Ginger's Gutschein Guide For those who’ve never Wagamama-ed, it’s a Japanese food specialist but less sushi, more noodles and ramen. I’ve been to a couple and the layout is usually the same in all of them: the usual hallway with the display cabinet of various Wagamama paraphernalia, cookbooks (corporate dining at its finest) on display leading you to podium where you wait to be seated. The table layoutis very communal with large wooden tables and long wooden benches such that you end up eating your meal with strangers who sometimes become your new best friends (similar to a beer hall but with noodle soup).
A friendly waitress led us to our table and Icould see in my hubby’s eyes that it was time to launch the attack. It would have been folly to attempt this using my very limited German so I opened with my usual“Sprechen Sie Englisch”. Luckily she did speak English very well so I showed her our voucher and sheinformed us that they wouldhappily accept it and it would be the cheaperof the two main courses ordered that would be removed from our bill.The weight was then lifted, the reaction to our voucher couldn’t have been nicer but I was banking on Wagamama to ease us into thisexperience. I do still wonder how it would go down in a well to do establishment like,say,the Dolder Grand.
Stress overwith,it wasthenon to the fun part. To drink, Hubby ordered a large apple and orange juice while I ordered a glass of Santa Christina, Italian redwine, soft, fruity and a perfect accompaniment to my mood.
On the night, starters arrived first. I had ordered theBeefYakitori and my other half theDuckGyoza (dumplings) but who ordered what wasirrelevant for starters as it’s usually a sharingfree for all with us.Thegyoza did not disappoint - they never do. They are our Wagamama staple. The Yakitori was a new one for us, skewered stripes of beef seasoned in a soy and peanut sauce. Delicious. Word of warning to any‘well-done’ beef eaters out there, it’s served quite bloody but this is highly masked by the sauce. For us, the bloodier the better.
Since I was a bit adventurous with the starter, I decided to stick to my favourite dish on the menu forthe main, Chicken Katsu Curry, deep fried strips of breaded chicken breast served underneath a bed of steamed rice, covered in andelectable curry sauce, and garnished with a side salad. So simple, so tasty, I am getting a food boner reliving it as I type.Hubby’s main was the Ginger Chicken Udon. I managed to get a taste and, whilst flavoursome it was, it was maybe lacking in moistness or a sauce for my liking.He seemed happy out with it though.
We did contemplate desert but there was just nothing jumping out at us to share and neither of us wanted a full one (typical gays) so we just asked for the bill and handed over our Prozentbuch voucher.There was a brief trill of excitement trying to speculate how little we would be out of pocket for all the delicious food we had just eaten and whenit did arrive it brought smiles to our faces. All that food for69.70 CHF and with tip we both spent exactly 40CHF and had two very full bellies.
So the first Gutchein experience was a very pleasant one, but I planned for it to be. Let’s see how the rest go.
It is well known fact that Swiss people go to the polls a lot but this week is the big one. You may have noticed the proliferation of billboards of grinning (or grimacing,) political figures as the nation gears up for the election

If you are a fan of fondue and are looking for a nice, cosy environment in which to partake i can recommend Frau Gerolds Garten . This week is the opening week of their very own Winter Fondue Stube which is done in their own inimitable way. The relaxed vibe of Frau Gerolds Garten with gallons of cheese. Highly recommended.
