1. April 2011: Restaurant Hagstein

| April 8, 2011 | 0 Comments

As a starter we were served a mixed-leaf salad with balsamico dressing and planed grana cheese accompanied by homemade bread. The salad and the dressing were okay, the grana cheese wasn’t bad in taste but somehow – as for me grana cheese is the cheap brother of parmesan cheese – it wasn’t overwhelming in taste. Overall, a sound starter though. The homemade bread was extremly tasty (so you almost got addicted).

As a main course we had a “farmer’s pan” with duck, knuckle of veal, bread dumplings, red cabbage, and vegetables. The meat was pretty tasty and the dumplings were quite too. The vegetables didn’t taste like too much but to be honest, I didn’t try much of them as I’m not so much into cooked carrots. The red cabbage was rich in taste and the sauce which was served with the “farmer’s pan” was good as well although a bit dull.

As a desert we were served curd dumplings with nut crumbs on a plum roaster. The desert was pretty tasty but also pretty heavy – especially after the rather large main course.

The atmosphere of the restaurant is pretty nice as the entire place is held in wood and it provides you with a nice and comfortable feeling. It’s pretty much a cottage in the mountains and that’s exactly how you feel when you’re there. The service is friendly, helpful and nice and doesn’t bother but always ensures that everything needed is on your table.

All in all, if you are somewhere up there close to the restaurant, it’s a good place to enjoy a hearty Austrian meal. Otherwise, I wouldn’t go up there for the dishes.

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!
