Edelmann is a good restaurant. I have been there two times before, trying a hamburger and a Brettljause, and both times I had good memories but am not completely certain what exactly they were.

It is the same this time. I really liked the goose – the cook truly knew how to spend fifteen minutes turning a pre-cooked bird into something that looked and tasted fresh. The skin was crispy; the meat was tender and juicy, and there was more than enough of it not to leave hungry. It looked like a goose; it smelled like a goose; it tasted like a goose; by all measures it was a goose.

It is a pity that the cabbage and the dumplings were only given a second thought. The cabbage tasted boringly industrial, and the dumplings tasted of nothing at all.

Edelmann is a good restaurant serving a good goose, but I find it hard to recommend it. This may have something to do with the fact that its location is quite inconvenient, and unless you live in the area, the effort required to reach it probably exceeds the satisfaction you will get at the end. On the other hand, if you live close by and like good geese, don’t miss this one.
