Good Vegetarian in Zurich?

I'm shortly moving to Zurich and, as always, on the look out for good vegetarian food or shops to buy good tofu. I have found the restaurant Hiltl and enjoyed it tremendously, but beyond that was a bit stumped. Any suggestions for making the transition greatly appreciated.

Re: Good Vegetarian in Zurich?

I don't know what you consider "good tofu", but I've found some at Coop Sihlcity, Lian Hua (near Bahnhof Wiedikon), and the Asia Store (@Zurich HB near track 18).

The Coop only seemed to have the firm kind, while the Asian stores had both silken and firm. And sometimes the fried one that's cooked in soy sauce.

Coming from the States, I find the tofu prices here outrageous, but it's in line with everything else in Zurich.

Hiltl also has a sister restaurant called Tidbits down at Seefeld, but it's a lot smaller.

Thanks for this information. In Lausanne we have a great Asian shop, so we might check out Lian Hua. And knowing that Hiltl has a sister restaurant is very exciting news. I think that we will be going there shortly. If you have any other suggestions, I'd love to know, but again, I'm grateful for the reply.

Most of the "Asia Stores" chain (Main station and Oerlikon Station) sell good plain Tofu. The Deli in the Viadukt sells nice Satay Tofu and sometimes Braised/Smoked Tofu. There is also a Thai Supermarket in Zollstasse , close to the Asia Store that sells Tofu. To be honest, it all looks the same stock/supplier.

Re: Good Vegetarian in Zurich?

I like a restaurant that is just around Jelmoli and its like a buffet of delicious vegetarian food. And regarding the shopping, also Jelmoli has a good quality store, its just not cheap.

You find many vegetarian stuff in health-food shops , like Müller Reformhaus http://www.reformhaus.ch/verkaufsstellen/index.php or Egli Bio http://www.eglibio.ch/filialen/filialen-egli.html .

Re: Good Vegetarian in Zurich?

If you want to break your journey anytime, in the front of Berne railway station is another Tibits restaurant, I believe this is the first Tibits, afterwards they opened in London then Zurich. They are closely connected to Hitl http://www.hiltl.ch/ http://www.tibits.ch/d/restaurants-take-away/bern/

Re: Good Vegetarian in Zurich?

Tibits have two adjoining restaurants in Seefeld, ZH just by the NZZ building behind the theater. The newer of the two is the "NZZ Bistro" which is pretty much the same as the regular restaurant, but with more space.

They also have a place in Winterthur, the same deal as the ZH city location.

The internet is your friend, check out their website.
