Pre-Christmas cheesy cheese experience: Chalet au Lac @ Baur au Lac (23. December 2017)

Each year, the Hotel Baur au Lac erects a small wooden house in their beautiful garden called ‘Chalet au Lac’ and it does not only look very pretty, it is also quite comfortable inside. You get a menu for CHF 115.00 which includes a starter, main and a dessert although the concept is rather freely […]

Close to perfect service but not the best beef filet: Restaurant Parkhuus @ Park Hyatt (22. December 2017)

Close to perfect service but not the best beef filet: Restaurant Parkhuus @ Park Hyatt (22. December 2017)

The Parkhuus has been mentioned to me as one of these places where you get great beef fillet, so I obviously had to try exactly that. But before we go into the the analysis of the beef fillet, a couple of words about the arrival. You’re greated once you walk into the restaurant and straight […]

A true value-add to the restaurant scene in Zurich: Restaurant Smith and de Luma (24. November 2017)

The newsletter of Luma is something I’m receiving already for quite a while and I had occasionally tried their meat in other restaurants but actually never made it to their own restaurant so far. And finally it was time to pay a visit to them – and let me tell you, it is something you […]

Sound dishes as always with improved service: Restaurant Brasserie Freilager (15. November 2017)

When you are in the city you live and you only get to spend approximately 12 hours in your country, then it is definitely the moment to eat somewhere really close to where you live. And the Restaurant Brasserie Freilager is exactly that place. We went for dinner around 6:30pm which was super early as […]

Good and swift lunch offering: Restaurant MASI Wine Bar (11. October 2017)

Good and swift lunch offering: Restaurant MASI Wine Bar (11. October 2017)

The “small mixed salad” (CHF 6.00) was decent as it was not the ordinary assembly of green leaf salad but spiked a bit with carrots. However, as the salad was displayed on the menu as part of the ‘lunch menu’, I consider CHF 6.00 rather expensive for a lunch salad. I went for the “Scaloppina […]

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)

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 […]
