Taverne zum Schäfli - Fine Dining Switzerland
In this next installment of my Fine Dining series, I am visiting a two-star-taverna somewhere between Zurich and the German border near Constance in Wigoltingen: Zum Schäfli with chef de cuisine Christian Kuchler.
The seating area (I forgot to take a photo of that unfortunately) was kept like a traditional Swiss or German inn, very cosy.
1st Course - Prologue
2nd Course - Duck liver
3rd Course - White Alba truffle
4th Course - Dry Aged Entrecote
... there was one flaw though: a rather big vein went through it - I know it's natural, but I still didn't expect it here.
Cheese - Vacherin Mont D'or
This was the weakest dish. I didn't like this cold cheese and it was way too much. The fruit bread was great though.
5th Course - Dessert: Cassis
|Restaurant||Taverne zum Schäfli|
|Gault&Millau||18/20 / 3 Hats|
|Verdict||I have to admit that I expected a little more - to me it was rather a one star experience, which is still great, of course. But there was no common theme in the dishes and there were some (very) minor flaws at times. Service was flawless, though.|
