Wädenswil – Last week, I wasn’t in the mood to cook something for lunch. I haven’t had Asian food for ages and so I thought I’ll go again to Poo’s Siam Asia Shop for something to take home. You can do take away with daily changing menus or sit down for lunch or an early dinner and choose something à la carte.There are some 20 seats inside and some outside on the little terrace. If you want to cook for yourself, they even have a small Asian grocery selection.

If you are looking for a special catering, Poo and her staff do this as well. I was lucky and experienced it already many times and everything was just delicious and the guests always excited.
Zurich – I have already written about Hiltl in an earlier post. Last week I went again for lunch….I cannot explain, but although I love meat, the vegetarian food and the cool and relaxed atmosphere is unbeaten. The former animal shop around the corner is now the vegetarian butchery attached to the Hiltl concept – how applicable!
Mallorca – On the other side of the old town of Palma there is a newish part for going out. The food is mouth-watering if I think of it now….Ceviche interpreted in a new way. The chef is German but got his experience from many years living and working in Japan. The sushis are a must. They also have the 4kilo wine
Bangkok – The roof top of the hotel Banyantree hosts the restaurant Vertigo. The view over Bangkok is just spectacular and breathtaking. The food of the restaurant is international with an Asian twist and quite ok but pricey. You need to book in advance and respect the dress code. If you want to have a look you can also just go for a drink or two….
Wädenswil – A friend of mine grew up in Thailand and came to Switzerland with about 20 years. Today she has her own take away and Asian food store in Wädenswil. She also does catering and cooking classes. I have never eaten better Thai food as at her home and I tried to learn from her in her cooking class….the only thing I can do quite properly now are the satay skewers (see recipe below).
Zurich – My favourite Thai restaurant in Zurich is the Keo Inn as the food is very authentic and service very nice and attentive. They even have the marinated chicken in pandanus leaves, one of my preferred. The Keo Inn is open 365 days a year and the atmosphere very relaxed and you feel comfortable in a suit directly after work or in a casual dress.
