Heritage Hallstatt Restaurant was my first dinner during my trip to Eastern Europe last July.
It was supposed to be a three course dinner but I was so full after my entree that I asked to skip dessert. Extremely unlike me, but I was by myself and I don’t like wasting food. I guess even the host and server were surprised when I asked them to cancel it.
They accommodated my vegetarian request very nicely. It’s been over a year and the notes I’d made while eating are gone with my iPhone (unless I’m able to recover it, in which case I’ll update here), but can’t recollect what the soup was.
Soup – smooth, creamy, soupy. Sundried tomatoes add such a tang and meatiness. Chives are a great garnish for the taste and presentation. Only thing is that I couldn’t tell is the zucchini. But I was digging it, since it has been quite cold out and I got only summer clothes which is my mistake. I was busy and lazy to do anything on that.
For my main course, they had a big plate of ratatouille, with polenta, garnished with micro-greens. The vegetables were nicely done and the polenta was too good, soft insides and browned exterior.
Not wanting to waste food, I asked them to skip the dessert, if they could. The polenta more than filled me up, along with the hearty vegetables. The mushrooms were smooth, but overall there was a slight bitterness.
This, being downed with a nice glass of red peppery wine to gorgeous views. It was a great dinner.
