The best thing about autumn? The food! Fresh apples, mushrooms, pumpkin and chestnuts. But Autumn also heralds the start of the hunting season and with it tons of fresh game becomes available. But as game dishes dissapear from Zurich’s plates faster than you can say «Hirschpfeffer» you have to be quick. With that in mind i have come ups with a list of 13 great restaurants that all serve venison and other game treats. All you have to do is decide: traditional in the Schönau, glamorous in the Kronenhalle or rather rustic in the Weissen Kreuz?
From the 5th of November the Gartenhof will be offering all the Autumn classics. From «Nüsslisalat» to spätzle, red cabbage, wild boar entrecôte (always from Switzerland), saddle of venison and venison carpaccio.
Take a few steps towards Wiedikon station and you’ll find Hermanseck, another restaurant that is wild about wild. The first thing that caught my eye was the «Hirschkopfbäggli» but if you prefer something a bit more traditional try the venison stew, venison fillet or escalope.
If you are in Sihlcity during autumn a post shop stop at the Wirtschaft zur Au is part of the game season. You'll find classic dishes of venison, deer, wild boar and chamois with a modern interpretation. There is also a daily changing "Lucky Shot" - and there is plenty of vegetarian stuff too.
The Tobelhof is a little further away, but the journey is worth it. The kitchen of the listed farm serves selected venison specialities. The Tobelhof venison escalope with mushrooms, spiced grapes and wild cream sauce is highly recommended. The secret highlight, however, is the vegetarian autumn symphony with buttered spaetzli, red cabbage and Brussels sprouts.
It's like immersing yourself in a bygone era. The Kronenhalle has been an institution in Zurich for 100 years. In addition to the (perhaps best) Züri Geschnetzeltes, you can enjoy game meatloaf with potato purée, Hitsch chops on sausage or venison fillets with grapes and Piedmont hazelnuts. But that’s not all. Feed your soul by admiring original works by Chagall, Picasso and Miro.
Although Das Blau is much better suited to the urban wilderness of Kreis 4 than to a forest, the well-designed Hotel Greulich serves exquisite game specialities. For example, venison pepper with red cabbage, venison sausage with cranberry jus, juicy wild boar chops and much more.
There is only one game dish on the menu at Hardhof, but it is a hit: the «Rehpfeffer» from Poschiavo satisfies all game cravings, while vegis can fill their bellies with homemade spaetzli with oven-baked pumpkin.
One of my favourite neighbourhood pubs is the Falken at Schmiede Wiedikon. The food is reliable and down-to-earth and the hosts are warm and welcoming. In autumn, the game menu is another great reason to visit the restaurant.
The Weisse Kreuz is properly old school - including Maggi spices and Aromat on the table. The design of game menu also reminds me of pubs I used to go to with my grandparents. And, as you know, grandma knows best so i like to come here for the game because the venison sausage, the venison schnitzel and the venison pepper are top-notch.
As the temperature drops the desire for Switzerland’s special, liquid gold increases. There’s nothing like the velvety texture and warming feeling of a good fondue and, when it’s with good friends and snow outside the window,
