I have quite positive memories about it. Therefore, it was time to pay it a visit again and to try out what they had on the menu. We started with “Tris di Bruschette della Casa con Borratina Affumicata e Zucca (Pate […]

When the service goes the extra mile: Restaurant Riviera Enoteca con Cucina (13. September 2017)

So far, I’ve only visited the Riviera Enoteca con Cucina for lunch – but finally I managed to have dinner there. I went for the “Insalata di Spinaci con Chips di Prosciutto di Parma, Pomodori secchi e Ricotta” (CHF 18.50) which was quite lovely – I especially liked the “Prosciutto di Parma chips” as they […]
