I particularly enjoyed the sausages and cheeses they served. Be sure to try them.

They serve a bread platter with eggplant dip while you wait. The breads include focacia bread, wheat bread, and loaf bread.

If you want to start your meal with salads, you might want to order their Hestia Green Salad with assorted organic fresh greens in vinaigrette.

For me, it’s a must that you order their Sausage Platter of Austrian and German sausages including debriziner, bockwurst with cheese, Austrian buren sausage with sauerkraut and potato wedges. Sauerkraut is chopped cabbage that’s pickled in brine. The sausages go well with their German mustard.

The Platter of Cheese is a combination of Pecorino, Asiago, Scamorza, Gorgonzola, and Taleggio cheeses served with pickles and olives. Try requesting for their green cheese, the pesto cheese. It’s the first time I had cheese that’s green. It tasted like pesto.

Although I liked their sausages better, when it comes to the meat they serve, other popular choices among their guests are Osso Bucco Milanese and Wiener Schnitzel.

Osso Bucco Milanese is a traditional dish from Italy. It’s beef shank that Chateau Hestia slowly simmers in rich tomato sauce. It’s served with mashed potatoes and mixed buttered vegetables.

Wiener Schnitzel is a famous Viennese dish of thinly sliced breaded pork cutlet. The restaurant serves it with parsley, potatoes, and Hestia’s green salad.

If you like bleu cheese on your pasta, you might enjoy their Pasta Con Gorgonzola. Gorgonzola is a veined Italian bleu cheese, made from unskimmed cow’s milk. It can be buttery or firm, crumbly and quite salty, with a “bite” from its blue veining. (Gorgonzola description from Wikipedia)

For pizza, try their 12″ Reale Pizza, topped with assorted coldcuts like prosciutto, pancetta, salami, bresaola, pepperoni, speck, and ground sirloin.

The restaurant has its signature iced tea. Hestia’s Special Iced Tea is brewed iced tea with grenadine syrup, orange, sugar, and calamansi syrup.

For desserts, they have Kaiserschmarrn and A Love Triangle.

Kaiserschmarrn or Kaiserschmarren is a famous royal pancake of Austria named after the Austrian emperor Kaiser Franz Joseph I, who loved this kind of shredded pancake. It’s served with plum and cherry compote.

A Love Triangle is a plate with three desserts, including chocolate mousse, with dark chocolate and pear. I liked their chocolate mousse a lot.

The man behind Chateau Hestia is Johannes Zehethofer, a native of Vienna, Austria. The restaurant’s website says Zehethofer brought this unique European experience to us as a result of his travels, fondness of entertaining friends, and love for wine and good food.
