Speisesaal Clubhotel, Davos
I’m getting older and I forgot to take pictures. We were spending the weekend at Davos for some nordic skiing. My first days in the army were almost as pleasant and my body is aching like hell. Anyway we were put up at the Club Hotel Davos . Dinner was served at the dining room, since it is included in the room price. I was expecting something questionable this and had five Minipics in advance. First course served was – and I kid you not – Shrimp cocktail Calypso. It’s winter and we’re in the mountains, how can a chef get the half-assed idea of serving a shrimp cocktail, let alone call it Calypso. Even Harry Belafonte would have made a better cocktail. Following this disaster was an onion soup. It was okay. Main course was broccoli, roeschti and Zürcher Gschnetzeltes. If I were running the place, the cook would have been fired on the spot. Broccoli was severly overcooked and mushy, the Zürcher Geschnetzeltes was missing mushrooms, wine and the sauce itself was sour and of a metallic taste. The roeschti was an industrial product which was delivered frozen and already portioned, a complete joke. The food at the dining room here is so bad, that it almost turns into something funny. The whole meal just shouted chef from a water park in Castrop Rauxel is now cooking during the winter season at the Club hotel.
