With the exception of the tomato (the use of which was unclear -- was this a self-contained salad?), and the stuffing, this was a nice meal. The stuffing, unfortunately, really destroyed it for me. And,I think it was poor culinary planning: As it was not so bad by itself; but in combination it was ....in a word....disturbing.
Potatoes were good. The lingenberry (cranberry-like) and gravy were both rich and flavourful. The turkey was also quite nice and was very well complimented by both the richness of the gravy and the zest of the ~berry sauce.
However, the stuffing did not mix so well. When added to the turkey+sauces, the taste was rather disturbingly like e.coli smells. Now: I do trust that the food was properly cooked; and I am not about to suggest that I will become ill (still have up to 4 more days to confirm, though) -- but the combination of flavours/spices was strongly reminiscent of that sort of smell (remember the taste and smell are linked in the brain). After cleansing the palate a bit, the stuffing did not present so strongly. So, it was likely the combination of flavours for me. If any of the chefs are reading this, please check out the combinations and make the ingredients harmonize with one another.
The tea was disappointing for one reason: The cheap brand of bag used. This was evident in the length of time needed to steep; as well as the taste. Also, in a free-refills establishment, it was clear that those who take coffee were getting a much better bargain.
But the meal, itself, appears to offer good value.
Supplementary Information:Because of the queues, my served hot meal presented as lukewarm at the table. I ought to try this outside the busy time!!!
Disregard the rating for service in the case of this restaurant: You do it all yourself (except for serving of hot foods).
