A taste of Spain has landed in Zurich. Tapas & Friends offers small bites and healthy portions at very affordable prices.
Catering especially to the lunch crowd, this little restaurant offers a lot of appealing options…both within the restaurant and also for local businesses who are craving a catered lunch which is much more appealing than boring sandwiches and salads!
Upon entering the old Poushe Streudelhaus location, enjoy being greeted by freshly made Tapas and Montaditos on display, with a fun chalkboard menu offering the daily specials. The interior is bright and inviting with wall coverings featuring the traditional tiles of Barcelona. The restaurant is small, but very warm and welcoming.
Tapas of course! and Montaditos: A savory topping mounted on a slice of baguette with traditional tomato spread. There are 3 lunch menus to choose from: The Tapita (3 for CHF 9.50), La Tapa (4 for CHF 12.50), and the Gran Tapa (5 for CHF 15.50)…that means you can add a drink, all for under CHF 20.
Enjoy up to 15 daily options: 6-10 selections for the menus, and 5 additional selections served a la minute – beefsteak with melted camembert, or pimientos del Padrón to just to name a couple!
In addition to our new favorite hausgemachte Bio Lemonade (infused with ginger), Tapas & Friends offers the popular Barcelona Moritz beer, Cava, and a nice house wine selection. The crown jewel in the beer menu is the INEDIT Damm, a truly unique beer crafted by Ferran Adrià – the world’s most award-winning chef – and the Damm brewmasters from Barcelona. Made with barley malt, wheat, hops, coriander, liquorice and orange peel, this is one refreshing reason to visit Tapas & Friends!
Why we Love it:
Just have a look at these beautiful Tortilla de Patata…fresh thinly sliced potatoes which have been poached, combined with eggs and baked to a soft and crispy taste of perfection in every bite.
In addition, the menu is filled with unique infusions, such as a tomato & bufala mozzarella which has been marinated with ginger, soya and olive oil for a tasty combination of unexpected flavors. All croquetas (jamon, shitake mushroom, etc.) are homemade daily and crisped to perfection.
Zuri Girl Tips:
While we wish Tapas & Friends would open their doors for dinner, we are pleased to know they will offer afterwork hours at least on Thursdays…as this is a lovely spot to enjoy a refreshing cerveza and range of tapas.
In addition to traditional tapas, have a look at their daily special and salads! Healthy tapas just got healthier!
