Yamas – Mediterranean Bistro Wine Bar

Yamas is the new Greek kid on the Europaallee block armed with Mama’s recipes and a selection of Greek wines making you feel like you’re on some far away Greek island and not Zürich.

Brunch in the Clouds

As I think I’ve mentioned before when our family gets together we like to do it around good food. This time we headed up to Clouds for my Mum’s birthday which is situated at the top of the Prime Tower.

Baracca Zermatt Zürichberg

Whoever said you need to travel to the mountains to get that holiday feeling of sitting in a chalet, by the fireplace with fondue has clearly not heard of the Baracca Zermatt Zürichberg.

The 1947 postoffice cabin from Zermatt now stands high above Zürich and brings us city kids that mountain feeling without having to leave our usual stomping ground. Pretty ideal huh?

YEN’s Sushi

Sushi is something I can never have enough of. Neither can my sister.
So when Harrysding.ch asked me if I’d like to try out a restaurant for Local.ch I didn’t hesitate and knew exactly what cuisine I was going to choose.
And who I was going to take with me.

Restaurant Reithalle

I’m super lucky as I’ve grown up in a family that loves and appreciates good food.
We’ve always had home cooked meals and it was always important for us to eat together.
Now that we’re older and both my brother and I don’t live at home anymore, when we all see each other it’s usually over food. And I love and appreciate that.
Especially that they enjoy testing out new places with me and patiently wait while I take my food photos.
Thank you family! <3

Favourite summer spots in Zürich

This is slightly ironic because as I write this the weather has cooled down and it’s been raining.
But maybe it’ll coax the sun back out…
It’s worth a try!

They grow some of their own food in the gardens and it’s guaranteed to always be packed.
