Zurich (part 2 - what to eat)

There is plenty to see and do in Zurich as I mentioned in the last post and all that activity requires food and drink. Here are some of the places I went to that I really enjoyed. Hopefully it can give you some pointers if you head to Zurich.

If you enjoy a good pancake, go to Zum guten glück

I had one smothered in Nutella and it still makes my tummy grumble just thinking about it. They also have a hotel upstairs all decked out in stylish furnishings and that is quite reasonably-priced. It's a bit out of the centre but everything is so well connected by public transport that it is very easy to get to.


Josef on Josefstrasse is a really nice restaurant which offers interesting decor and a different slant on your usual menu concept. You choose if you want 2, 3, or even 4 courses and then decide which dishes you want as your starter, main and dessert. The food was delicious but the servings small so I'm glad I opted for three courses.

Hiltl is a vegetarian restaurant chain that seems to be quite popular in Zurich. Its sister restaurant, Tibits, has opened in London just off Regent Street. You can either go for the buffet (and the price is based on the weight of your food) or choose a dish from the menu. The food was also really nice here.


Poushe offers a selection of delicious strudels both savoury and sweet that you can enjoy for a reasonable price. They also have a stall at the Viadukt food market that I mentioned in my last post about Zurich.

For those with a sweet tooth, don't miss a trip to Sprüngli (of the famous Lindt and Sprungli) for a chocolate-filled brioche or any one of these beauties:

Have you been to Zurich before? What are your favourite eateries there?



  1. This post has made me very hungry :-) I've been to Zurich a few times but can't remember any places I ate at unfortunately... x

    1. As long as you had plenty chocolate on each visit, that's the main thing!
