Gingers Gutschein Guide This week Ronsters, our Prozentbuch brought me to Wurst and Moritz, a charming little Wurst vendor situated right next to Escher Wyss Platz and very close to my local cinema. The perfect place for some pre-movie eats.
Anyone thinking of writing off Wurst and Moritz as your typical Wurst shack should think again. This place is packed with character and charm. The Moritz of the title is a reference to a Willhelm Busch children's story and the walls of the the restaurant are covered with illustrated antics of Moritz and the trouble he gets into with his wurst. It makes me kinda sad as a non-German speaker that I don't understand these little comics but it's another reason to come back when my language skills get up to speed. It's the obvious attention to detail and thought behind its execution that elevates this place from good to great. Each of the menu options are named after famous childhood literary characters, with both Heidi and Willhelm Tell making an appearance. Finally, whats not to love about a eatery that specifically imports a beer from Barcelona just so it can offer a Moritz beer with your Wurst. It's all about the details, people.
First thing to know about this place is that it has a good deal of bang for your buck. Your francs stretch far in Wurst and Moritz, you can get Wurst with pommes, bread and a beer for just 15 francs. We actually tried to use our gutschien on a previous occasion when we were hungrier than this one, only to be informed it would work out cheaper to order the menu deal. That's another thing: I appreciated the staffs' honesty and they have always been incredibly friendly whenever I popped in. There is a lot to be said about this kind of customer experience and it's one that will have me returning again and again.
On to the food - that's what we are all here for then eh? We ordered two Schweinswurst mit Brot and two beers (again, my hubby was in tow, as usual). It did not disappoint. Tender and tasty and don't get me started on the bread. I want the recipe. I've been a few times to this place so I can also vouch for the Currywurst and the pommes too. Not to be missed.
It really is the perfect place for a quick snack before the cinema or even just somewhere to eat in general. And those Moritz beers go down a treat.
I've told you before but another warning can't hurt. Fraudsters are active on all housing platforms in Switzerland. Also on my pages. Unfortunately, I can't guarantee that all offers are genuine. I do my best to blacklist any i catch but
