Vorbahnhof, Sihlquai, Zurich



I’m not fond of the Candrian Empire, running a slew of restaurants in the Zurich main station. If you don’t agree, buy a sandwich at one of their take out establishments and you’ll know why. Still I head to the Vorbahnhof every now and then. I always get the Jumbospiess for lunch. It starts with an uninspired salad, which is okay for getting fed. The Jumbospiess is a lot of food, plus it also carries a Cipollata (small, veal sausage) topped with some butter. Neither healthy nor light, but for middle aged men with a traditional swiss upringing this seems to hit a sweet spot. At least that’s what the glance around the dining room tells me. The french fries aren’t good, they seem to be some kind of McCain’s oven fries. The place does leave the impression, that its always full because of its location and not necessarily its food – prices are okay:
