#JaneUnChainedEUROPE LIVE at Haus Hiltl! This is the world’s oldest vegetarian restaurant and it’s right in the center of Zürich, Switzerland! Founded in 1898 by Ambrosius Hiltl, it is listed in the Guinness World Records and is proudly run by the fourth generation of the family! It now has a number of locations but this is the flagship! Wow! While not entirely vegan, it has tons of vegan options marked by a “V” in a leafy form! That includes vegan margarine! Hiltl is famous for its astounding buffet, open 365 days a year. Let’s check it out!
All you have to do at this buffet-style restaurant is fill up your plate with amazing food and they will weigh your plate at the checkout. This restaurant has a huge array of options for any vegan to choose from. Everything looks so appetizing and Jane is trying to avoid having a 100lb plate! Hiltl sure doesn’t look anywhere near its age on the inside, with its updated rustic yet modern design.
This restaurant has plenty of space for its diners and it has a giant outdoor seating area that wraps around the building! Can we please get upscale vegan buffets in America now?? We don’t have any we know of any yet, but if you are ever in Zurich be sure to stop by Hiltl and try their vegan mac and cheese, onion rings, and tofu tikka masala! This place is sure to satiate almost any of your vegan cravings!
