Gertrudhof (new opening), Gertrudstrasse, Zurich

Gemischter Salat

Scharfer Paul Cordon Bleu mit Roeschti

The Gertrudhof has been reopened again with new proprietors (Pre-previous and Previous). The concept is the same, with a focus on Cordon bleu. The good thing is that the menu offers a couple more variants than before. Prices are roughly the same, so no change in that area either. The mixed salad I had was a bit disappointing. The carrots were from a can or plastic bag bought at a Cash & Carry and weren’t prepared freshly. You could also clearly taste the Maggi on the sauce which gives points for swissness, but deductions for taste. The previous owner did a much better job on the salad and you could clearly taste more love. The cordon bleu was a Hot Paul variant, I didn’t get much heat but the mixture was spicy and paired nicely with the cheese. The roeschti wasn’t bad, but I would have preferred more crips, less butter and smaller strips. Overall I’m happy to see that there is still a real swiss beiz in the Gertrudhof doing good cordon bleus, some more attention to detail would be welcomed.

    Well, maybe they read your blog, I had no carrots in my mixed salad, but it was lovely, with potatoes, Randen, Sellerie and all definitely homemade. Cordon-Bleu was really good! I had a “Mini” Size and I couldn’t finish it. Tip: If more then one person from the group orders a Cordon-Bleu, cut it in half first and check if you really got yours. I ended up starting my friends and had to eat salami and garlic for my first bite. Service really nice, this is exactly what I expect from a Quartierbeiz.
