Re: Burger in Zurich

Those are simple, standard burger ingredients. Goat cheese, sundried tomato aioli, a parmesan crisp, and candied onions? Overengineered.

Different ingredients for different tastes.

Re: Burger in Zurich

Best burger I have had so far in ZH has been in Kennedy's Pub.
www.kennedys.ch

They used to serve them with the big fat chips (the ones which are great soaked in vinegar, but then switched to the regular ones, apparently because they previous were not so popular. If you want the fat ones you can order them though.

I haven't tried the other places mentioned in this thread; I am interested to know how it compares to those.

Re: Burger in Zurich

Yeah, the manager told me that the Swiss kept sending back the hand-cut chips!!!

Granted, even the regular fries are good, but I love the hand-cut chips with a burger, and I love that they come with a bit of salad (not just lettuce for the burger) with each burger. (Their beef and guinness pie is really good, too.)

Re: Burger in Zurich

I recommend 2 more burger places in Zurich. The first one is less expensive and serves a very good farmer-beefy burger. Second one is quite expensive and normally you need to reserve a table but one of the best in the town. Both are very close to STOCKERSTRASSE

1. Silberkugel
2. Korner (http://www.gourmetburger.ch/)

Try Pot Bellies in Adliswil for their Burgers, www.potbellys.ch, while playing snooker, darts or air hockey.

You're kidding, right? Silberkugel farmer burgers usually look nothing like, that very greasy and also pretty small... you can really tell it's a photo from their own site, just like on a McDonads poster where the burgers actually look like burgers. The food there, for the most part, sucks.

Re: Burger in Zurich

Nope, it exactly looks like it. I am no fan of Beef as such, but when most of my swiss colleagues like that, I would assume it is very good I eat veggie burger and french fries that most of the time. And I must say McDonalds, BurgerKing do not come in competition with it in anyway.

Re: Burger in Zurich

I would like recommend (especially for families) a place near Zurich airport on the road Oberglattstrasse. There is a small place to eat burgers. I take either veggie burger with mexican bbq sauce or Cervelat. They have very good french fries there which looks similar to Deluxe potatoes at McDonalds.

The best part is that you see the planes lading as it on the boundary of the airport. On any sunny day, you will see many families there and few motorcyclists. You can buy marronies or ice cream (2 more kiosks along side)
They have free cark parking (for more than 50-75 places)

Google map coordinates -> 47.485171,8.528093

So you don't eat the burger there even though you aren't vegetarian and the fries are like McDonalds. Are you sure you meant recommend?

Re: Burger in Zurich

@treesarehalal,

It looks like McDonalds' fries (Deluxe Potatoes) but tastes much better. (sorry I missed that TASTE part)

Re: Burger in Zurich

Home made burgers with own selection of ingredients taste the best. Having said that our home made dag-wood to perfection on menu tonight Especially after long road trip.

Re: Burger in Zurich

The Burger Club has a list and ranking of where to find good burgers in Zürich. You can also search by price and Kreis.

We've tried Korner (my favorite), Heidi & Tell (the husband's favorite), Holy Cow and the Helvti diner is up next.
