Badrutt’s Palace Hotel St. Moritz

My personal highlight: Admiring the wooden wall shelves with books from 120 years of Badrutt’s Palace-history & the unique Sistine Madonna from the easel of the famous Raphael took my breath away!

Badrutt’s Palace is located in the beautiful upper Engadine. Experience an authentic and calming vibe from the moment you enter the Hotel. Dive into a space where you get surrounded by high quality service and an ambience that relaxes your senses. The kindness of the staff is the first thing I noticed and appreciated every moment of my stay. They read every wish from your lips and make a guest feel comfortable in every situation.

 

The authentic and historical heritage goes back to 1856 when the family Badrutt started this project. Johannes Badrutt bought a small guesthouse in St. Moritz and gave birth to that fairytale that is still alive today. During my stay I had the pleasure to be guided through the house and understand much about the values and thoughts that the family Badrutt put into this pearl. It’s the perfect hideaway for families and couples that appreciate high luxury and aim to discover the upper Engadine Alps in Winter or autumn for skiing, hiking or simply enjoy time off.

The view to the lake of St. Moritz is the cherry on the top. 

The dedicated staff lead by Richard Leuenberger makes Badrutt’s Palace Hotel be part of the „Swiss Deluxe Hotels“. The label stands for premium quality and extraordinary service lead on a heritage of tradition and experience.

Accommodation

Badrutt’s Palace has 157 rooms including 37 suites with a view of the alps. The rooms offer elegance,  class and high comfort. Experience a symbiosis of luxury furnishings, timeless elegance and modern technology.
The popular 280 m² large Hans Badrutt suite completed in 2003 together with the 250 m² large Helen Badrutt suite have a marble bathroom. The Helene Badrutt’s Suite reflects very nice how elegant and classy they have been thought already back in time. It is decorated with unique pieces of art that belong to the family. For the interior sophisticated premium textiles are chosen added with modern technical equipment. The hotel is carefully refurbished in keeping the historical foundations.

Yu-An Japanese Restaurant, Zurich

My personal highlight: Sitting 3 hours at the counter at Yu-An Zurich observing the owner Ken creating finger licking inside out rolls

Being a food blogger doesn’t mean you have to try every place in town. In my case I try to focus on selected quality food only and on the authenticity of a place. A further criteria for me is the experience which includes the kindness of the staff and a comfortable surrounding. My good nose brought me to Stauffacher this month at the Japanese Restaurant Yu-An located at Werdstrasse 66, Zurich.

Feel the Izakaya Style at Yu-An

In the 1600ies Japanese sake shops started to serve customers skewers and other light bites. This was the beginning of izakayas – literally meaning “sitting in a sake shop”. Nowadays you find these places all over Japan as after-work watering holes that offer an inexpensive and kind of informal dining. This is a philosophy that I guess you truly feel at Yu-An and Kokoro in Zurich.

I knew about the very successfully, Gault-Milliau awarded Japanese Restaurant Kokoro, located in a side street of Langstrasse (since 2015) managed by the same owner Ken Groh and his partner Mioh Suguro. Why not discovering the second project Yu-An run through my mind.

The traditional Izakaya Food Philosophy is a main component of both restaurants. That is what I understand and feel there. You share different warm and cold dishes from seafood to beef and sushi rolls or sashimi.

What to point out at Yu-An ?

The ambience

Dining here throws you back to Japan not only because of the traditional food but also because of the originality of the interior. Some of the picture that hang at the wall contain original rarities of Japanese magazines that belonged to Ken’s grandfather. Sitting at the counter observing the inside out rolls being prepared is something you have to experience. Hearing a Japanese conversation and the pleasant sound of the language makes my ears happy. ( I do no understand a word though).

The food

You have a great selection of warm and cold dishes, all prepared fresh with premium quality products by Chef Tatsunori and the staff. I suggest to try a degustation menu and share plates. You find weekly specials for meat lovers and vegetarians.

My absolute favorites: Their inside out rolls! Choose the Tiger roll that comes with a tempura fried tender shrimp, cucumber inside and outside a spicy tuna avocado. The Salmon Aburi roll has some salmon, ginger, cucumber and shiso, outside a salmon flambé and home made sauce. If you like beef, absolutely choose the Entrecôte Teriyaki roll or the Beef roll flambé! Food porn included.

Guess what makes Yu-An special in town is the really superb choice of rolls!

What else to try beside inside out rolls? Pork and Soft Shell Crab Karage, please!

Go for some seafood! The Soft Shell Karage is a crab marinated and fried. Its taste is very light and spicy.
Add a meat plate: The Buta Kakuni is a slow-coked piece of pork breast with a creamy fat layer melting as butter on the palate. It is spiced up just perfect with a Japanese mustard.

