Switzerland has some wonderful national dishes, and it is a shame not to try a few of the local delicacies while visiting. Zurich’s most characteristic dish is Zürigeschnätzlets, a chopped veal recipe, with cream and wine sauce, served with a delicious grated potato Rösti. Cheese lovers should visit in winter and enjoy the Swiss favourites of melted cheese fondue and raclette - although they are not specifically from Zurich, they are just as popular here as elsewhere in Switzerland. Whatever cuisine you desire, Zurich can provide: it has one restaurant for every 180 inhabitants. After a hearty meal, head to the main bar-hopping areas of Niederdorf in the Altstadt and the streets around Langstrasse and Zurich West. With the highest concentration of clubs in Switzerland, Zurich can easily justify its reputation as Switzerland’s party city, and night owls flock into the centre at weekends from surrounding areas. For a slightly quieter evening, head to Paradeplatz for a more laidback atmosphere and some lovely bars.
