Meeting Point: Restaurant Drei Stuben

Hi all, one last "A taste of..." lunch meeting for this year, and it is only fair to conclude with Switzerland, no?

To close the year properly, I propose (thanks to zwissmiss for the excellent recommendation):

Drei Stuben
Beckenhofstrasse 5
8006 Zürich
http://dreistuben.ch/index.html

I will make a reservation a couple of days prior based on the number of YES.

Cheers!

  • Helm - Ich bin in POOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORTUGAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • coconut - Kalbs Hackbraten yum yum! 23th i will need extra hours to attend so many clients, good for me but im sad I will miss the last Taste of... of the year. „En Gueta mitenand“

And I think that it is most appropriate that my 500th post should be about FOOD!

Maybe he wanted to thank you instead? Magic of the i-Phone...
On the other hand, some people, like this one here, groan away for apparently no reason.

Well if it was a mistake I hope they will ungroan us, but if not, I agree with the weirdo sign for both of them!

The only plausible reason I can think of for the groans (besides weird) is that they both perhaps do not get as much pleasure from food as we do?
Foodphiles unite!


PS - Did you get your Kanafeh in the end?

Re: A Taste of Switzerland - Christmas Edition

Xmas edition of "a taste of..." and it's Switzerland, so it's "fondue chinoise" isn't it?

Doubt I can make it saying that.

Hehehe, we already had our fondue lunch By the way, I highly recommend that fondue place!

We'll have to check the menu for the day, they might have some fondue, but I am not sure. Hope you can make it!

No fondue ever on the menu that I have seen.
They do a daily pasta, fish, meat and veggie meal of the day including soup or salad. Prices range from 21-32 depending on which option you take.
Staples on the lunch menu (no soup or salad included) are:
Zürich Veal "geschnetzeltes" with Butterrösti CHF 39.00
Veal meatloaf Drei Stuben mit Mashed potatoes, vegetables CHF 33.00
Bratwurst with onionsauce Butterrösti CHF 23.00- It is the HUGEST bratwurst I have ever seen
You feel like you are in the mountains when you go to this restaurant, check out the link in the previous post and do the 360 degree view
