When I go to a restaurant in Switzerland, my biggest struggle is to decide for one dish – and one dish only. But when you eat tapas, it is all about sharing. The more people the more dishes. So next to the great diversity of the Spanish cuisine, the way of eating tapas, the “tapas culture”, is what makes it a real experience. Pimientos del Padrón, Patatas Bravas & my favorites: Croquetas. So, today I am going to find out if the Tapas & Friends in Zurich is really worth visiting…
We heard a lot of good things about the Insólito so we decided to go check it out. The restaurant is located in the Bairro Alto, a beautiful neighbourhood in the south west of Lisbon with a lot of restaurants and bars around. The Insólito has one of the most amazing rooftops in Lisbon and the atmoshpere has some magic to it. The place is at the same time a rooftop bar and a restaurant with a very individualistic style. From the inside area you can watch the chefs at work while from the outside you can enjoy the great view on the lights of the city.
Today, spring is slowly but surely coming to town. A great time to sit outside in the sun and enjoy a delicious smoothie. I used to drink this green smoothie every day while I was living in Sayulita, a little Mexican surfer village. So that is why I called it the Green Sayulita Smoothie. It has been already one year now, but my love for this healthy energy bomb continuous also here in Zurich and that is why I definitely need to share this recipe with you.
Trying something new is always nice. And if this new thing is challenging, even better. So I decided to participate in the 3 weeks Reboot Challenge by Swiss City Bootcamp. Split in three parts, I will write about my experience as a sporty early bird at the end of each week. So, here comes part 1.
This is the perfect green soup for winter days and my favorite dinner after a late workout. It is loaded with fibres, vitamins and plant protein to provide your body with the necessary nutrients. The preparation time for this soup is only 15 minutes and you could also easily prepare it in advance and store it in the freezer to heat up when you need a quick meal.
One of my favorite things to start the weekend is to go to a nice and cozy café and enjoy a good coffee. It’s just the perfect way to catch up with my friends, read a good book, make plans and simply spend some quality time. But as always when you move to a new city, I was a bit clueless at first. Hello Zurich, nice to meet you. But where to go now for my Saturday morning coffee?
10 Reasons why cinnamon is great for your body & health
Cinnamon has been used around the world for thousands of years. We mostly know it as the bark (cinnamon stick) or as the ground spice (cinnamon powder). Today, its most popular use is in the kitchen for the taste, but also its medicinal use has a longstanding tradition.
I have to admit I was not always such a huge fan of the taste of cinnamon. But when I started to read about nutrition, cinnamon appeared in so many recipes and everyone was praising its impressive health benefits. So I got curious and started to research about that superfood spice.
