Perfect to take in the last sun before winter comes: The George Terrace @ Sandeman (6. November 2021)

There is a variety of different small restaurants on the Vila Nova de Gaia side of the Duoro river – and the “The George” at Sandeman is nothing special but somewhat nice. We went for some little nibbles like the “four units of bacalao with garlic dip” (EUR 8.50), “a cheese and bread platter” (EUR […]

A nice experience but in some areas not on Michelin star level yet: Restaurant DOP (5. November 2021)

A nice experience but in some areas not on Michelin star level yet: Restaurant DOP (5. November 2021)

I was super curious to experience the DOP since it has been recommended on the Guide Michelin app and I thought giving it a try wouldn’t be so wrong. Not so sure though. Some of us picked the tasting menu called “Menu Memória” (EUR 100.00) which started with two small amuse bouches which were lovely […]

A local food joint and nothing more: Restaurant Flor de Bragança (Casa Bragança) (5. November 2021)

A local food joint and nothing more: Restaurant Flor de Bragança (Casa Bragança) (5. November 2021)

Once we had arrived in Porto, it was right away time for dinner and since the place had been recommended, we thought we should give it a shot. However, it turns out that sometimes going for recommendations without cross checking them, isn’t really the best of all ideas. Well, the place was packed for sure […]

Always great for a nice platter of Robespierre: Restaurant Bederhof (4. November 2021)

Always great for a nice platter of Robespierre: Restaurant Bederhof (4. November 2021)

The Bederhof is always a great location for a nice traditional dinner. They offered a special this evening, a “pheasant terrine with toast and chutney” (CHF 15.50) which was definitely nice, especially with the chutney and the pickled fruit. The toast which was served with it worked perfectly together with the rest. What I always […]

Absolutely amazing Asian cuisine: Restaurant Vi Ngon (3. November 2021)

While I have figured that for Cologne, there is no 100% guarantee that the rating on Google is actually matching expectations these days, the Vi Ngon was a find where the Google rating is very much justified. The place is nice but simple yet spacious. The “edamame (Japanese beans, steamed, with sea salt)” (EUR 4.90) […]

A surprisingly delicious experience but with a bit slow service: Restaurant La Fonda (2. November 2021)

The La Fonda is located in an area which has obviously not been affected by the bombings of the second world war as the buildings seem to be ancient and actually super nice to look at. Once you’ve found the entry to the restaurant which is located not in the main street but in the […]

Always a solid option for breakfast: Restaurant Coelln @ The Westin Grand Berlin (2. November 2021)

It’s quite a while ago since I’ve last had breakfast at the Coelln in The Westin Grand Berlin but I’m happy I had the chance to enjoy it today again. The selection of the breakfast buffet is actually super lovely ranging from quite a few types of bread … … to some sweets and a […]
