14. July 2013: Restaurant Les Rochats

| July 25, 2013 | 0 Comments

It is years ago I have last eaten snails so I figured it was about time to try them again so I ordered a plate of six “Escargote” (CHF 10.50). Nothing much has changed since I ate them last: they do not taste like much but like the sauce they’re served in only this time it was not really this usual garlic sauce but some combination of garlic and onion sauce which was definitely very tasty!


The “Entrecôte de boeuf avec beurre café de paris avec legumes et frites” (beef entrecôte with Café de Paris, vegetables and French fries; CHF 35.00) was astonishingly good (wihch might also have been triggered by the fact that it was basically bathing in herb butter!


Something very typical for this area is absinth – so I had to try the “Coupe de fée vert” (CHF 10.50; pistachio ice cream with absinth). It is damn boozy! Only if you stir it quite a bit up with the icecream it actually gets this very enjoyable taste!


The place is very simple but also quite nice and provides you with a perfectly relaxing atmosphere in the sun. The service is friendly and competent but incredibly slow. I actually started thinking at this point that maybe it depends on the area in which you are – I mean I never experience quick service in the French speaking part of Switzerland!

Overall, the Restaurant Les Rochats is definitely a nice place to come to if you are in the area anyway. On the other hand, if you are not, then I would not really recommend you driving here. It is not that good!

I started the blog in October 2009, while living in Milan which I definitely consider to be one of the food capitals of the world. I was in touch with food since my early childhood (as my father is a former chef). Whenever I can, I travel the world to discover new places, to meet people but mostly to try local dishes and to find hidden gems! If you know a place worth going, please drop a line to: info@thediningexperience.org. Currently, I am a member of the following food-related associations: Chevalier @Chaîne des Rôtisseurs Zurich-Ville; Membre Gourmet Dégustateur @Ordre Mondial des Gourmets Dégustateurs [OMGD]; Gesellschafter @Goldener Fisch and Member @Slowfood Convivium Zurich City.
