Restaurant Review: Jungs, Windsor
Working in Windsor, you are spoil for choice over where you can go for lunch.
Jungs is German and Swiss influence offering a wide variety of bread and bakery products. It has a bright orange front. Walking in there is a long counter selling bakery products and take out sandwiches to the right. As you walk further in you see the restaurant tables towards the back. A wide selection of cuckoo clocks on the wall and chime on the hour.
The menu they offer has a large selection of foods to choose from, including breakfast foods, sandwiches, cheeseburgers, hotdogs, rostis and flatbread pizza. As I’ve worked in Windsor for ten months now, I have been a few times for lunches. The restaurant has a long counter for takeaway products, including sandwiches and flatbreads.
The first time I went, I was craving home cooked food. Had the fish finger sandwich, this was in brown brad and was served with lettuce, tomatoes, tartar sauce and with chips. It came out on a wood chip board. This is what I certainly needed, as fish finger sandwiches are the best home cooked foods! It tasted like a simple classic cooked well.
The second time I went I had the salmon, beetroot and caper salad with a tart lemon dressing and rye bread. This was my favorite out of the meals I have had there. The smoked salmon was fresh and cut through the salad on top. I loved the capers giving it a salty taste. The rye brad was fresh, soft and delicious but felt like it was too much. This meal was great to have on a hot summer day.
The last time I went for a potato rosti topped off with tomatoes, black pudding and a poached eggs. For me this was a more a brunch style meal, but was a classic. The black pudding was cubed, went well with the potato rosti. However the tomatoes was lacking and didn’t provide a sauce so made it slightly dry. The egg was not as runny and felt like it was cooked under the hot plate.
The only downside I would say about Jungs is that the service is hit and miss and is not always predictable. It can take more than 30mins to be served food especially if there is more than four of you there. I have taken out takeaways and found these to be very quick service, if ordering from counter.
Though the service is hit and miss, their has been some delicious food. I would recommend this restaurant as a brunch spot for breakfast on a lazy day.
