swiss rösti and landjaegers

rollins | Mar 20, 2003 03:17 PM

went to the swiss food court at grand central (Vanderbilt Hall, where they have the Xmas shops every year), wow it is pretty cool. Try to go during the alpenhorn recitals (see web site below).

To me, German and Swiss food is comfort food. In these war-charged times I miss the stability and neutrality of Switzerland (I rode out the 9/11 attacks in Zürich and worried about the windows being open in my apt.).

Anyway, they are selling two landjaeger sausages for five bucks; a ripoff, but boy are they good. Whenever I land in a German-speaking country I head straight for the nearest Gas 'n' Sip 'n' Stop 'n' Qwickie Mart to load up on these (conveniently sold at the market in the Tegelhof airport in Berlin, in case you can't wait until the autobahn).

Where are they getting these in NY? Surely they're not flying them over. Anyone tried the German markets in Yorkville?

Finally, where can I get a good swiss rösti (spelled 'rosti' for anyone searching the site)? I know Roetelle A.G. is closed, but I don't want fancy swiss food, anyway. I want one part Waffle House Redi-Shred Hash Browns, and one part Bavarian Roadside Wurstel Stand. Any ideas?
