For brunch I highly recommend dropping by Haus Hiltl, the oldest vegetarian restaurant in the world founded in 1898. Now, I am far from becoming vegetarian but after eating here I could easily switch to a vegetarian lifestyle for the rest of my life.

In conclusion, Zurich can be a very expensive city, it is considered the MOST EXPENSIVE CITY IN THE WORLD, the places we ate at were pricey but places like the Street Food Festival are the cheaper alternatives and you still get a good impression of the Swiss food culture. In the future I will release another article on how to do Switzerland on a budget, stay subscribed to my YouTube channel until then.
