City/Town: Zurich
Event Type: Other
Meeting Point: Gotthardstrasse 66, 8002 Zurich

I might have found the best burger in Zurich, at very, very reasonable prices, thanks to the excellent recommendation of zwissmiss.

Their great burger and viciously tasty fries made the defeat of Italy at the Euro 2012 a bit more bearable

Who's coming? Hope to see you there!

Re: A Taste of Burger - Lunch in Zurich

Guys. I was actually there and did not see anyone. Speaking english I just overheard a group of four Asian looking teenagers, either you were them or your Swiss German is close to perfection.

Oh well... I guess that's what I get for RSVP'ing a "maybe" 15 minutes before the event...

Burger was good though, lonely but good...

Re: A Taste of Burger - Lunch in Zurich

Thank you to all who came, I really enjoyed it. Sorry for being a bit late and a bit sleepy after the almost 28-hour non stop (work) but I think I managed to say HI to everyone at least

Special thanks to Spinach for having smart ideas! I wish all of you a good weekend, and hope to see you all again soon.

The burger...rocks! I find that they cook it to my taste (a bit on the rare side) and that the "extra cheese" option is the way to go. Highly recommend to check it out if you have a chance!

Re: A Taste of Burger - Lunch in Zurich

We had taken over the two big wooden tables right outside by the entrance, Alex. There were 14 of us, making some noise, all in English. Sorry you missed us!

BokerTov, thank you for organizing another amazing lunch. The burgers were awesome, and I haven't laughed this hard in a long time; sad I had to go back to work. And thanks zwissmiss for finding this place!

Alex, sorry but obviously I did not see your last-minute RSVP. I myself got there 10 minutes after 12 or so, and while I was waiting in the LOOOONG line, I was checking out to see if someone looked "lost" or was looking for EF people. Sorry you missed us! We were sitting outside. In these cases, I normally just walk up to English-speaking people and ask if they are from the EF - shameless, but it works!

Hope to see you another time!

Re: A Taste of Burger - Lunch in Zurich

Had an abolute 'mare today.

A video conference I had this morning over ran, so I thought I'd be 15 minutes late (made some time back on the Autobahn thanks to English number plates). Hit Zurich and all the bloody roads to Enge were closed for roadworks, so I had to navigate around the diversion. 15 minutes late became 30 minutes.
Then I couldn't find a bloody car park space and when I did, I had no change for the meter. 30 mins became 45 minutes.

F*** it! I ended up coming home and having a horrible McDonalds burger instead.

Please organise another one soon. Or if anybody else wants to share a table with me next week, please let me know.

Re: A Taste of Burger - Lunch in Zurich

Well, that sucks. I only saw one "joined" big table inside (made out of two tables) but this guys were obviously Swiss. Outside all seemed like smaller tables..

Anyway.... thanks for the replies it was obviously my fault for RSVPing so late, hopefully I can meet some of you soon.

Defo - just give me a time and date, I'll be there - will probably leave the car at home this time.

On the flip side... thanks to all the diversions around Enge, I saw a traffic cop on a Segway.

Thanks Federica for organising, the food was excellent, but the company was even better! I had a great laugh at my table talking about the fog border.
