Saturday lunch I called a good friend and we wanted to go for a Metzgete. Metzgete literally means Butchery and implies that all kind of different pork preparations are served. Some research led me to believe that the Bären in Bözen seems like a good address for Metzgete. It takes you only 50 minutes from Zurich mainstation to get there (train to Brugg, Postauto to Bözen Mitteldorf). We sit down at the table and decide on a local wine. The waitress approaches us with a small list of all the things which are offered at the Metzgete, we decide to go with one of each. She looks surprised but shrugs it off and puts in our order. We ordered pork chops, liver-, blood- (boudin), smoke- and bratwurscht, apple slices, bread, roeschti and sauerkraut. A perfect light lunch on a nice sunny autumn day. The friend I brought along has a background in butchery and as such was highly qualified to judge the sausages. We both agreed that it was a great metzgete. Only the smoked sausage didn’t have much appeal. Everything else was great. Take the liver sausage as an example. Real porc intestines on the outside, liver with onions and even some raisins on the inside, nicely seasoned just a perfect example of what a “Leberwurscht” should be (and it was only charged at 11 CHF). We did feel a bit full, so a couple of local juniper berry (Wacholder) schnaps helped out (no it wasn’t as strong as gin). A great and fantastic meal at a great price. If you like 100% vegan free places, this is where you’ll never meet one:
