Hooters, Helvetiaplatz, Zurich


Philly Cheessteak

I’m so glad to know that a landmark of fine american dining has a franchisee in Zurich. Hooters fine dining establishment is located just near the Helvetiaplatz. Roughly a dozen screens show sports and the crowd is mostly male. Overall the patrons seem to sport a bit of a lower profile than say Cheyenne in Oerlikon. Some nachos make it our way. I’m not a big fan of salad on my nachos and I prefer guacamole on the side for easier dipping. Mains is a real classic, a Philly Cheesesteak sandwich. While it was very typical for a Cheesesteak, it also falls short like the ones in Philadelphia. There’s no discernable texture differences and the flavour gets mixed up with all of the components. Instead of getting crunchy bread, soft & sweet onions, gooey & salty cheese and nice meat, it’s one single flavor which hits your taste buds. So it’s fair to award a point for authenticity. The cole slaw gets an honorable mention, it’s pretty nice. The place has real american grub, for decent prices. Oh yes, and for the male patrons – the boobs do not warrant a visit:
