For the best wurst in Zurich, the Sternen Grill is the place to go. Bratwurst, that is. This much-loved sausage grill joint has a takeaway on ground-level so grab one to go if you’re just passing through. Although be prepared to queue; this is a beloved Zurich institution, after all. But for those who want to savour every bite in sleek, atmospheric surrounds, head upstairs to the restaurant. And, if the sun’s shining, don’t miss the chance to dine al fresco on the balcony.
The menu isn’t extensive at Sternen Grill, but it’s a matter of quality over quantity, to be sure. After all, when a mighty St. Galler Bratwurst is on offer, served with fiery yellow mustard and Bürli (a perfectly crispy roll from the local Gold Bakery), what else would you order? However, should sausages not be the order of the day, there are salads and fries and other tempting menu items, all, like the wursts, best washed down with a perfectly chilled Sternen beer.
