Perfect for a decent and swift lunch meal: Restaurant Brasserie Federal (28. July 2020)

What I like about the Brasserie Federal is the fact that they serve hearty Swiss dishes quite quickly and make sure you won’t spend hours and hours waiting for your dish. When I sat down, it took a bit until a waiter showed up, but once he realised I was there, everything went quite quickly. […]

A place where you wouldn’t expect to find a lovely garden: Restaurant Sternen Albisrieden (22. July 2020)

Although I have driven by the Sternen Albisrieden more than 100 times over the past few years, it never crossed my mind to get in there and have a meal. Luckily, a friend of mine suggested having lunch here and it was a surprisingly good decision. I went for the “veal cordon bleu (stuffed with […]

When the kitchen is definitely way too slow: Restaurant terrasse (21. July 2020)

When the kitchen is definitely way too slow: Restaurant terrasse (21. July 2020)

What I like about the terrasse is the fact that you get to sit outside – what I don’t like about the terrasse is the fact that the service is very slow especially during lunchtime which is really quite annoying. I decided to go for the “veal tartar (veal tartare, celery, herb salad, estragon crème […]

An incredibly cheesy cordon bleu worth trying: Restaurant Werdguet (16. July 2020)

An incredibly cheesy cordon bleu worth trying: Restaurant Werdguet (16. July 2020)

The Restaurant Werguet is somehow a hidden gem as it is probably a place I would not have entered by my own but a friend suggested it as a meeting point to play ‘Jass’ (a typical Swiss card game) and it turned out to be a very good location to do exactly that plus have […]

Solid lunch option if you’re into burgers: Restaurant Helvti Dinner Bellevue (9. July 2020)

Solid lunch option if you’re into burgers: Restaurant Helvti Dinner Bellevue (9. July 2020)

It’s about one and a half years ago since I’ve last paid the Helvti Dinner Bellevue a visit and I must say that it’s actually quite a good place for a quick – but admittedly heavy – lunch bite. I went for the “Swiss Burger (finest Swiss Angus beef, Swiss Alpine cheese, Rösti potatoes, cocktail […]

The closest thing to ‘real Mexican food’ you can find in Zurich: Restaurant El Alebrije (8. July 2020)

The closest thing to ‘real Mexican food’ you can find in Zurich: Restaurant El Alebrije (8. July 2020)

The El Alebrije had been recommended to me by a friend – and I must say I was super sceptical as usually ‘Mexican’ food outside of Mexico isn’t really all that great. But I was more than happy to be proven wrong that evening! They have very typical local beverages like “Modelo Especial” (CHF 7.50) […]

When the service is really poor and the food below-average: Restaurant 19 @ Migros Golfpark Otelfingen (7. July 2020)

When the service is really poor and the food below-average: Restaurant 19 @ Migros Golfpark Otelfingen (7. July 2020)

Of course, there are huge differences when you eat at a Migros Golf course restaurant or a private golf course restaurant – however, there are also huge differences at the same place, highly dependent on the waiter who attends you. This evening things were on the very slow side. It might have been due to […]

Good Italian food with decent service: Restaurant Latino (6. July 2020)

It is about three years ago since I’ve last been to the Restaurant Latino and I must say that it remains a nice place – you have to make sure to book in advance though as else you won’t stand a chance to find a table as it was rather busy. Especially for a Monday […]