For lunch: Try their Poké bowls, the menu comes with a soup or salad. The one with the onsen egg is a must try! Otherwise get a gourmet lunch menu for CHF 46.5o. It comes with a miso soup, a small salad, sushi & sashimi, beef, salmon or shrimps in a hot pan and Japanese rice.

Opening hours: Tue – Fri  11:30 – 14:30, Tue – Sa  18:30 – 22:30

Address: Werdstrasse 66, 8004 Zürich, Kreis 4

Casa Teresa – Bocadillo Iberico at Seefeld

bocadillo

My personal highlight: Zurich finally has a traditional Spanish place to enjoy premium Iberico Bocadillo

If you love Spain and traditional quality food this is the address to stop by at Seefeld. The owner Mabel, inspired by her grandmother’s habit preparing her a “bocadillo” as a child – a small bite, mostly made with bread – brings Casa Teresa to life. The shop is decorated with lots of little details bringing closer the Iberico history.

Get a premium quality Iberico ham in a crispy baguette. Mabel developed the baguette with John Baker. Try the baguette with some squeezed tomato and fresh extra virgin olive oil on top. The simplicity of this lunch or snack is excellent. Vegetarians get home made salads or a traditional Tortilla.
Explore the choice of different artisan Spanish delicacies as vines, Spanish Gin, olive oil or super delicious truffle potato chips. Casa Teresa is the little sister of her established Tapas & Friends in Wiedikon. Find more on my blog here.

Facts you should know about Spanish hams

There are different types of Spanish hams available depending on the characteristics of the pig they come from. Pig breeds are one of the factors that classify a ham. Cured Spanish hams are classified into two categories: Jamón Serrano (mountain ham) and Jamón Ibérico (Iberian ham).

Jamón Serrano is a ham produced from white breed pigs whose meat is lean and has fat on the outside. The meat of a Jamón Serrano has a light red color, is slightly salty and characterized by a gentle fragrance. This type of ham is produced from typical white breeds. Its flavour is mild. It takes one to two years to cure this type of ham.

Jamón Ibérico is a ham coming from the pigs of the Ibérico breed. This meat is deep red, with beautiful marbling of golden fat. It is bathed in flavor as it cures over years.
A prestigious Jamón Ibérico is the Jamón Ibérico de Bellota. It comes from acorn fed pigs that wander freely on the rangelands of southwestern Spain. This Jamon is very flavorful, with strong, complex aromas, slightly salty but almost sweet with flavors of cooked sugar, nuts and herbs.
Discover the Iberico hams at Casa Teresa and let Mabel introduce you to this fabulous speciality.

Address: Casa Teresa, Dufourstrasse 57, 8008 Zürich

Opening hours: Monday – Friday 10:00 to 17:30, Saturday/Sunday closed

How do you choose the perfect coffee shop? What influences your choice? Is it the type of spot that is modest but serious about excellent quality coffee.

How about observing a traditional coffee person entering into a flat white world?

They serve also filter coffee, so just be curious enough to try what you like.

25Hours Hotels The Royal Bavarian Munich

My personal highlight: Learning more about Munich’s history, the Bavarian Royals and their traditions in a modern, fancy and glorious interpreted way at 25 Hours Hotels Munich

How do you book your hotels? Which criteria do matter for your booking? How much do you know about 25Hours Hotels available in Germany, Austria and Switzerland? Let me introduce you to the new 25Hours HotelThe Royal Bavarian” in Munich. Get more insights on other 25Hours hotels on my accommodation guide here (Zurich) or here (Hamburg)!

I experienced 25 Hours Hotels this year the first time in Hamburg. I have to admit, before traveling to a city after having had excellent experiences with them, I first check, if a 25 Hours Hotel is available.

The Royal Bavarian opened its doors just recently and is brand new in Munich. It’s located 2 minutes from the train station and offers all high level standards and services known from other 25Hours Hotels.

What makes The Royal Bavarian Hotel in Munich special?

Anne one of the hotel staff members guides me through the house and explains to me significant details that were used to create this Bavarian surrounding. I see myriads of ironic and iconographic allusions to Bavarian history and its royal legacy. I love the story, that the Managers and the architect went for a guided sightseeing tour through Munich, to best grab and understand relevant details of its history. The goal was to transmit them into the design concept and interior to make the place authentic and real. Special elements as the ancient sledge, the swan chair or the furniture in the Boilerman Bar feature selected, materials. They create affectionate nods allover the place. This is the signature experience of this hotels.

The hotel is situated in a ancient building from the year 1800 ca. a former Imperial Post and Telegraph Office on the forecourt of the Central Station. That is why for example you find some ancient original typing machines in the hotel alley. Hotel guests have the opportunity to type their own letter, feel thrown back in time, and mail it to the wished address afterwards.

