In Alsace, winemakers were accustomed to selling their production in “winstubs”, traditional wine bars that served a few simple dishes. Since then, the name designates a charmingly rustic restaurant, typical of the region. At the foot of Strasbourg Cathedral, Marché-aux-Cochons-de-Lait (meaning “suckling pig market”) Square is full of such establishments that are elegantly lost among the half-timbered houses. Among them, Pfifferbriader welcomes traditional food lovers in a discreet and warm atmosphere. Have a seat in the light of the winemakers whose life is displayed on colourful stained-glass windows. Start by tasting a potato pancake with smoked salmon and chive sour cream, followed by a slice of seared duck foie gras served on a bed of sauerkraut, then finish with a gingerbread crème brûlée. A Güeter! (“enjoy your meal” in Alsatian).
