29. March 2010: Restaurant Cafe Boy

| March 30, 2010 | 0 Comments

The team from waskochen.ch held an event at the restaurant Cafe Boy for the Vernissage of their newly launched book “Salz & the City” where a selection of the top 76 recipes submitted by users of their homepage was collected. During the evening the guests had the possibility to try dishes from the book cooked by the chef of the restaurant Cafe Boy.

The restaurant Cafe Boy is located close to the Lochergut and therefore, easily reachable by public transportation (tram). It’s not really recommendable to come by car as the parking situation is not exactly satisfying.

The restaurant doesn’t look too appealing from the outside, especially as it isn’t really situated in a nice street. On the other hand, the perception really changes once you’ve entered the place. The inside is wide, open and spacy – still it provides somehow a cozyness you wouldn’t expect from such a wide place.

The waiters are very friendly and helpful – and although not comparable to a usual restaurant setting because of the event, it must be said, that they’re trying to be there for you and to take care of your special requests even though there was another approximately 200 people in the same room.

The different courses were served as little morsels. All in all, there were seven different courses: Wild garlic gnocchi with Parmesan as a first course which was quite good but unfortunately, you didn’t taste too much of the wild garlic (it was more for the green color than for the taste).

Following were a “Tarte Flambee with bacon” as well as a “Tarte Flambee with apples and rosemary” which were both good the way they’ve been made. Although the rosemary was very decent with the apple, it really was a good combination.

The “Bündner Birä-Ravioli” had a really special taste as the filling with pears is somehow unusual and unexpected but quite good too.

Finally, the fish “Samlet with radish sauce” was very good but the sauce itself was not really giving any added value to the dish – it even kind of spoiled it, I think. The “Gaucho-beef rump with wild mushrooms risotto” was extremly tasty on the other hand – the meat as well as the risotto.

In the end, we’ve had a “Chocolate cake” as a desert which was good too, but a little bit too dry.

The price-performance ratio isn’t applicable as the event was hosted and sponsered by the restaurant and waskochen.ch

All in all, the restaurant looks like a really nice place which should definitely been checked out once in a while – looking at the fact that the chef of the restaurant prepared all the dishes, the very nice atmosphere of the restaurant and the friendly waiters, the restaurant Cafe Boy is a good place to go!
