I drove along backroads through several small towns, passing by farmlands and vineyards to get to this cozy cabin-in-the-woods feeling restaurant. I felt like I made at least five wrong turns en route and was completely turned around, but luckily, I had my aunt with me to show me the way. This restaurant had the kind of Swiss homestyle cooking I was looking to try on my visit (and worth the challenge to find).
As soon as you walk in, the crackle of the röschti frying and the smell of these savory potato pancakes welcomes you. It was hard to pick which röschti to eat because they have quite a large selection, but I ultimately settled on a breakfast-for-dinner classic: onion and egg. After eating, we finished our wines (I recommend trying a locally produced red) but I couldn't finish my plate, and thus began an intense cultural debate between my family members: whether or not to take away. In the end, I lost the battle and I left the restaurant empty handed. I was sad, until my aunt promised to show me how easy it is to make röschti the next day (and it is!)
