Swiss Wurst, Zurich Airport, Kloten
Bad decisions happen every now and then. Being at the airport and having some time to kill, I opted for a quick dinner at the Foodland (a collection of different fast food joints). The most unusual one was something called Swiss Wurst (german for sausage). Against my inner voice I ordered a Bratwurst with Roesti and Zwiebelsauce. The pork sausage I preferred was out so I settled for the classic veal sausage. The roeschti was a couple of bad hash browns (precooked), a pretty bland sausage which was cooked on an electric grill, at least the onion sauce was okay. This is a real disgrace to classic swiss cuisine and frankly, any tourist is getting robbed who decides to eat here. I can’t believe I’d say this, but I’d recommend the McDonalds right next to it. Only when I saw who’s running the show, did I realize no wonder it’s so bad. What do the guys from Autogrill know about Roeschti ?
