A History of Vegetarian Cooking at Hiltl
With its sausage-centric food culture, Zurich
may not be the most likely home for the world’s oldest vegetarian restaurant, but family-owned Hiltl has been serving up vegetarian fare for over four generations. This restaurant competes with the city’s great gourmet empires and attracts vegetarians and carnivores alike with its inventive cuisine and sprawling buffet. Over the past hundred years, its offerings have evolved from simple and starch-heavy to exotic and globally inspired. Go not only for the food but the experience: The three-story building includes a cocktail bar, a nightclub and cooking instruction area.
