After a stressful journey home during the tube strike the night before there was only one thing for it to survive another night of tube strikes.. walk to a restaurant close to work and stock up on comfort food. The weather was rather appropriate for escaping to a warm, casual restaurant and watching the unlucky commuter folk struggle with the wrath of the wind/rain turning many an umbrella inside out!

I’d done my homework previously by reading up on a few reviews to see which schnitzel people thought was the winner. I went for the Pork topped with a duck egg which added the extra moisture which was needed to break through the crispy schnitzel covering.

Lawrence went for the Veal which was his favourite and reluctantly I’d say mine too!


My ultimate dish of the evening was actually the gorgeous spatzle ’n’ cheese with speck. Mac ’n’ cheese to most of you with the added bacon, there was pools of cheese at the bottom of the tin container.

In my eyes you can never have too much cheese. Eyes bigger than stomachs we also ordered frites and house salad both were very nice. Especially liked the added touch of roasted butternut squash hidden under the salad.

Now sitting there struggling to move from all the food we still ended up having a long discussion over which pudding to go for. In the end I was the bigger person and relented towards the Oma’s Apple Strudel which was Lawrence’s choice (memories of skiing holidays coming back to him). It was blooming fantastic, crisp pastry surrounding, not too many raisins and gorgeous warm apple throughout, would highly recommend.

Since it was a school night we unfortunately didn’t make the most of the spritzers and the downstairs bar but did have a snoop on the way to the toilets. It was like going down a rabbit hole, lovely ‘escape the world’ feel and enjoy the huge spritzers which looked gorgeous.

Overall Boopshi’s had a good, homely feel. The food was yummy without being show stopping but the place to go if you fancy a really good schitnzel!
