Zum Kropf located in Gassen 16 and could be traced back to the Middle Ages as the first mention name “Zum Kropf” in 1444. The place has course has been changed from mayor house to spice shop. At the present, Zum Kropf holds a place as a well-known restaurant in Zurich.


Quoted from Zum Kropf website

“The beer hall is the restaurant’s showpiece. At the centre is a powerful “Corinthian” pillar, plastered in stucco marble. The wall panelling is interrupted by two large mirrors, which have lavish baroque frames. Stretching across them is a fresco depicting cheerful cherubs, singing frogs, musical monkeys, and lively drinking buddies. The vault is ornamented with Hermes figures and “culinary emblems”– a cornucopia of vegetables, crabs, and tortoises – indicating a rich banquet of food. A stained glass window integrated in the hall’s painted stucco ceiling is characteristic for interiors of the epoch. The rear hall is designed in a simpler fashion, attaining its rhythmic structure from three wood pillars.”


In my opinion, this restaurant is an amazing opportunity to enjoy good food and artistic value at the same time.


Kalbsbradwurst Rosti


Bradwurst texture is firm and juicy as expected from Zurich standard cuisine influenced by German food because of the location.  The sauce is also well-seasoned.


Rosti is crispy but burnt in the bottom.


Then I traveled to Lakeside Zurich to enjoy get some breeze.


That’s all for this review. Personally, I think this pack combines beautiful ambiance and delicious food. See you later and hope you have a wonderful day 😊.
