Re: Good vegetarian or vegetable-rich restaurant in Zurich?

Is it a lack of meat enzymes that creates the inability of vegetarians to open a phone book, and look for vegetarian food?

Over 190 results for vegetarians around Zurich... http://tel.local.ch/en/q?what=Vegeta...on%29&rid=6Ntx

http://www.local.ch/en/map/q?layers=...l%3Frid%3D6Ntx

We don't get many meat eaters on EF asking for the next steak house, do we?

Re: Good vegetarian or vegetable-rich restaurant in Zurich?

I think Hiltl is overpriced for what it is and imho the food is rather bland. However the bar is rather good as they also make interesting non alcoholic drinks. If you do go to Hiltl, watch the buffet, you can quickly reach chf 30 for a plate

I think it's two things -

First, the search function here is not particularly obvious to new users so they don't know to use it before starting a new thread.

Second, it's true I can look up restaurants in the phone book but if I'm new to the area I might not have any idea which ones are tasty and reasonably priced. I'd take an EF recommendation any day over a random place in the phone book.

I could take offence at that, but as it's you Sbrinz, I won't.

Re: Good vegetarian or vegetable-rich restaurant in Zurich?

Hitl and Tibits are brilliant, although Hitl is so busy that I prefer Tibits - less of a scrum at the buffet! Tried Samses too and it was cheaper, but not of the same standard. I also tried out Bona Dea once, near the HB, and was really disappointed - a very greasy buffet that seemed to not be all that fresh. Maybe I just came across it on a bad day, but I won't be going back.

I also loved Buffet Dreieck, which served delicious veggie burgers and others bits and pieces made from unwanted vegetables. A great food waste recovery project, but I've just learnt that they've had to close down due to financial reasons. Very disappointing, I hope that they'll be back. http://www.buffetdreieck.ch/

I quite like Bona Dea - I must have been there on a GOOD day ;-)

Re: Good vegetarian or vegetable-rich restaurant in Zurich?

Samses, Tibits and Hiltl are pretty lame when it comes to their buffet. Since 10 years that i frequent these restaurants, it has the same stuff on it. also by opening more restaurants (pflanzbar, sihlpost, dachterrasse), it does not add variety. i was at the www.ellenbelle.ch/ this week and must say: fab stuff! the "saitan g'schnetzeltes" was amazing! way to go, Hiltl.

Re: Good vegetarian or vegetable-rich restaurant in Zurich?

I agree--Tibits and Hiltl's food is greasy and the restaurants are over-promoted. (Yes, they're run by the same people).

There are a lot of restaurants that have vegetarian food; use www.happycow.net as someone above recommended. Lunch-bowl places have vegetarian options; many restaurants have at least a couple veggie dishes. Ethnic restaurants--Thai, Ethiopian, Sri Lankan--usually have vegetarian food.

Yes I agree. The bufett in Hiltl near Jelmoli is a disaster. Especially when theres alot of people. No space to move and some foods are placed so high up that a small person could not even reach! Wake up Hiltl! Its not the 1950's.

Better to go to a good lebanese restaurant. Plenty of vegi choices

I like the vegan/vegetarian options at Stripped Pizza, they have 2 or 3 locations in Zürich.
