according to : http://www.toytowngermany.com/wiki/Stammtisch
The word Stammtisch is German. It is not easily translated into English but it means something like “regular’s table” or “regular get-together”.
Literally speaking, the word Stammtisch is a table in a bar or restaurant which is reserved for the same guests at the same time every day or every week. There is usually a sign on the table saying “Stammtisch”. If you don’t belong to this table, don’t attempt to sit there! In the most traditional German beer halls there is a large brass plaque above the table with the word Stammtisch printed on it in bold lettering.
Well, we went to Stammtich at 6th avenue last saturday night with Prof. Peter Ellinger, Anton (my boss) and Amy (my boss’ wife). So, it were 5 of us… We are not regular there, and not sure we will be regular enough to be considered as regular =p Anyway, it was an invitation by Prof. Ellinger and recommended place by Anton.
Anton brought us there to taste Cheese Fondue… (I seen and ate chocolate fondue, but when I heard cheese fondue, I was thinking, how much cheese will that be…), he said, it was the best cheese fondue in town. Well, I believe at Anton’s taste. He had proven himself that his suggestion almost 80%, I will love it too 🙂
So, we reached there, the place looks old but cozy and according to Anton, a lot of regular customer goes there. Well, he might be right, there are a lot of people there and they just chat like at their own house, then I think at 1 of the table were friends of the cook.
enough about the place… now about the food…
Beside cheese fondue, they also have beef fondue.. this make me even confuse, how are we going to make fondue out of beef…., so let me explain now…
- Cheese fondue : melted cheese (I don’t know how many type of cheese) + wine (you can ask to have without it) + some liquor (I don’t know the name) in a constantly heated pot, and bread for you have it covered with the cheese and eat it.
- Beef fondue : good beef meat cut into cubes, then a constantly heated pot, 1/2 pot filled with cooking oil. You just stick the beef meat in a metal stick, deep the meat, then take it out according to your liking – done, medium, raw-
- Beef tartar : raw high quality beef minced and mixed with spices
so, we ordered cheese fondue for 3 and beef fondue for 2 (we end up order 1 more portion), salad, potato, and beef tartar.
I can say, I loved everything except for the cheese fondue, I find it too rich for me (I don’t really like the after taste of cheese and milk), but ditz loves everything, especially the cheese fondue… she just loving it….
So, I ate more of the beef, she ate more of the cheese, good for us =)
The beef meat for the beef fondue, somehow was very soft yet very fresh.. even when I ate it rare (so just fried for a while), it’s very soft and it’s like melting in your mouth…
The beef tartar was also very good (a bit different with what I had in holland, but both are good and they somehow are different in type).
So, might go back to that place again next time with my family or friend… never tried at other place, but until I know other place, I might go back there again…
not sure about the damage because we didn’t got a chance to look at the bill, but if ditz remembered it correctly from the menu, it should be around SGD 25++ for cheese fondue for 1, and SGD 18++ for beef fondue for 1, then SGD 18++ for the beef tartar.
