Wursthaus Switzerland is a new casual dining restaurant in Paya Lebar Quarter serving sausages and rosti as well as Swiss meatloaf, rostisserie chicken, sandwiches, soups, salads, tarts and desserts. It is an affordable restaurant in a convenient location to enjoy Swiss cuisine in Singapore.
There are many restaurants and cafes that started operations in Paya Lebar Quarter or PLQ since August (see our post of 30 August 2019). Even more F&B outlets have opened for business by the time of the official opening of Paya Lebar Quarter (PLQ) on 24 October 2019. Wursthaus Switzerland is one of the several new restaurants that have just opened at the end of October.
The casual dining restaurant is located on the road level of PLQ Mall just opposite Starbucks. The place is not big and has a contemporary relaxed atmosphere. There are bar counter seats and a few high bar tables.
Wursthaus Switzerland in PLQ Mall is a self service restaurant. There is an automatic ordering kiosk but was not yet in operation when we visited the restaurant. Orders and payments are made at the cashier’s counter. You collect your food and drinks when the number on your receipt is flashed on the screen above the cashier’s counter. A problem with the current arrangement is that the screen showing the order number cannot be seen by most of those seated on one of the counter seats. The issue should be easily rectified by adding one or two strategically placed screens.
Wursthans Switzerland Menu
According to MySwitzerland website, “Swiss cuisine combines influences from the German, French and North Italian cuisine” and typical dishes include raclette, rösti and a variety of sausages. In multi-lingual Switzerland, dishes can be called by different names. For example, the traditional sausage produced in Switzerland with a mix of beef, pork and pork rind, bacon and seasonings, is called Cervelas in the French-speaking part of Switzerland, Cervelat in the German-speaking part, and Servelat in the Italian-speaking part.
Cervelat and Bratwursts feature prominently in the menu of Wursthans Switzerland. However, the menu has adequate variety as grilled meats, chicken, savoury tarts and soups are also available. Below are pictures of pages of the Wursthans Switzerland Menu.
Wursthans Switzerland Meals
We ordered two meals at Wursthans Switzerland in PLQ Mall – the Swiss Veal Sausage Meal ($16.90 plus a$1.50 addon) and the Swiss Meatloaf Meal ($11.90).
The Swiss Meatloaf Meal consisted of a meatloaf sandwich with salad and iced elderflower tea. The iceberg lettuce was really crunchy and refreshing. A large slice of meatloaf was between the lightly toasted ciabatta bread. The meatloaf tasted like a denser version of luncheon meat. It was flavourful and enjoyable. Adding a little mustard enhanced the taste.
