Want a great burger in Zurich? Zic Zac

A few weeks ago, just around Australia Day, Jace was in the mood for a burger and he recalled seeing this place on one of his 'big night outs.' So off we went to Zic Zac for a bit of American nibbles.

Zic Zac is in the heart of it all, and it actually is probably better known for the Zic Zac Rock and Roll Hotel that is in the same building. If I didn't live here, I would be keen to try the hotel out for the kitsch.

We started with some wings - and let's just get it out now - no one makes wings "the right way" here so don't even sweat the disappointment. The closest you will get is Hooters and even then I am not a big fan. That is the #1 thing I will be scoffing down when I go back home for a visit, with a refillable glass of diet coke. Word.

The burgers on the other hand were not half bad... and huge portions. I had to remind myself that I was not indeed back in the States. I had the Caesar burger with a garlic aoli (do not eat this when on a date, the garlic was STRONG) and parmesan cheese. Yum.

I also found out ONLY TOO LATE that they also have a bottomless homemade iced tea on offer. I am going back for that alone come Spring or Summer.

Don't let the pathetic facade disuade you from going into the Zic Zac. It is huge yet intimate inside and I wouldn't doubt that they pile the tables aside sometimes and get down after hours. Give it a go sometime - and don't forget the iced tea!

for those of us watching our 401k's drop like rocks, how much does that burger cost?

Jessica said...

Good point... the burgers were about 20 something francs each... not cheap, but really good.

Oh that place looks incredible! I think they make pretty good burgers in Switzerland for everything they add to them. The best place I've ever tried many times is in Aaurau in old town.. A must try. I'll have to ask Pflight once again for the name...

Bottomless ice tea?? That alone is worth putting on the list of food places to visit. But only when the craving for American style food and ice tea is too strong to resist.

Thats very rare! I never had free refills of iced tea here. will check it out :)

Shaun said...

Tried it and loved it. Great burgers and good recommendation!!!!

Jessica said...

Thanks, Shaun! Glad you enjoyed it. Did you have the iced tea? Is it in fact bottomless? With all the disbelief in the comments I am beginning to wonder if I heard the waiter correctly or not. Thanks!

Shaun said...

Sorry I didnt have the iced tea... when I have a burger I want to be as decadent as I possible can and therefore had.... a coke... go figure...
