Located by the Traunsee lake, Hois’n must be best known for its fresh fish (at least the menu creates that impression), so seeing quite a few entries under the heading “Jausen” was a nice surprise.
To summarize this particular Jause in one sentence, it’s Schweinsbraten decorated with Speck. Two thickly cut slices of cold pig must constitute 80% of the dish’s volume. Apart from that, there are two types of Speck – the drier one extremely good, the fatter one spoiled by some cartilage and well, fat – some plain cheese and a white creamy spread, which tastes quite nice on the bread.
There is also plenty of green stuff on the plate, as well as some rather tasteless horseradish and industrial mustard. All in all, it’s a non-exceptional Jause (taking a more expensive Speck-only plate could have been a better idea), but combined with the beautiful location, a very welcome one.
