Restaurant: Zum Kropf
Menu: Kalbsbradwurst Rosti
Address: In Gassen 16 | 8001, Zurich 8001, Switzerland
Business hours: 11.30 am – 23.00 pm
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.
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 😊.
Restaurant: Alexis Restaurant & Winebar
Menu: Classic cheese fondue
Address: Niederdorfstrasse 40 | Niederdörfli, Zurich 8001, Switzerland
Business hours: 11am – 12pm
As I am in Switzerland, it is not a question whether to have fondue or not. The question is when and where to have this awesome bowl of melty cheese in Switzerland. I went to a restaurant in old town part for a fondue.
Classic Cheese Fondue
Wine, Cherry Grappa, Garlic & Seasoning
Melty cheese fondue on a rainy day seems to be a good combination. Proportion of bread seems to be large. Fondue taste kind of salty. I recommend having this set for two persons.
Jin-kyun wants some taste of fondue >_<
That’s all for this review. Personally, I think this is a great place for cheese fondue. See you later and hope you have a wonderful day 😊.
Restaurant: Sternen Grill
Menu: St. Galler Bratwurst & Gold Bürli
Address: Theaterstrasse 22 | Bellevue, Zurich 8001, Switzerland
Business hours: 10:30 AM – 11:45 PM
Switzerland are well known for high living quality which also comes with a higher cost when it comes to food. Today, I will write about local food and possibly comfort food with reasonable price in Zurich. Located in southern part of town near tram station.
I have arrived at the place near 8 PM. The place is crowded with people which means a very good sign. This restaurant is famous for their St. Galler Bratwurst and most of Bratwurst cost around 7-15 CHF which is still reasonable price in Zurich.
St. Galler Bratwurst texture seems to be quite overcooked on the outside. However, the first bite provided firm and juicy texture with beautiful seasoning that makes me wants another bite. This is one of the best Bratwurst I have ever had so far.
Crusty Bürli bread roll is also good combination with St. Galler Bratwurst.
That’s all for this review. Personally, I think this is one of the best place in Zurich for Bratwurst. I strongly recommend if you visit Zurich. See you later and hope you have a wonderful day 😊.
