*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Zurich
Event Type: Other
Meeting Point: Ankerstrasse 16, 8004 Zurich

UPDATE: guys, I am terribly, terribly sorry, but I have to change the day for this lunch due to a (very unflexible) apartment visit that cannot be rescheduled. I apologize once again, and I hope that many of you can still make it on Thursday instead. Thanks for understanding

I stumbled upon this place by chance, and was highly impressed.

Lunch menus inclusive of delicious focaccia bread (basket replenished at ease), water, salad, and main course ranging between CHF 16-20.

Place is very small, so I need to make a reservation. Who is in with me?

I will call them on Thursday morning at the absolute latest. They were pretty packed today, and it was a random Monday lunchtime...Yes, please, bring the OH! Unfortunately mine doesn't work in Zurich (and is jealous about our lunches too, hehehe)!

Re: A Taste of Greece - Lunch in Zurich

Hi all, please see the update at the beginning of the post - I lost all my RSVPs, so could you please subscribe one more time if you can still attend on Thursday? I am terribly sorry, but we all know how finding an apartment works in Zurich

Re: A Taste of Greece - Lunch in Zurich

Great company, great food, the place is really cute and looks/feels like eating in a friend's dining room.

I had the aubergine saganaki (eggplant and various other veggies with feta cheese and tomato sauce) and really, really enjoyed it. Water, salad, main course, and bread a-plenty for CHF 16.

Many thanks to all who came

Great event. Simple, but delicious, food. Totally would recommend it. Just make a reservation if you want to eat there.

Hi Federica,

I love Greek food! Having spent holidays in Rhodes and Kefalonia, your mention of saganaki got my mouth watering big time! And the price is unbelieveable! I have to go there some time soon.

Re: A Taste of Greece - Lunch in Zurich

thanks federica for organising yet another yummy event - this was not only extremely lecker (I also had the saganaki) but also at 16 CHF total for meal + "all you can drink" tap water + "all you can eat" delicious bread incredibly cheap for zurich.

I'm sure their catering service is just as enticing.

by the way, the place is two doors away from the freitag reference store and a cosy vintag boutique for a quick digestive-after-lunch-shopping...
looking forward to our next lunch!

I had the delicious "insert name here" and I could not finish it and I still feel super full. Was very nice! and the company makes it even more fun!

Looking forward for the next one

I know, for others (including our OHs) it's difficult, too. next time you have a day off let us know, I'm sure if we ask our efficient patron federica veerrry nicely she'll be willing to improvise some variation to the schedule if possible

I'm sure we can work it out

And besides, I still want to pick MM&I's brain about Kenya and Africa in general, now more than ever!
