Sternen in Wangen sounds like a pretty normal restaurant somewhere in the uncharted areas around Dübendorf. But I was in for a pleasant surprise. Treating myself to a glass of champagne I opted for adapting the regular menu to get a good feel for the chef’s ability. You can look at at all the tibits – what was memorable that on the Jerusalem Artichoke soup was served with lobster medallions. The soup initself was so good that it didn’t even need the lobster. Also a very strong showing of skill was the beef filet with female baker’s potatoes. Now I was so thrilled that I forgot to take a picture but the potatoes were so good that I fell in love with the preparation. It goes to show that if a chef has the basics down square he can elevate classic dishes to a whole new level. Also if you consider what I drank and ate – 190 CHF is not over the top (obviously not an everyday meal):

      iPhone 4 , no flash. Seems to be somewhat ok since its not too obvious. If I wouldnt care about discretion Id use a real camera.

    Agree. Your pics are absolutely ok. There is no need for a real camera (yet).
