Doesn’t this place look grand?
Bierhalle Kropf has a marvelous decor and looking at the opulence, you wouldn’t have guessed that it was founded in 1880~ Like a
man woman, Kropf ages gracefully and it’s clearly a very popular restaurant with a cheerful atmosphere. Even before I was shown to the table, I knew that I was gonna have a great lunch!
In Gassen 16
Rustic Bürli on every table. Bürli actually means “small bread “ but it’s obviously a misnomer cuz the crusty bread roll is huge!
If there’s one thing I die-die-must-eat in Switzerland, it’s good old rosti! Here I had it in the form of fried rosti fritters, which was the special of the day. Extremely delicious, though I wish there were more than three.. I was hungry, ok? :p
On such a cold day, the boiled beef in hot broth with boiled potatoes looks like the perfect comfort food for the carnivorous soul.
And then this being a “go all out for carbs” day, I was craving for rosti again when it was dinner time. Only this time, I wanted the real rosti.. You know, the round, flat and hearty type. And I got it at Weisser Wind, a former guild house for the bakers which serves excellent traditional food.
Big Bürli sighted again.
I love, love, super love my rosti “Marilyn” with two eggs! It’s nothing fancy and yet so satisfying. Nothing pleases me more than well prepared simple food~
If you are into meat, a definite must-try is the “Zurich-style” sliced veal with rosti, one of the house specialties. I heard nothing but praise for this!
Alright, those are my two cents’ worth on where to eat in Zurich. Do you have any other recommendations for me to check out? I’ll be heading there again next month and any help will be much appreciated! 🙂
