Zür Post!

The last few years, Peter & I dine & wine in the 1 Michelin starred restaurant called Zür Post in the center of Sankt Vith. This is in the German-speaking part of Belgium. This is a smaller cosy modern restaurant located in the center, in the head street of the lovely town of Sankt Vith. We go there once a year in Summertime with my parents. We chose a 1 night stay & have booked the wine & dine arrangement. This includes 1 night in a hotel room included is per person: a 7 course menu surprise + wine arrangement + 1 night in a hotel room + breakfast! There are several arrangements to choose from. This is the chef & his lovely wife:

My mom & I chose not to take the wine with our 7 course dinner but we chose to have a glass of champagne in the beginning. The chef works seasonal & with the best ingredients. He is very modern in his cooking style. His wife is a very charming woman. It is a 1 Michelin starred restaurant & has 16/20 in the guide Gault & Millau. It is worth the money! You can book several different arrangements. You choose, it is up to you. The prices are a bit more high but not overpriced because of his 1 Michelin star! A cool modern interior! It is the best 1 Michelin starred restaurant that I have ever visited!!! A BIG PLUS & A MUST!!! We all had dinner in the lovely garden set with beautiful modern white tables & silverware! 😉

Let’s see what I am talking about in my photo’s!

I haven’t got photos from the champagne & appetizers!!!

1st course! This was raw smoked swordfish on a bed of green lentils, tomato & red onion pieces, a bit of chili & topped with fried rice noodles: very fresh & light! Perfect to begin with! 🙂

2nd course: Salmon Trout flambé from the valley of the Ourthe with a sweet & sour ratatouille & a tomato broth! Delicious! Every flavor goes so well together & is light in the mouth! 🙂

3rd course: Soft Turbot wrapped into kataifi, (this is a very fine vermicelli like pastry normally used for Middle-Eastern deserts) with spring onions, a rhubarb sauce with black pepper.

4th course: Ravioli filled with Chanterelle mushrooms, duck’s liver & sliced summer’s truffles in a chanterelle broth & sauce. I am not fond of duck’s liver at all so I didn’t eat that. I thought that this as more of an autumnal dish but my parents & Peter loved it all! 🙂

5th course: Veal from the Limousin region with flavors saltimbocca, (perfect in temperature & cuisson), with a lovely risotto with sage oil & with candied tomatoes. A pretty plate & beautiful on the tongue too! 🙂

6th course: My Peter & dad took the cheese platter. It looked like this:

My mom & I received an alternative for this & it was worth it: flammkuchen! It was superb in flavor, a bit salty, with the bacon & melted cheese, sweet with the green grapes & a bit sweet-sour with the mango onion chutney! yum!

Then we all got a lovely interlude to the dessert: small but very rich! It was a sort of delicate filled praline with a praliné ganache on the inside with crushed lime-pistachio flavors on the outside! Waw! Super rich & perfect in flavors! Waw!

7th course: The piece de résistance! Ha! A sort of yoghurt with blueberries on a bed of white wine jelly & with an espuma of vanilla! On top of it, were dried apple slices, dried chocolate beetroot slices! This was the best dessert ever! So light too! 🙂 So modern!

Afterwards, we took tea & coffee in the modern salon inside. We got also lovely pralines to choose from. No photo tough! 😦

2 photos from the breakfast the next morning!

So, this gourmet experience was so worth it! The couple & staff are super friendly & kind. the food is out of this world! Light & fine dining! Here is their lovely website in english: Zür Post!
