Epic culinary Tuesday – Lunch

It was 27ºC and sunny, so where else in Winterthur to eat but Goldenberg? While one goes there for the outdoor seating and the view, this time the food was excellent. The lamb, pictured, was tender and delicious. The chocolate cake with cardamom ice-cream (surprisingly adventurous flavour for Swiss restaurants, and surprisingly well-executed) was a nice balance of scrumptious chocolate heaviness and deliciously refreshing coolness.

Epic culinary Tuesday – Supper

A bet was lost, a dinner was gained. The only thing better than eating at a 1 Michelin * restaurant is having someone else pay for it. Mesa was awesome. Easily in the top-10 meals ever, though we both agreed it was a bit heavy on the salt.
