Le Ponyhof, Römerhof, Zurich

Soupe a l'oignon et le Club Poulet

Steak et frites avec beurre Café de Paris et Pommes allumettes

I confess since I have sinned. I let the Zueritipp beat me by a day in releasing a story on the Le Ponyhof restaurant at the Roemerhof. This is the pop-up/stand-in/temporary replacement of Bohemia, while it’s undergoing renovation. I called ahead to reserve a table and even though it was nice weather – they didn’t offer us a choice, but seated us inside. Now I can’t complain since if I do, my critical readers will call me out for calling in favors, hence I remained quiet. To make things interesting I ordered an onion soup and a small chicken club sandwich. I really liked the steak sauce which they served in a small condiment basket which went nicely with the decent club sandwich. The onion soup was lacking oomph and also the toasted piece of bread could have used a more exciting fermented milk topping. The steak frites was a wonderful piece of beef, which was expertly cooked. The small disappointment were the french fries – while nicely prepared and made of real potatoes – they were advertised as more delicate pommes allumettes which they definitely weren’t. Le Ponyhof prepares pretty decent food at advantageous prices:
