One of the things that makes Zurich special is the water. The rivers Limmat and Sihl and of course the Zurich Lakeside basin. Therefore, just go with the flow and try out the restaurants by the lake. More traditional Swiss Cuisine you will find here. But, of course, Zurich has very international cuisine to offer, such as Oriental Cuisine, Tapas, Mexican. Being vegetarian is nowadays no problem anymore and the vegan options are growing more and more.
