Thread Recreated

I have a rule. Never post anything online that you wouldn’t say to a persons face. But it really is amazing how quickly online arguments escalate to nuclear level and often over the most trivial topics. With that in mind a group of actors decided to reconstruct some of these threads…with what i think are pretty hilarious results. Check out their channel on YouTube for more videos. 

She's Vegan? I Never Met Herbivore.

Last week the World Meat Free Week took place: A week without meat. As a child i couldn’t conceive a life without meat but attitudes and cuisine has moved on so much. So if you want to try a week without meat I’ve put together a list of some of my favourite vegan treats. The journey travels through the city, and from burgers to the exotic and whilst not all of the restaurants are vegan or even vegetarian they all serve wonderful vegan food.  Bild: DaizySharing Is Caring In my opinion shared plates are best at «Daizy,» in the Binz area of town. «Daizy,» turned me head to such a degree that i returned with all my friends. And everyone could find something they liked from a pretty comprehensive vegan selection.  If you are out and about on a Thursday then i can recommend «Zum Goldenen Fass.» They serve a «Vegan Tavolata,» for an unbeatable CHF 35. Bild: Beetnut Souperman III If you love soup then there are three great choices depending on where you are in the city. I can recommend «Beetnut» in Europaallee, «Roots» at the main station or Schanzengraben and finally, «Simply Soup» in Kreis 4 nearby Bahnhof Wiedikon. Bild: Dapur Fancy an Indian? If a bit of Asian spice gets the mouth watering then take tram 14 to Oerlikon and try «Dapur». Their Indonesian food will cart you to Jakarta in no time. If you prefer the taste of the sub-continent take the tram a little further…or to the opposite end of the line. Because at both ends of the 14 tram there is a «Tamarind Hill», an Indian restaurant with a great selection of vegan food.    Bild: Barranco / Nadine Kädi Something New?My new discovery in district 4 is the Peruvian restaurant «Barranco». This is not only a dream for vegans but for all people who like good food. (read my review here) On the menu are four wonderful vegan dishes that stand as equals (or superiors,) amongst their meaty counterparts.   Bild: Samses Buffet? I love a buffet for lunch but in the evening too? There is a fantastic vegan buffet at «Sacred» and if you have a vegetarian boyfriend/girlfriend you’ll know, (or be sick to death of,) «Samses».        View this post on Instagram A post shared by Stripped Pizza (@strippedpizza) on Mar 31, 2019 at 12:21pm PDT Fancy a Pizza? For vegan pizza the road always leads me to «Stripped Pizza» because the selection is as big as the taste. That reminds me, i’ll have to visit soon... Burger Me!My pick for vegan burgers is the ironically named «The Butcher» where they serve an excellent falafel burger. I’m not a massive fan of beetroot but the beetroot and hemp patty was surprisingly good.  Bild: SacredScream For Ice Cream? Most sorbets are vegan so you’ll find a vegan option in most gelateria. If you  want more choice (or can’t work out what’s vegan and what’s not,) the «Vegelateria» is the place for you. My Extra Tip For The Summer: Chuck a couple of Falafel, a pita bread and hot peppers on the grill. Once the falafel and peppers are in the bread add some tomato-soy-yoghurt mix for a delicious vegan kebab. En Guete.

iPod not on iPod

What is the classic Zurich night? Well it often ends up in Zukunft and this Wednesday we have the extra treat of snowboard legend and Olympic gold medalist, Iouri Podladtchikov, or iPod, taking to the turntables to do a DJ set. It’s always interesting to see a celebrity take to a different discipline and even more interesting to see what tunes they spin. Let's hope he rotates records as well as he does in the halfpipe.Wednesday 8pm, Zukunft, Dienerstrasse 33, 8004  

Velo, Is It Me You're Looking For?

Yes, Saturday is Rooftop Day. But what if you have no way of getting to all of these terraces and rooftops. Well, head to Helvetiaplatz for the Velo Borse. Held regularly, by Pro Velo Zurich, it’s a great place to pick up a bike or get rid of an unwanted one. There are some really good bargains. Have fun with your new wheels.Saturday 8am - 3pm, Helvetiaplatz, 8004
