Schiwago

  Bertastrasse 76      (+41) 44 241 22 28     30 Jan 2019
Schiwago is a little off the beaten track in the Wiedikon district, but well worth the visit. The guest room here is decorated with a conglomeration of photos from around the world, deer antlers, some kind of shrine and even a perfume display box with a tiger pattern. Fancy and bizarre, this is the new kingdom of one of the city's most original culinary entrepreneurs, Christian Egger. He changes the menu regularly, but it always features some Swiss fair like roast beef, game (in season), cordon bleu and sometimes some more exotic dishes as well. Much to our pleasure, we found moules et frites on the menu, one of the classics that he's offered at his earlier endeavours. The sauce with butter, white wine and herbs was simply sublime. We also enjoyed the schupfnudeln (potato noodles) with mushrooms and the seasonal salad as a starter. And the panna cotta we had for dessert was so big, it easily served two. All in all, a laudable establishment that differs from the chic, safe and more generic restaurants of the city centre, but bring cash as Schiwago doesn't accept credit cards!
