Restaurant Kornhaus, Limmatplatz, Zurich

Restaurant Kornhaus

Gemischter Salat

Schweinskotelette mit Pommes Frites

Right next to Limmatplatz the Restaurant Kornhaus has been around for a long time. Dated interior, faded trinkets which have hung in smoke for decades and patrons who have come to accept that they’re not allowed to smoke anymore. There is one absolut classic I always have when dining in Swiss restaurants, that’s the Gemischter Salat (mixed salad). This simple dish really shows the passion and skill of the kitchen. All the components were homemade and the sauce was okay, so it exactly matched my expectations. Interesting enough, the place has also invested in corporate identity and is showing off some neat coasters. For smokers, there’s a fumoir outside, which seems cozy enough even for winter. Since I went for a run in the morning, I allowed myself to indulge on the main course. Pork chops, with herb foam and french fries was the heart warming combination. Now the fries (of the curly kind) looked like they’ve come out of the freezer, but any mushiness was successfully fried out of them. Pork chop was drenched in the herb foam (unclear what herbs) and a tad dry. Nevertheless, I got exactly what I wanted, my expectations where met and this is a perfect example for swiss authentic dining. Compare it to a past-its-prime diner serving fat comfort food somewhere in the US. Prices were cheap for five people:
