Burgwies, Forchstrasse, Zurich

Gemischter Salat

Cordon Bleu mit Rösti

A longer tram ride from the center of Zurich leads to the Restaurant Burgwies. Being my boring old self in the Swiss Beiz I order a mixed salad and the Cordon bleu with Rösti. It seems that the restaurant supply has a sale on cress – again a mound was placed on my otherwise pretty average mixed salad. The funny thing is that my co-diner’s order got mixed up and instead of a regular Cordon bleu he received something called the “Cordon Pneu” (literally tire). Which is a 500 gram monster version not for the faint of the heart. Mine was smaller, nicely cooked and no oozing cheese. I was actually able to select the ham and the cheese which was a nice touch of my mid-sized Cordon bleu (300g). Overall a nice well rounded Cordon bleu with the regular ham and the Gruyere cheese. The Rösti had a good texture, would have liked a bit more butter. Prices are on the higher side for a Beiz on the outskirts of Zurich:
