Re: Burger in Zurich

As I mentionned here, you'll have in mid April a Holy Cow in downtown Zürich.

It's one my favorite place in Geneva for goooood burgers.

So I guess it's a place you'll have to try.

Re: Burger in Zurich

Funny,i just came back from 2 weeks in NYC where i sampled many burgers, from 4 USd to 25USd and thought all bar one was pretty much tasteless, huge , but tasteless.
(Shake shake at less than 5usd was the best, imo)

Oh I can't wait. I love Holy Cow and can highly recommend it! And the now I won't have to plan in advance and make reservations (the one downside of Helvti Diner.)

Re: Burger in Zurich

Not been through the whole thread so this may have been posted, but aside from a quick McDonalds or Burger King for trash burger, then I only ever get burgers from here:

We went there once to eat. The burger had everything except for taste and sauce. Worst was that the owner was a very nice guy and talking so genuinely enthusiastic about his food that we didn't dare to complain It is a great place though to sit outside and have a beer.

Maybe Holy Cow will open in Zurich one day for you. It's only in Geneva + Lausanne so far.

Re: Burger in Zurich

If you want a good burger get to Wohlen (5610PCode), can't remember the name but it is next to Denner on Bremgartenstrasse. Seriously good truckstop burger in large size for 11Chuffs, funny (for you Aussies) we were only talking last week about the the truckstop burgers you used to get at Golden Fleece service stations, this would equal them if only they would add beetroot!! So while in Wohlen also take a visit to the main street (all 200m of it!!) there is a Maxim supermarket http://tel.search.ch/wohlen/zentrals...axim-shop-gmbh which has a great range of Asian/Indian/Middle eastern spices and food ect but the meat section is what grabbed me, whole rumps for 11Chuffs a kg and veal under 20.
And the third good thing there is the road out!!

Re: Burger in Zurich

Just to add my 2 cents worth - the burgers at Helvti Diner are pretty disappointing.

The main reason is that they don't taste of much at all. Presentation and execution was a pretty minimal, joyless affair (patty in bun, with one sauce, tomato slice and a pickle on the side). And the "spicy bbq" sauce is, I am pretty sure, just mayo with tabasco.

The burgers just aren't good enough to be charging CHF 23 and upwards, especially as you don't even get fries with that. That said, the fries were ok.

Re: Burger in Zurich

been to a few burger places in switzerland, most were crap, tasteless, and greasy.. the worst being those at papa joes - grey slices of processed cardboard despite the claims of "home made" they are not.

It was dissapointing to have had an excellent, well prepared, tasty and non greasy burger on a small island in Thailand.

I am from America aka land of burgers and will be moving to Zurich in a couple of months...
Where is the best burger? I am not easily impressed, I saw a few in France last year that made me want to cry they were so terrible looking and way too expensive!
I want a good bun, quality meat, good toppings, good frites or tater tots to go with it.

Any suggestions will be much appreiciated

There is a new fastfood chain here in geneva named HOLY COW..try it

Re: Burger in Zurich

I'm not that convinced that the US is home to the best burgers simply for the reason that nobody will do you one cooked anything less than medium. (They're scared of getting sued because of the risk of food poisoning).

Having said that, Five Guys are certainly top-notch for a takeaway burger but the size of the portion of fries they give you is frightening: I normally throw away about 50% of even a small portion.

For Switzerland: best burgers I've had are at Restaurant Aeschenplatz in Basel (Marcel Ospel's old lunchtime hangout; still stuffed with bankers). Simple dressings but absolutely superb meat obviously prepared in the kitchen - always order them bleu.
