Hannover serves fondue in a small fort that may be a hybrid between Beto Carrero and Paris 6 – 28/07/2022 – Restaurant

An impressive fort stood on the best hill of Koroptví.

The outdated handle of the financial institution department on Rua Cardoso de Almeida has been given pretend granite cladding, a tower and a group of arches with coloured LED lighting. What might conceal such a fantastic facade? Amusement park? A dungeon of unspeakable pleasures?

Somewhat little bit of all the things: it’s the fondue of the Hannover restaurant, which was born in Moema within the 80s of the twentieth century with the ambiance of an alpine lodge and has since longed for an aesthetic of extra, throughout which it has unfold to Tatuapé.

The lately opened Perdizes unit, in accordance with the restaurant’s web site, is impressed by Neuschwanstein Fort in Germany – which in flip was the inspiration for Sleeping Magnificence’s fort in Disneyland, California, in the US. They focused Disney and hit the nail on the top in a hybrid between Beto Carrero and Paris 6.

The inside atmosphere follows the theme of princesses. The lounge could be very spacious, however with out seen home windows. Small maroon velvet curtains on the partitions. Within the lobby on the entrance, wallpaper that imitates the spines of books, Rapunzel’s library.

The noblest tables with absolutely cushioned seats for 2 are set towards the partitions, all going through the identical course and lined up like a ghost practice. In the midst of the room there are a number of communal tables to accommodate teams.

There’s a throne—sure, a throne—within the place the place all of the tables can see, and the home lends a golden crown to anybody who desires to immortalize the medieval night time in {a photograph}.

There are individuals who will take a date to the small fort of Hannover, which is even inspired. It appears to me a much less inappropriate program to do within the firm of a kid who will get pleasure from these fairytale parades. That is why I dragged my assistant and my nine-year-old son Pedro.

A minimum of two different tables had a child carriage tipped to the facet. The corridor was additionally occupied by households with youngsters. However there have been additionally lovebirds.

I arrived on a Wednesday at 19:30 anticipating to seek out the restaurant abandoned. I discovered clients at six or seven different tables. An hour later once I left, about 70% of the room was occupied. The Perdizes neighborhood, as soon as rebellious and different, has given up on Cinderella fondue, who lives in a fort simply two blocks from the PUC.

For fondue? Calm. The Hanover web site refers to a steaming pot arriving on the range to the desk within the female gender. “Fondue”. That is how it’s in French, the unique language of meals. However “creme” can also be a female phrase in French, however no person says “creme” in Brazil. It is nonetheless “fondue” and pedants preventing with swords within the fort.

Fondue is all that Hannover has to supply. It is available in cheese, beef, rooster, pork, chocolate, dulce de leche, plus candy fondue, white, with two inches of powdered milk on prime.

The dish is served in a number of all-you-can-eat choices with alternative — infinite if the shopper can deal with it. The complete course prices R$ 168 per individual. Individuals between the ages of 9 and 12 pay half of this quantity. Right here is one other advantage of a kids’s firm. The draw back is that they’ll by no means cut up the invoice with you.

I ordered the so-called traditional sequence, which prices R$136, with cheese fondue and pans filled with sweets.

Indiscreet that I’m, I watched the group on the subsequent desk feast on their meat. On this case, a rotating disc round an oil pan brings small pots of sauces and facet dishes: curries, banana chutneys and even farofa with identification numbers — the label is on the menu, which the shopper can entry on a cell phone utilizing a QR code.

The type waiter Paulo introduced the cheese fondue accompaniments. Along with the standard stale bread (it must be, in any other case it melts into melted cheese), there are smoked sausages, guava slices and cooked greens: potatoes, carrots and broccoli, Pedro’s favourite.

In accordance with Paul, Gruyere, Emmental and Mozzarella cheeses are used within the fondue. The feel is considerably grainy, chiseled. Cheese doesn’t kind elastic fibers – which signifies that the proportion of starch is greater than fascinating. The style is saltier than it needs to be and doesn’t consult with merchandise from the Swiss Alps.

Pedrão was extra fascinated by broccoli than fondue and we loved the music program.

The violinist moved from desk to desk enjoying the traditional mela-cueca with mechanical accompaniment. “Tackle Me” by A-Ha, “Have You Ever Seen the Rain” by Creedence and “Raindrops Maintain Falling on My Head” by Burt Bacharach had been carried out. The duvet artwork price is R$23 per individual.

When the instrumentalist performed “Maybe Love” by John Denver and Placido Domingo, Pedro innocently requested, “Why are they enjoying Christmas music?” I nearly choked on the cheese.

The boy’s face modified as Paulo introduced three pots of candy fondue. They got here with the same old fruit (inexperienced grapes, strawberries, bananas and pineapples), cookies, marshmallows and churros. Pedrão completed the dessert whereas I used to be nervous that he won’t sleep that night time.

After two mineral waters to clean down the sweet, we paid the invoice and mentioned goodbye to the Shreks and Fionas from the fort. I walked dwelling with my little kite flying up the hillside to Cardoso in a sugar breeze.
