Do you know what an Izakaya is? No? Well, Izakaya is the Japanese word for a tavern, (the word literally translates as “stay, sake shop”) and is the place where people meet, perhaps afterwork, for good food, drinks and friendly company. Fortunately Zurich now has its very own Izakaya in the shape of Gaijin, a new Japanese restaurant near to Stauffacher. If you are expecting Ramen and Sushi you are in for a shock: The menu is very different to what you might expect but creative and delicious and the brainchild of chef Dan Shu. I can’t wait to go again.
With all the hot weather we’ve been having it’s great to get out on the water and enjoy the lake. Temperatures are often noticeable lower when you leave the shore so it provides some respite from the sweltering heat of the city. But
2. Lake or river? Water sports in Zurich
Okay, so we’re not basking on the coast of Mediterranean, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy the water. At destinations along Lake Zurich there are different types of water sports to choose from – and learning
3. Meatloaf? No, It's Fleischkäse.
What is «Fleischkäse»? If you translate directly you get a distinctly unappetising sounding «meat cheese» but the closest you can get in English is meat loaf which doesn’t really do it justice. The best thing to is give it a try and

2. Lucky Dumpling: Authentic Chinese
6 years ago we welcomed 'Dini Mueter' to the Langstrasse. This summer, the bar and restaurant underwent a refurbishment and just reopened its doors with a new concept and a new name. Well, actually the new name is also the concept: Lucky
3. Ooki: All the way from Tokyo
Whenever a new Japanese restaurant opens somewhere, you can be sure that I’m not far behind. This new locale is called Ooki and serves gyoza, ramen, tempura, udon, Japanese curries and sake. The interior is very authentic, the
Hi, We are based in Oberhasli, Zurich, and are looking for somebody to sit a few hours with our cat. We are away between Thursday 14/04 and Monday 19/04, and don't want him to get lonely. If you would like to pay our cat company while reading a book, doing your home office, or would like to stay overnight, we and Ninja would be very happy. Price negotiable, and help on only some days would be sufficient, since we will have somebody come and feed him daily anyways.
We open the Stadtkäserei Basel!
- We produce high-quality and creative cheese in the city
- We only use organic milk from really happy cows from Margarethengut near Basel!
- For all those who follow a vegan diet and therefore avoid animal milk products, vegan house cheese also has a permanent place in our sales counter.
As a first step, we would like to buy the most necessary inventory in order to set up a real cheese dairy with a maturing room in a suitable location in Basel.
In a second step, equipment such as a large cheese kettle, cheese molds, etc. must be purchased. This also includes a maturing container with refrigeration technology and a maturing rack for the cheese.
And in the last step, a renovation is necessary to enable you to enjoy our gastronomic delicacies directly on site (of course processed with our cheese), but also where you can celebrate the taste of our specialties together at events.
If we exceed our funding amount, we will put the money into the opening of another location in Basel. So you have an additional location to experience our cheese with all your senses.
For all extra-motivated supporters of CHF 100 or more, we have also prepared a surprise that you will receive with your rewards!
