Restaurant Hermannseck, Birmensdorferstrasse, Zurich

Fleisch und Käse mit Kräutersüppchen

Fleisch und Käse mit Kräutersüppchen



I headed to dinner at the Hermanseck. A nice place near Bahnhof Wiedikon with a large gay community, so I start thinking that maybe I shouldn’t dine alone here with my manly good looks. Anyway I got excellent service, was well attended to and no phone numbers made it my way. The menu said something about Tapas and I asked what was available. They showed me a tasty display of cheese and meat, which I chose as an appetizer. The salami and the cheese was nice, but I don’t like thick chunks of chorizo, it either needs to be cut thin or cooked. I’ve had a lovely plate with five different tartares here during summer and decided to try the signature dish, the truffle tartare. A lovely rich and sensual smell hits your nose, spreading on a piece of bread it’s a powerful bite which you dig into. Unfortunately it’s not a very delicate dish and the portion is large, so I grew tired of it after about half of the tartare. Still for a neighborhood restaurant it gets a decent rating – Finances.
