KFC in Switzerland?

Hi everyone!

Is there a KFC in Zurich? I'm going to have a few visitors who are big KFC fans (and I must admit I enjoy it every now and again despite not being at all into fast food). I tried to have a look around but ended up with nothing (which might very well indicate that there are no KFC around ;-)

Cheers

Re: KFC in Zurich

As far as I know Switzerland is "sans Colonel". Thank goodness, apart from the health implications it would probably cost 5chf just for a wing. And I just put on 2kg only thinking about a 5 piece box.

Re: KFC in Zurich

I must admit that from time to time I have yearned for a tower burger from KFC. Sad I know, but it won't be happening for me anytime soon in CH - that's for sure!

Don't complain to a Swiss about the lack of KFC, you'll only get a lecture about how nobody wants to have one, and shame on you for wanting one

Re: KFC in Zurich

KFC (I'm old school; I still call it kentucky Fried Chicken) is the ONLY thing I miss about England. Sad, but 100% true. My wife was even considering taking me to Germany for my birthday, just to get some finger lickin' goodness.

Re: KFC in Zurich

Absolutely correct there are none in CH. There was one in Geneva - I went there for the experience but it closed a couple of years ago citing difference of opinion with the authorities. Whatever that was supposed to mean!

KFC in Switzerland?

Just wondering I have never seen there is KFC in Switzerland? if no, what makes people here dislike it? or it was banned by the country? Has anybody seen one here or has it ever existed in this country before?

Re: KFC in Switzerland?

Err, for mechanically reclaimed, I think you're looking more towards McDonald's. KFC just treat them badly when they're alive.
I miss KFC so much...

I see your interests include cooking. If so, why would you want to eat KFC? Get some inspiration here. There's many more threads on "real" food on the forum, just use the search button.

Guilty as charged your honour!

I use to occasionally eat that sort of.... stuff.... and indeed it is very tasty and you get a great calorie rush. I just know now that for them to achieve that they have to throw in so much sugar and salt as well as all sorts of real nasties to keep the production costs down and flavour levels up.

And of course what the chickens have to go through (and what goes through them in thier feed) doesn't bear thinking about.

I am not much of a KFC freak, but used to love Taco Bell. Cant find any of those or similar joints here...none that are so dirt cheap!

Do they serve the traditional English welcome drink called "Vimto"?
