  Duration: 2 hrs

I sometimes skip breakfast at home, but it was not the case in Ecuador. The food was fresh, healthy, and flavorful – one of the highlights of my month-long stay in the country. I’d start each day with a glass of freshly-squeezed juice: pineapple, blackberry, orange, or flavors that were new to me, such as guanábana (soursop) and tomate de árbol (“tree tomato”). The juice would be followed by a soft bread roll or wheat toast, scrambled eggs, and queso fresco. But the most delicious breakfast item I had was at a family-owned hotel in Baños, a small town in central Ecuador. It was a simple fruit salad consisting of apples, bananas, pineapples, and mangos, and served with yogurt, honey, and granola. It may not look like anything out of the ordinary, but what made it memorable was how the flavors and textures worked together. The smoothness of the fruit contrasted with the crunchiness of the granola, and the sweetness of the honey was balanced against the mildness of the natural yogurt. I like to sleep in, but this fruit salad worked better than the loudest alarm clock.

Zürich itinerary, Kronenhalle
 0     5     30     0
  Duration: 2 hrs

A decent rösti (the Swiss version of hash browns) belongs on any list of dishes you simply have to try in German-speaking Switzerland. Around Bern, a traditional rösti is nice and crispy, but the one served with sliced veal and mushrooms in cream sauce at the world-famous Kronenhalle (at Rämistrasse 4 in Zürich) is as good as it gets. This traditional establishment has been a popular haunt of the great and the good for a century and has the most unbelievable collection of art you’ll ever see in a restaurant.
