Dini Mueter, Langstrasse, Zurich
Dini Mueter on Langstrasse rocks. After a rough evening I landed here for some breakfast and looking at the menu I got excited. On Saturday and Sunday they carry a breakfast dish called “Dini Mueter”, which is swiss german for your mother and is used in a football chant to imply to non FCZ supporters that she’s working in the adult entertainment industry on Langstrasse… Nevertheless they call out Dini Mueter as an Eggs Benedict dish. Now purists will argue that with the spinach thrown in, it’s neither Eggs Benedict nor Eggs Florentine, but at the end of the day as long as it’s delicious I don’t care. Free range, organic, poached eggs, served over toast, sauce hollandaise, bacon and some spinach – what else do you need for a breakfast ? Ovomaltine…
One small downside – the croissants on Sundays are horrible. Not a light and fluffy affair but a lumpy, doughy, heavy concotion halfmoonshape.
Nice place – we’ll be back – prices:
