Hummer-Austen Bar, Zürich

For my evening in Zurich, I opted to have my sweet third course at a different establishment. Progressive dinners aren’t quite as much of a thing here. And there’s usual some bemusement when  I inevitably get asked to explained. This is generally followed by an “ahh, that makes sense”. Of the dessert options at the upmarket Hummer-Austen Bar I went for the humble Tarte Tartin (19Fr). This version is made from scratch and the delay was a bit hefty. The restaurant being mostly vacant as well. Still, I was pleased when it arrived. A perfectly crisp pastry with wonderfully caramelised fruit slices that sat underneath a scoop of margarita ice-cream. The flakes of the pastry were buttery and melted in your mouth with the contrast of the not-overly-sweet dairy confection. Worth the wait.
