Bamboo Garden

Bamboo Garden is an Asian restaurant located in the heart of Eaux-Vives. I had never been there before, but had read positive reviews so I decided to go check it out for myself and I was not disappointed! The food was excellent, and the ingredients all seemed very fresh. The restaurant seems to specialize in Korean cuisine but the menu also offers dishes from other countries in the region.

Pictured below: Japchae, a Korean noodle, sesame, beef, spinach and carrot dish followed by a duck dish with a side of rice and a vegetable dish also served with rice.

Tse Fung

Geneva boasts a host of Chinese restaurants, chances are if you're jonesing for some fried rice, you won't have to walk long before you can satisfy your craving -- regardless of what neighborhood you're in. Having said that, if it's quality you're after, it's slim pickings in Geneva!

La réserve's Tse Fung, however, makes the kind of delectable Chinese food that makes you want to keep going back for more. Of course, Tse Fung -- as well as the many sub par Chinese restaurants in Geneva that are more affordable -- also confirms the old adage, you get what you pay for... so one probably won't be going back for more as often as one would like! Nevertheless, it is probably one of Geneva's finest Chinese restaurants, and I would definitely recommend it!

A burger at Kempinski

An impromptu dinner at Kempinski, a decent Caesar salad followed by a cheeseburger. The burger was good, the bun was excellent.
