The restaurants in the Kempinski hotel Das Tirol in the Kitzbühel Alps couldn’t be more different. Yet on closer inspection, the Steinberg and the Sra Bua by Wini Brugger restaurants don’t differ that much, since the basics of the mountain classics and the Pan-Asian lifestyle restaurant are the same: tasty fresh produce, if possible from the region. Of course, the same applies to the sweet and hearty temptations that are offered by the patisserie in the lobby every day. Only the Rubin Bar is equipped mainly with pleasures from other countries, as the best cigars happen to come from a different continent.
A good day starts with a good breakfast, and getting a better one than in the Das Tirol hotel will almost be impossible. Freshly baked farmhouse bread with creamy butter, bread rolls and sweet delights, bacon and ham, juicy fruits and healthy vegetables, regional cheese and fresh eggs. Freshly squeezed juices, premium coffee, finest teas. That’s what breakfast looks like in the Steinberg restaurant: down-to-earth, authentic and the perfect start to an active day.
For those who are up for a sinfully delicious piece of cake, a couple of fine pralines or a savoury snack during the day, the Lobby Bar & Pâtisserie is the best place to go. These masterpieces of the pastry chefs taste best when they are accompanied by an aromatic cup of coffee or tea.
Every night however a hard decision has to be taken: classic dishes from the region or an excursion to the Pan-Asian world of taste? “The Steinberg restaurant is down-to-earth. We serve classics that everybody knows – but they get a modern note”., says chef de cuisine Mario Hofmann, who came from the Siam Kempinski Hotel in Bangkok to Tirol. The native German prepares the classics of the Tyrolean cuisine – but above all he provides a variety on the menu: In addition to an Italian buffet dinner Hofmann builds a dinner on shelves, cooks an excellent country-style barbecue or a romantic candlelight dinner.
For the barbeque Hofmann sets up a separate Cesar’s salad station, where the typical dressing will be prepared freshly for this delicious salad, accordingly to the request of the guests. On the grill comes only the finest beef sirloin and entrecote from Tyrolean breeding next to marinated veal steaks or loin from the domestic suckling pig as well as Loup de mer, Pikeperch wrapped up with Tyrolean bacon, medallions of trouts and giant prawns. The delights of the candlelight dinner are: “Duo of veal on orange-risotto, honey-thyme sauce and confit of capers”. The modern twist which Hofmann gives to his meals is detected most likely on the dessert menu of the Tyrolean buffet. There are, among other things: “White Sacher cake with strawberries”, “Sour cream curd”, as well as “Buttermilk mousse with pear”. He borrows from the Mediterranean, French, German and of course Austrian cuisine. “This is what gets on the plate in our modern interpretation,” claims the chef. The culinary pleasures can be ordered as a five-course menu with surprising options to choose from or as an à la carte dish as requested. But they are always as original as they can only taste in the mountains: like an exciting day in the clear invigorating air.
In Mario Hofmann’s kitchen the product always occupies center stage and therefore needs to be put in the focus of his dishes. This is not only true for the Steinberg restaurant but also for option number two, the Sra Bua by Wini Brugger: a culinary trip to the other end of the world. To a Faraway land of taste, to a world of exotic herbs, spices and vegetables. It is prepared in a traditional way as in Asia by using subtle cooking methods. And the cuisine goes beyond borders. Pan-Asian is the keyword for this concept, “Tyrol meets Asia”. The pioneer and creative mind of this cuisine is Wini Brugger, a Tyrolean who has won many awards and whose cuisine is characterized by his long culinary experience in Hong Kong, Shanghai and Saigon. For the concept of his Sra Bua by Wini Brugger, he combines Thai and South-East-Asian techniques with local and regional produce and his personal spice mixtures. The result is an aromatically intense, lively cuisine with signature dishes like “hot pot with udon noodles and local sturgeon” or “red lobster curry on water spinach”.
Discretion is very important in the Das Tirol hotel, also during dinner which can be taken in one of the two Private Dining Rooms on request. Excellent service and unforgettable culinary moments, accompanied by discretion at the highest level. For business partners and friends. For negotiations or a candlelight dinner.
