A colleague and I went to Blaue Gans yesterday and had the very reasonable prix fix lunch. At $20 it was a steal.
We started with the goulash soup, which was as good as any I've ever had. It was very flavorful and full of meat and paprika.
We went on to a fried chicken entre with potato salad and lingonberries. That might sound a bit IKEAish, but the chicken was so well fried that it was something of a revalation. It wasn't a bit greasy, but had a clean flavor. It bodes well for the schnitzel.
The meal ended with, what else, strudel with schlag. This strudel was as good as any I've ever had in any European stadt cafe, with hints of caramel and tart, crisp apples.
I'm looking forward to getting back there soon, maybe for breakfast.
