Stuttgart Blackforest Boutique S-Café
Filed in best german restaurants | March 28, 2016
As the name implies, Blackforest cake is the major crowd puller of this good German restaurant and café. Germans do love their cakes as much as the French love their breads and sweets. Thus, it isn’t surprising to have a whole café named after Black Forest, a mountain range in Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany which also happens to be popular for its gourmet cuisine. But what else should you expect from Stuttgart?
- Authentic Blackforest cake (S$12/slice): Taste-wise, it is something you’d write home about. The cake is moist, light, layered with cream and then covered with chocolate shavings. But what truly gives this dessert the punchy flavour is its alcoholic content derived from the double-distilled cherry brandy. Definitely a quick fix for your liqueur-based dessert!
- Plenty of beers and liqueurs: The beers are generally sourced from Black Forest and Stuttgart, not necessarily in Bavaria, so there’s a good break for you to catch up on other German beer brands, especially when it’s that time of the year again for Oktoberfest (Hello, free-flow of beers!). Although the prices don’t come cheap at S$10++/0.5L, the chance to drink up these imported goods first-hand is going to be worth it.
- Unusual wine list: If you’re an adventurous wine-taster, rose and ice wines from Baden-Wurttemberg might struck a melody to your ears! But if you’re not there for the wine alone make sure to ask for the waiter’s recommendation if such a wine is indeed a good pair to certain dishes, as they might not complement each other.
