You didn't manage to get your dream flat? Don't worry, ask Ron. I'm sure these tips will help you to secure a flat of your dreams.
1. How to deal with the agency

• Comparis searches all large housing platforms and offers a good overview. According to their grading system, you'll also see if you get good value for the money (even though some of the grades are ok, generally you won't really get enough value for the high rents in Zurich, i'm afraid).
• Act as fast as possible: Hand in your application the next day, respond immediately if the agency needs to know anything....
• Include a personal letter, why you love (yes, love!!!) this flat and why you need to live there. Sometimes, this helps. Key words: Long term, quite, clean.

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
