Zeughauskeller, Zurich ūüĎć

An oldie, but ample, goodie in the heart of Zurich. We have eaten at this restaurant more times than we can remember over 20+ years of visiting Zurich. Nothing special, but simple, good, open all day and high turnover ensuring good quality!

We often are amazed as we see people digging into a huge sausage with potatoes. One must have a certain genetic makeup to eat like that and live past, well, 40!

Butter Lettuce salad. No simpler than this lettuce with nary an onion nor tomato. Happy Rabbits.

Marinated perch fillets with boiled potatoes. Good, filling, ate approximately half. Big plate.

Kalbageschnetzeltes nach Zurcher Art. Panfried sliced veal and mushrooms with “Rosti” potatoes.¬†Very good, but a huge plate of food!

Naturtrub beer.¬†Very sweet. We¬†feel “healthy” as it is made from “three types of grains”…whatever that means.

It was time¬†to walk…

Da Capo ūüĎćūüĎćūüĎć

A very swish, non-train-goer (except us) restaurant adjoining the Zurich HB Station.  Very high ceiling and nicely decorated.  Quite unusual for a train station restaurant, albeit Le Train Blue at the Gare de Lyon in Paris does not suck!  If you are seeking an excellent lunch before boarding a train in Europe, then Da Capo and Le Train Bleu must be on your to-do list.

Freshly home made tomato soup with roasted herb-olive baguette.  Very good mini-baguette with rosemary flavour.  Nice!  Tomato soup good, very tomatoey, far from the best we have had.

Mixed market salad with Da Capo dressing.  Carrots, cucumbers, corn, tomatoes and lettuce.  Happy Rabbits we were.  Dressing with a mustard base quite good.  Simple and easy.

Whole roasted trout from the “Bergeller” valley with dill-potatoes and leaf spinach. ¬†We¬†had to spend a few minutes de-boning the fish…fortunately a skill learned by all Hong Kong Cantonese people!!! Excellent fish stuffed/seasoned tastefully¬†with a perfect blend of herbs. Spinach equally tasty and boiled potatoes very good¬†with just a sprinkling of rosemary. A to Z a winner! Alas,¬†we were only able to finish a little more than half…kudos and apologies were extended via the waiter to the chef.

Pan fried perch filets on lemon-risotto, mushrooms and green vegetables. Extremely well-prepared with mucho flavours primarily from the lemon. Risotto a bit too creamy for our preference, but yummy. A to W a winner…lost some letters due to the excess of cream!

Glass of 2010 Mont sur Rolle, Domaine Bec d’Or Cave Berthaudin¬†was tres horrible. ¬†We were taking it easy given the journey ahead of us so we managed to avoid the almost compulsory bottle!
