Hi loves and fellow foodies

I’ve been MIA for the last couple of months but I’m ready for my revival.

It has been a beautiful past weekend in Zurich with lovely people and a weather so perfect you could almost think we’re somewhere more south. There is a thing about this city I live in. It happens not to be my favorite city in the world, to express it mildly. But Zurich gets very wonderful in summer (that’s those 7 days a year when the sun is shining) and this weekend was especially astonishing since we celebrated the 3rd Street Food Festival and the weather couldn’t have been better for this event.

With over 100 food stands it was a true rah-rah rally but also bittersweet. Imagine yourself standing there, amidst this crowd, trying to decide what to eat when all you really wanna do is stick your face in everything you see.

But I pulled myself together and went for a “Surf & Turf Burger” and decided to rather turf than surf.  Call me a wimp but I didn’t wanna take the risk and have seafood at a Street Food Festival, therefore I feel super healthy now so thanks to my sanity.

The burger went amazing with some “Dutch Fries” from another stand and we finished the night with some “Churros”.

This festival is some piece of news in this sometimes gloomy city and I can’t wait for the next one!

Have a beautiful day.

Hi lovlies

This wasn’t my first time at Rivabella Restaurant and I loved it since the very first time I came here. The location in West Hollywood is super amazing (right above Sunset Strip and minutes away from Bootsy Bellows Nightclub where you can go rub shoulders with Ed Westwick real quick after dinner).

What really makes this place so unique is the interior decoration. It’s an Italian restaurant with a Tuscan flair, beautiful trees and lots of green surroundings inside. You’ll feel like sitting in an conservatory at your house in Italy. This must be how George Clooney feels. I get it now, George.

The Antipasti were amazing and really did it more for me than the Entrees. I love it here best over lunch when you can see all the details of the Restaurant. I wanna be honest, I love coming to Rivabella not so much for the food but for the atmosphere because it gives you such a calm and peaceful feeling. I’d call it “Girl meets Provence”, if that makes any sense!

Have a beautiful day! xx

Hi loves

I’ve seen so many celebs walk into this place so I wanted to see for myself how good it really is and if it’s worth the hype. So let me tell you all, the hype is real! It’s a rather small Cafe and not too crowded plus you’ll get a table right away. It’s such a lovely and charming place to just sit and have breakfast or coffee or to go to town on whatever you want (the menu has quite the impressive selection!). We loved it a lot so we kept coming back.

The food is GREAT and the prices are very appropriate. I really recommend it guys. Oh and does anyone remember Jasper from “The Holiday”? Yeah no that’s what I thought, but we saw him here so that makes this place kinda officially cool because the movie is awesome!

Have a beautiful day. X

Ahi Tuna Tartar
Sushi grade tuna with avocado and kimchee lime sauce. And it all comes with artisane sesame chips. The interesting part is this berry though. You eat it afterwards, it neutralizes the taste of fish. I really don’t know the name of this berry, so please let me know if you do!

I’m so late with this post but still it needs to happen and it really doesn’t matter that Miami was 2 months ago, I’m still dreaming about it.

I’m dedicating todays post to another first for me in Miami. Firstly, I’ve had the second best tuna tartar in my life at this place! (The best was in Mallorca and I won’t ever forget it because you just can not outdo it, I dare you.)

Bâoli officially made it on my favorite restaurant list and that’s no easy accomplishment. If there’s anything I’m good at, it’s all things food. This one truly deserves a place on my list. Not only is the food delicious but it’s just a stunning restaurant and establishment in general. You can sit outside and feel like you’re in a petite jungle and I really enjoyed this piece of faux nature 🙂

Good morning everyone!

It sure is a good morning when you start it off at News Cafe in Miami. I’ve been here for the first time this year so there’s not so much to say yet, but still a lot on my heart. We thought we were the only ones with the great hint to come here but once we got there, we realised it’s pretty popular! It was so busy and we still got a table right away. Those are the kind of places I like. Don’t let me wait for my food, I do not appreciate it.

We had so much food just because I really needed to try as much as I could in one day (and it was our last day, sigh).

I will make this my “everyday-miami-breakfast-place”. I had to order everything I could because it all sounded so delicious. But even my stomach has its limits, so eventually I stopped.

Resumed: GREAT food, beautiful ocean view, nice staff and lovely establishment in general.

Where do I start? Eggs Benedict with Ham and Tomato and Potato cubes, Quiche Lorraine with a Caesar Salad, side of Sausages (when I see them on a menu, I order them, invariably and everywhere, nothing can stop me) and Cajun Fries. YUM EVERYTHING! I miss this quiche, so much. So so good!

Hi my lovelies

I know it’s been a while but I’m back!! And I’m back with really good stuff for you guys. I was in Miami for the last week of february and tried some new amazing restaurants. I need to share all the delight with you but for today I’m starting off with everything delicious we had at ZUMA. This restaurant killed it, it was unreal I’m telling you. It’s a style of modern japanese cuisine but not like everything you’ve had before. It’s not really a silent place to have a romantic first dinner since it’s pretty vibrant and noisy (exactly the way I like it) but perfect for dinner with friends. Located on 270 Biscayne Blvd Way, Miami, FL 33131 (located in the EPIC hotel), this place is a MUST. So whenever you get the chance to go, you won’t be sorry.

Yuzu key lime pie, with sesame coconut tuile. SO GOOD. I love everything Lime-ey so this was amazing.

The mind is everything. What you think, you become. – Buddha

With this quote I want to share a very quick story about how we found a beautiful bar in London – The Buddha Bar! We went for dinner at Mr. Chows and it was god’s will to have that bar right next to the restaurant.  Ahh what an experience. A beautifully decorated place with cocktails to die. Sweet cocktails, spicy cocktails, salty cocktails, happy cocktails, everything your addicted body and heart desires. We ended up there almost every night.

Foto(20)I had the Kiwi and Cucumber which has kiwi and cucumber obviously, with citrus vodka and elderflower syrup. It was sweet, diabetic sweet, but good.
