Asian-Fusion cuisine at Citizen Long in Stuttgart

There is a new Asian player in town, food-wise: Citizen Long in Stuttgart downtown is located right behind Stiftskirche. Their food concept: urban fusion kitchen. I’ve been there twice, once for brunch on a Saturday, the other time for lunch during the week. If you want to know what I think of Citizen Long in Stuttgart, read along.

The first time I went to Citizen Long in Stuttgart on a late Saturday morning with Moritz to have breakfast or brunch. I had seen pictures of the interior on Instagram and read some review so I was very curious to try the new place myself.

The interior of Citizen Long is quite lofty and urban which I like a lot. It was not full at all when we went there but maybe that has changed nowadays.

When we checked the menu I was quite surprised I have to say. I expected “fusion kitchen” to be a mix of Asian and European dishes. However the breakfast menu consisted mainly of European alternatives. I went for avocado bread, Moritz tried the humus bread and we shared a fruit bowl followed by a piece of cake. As I said, not very Asian, right?

The bread was very good, organic and wholegrain and thus very rich and tasty.

The fruit bowl was a bit smaller than I would have expected but it tasted fresh and juicy.

The second time I went to Citizen Long with my friend Rachel to have lunch. They have a small selection of vegetarian dishes. I chose lentils in a curry sauce which came with a piece of crispy bread. I have to say it tasted good but was nothing special. I actually got the impression that Citizen Long specialized in meat and fish dishes and not really in vegetarian options.

What I liked about Citizen Long in Stuttgart

The interior! I am a fan of urban living and the big, open room with the concrete walls definitely met my taste. Moreover the quality of the food is very high.

What I didn’t like

I was actually a bit disappointed by the breakfast choices. Sure, the avocado and humus bread was good, but nothing special. And the price was actually very high. I get that good quality comes with a price but I would expect fusion kitchen to be a bit more creative than a bread I could make myself at home. Plus the vegetarian options for lunch didn’t catch me.
