If you leave Zurich and take the train to a small cow filled town called Zug, you will find yourself in a place with buildings dated back to the 1300s and a gorgeous lake front view with a sweeping mountain range in the backdrop. Switzerland is indeed grandiose from its lakes, to its mountains and most importantly to its food. One evening I found myself in a gorgeous Austrian restaurant, Zum Kaiser Franz im Rossl, in the heart of old town Zug, a few feet away from Lake Zug with an owner eager to please and some delicious Swiss-Austrian food.
Burrata with heirloom tomatoes- The acidity of the heirloom tomatoes and the hints of spice in the salsa verde is perfectly paired with the burrata.
Local perch from Lake Zug- The perch grilled in butter was delicious and the fish itself was fresh. I enjoyed the sautéed spinach and appreciated that it was cooked simply and did not overpower the fish. Although I am missing the potatoes in this post, the potatoes were boiled and tossed with salt, pepper, butter, some cilantro and made the perfect accompaniment to the fish and spinach!
