Wow, wow, wow! What more can I say? Even though my last two posts were already about restaurants (here and here), the best is yet to come. I feel so enthused about this place, finally one I can wholeheartedly recommend. Something I probably shouldn’t do because then the restaurant will be packed and I will never get a table again. But it’s not something others haven’t done already (click here to read a professional review in German) and let’s be honest: my little review will not make a difference. Nonetheless I want to put in my two cents as well.
One week ago on Saturday was another get-together of the Tuscany round. Something we do fairly often, like every 4-6 weeks. We always go for dinner, mostly good and sometimes great. This time it was great (such a good choice Andi! Thank you again)!
The restaurant Duspara (no website so far) recently opened. The chef, called Danijel Duspara, has already cooked in different restaurants and has now opened his own place. I don’t want to lie to you, I have never heard of this guy before. But after that evening I will never forget him. I know I sound mental, but this dinner was like a revelation. Simple dishes in perfect execution!
The menu is small but with something for every taste. I ordered trout rillette which came with a salad and marinated fennel. The others ordered either turnip cabbage soup laced with anise or duck liver paté with a warm brioche and spiced quince.Everything tasted so good and it was so nicely presented! The most astonishing thing was the soup which sounded boring and was unbelievably good!
The main course was more diverse. We had pork, deer, char and liver. Everything was excellent and even though the side dishes look the same they were different, partly mashed potatoes, partly mashed parsnips.
Again everything was excellent, if I have one critique point it’s the blue plate for the char. It just doesn’t do the dish justice. The colors of the pea-mint purée and the red beets would pop so much more on a white plate.
For dessert we ordered a small choice of everything which turned out to be larger than expected. We had cheese cake (the real deal unlike here), mousse au chocolat and apple crumble. The crumble got a make-over and was served in individual portions. I like it better when it is juicier but my brother who usually forgoes the desserts finished them off!
Altogether the place is definitely worth a trip! I haven’t had such a good dinner in a very long time, plus prices are more than fair!
