Delicious food in a place you’d never walk in but should: Restaurant Baratella (22. March 2017)

Frankly, when passing by the Restaurant Baratella, you would never consider to walk in as it does not look appealing from the outside. However, if you enter (in my case, I entered as the place was recommended to me), you will be quite positively surprised by the interior – it is simple yet neat and […]

Deliciously stuffed veal Cordon Bleu: Restaurant Lokal (22. March 2017)

When I first entered the Lokal in the Lokremise I was taken a bit aback as it looks like a waiting hall of a train station but when you look towards the right side (when you enter), the interior is actually quite nice with lovely small tables and chairs, white tablecloths and it just looks […]

Good cuisine but service with limited attention: Restaurant Candela (13. March 2017)

Good cuisine but service with limited attention: Restaurant Candela (13. March 2017)

I started the evening with an “Indian curry soup (served with mango and a lentil ‘chocolate’)” (CHF 15.50). The soup had an intense taste of curry which was a bit balanced off by the mango. The lentil ‘chocolate’ was a bit too dry for my personal gusto but in combination with the soup it gave […]

Overrated – definitely a slight disappointment: Restaurant Acquarello (8. March 2017)

Overrated – definitely a slight disappointment: Restaurant Acquarello (8. March 2017)

The Acquarello used to be the Restaurant David 38 back when I was studying in St. Gallen – which is quite some years ago. But according to online reviews it is still a very good address so I was obviously quite curious what was expecting me. I went for one of the 9 lunch menu […]

Perfect gnocchi in an authentic Italian restaurant: Restaurant Facincani (2. March 2017)

Perfect gnocchi in an authentic Italian restaurant: Restaurant Facincani (2. March 2017)

I walked by recently the Restaurant Facincani and when it was recommended to me by a colleague it was definitely time to visit. The place is rather simple in its design but generally lovely as it reminds you of a small Italian place – but a bit more spacious like you’re used to it in […]

Surprisingly great Italian pizza with a thick crust: Restaurant Mamma Assunta (22. February 2017)

Surprisingly great Italian pizza with a thick crust: Restaurant Mamma Assunta (22. February 2017)

From the outside, the Mamma Assunta looks like a run-down place where nobody ever walks in – but you should! The place is definitely simple but besides being simple, it is also absolutely crowded for lunch – we were lucky to get the last free table. Everything else was booked in advance! Quite impressive for […]

Surprisingly great Thai dishes in a canteen-like atmosphere: Cha Cha Thai Positive Eating (21. February 2017)

Surprisingly great Thai dishes in a canteen-like atmosphere: Cha Cha Thai Positive Eating (21. February 2017)

Apparentyl, the Cha Cha is a chain but I have never heard of it – however, given geographical proximity and the need to try something new, brought me into Cha Cha. And I was actually quite positively surprised. I went for the “Massaman beef curry (marinated braised Swiss beef in a mildly spicy peanut coconut […]
