Pfifferbriader, the charming winstub of Strasbourg

From its name alone, Pfifferbriader – “flute players” in Alsatian – traces the history of storytellers and jugglers who entertained nobles during seigniorial meals in the Middle Ages.

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 Kartoffelpuffer, a potato pancake stuffed with Munster cheese and fried onions or with lardons and baked Emmental cheese for instance, followed by stir-fried pike-perch served in Riesling sauce and spaetzle (typical regional noodles) or a sauerkraut with cold cuts, the famous emblem of Alsatian gastronomy. Finish the meal with an apple streusel with cinnamon and vanilla ice cream. A Güeter! ("enjoy your meal" in Alsatian).
