Zurich – Simply good means, the chef of the gamper restaurant uses very good local and seasonal products. This 5-course surprise menu also makes it easier for the non-fussy eater: you can immediately enjoy the aperitif and do not waste time studying the menu.
The menu costs 83 CHF and you can order wine by the glass, if you prefer to taste several wines.
That evening, I was most excited about the second course. It consisted of blue mashed potato, in the middle lay a “1-hour egg” which was topped by sweet potato froth, simply delicious. But also all the other dishes that came out of the kitchen were absolutely my taste: Leek terrine with mushrooms, salsify with truffel, pig neck with sauerkraut (probably one of the best I ever had) and a dessert (you can choose between cheese or something sweet).
This time I will not say, that you have to reserve, because you can not reserve. So it’s best to come around 7pm or again at around 9pm to get a table.
