Lucky Dumpling Zurich

My personal highlight: The filling makes the difference! My favorite choice: Hun Dun Soup with hand made dumplings filled with pork, shrimps, ginger & vegetables on a super tasty stock, all Glutamate free

Sunday is the day to have brunch with friends. This time my hungry stomach brings me to Zurich, Kreis 4 in Langstrasse 10. Here I get introduced to a Chinese Brunch at Lucky Dumpling. The manager Angel Liu welcomes us. I let her choose our brunch menu.

What to expect from a Chine Brunch?

The name says it all, we dive into Chinese food traditions. Please, forget about eggs and ham or croissant and jams. Here we experience a variety of dishes served as Chinese tapas (small served plates). I love the fact that you can share these small plates with your friends and eat you through the brunch menu.

Dumplings in different sizes, shapes and fillings

Get salty and sweet steamed dumplings in different sizes, shapes and ways of preparation.
Find Dumplings or Baos (an other form of a dumpling measuring about 10 cm) filled with vegetables, pork, shrimps spiced up with herbs and a delicious hand made soya sauce. Absolutely recommendable is the Hun Dun Soup. The stock is super tasty, clear and comes with wontons (additional form of dumpling in a triangle shape). It has a pork, shrimp, ginger and vegetable filling I found outstanding.

I love the sweet dumplings, filled with red beans or pumpkin. The fried dumpling with a sesame coat is super delicious, too.

All dumplings are made from scratch and fresh every day. The meat used is from regional suppliers (Zurich Oberland). I absolutely recommend the fresh brewed mint tea that comes with orange juice, too.

Talking to the owner Angel Liu I understand that she takes care about healthy food, it’s her lifestyle, too. That is why all dumplings are Glutamate free at Lucky Dumpling.

Additional tapas on the menu are: Chinese Burger made with a special pita bread bun and a slow cooked beef and pork meat added with fresh herbs and salad. Get an overview of the brunch menu here. Brunch is served Saturday and Sunday. The place is recommendable for dinner or lunch, too.

Put Put Japanese Takeaway

putput

My personal highlight: Understanding that Japanese Curry is a real traditional food cooked at home, it brings the family together at one table

I am glad I found this cute little Japanese Takeaway in Zurich. It is located at Stauffacherstrasse 101 very close to Langstrasse. The place is a real Japanese bijou. Stepping inside the typical fancy Japanese Design stands out. Their charactere named „putput“ is a cute chick in the manga style. You can admire it all around the shop. There are fancy putput objects as home made mugs or bags to purchase, too.

The owner Nao Shirato explains to me, that the food they serve is inspired by the recipes of her grandmother. That’s Japanese cuisine her family used to eat at home.

The curry base is a home made paste. Its taste is not comparable to a spicy Indian curry with coconut milk. I found this curry mild, thicker in the consistency.  The Potato inside where fingerlicking, a real value to my curry experience.

The choice of menu is simple. Different menus are available for vegetarians and non.

Try the super tasty home made Japanese Curry (veggie or chicken), the Gyudon bowl with beef, the Onigri (rice sandwich with meat, fish or veggie) or different buns filled with veggies, meat or azuki (sweet beans).  The home made ice tea is recommendable, too.
The miso soup tastes very authentic and comes with the main dish if you like. Choose the salad instead if this doesn’t match your choice.

Menu are available for 11.5o – 15.50 CHF. Get a bun for 6 CHF,  Gyudon 13.50-15.50 CHF, Onigiri 5.50 CHF

Opening hours

Monday 11:30 — 14:00
Tuesday — Friday 11:30 — 21:00
Saturday 14:00 — 21:00

Yume Ramen Zurich

My personal highlight: Watching Chef Ben creating my miso ramen in the kitchen and explaining to me every detail about what is relevant to get elastic handmade ramen noodles and telling me that I need to slurp my soup to get the best taste

Food rumors are spreading so fast in our tiny city. It makes it very easy t to hear about the new places in town. Yume Ramen is now offering Ramen soups at Römergasse 6, Zürich.

Behind Yume Ramen stands a heritage of Japanese Cuisine. Lorenz Muster, the Manager of Sala of Tokyo brought this concept to the city with the goal to introduce to Zurich People the authentic Japanese gastro pub lifestyle called Izakaya. In Japan people to stop by at this easy food bar for lunch or after work. The ambience at Yume Ramen is completely like that, easy and homy. The fact that a traditional Swiss „beiz“ was here before having a bit of a 80’s and retro interior, makes that place even more authentic.

Chef Ben introduces me to the uniqueness of Yume Ramen. It’s the soup stock that is made fresh from scratch every day and cooked for hours either with pork bones or a veggie stock. The selection of ramen is variegated, guests appreciate that. Pork, Beef, Chicken or Veggie, all available on the menu.

The noodles are from Swiss natural flour (no transgenic crops!). They rest for a few days to mature the perfect taste and get knead by hand carefully. They serve up to 150 ramen soups per day, that is obviously the favorite dish of the guests.

Feeling the passion of Chef Ben and his staff is viral. You understand fast that people here love what they do. The result in your bowl is the prove.

The Yume Ramen menu

Enjoy a Japanese beer and fresh Ramen, Donburi or Otsumami appetizers. Take a Bento Boxes to go if you are in a hurry, meat or veggie. They make fresh home made lemonade with pure fruit pulp. I love the fact that it is not too sweet. Products are from best gastro suppliers.

In the evening the best choice are Otsumami. The variety of the appetizers is fantastic and perfect to share with friends. Get some advises from the lovely staff, they are happy to help you.

The quality/price ratio is absolutely okay. Ramen soups start with 19 CHF.

The selection of Japanese Whisky is the biggest available in Zurich. I am fascinated by the labels of the bottles! Ben recommends the brand Habiki or Nikea. Guests love the label Karuizawa.

Sala of Tokyo

salaoftokyo

My personal highlights: Authentic Japanese cuisine prepared from Japanese Chefs. A 4 course dinner with Wagyu-Beef or a sushi variation for lunch

Japanese delicacies since 1981

Sala of Tokyo exists since 1981 and is one of the most authentic and traditional Japanese restaurants in Switzerland. It’s located at Limmatstrasse 29. It’s famous for offering quality and fresh dishes created by only Japanese Chefs.
Getting these Chefs to Switzerland is a big administrative challenge says Manager Lorenz Muster, but considering the aim of offering a memorable Japanese food experience, having such a setup is essential. Once at the restaurant you immediately feel the authenticity of sala of tokyo.

What to choose

Start with an appetizer as the Tempura. Experience an artful plate of sushi or the excellent Japanese Kobe Wagyu Beef prepared on charcoal grill. The Tokubatsu-Kaiseki Dinner or the classical shabu shabu dinner invite to be explored, too.

Lunch-Bento boxes to go or special Sushi-Lunch offers

The ambiance at Sala of Tokyo is ideal to spend a tranquil dinner. Watch the Chef preparing the sushi and get fascinated by their knife skills!
A sake after dinner will round your meal off, they have a great selection!
