Gasthaus Kuglhof

Kuglhof is one the most quaint places to reside for a meal, especially during the quiet hours of Friday lunch time. It is on the outskirts of town (near the Hangar-7), so good location for days which you are transferring to the airport.

It it situated in the middle of fields, the backdrop grandeur of the Untersberg mountains behind, make this feel even more cosy. The decorations are tastefully seasonal, and the menu is quite extensive, presenting traditional dishes in slightly more fancy manor.

On this particular Friday afternoon, this dish was on the daily lunch menu. It was Topfenschmarrn, which is very similar in look and taste to Kaiserschmarrn, but it uses Topfen (Quark) instead. This gives it a more flan-like texture, and in this particular case, didn’t pick up the butter crispiness in the same way. It was served with cherry jam – a lovely change from the usual puree, and the sour and sweet dual flavour that came out of this complimented the plain taste of the pancake. The added fruit and icing sugar was a great touch, giving this dish overall variation and combinations of great flavours.

Although I would opt for the original Kaiserscharrn over Topfenschmarrn, I truly liked Kuglhof’s take on the dish, and would happily embrace a Friday Topfenschmarrn afternoon again!
