Eating in Style in Zurich

(The Limmat River of Zurich)

Probably my favorite part about traveling is eating. I try to be adventurous and always set aside a healthy portion of my travel budget towards food. 

Now, I wouldn't have immediately thought of Zurich as a foodie capital in Europe, but as it turns out there is a thriving restaurant scene in the Zurich West neighborhood. 

Ratha Tep of the NYTimes Travel section did a neat write-up about the region: In Zurich West, Feeding the Hip and the Hungry.  

Here's an excerpt:

Now the area has emerged as the city’s latest culinary hotbed, with serious new restaurants, interesting bars and Zurich’s first permanent covered food market. Their openings are fueled by rapid construction and new infrastructure, including 1.86 miles of tram tracks that made their debut in the district last month, making it easier to hop among the city’s most thrilling spots to eat and drink.

The article includes a pretty diverse list of flavors and places. It's reading posts like these that remind me of how many places I still haven't been. 

Time to get traveling!
