Ehrendingen is the small nearly 5’000 inhabitant village where we live. All the main services are granted as usual in Switzerland (supermarket, post office, pharmacy, etc.), including some local restaurants.
And when I say “local” I mean… very Swiss: Wienerschnitzel and French fries being one of the main and most exciting dishes!
But today at lunch we found a restaurant which is really a pearl: the restaurant is old (it was a Piemontese restaurant, “Heimat”) but it was re-opened two months ago! And now it is based on international flavours with Asian and African influences. All with great presentation of the dishes, marvelous tastes and perfumes and unique recipes. All made by the young and friendly cook Tim, who was working before in a one-Michelin-star restaurant in Basel! I have been living in the Confederation for 15 years but, when eating outside, I never felt the real joy which only special recipes or extraordinary meals can give you!
Congratulations to the new crew of this reborn restaurant! If you are passing by Ehrendingen, a meal in the Heimat is really worthy! Heimat, like homeland…
But don’t worry: The tastes you will experience in this nice restaurant have nothing to do with its Swiss… “homeland”!
