Zeughauskeller is a very well known Swiss beer hall among locals and tourists. It is so well-known that the restaurant is smart enough to have menus in several languages for its many visitors. I had the chance to eat here after my day trip to Bern with Iz. We were quite lucky because even though we were without reservations, we were able to get a table after about a 30 minute wait.
We got some of their draft beers to start. I got their house beer – Zeughauskeller (the middle one). It was described as an amber coloured beer, especially brewed for Zeughauskeller and traditionally fermented 5.2% Turbinenbrau Zurich. It was really nice!
What’s Switzerland without its sausages? Zeughauskeller has a full page of sausages from around the country for the discerning customer. After having tried the cervelat previously, I went for the Augustiner Schüblig which is a traditional smoked pork and beef sausage from eastern Europe. As with most dishes, it was served with homemade potato salad – so good….
If you’re looking for hearty Swiss food, Zeughauskeller is definitely the place to consider. A note about the service though… The waiter assigned to our table actually spilled a bottle of water on me while he was clearing my table. My bag and shorts were drenched. However, the waiter just muttered a quick apology and walked away. Didn’t get any extra napkins to clean up myself. Thank god it was just water, but the curt response was a little shocking!
