Original Allgäu Kässpatzen are my favourite dish to have in this colder season of the year. Luckily there is a Restaurant in the northern part of the Allgäu region in Bavaria that I really like, and their Allgäuer Kässpatzn with a side salad are just too good: Restaurant Forelle Dorschhausen in Bad Wörishofen. This restaurant is located in Bad Wörishofen, a place that is famous for the water-cure (hydrotherapy) developed by Sebastian Kneipp, a Catholic priest, who lived there for 42 years. It’s not far away from the Autobahn connecting Munich with Memmingen and in that direction Ulm, Stuttgart, Frankfurt and more. The house specialty is trout, what’s also the name of the Restaurant (Forelle in english is trout).
The Allgäu Kässpatzen are sereved in a clay pot and before you get a small mixed salad. The portion of the normal sized is the one you see below, so if your appetite is not that big I can highly recommend choosing the smaller portion. The prices are very reasonable at Restaurant Forelle Dorschhausen in Bad Wörishofen and the big portion Kässpätzle with a side salad is around 9 euros, for the small portion with a smaller side salad around 7 euros. What I really like about traidional Kässpatzen, or Kässpätzle, depending on the region you are, is that there have to be stings of cheese when you are eating it. Plus, the onions need to be crispy and the cheese should be a some Emmental or a similar ‘stinky cheese’. Compared to the Kässpatzen I had the evening before I went to Bad Wörishofen, at Panorama Hotel Rothenfels in Immenstadt im Allgäu, the ones at “Forelle” are a few times better and tastier. For sure I’ll be back!
