We are getting a little more adventurous about eating out in Zürich. We still eat at home for a vast majority of the time, mostly because we have not found a restaurant that we really like. (Of course, if we don’t go out, it’s hard to find a restaurant….)

For a while we thought we would try Hiltl – the world’s oldest vegetarian restaurant. Then we settled on Tibits, a restaurant associated with Hiltl.

Bingo. We finally found food in a Swiss restaurant that really tastes delicious. So delicious that we didn’t mind spending money for it.

After filling your plate, you take it to the counter to be weighed, and there you can order drinks, pay, and find a place to sit. On a Sunday afternoon at 14.30, there were a few spots open, but the place was really hopping.

IMG_4932My plate of food (in the foreground) was 365 grams. H’s plate was over 400 g. We split the beer (Bio-Beer Vom Fass – Organic Beer on tap). My plate had a samosa (very delicious – next time I will take two or three), curry, hummus, a calzone, rice and veggies. And some fried things that I don’t know. H had other kinds of curry and jalapeño poppers (also very delicious – I had one). Everything had such great flavor, and the ambiance was hip. As people here would say, it was all Tip Top.
