Strunk is a hidden gem in the Murifeld quarter in the east of town. It is located in a charming old building in a residential area. It’s not just the building that is charming, but also the team, the atmosphere and the concept of the restaurant.
The main focus of the restaurant lies on locally and organically sourced ingredients, which are preserved to save them from going to waste. Those preserves find their way to a beautifully composed and colorful brunch buffet on Saturdays and dinners during the summer months. A selection of the preserves can be bought on spot or online, making a great gift.
I am always very pleased with the inventive dishes and the matching natural wines, which are on offer at Strunk. It is an awesome place to break out of the routine and to savor their creative concoctions in almost enchanted surroundings. The garden is a highlight during the warmer months.
Also, if you are into fermenting and pickling, you can attend one of their workshops to learn more about preserves and create your own. I found the fermenting course entertaining and straightforward. I left the course very inspired and with plenty of ideas.
This is a small and cozy place, with limited opening times. It’s therefore compulsory to make a reservation.
