Ready-Made Food from the Coop and the Outdoor Markets
Typical dishes and sandwiches to take away as a perfect alternative.
Good, nice and cheap
If you don't have much time to visit the city or you simply don't want to spend much money on food (yes, all right, the prices can be a little high sometimes), there is a variety of options for you to try the typical and traditional cuisine in another way. First of all, as an idea for those who don't have time to waste, there are the street food stalls: you'll find takeaway food throughout the entire city, so you can try the bratwurst, which is a kind of tasty hot dog; salty and spongy rolls in the shape of a plait known as bretzein, or the famous sweets made of almonds in the shape of a fish called mandelfisch. Another one of the more fashionable options in Zurich is to buy food to takeaway from Coop establishments, where they offer ready-made, homemade food with a large range to choose from, and several of these Coops are spread around the whole city.
