We started our multi-course meal with the Apero Platter, which consisted of savory dried meats and alp cheeses.
While in Switzerland, I wanted nothing more than to eat fondue!
With my potatoes and basket of fresh bread, I was ready to dip!
The cheese was absolutely delicious! It wasn’t just the traditionally-served Swiss cheese fondue; this version was loaded with flavor! I had herb cheese on one side and tomato flavored cheese on the other. Both were incredible!
Sam had the beef sirloin steak, which he proclaimed was “the best steak he has ever had’. The cut is partially cooked and then brought out on a hot stone. You decide how much you want the meat cooked; just start eating when it reaches your desired internal temperature.
The steak was served with a variety of traditional and unique sauces. Sam tried each and every one and said the curry and garlic butter were his favorites.
It was quite the delicious feast!
Next time you find yourself in or near Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland, I highly recommend you stop by Hotel Schützen and enjoy a meal in the restaurant! Trust me… your taste buds will thank you!
