      Rheinfelder Bierhaus: Pork and noodles (2013)

I visited the Rheinfelder Bierhaus twice with VT members. The first time in October 2011 and the second visit was in May 2013. Among locals the place is also known as Bloody Thumb (De Bluetig Duume).

The Rheinfelder Bierhaus is a mixture of a Swiss beer hall and a restaurant with traditional and hearty meals. Day specials are available as well. The interior of the restaurant is held in a simple wooden style. On summer days a few tables are available on the street.

In October 2011 I opted for a Swiss Cordon Bleu with fries for 23,50 CHF and a local Cardinal beer for 6,20 CHF.

In May 2013 I ordered pork schnitzel with noodles from the day specials. It was accompanied by a yummy bouillon as starter. With 21,50 CHF the menu was reasonably priced.

On both my visits service was quite quick and my dishes were filling and tasty. Waiters can be a bit rough, but that seems to be a local custom.

The Rheinfelder Bierhaus is probably one of the cheaper options in Zurich's city centre, therefore it is higly recommended for budget travellers who like to enjoy the local atmosphere of the place.
