Cheap lunch offering – decent but nothing extraordinary: Restaurant Farnsburg (25. July 2017)

| October 27, 2017 | 0 Comments

Whenever I’m eating in another city than Zurich in Switzerland I realize how expensive things are. For only CHF 25.50, you get quite a bargain for lunch starting with a salad which is rather standard though to be honest.

The “grilled beef entrecôte served with a Sauce Hollandaise with French fries and vegetables” is better than expected. The thing is, I didn’t expect anything really but it turns out that the meat is surprisingly good. However, the sauce itself is rather blunt and the vegetables are also more from the pre-made corner than anything else.

The “chocolate mousse” which was part of the menu is quite dense but tastes acceptable. So, while the food is nothing like extraordinary at all, the price you pay kind of levels this off. I mean, for only CHF 25.50 you get a starter, a main with decent meat, and a dessert.

Besides the already lower price for the menu, the price for the beverages definitely is lower – CHF 8.50 for 1l San Pellegrino is definitely 2 CHF less than in Zurich. The service is friendly and also surprisingly swift – especially given that the restaurant was quite full at the time. While I had booked a table for two and we turned out to be four in the end, they weren’t flexible enough to accommodate us inside but sat us outside and it was quite chilly. Overall, the atmosphere is so so – it isn’t really that appealing. So, according to TripAdvisor the Farnsburg belongs to the five best restaurants in Liestal. Well, the price performance ratio is okay as it is rather cheap but other than that, it isn’t really high up on my list.

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!
