vegan restaurant in Zurich

Our Friday office chatter has us talking about a new vegan restaurant and bakery which has just opened up around the corner. Boss says she hasn't tried it yet, but heard it was nice. Anyone been yet?

Re: vegan restaurant in Zurich

I have been once (when they first opened) and thought it was average although I was a bit disappointed with the size of the sandwich I ordered for the price they were charging! Would be prepared to give it another go now that they've been open a while. Does anyone know if they do good cake?

Re: vegan restaurant in Zurich

i had the cheesecake, which was pretty excellent.... but in general, yeah, it seems like more of a lunch place, which is disappointing.

Maybe a Zürich vegan Picnic/BBQ is in order now there seem to be a lot of vegans popping up on EF...

Re: vegan restaurant in Zurich

I've had what turned out to be the mother of all portions of lasagne there--it took me two days to eat it. I followed it by the mother of all brownies, which like the lasagne was very nice.

I'm told they now do smaller serving sizes upon request.

I've gone often on a Wednesday when they do burgers and roasted potatoes. Really tasty, but good to know about the smaller portions, man it's a lot of food.

Re: vegan restaurant in Zurich

I'll make it there one of these Wednesdays for the burgers. Haha, too right about the portions! They told me the cheaper, smaller portions are because so many people "complained" about the large serving sizes.

Re: vegan restaurant in Zurich

It was fun while it lasted: Vegan Kitchen and Bakery is set to close after just nine months if the owner can't come up with Sfr. 300,000.-, which she needs to expand seating in order to make the place profitable (why a tiny detail like return didn't factor into her original business plan is beyond me).

Hope there's some vegan money sloshing around Zurich so this place can stay in business...

Re: vegan restaurant in Zurich

New place just opened in Zürich (Müllerstrasse 64):

Vegelateria

Looks like an ice cream / café place, but the website says they can now seat 75. I haven't had a chance to check it out yet.

Re: vegan restaurant in Zurich

I've been there, it's really nice and the buffet is cheap. The ice-cream is a bit expensive, but really good. They also sell a lot of different products and organise events.

It's worth a visit.

Re: vegan restaurant in Zurich

www.marktkueche.ch opened up near the Baeckeranlage. My friends (both non vegan nor vegetarians) loved it! Small and local/seasonal menu, served very nicely and tastes good (except for the brownie, that was the only disappointing thing on the menu, and yes, we almost tried everything)

Re: vegan restaurant in Zurich

Hi all,


Re-opening this chat...
Anyone know of any other good vegan restaurants not of the Hiltl variety?
Trying to plan a nice dinner out and running out of options!


Thanks!


Deborah

Re: vegan restaurant in Zurich

Bebek offers vegan options, as does Frascati, many Asian/Indian places too (just ask if they use fish sauce). A soup/sandwhich place is 'Not guilty' next to Mc D at Stauffacher. Gärtnerei also does vegan dishes as well as Dean and David, both near Stockerstrasse.

I picked up some food from their buffet today, it was yummy!

Samses is also a nice place, vegetarian rather than vegan, but there are vegan options. I really enjoyed the meal I had there.