The catchy topic of the hotel is the Royal Bavarian History. I notice lots of Swan and Elefant elements all over the hotel. These were favorite animals of farmer royals. King Ludwig II of Bavaria, also known as the “Fairytale King was one of them, he lived in the castle called Neuschwanstein. Neuschwanstein literally means “New Swan Castle” referencing of “the Swan Knight” one of the Wagner’s characters.”. King Ludwig was a great admirer and supporter of Richard Wagner, the world-renowned composer.

This is 25 Hours Hotel The Royal Bavarian in a glimpse

Kraftwerk Café & Food Zurich

My personal highlight: An inspiring co-work space with a cool industrial ambience where to get regularly changing Specialty Coffee &  vegetarian mezze as the Shakshuka with sweet potato & pecorino cheese

Welcome to Kraftwerk Café located at the shores of the Sihl river. A cozy, urban and spacious coffee and co-working space in town that converts to a lovely restaurant in the evening. Thank you City of Zurich and Impact hub for giving us this unique place!

I am fascinated about the interior on one hand reflecting different small living room spots with lovely decoration, on the other hand there is the modern and trendy influence of these huge containers used as conference or workshop rooms. I do also love very much the coffee wall where you get explained what a real cappuccino is!

The phenomenal La Marzocco coffee machine caught a lot of my attention. The experienced barista Dario knows best how to use this wonderful machine to create my flat white. He is further in charge of the coffee selection for all coffee places within the impact hub co-work spaces. You may know him from Auer Co. close to Limmatplatz, the other coffee and co-work space managed by Impact hub.

Try the Zurich roast and a monthly changing guest coffee roast

What I love about the coffee here is that they support local Zurich Coffee from the roaster “Miro“. I had a roast with a bit of a (red) fruity, chocolate and nut taste called Serra Negra. One of my favorite ones
An other unique thing you find here: nearly every month the selection of coffee changes, so you get the chance to try a variety of guest coffee brands. This makes a coffee lover best understand the diversity of specialty coffee used around the world. You can ask Dario everything about coffee, he is happy to suggest you which coffee suites best your desire.

Not only co-work space but also a spot for lunch or dinner

The team of  Sandro Zinggeler, you may know him from Restaurant Mesa or as Sous-Chef at Restaurant Münsterhof spoiled me with excellent vegetarian mezze with a slight Asian touch. Dario Veggi is the man that prepares the dishes with his staff at Kraftwerk. He revealed to me, that he is very much inspired by Japanese cuisine. That is why my daily special came with a super fresh papaya-veggie sushi roll.

Choose out of different plates to share with your friends. My absolute favorite ones are the Shakshuka with a purée of sweet potato on the bottom and some pecorino cheese on top. I found it the perfect combination with the sweet & salty taste! Absolute to recommend, too, is the hummus made with little tahini and a delicate green vegetarian sauce called Chug.

The paprika powder comes on top and not in the hummus, I found that a good hint from Dario. Will use it next time when preparing it at home!

What else to say, try it for lunch or dinner and don’t miss space in your belly for one of their home made desserts. The cheese cake has a dependency factor 10!

Thank you for using the Lovefoodish Coffee and Food guide Zurich! Get inspired about more specialty coffee here.

Sunday is the day to have brunch with friends. This time my hungry stomach brings me to Zurich, Kreis 4 in Langstrasse 10. Here I get introduced to a Chinese Brunch at Lucky Dumpling. The manager Angel Liu welcomes us. I let her choose our brunch menu.

What to expect from a Chinese Brunch?

The name says it all, we dive into Chinese food traditions. Please, forget about eggs and ham or croissant and jams. Here we experience a variety of dishes served as Chinese tapas (small served plates). I love the fact that you can share these small plates with your friends and eat you through the brunch menu.

Dumplings in different sizes, shapes and fillings

Get salty and sweet steamed dumplings in different sizes, shapes and ways of preparation.
Find Dumplings or Baos (an other form of a dumpling measuring about 10 cm) filled with vegetables, pork, shrimps spiced up with herbs and a delicious hand made soya sauce. Absolutely recommendable is the Hun Dun Soup. The stock is super tasty, clear and comes with wontons (additional form of dumpling in a triangle shape). It has a pork, shrimp, ginger and vegetable filling I found outstanding.

I love the sweet dumplings, filled with red beans or pumpkin. The fried dumpling with a sesame coat is super delicious, too.

All dumplings are made from scratch and fresh every day. The meat used is from regional suppliers (Zurich Oberland). I absolutely recommend the fresh brewed mint tea that comes with orange juice, too.

Talking to the owner Angel Liu I understand that she takes care about healthy food, it’s her lifestyle, too. That is why all dumplings are Glutamate free at Lucky Dumpling.

Additional tapas on the menu are: Chinese Burger made with a special pita bread bun and a slow cooked beef and pork meat added with fresh herbs and salad. Get an overview of the brunch menu here. Brunch is served Saturday and Sunday. The place is recommendable for dinner or lunch, too.
