Currently in town: the Street Food Festival! With myself being a little obsessive about food, this was an event I was not able to simply ignore. Easy said, easy done: Yesterday I jumped on my bike and rode down to Adliswil. For all those that are still intersted in going, today is your last chance! I was amazed by some of the creations I saw at this festival. Some foods are well known, others I have heard of though not tasted and further others, I have never seen in my life. Cultureal influences were seen everywhere, food innovations were presented to the crowd and the music playing in the background was amazing. Whatever direction I looked, people were happy, smiling and moving to the beats in the background – obviously; there is probably nothing more satisfying than food (atleast, in this scenario!). Luckily I have decided to take my camera with me to this amazing event, which is why I want to share some of my impressions with you!
My first stop (above) was at a huge, silver, shiny caravan trailer. Not only was it huge, shiny and silver – but it was filled with deliciousness in forms of waffles on a stick! The company behind this cute idea is barliner.ch, and they actually rent out their services. How cool is that? My next party might need to involve a shiny caravan with waffles on a stick – so exciting!
These delicious Bao Burgers caught my eyes in an instant second. I have never seen such burgers before and was fascinated by the smell of the spices that hit me with delightfullness. Not only did they smell amazing and look great – but they looked extremely healthy – the fact still being, they are burgers!
When I saw this young lad (above) with his uber-cool orange sunglasses, the berlin-style-beard and amazing hipster look, I almost (for an instant second) forgot about the amazing, innovative food behind him: Ice-cream. Although SUGAR SUGAR SUGAR does not have their own shop in Zurich yet, I am convinced they will be famous in every other restaurant serving their ice-creams. The secret behind the icre-cream? Well, it’s not just the ordinary vanilla or chocolate flavour we are more than used to seeing. They have created amazing flavours such as basil-balsamico, cucumber on yoghurt-with-pumkin-oil or even more exotic: saffron with champagne. How amazing (seriously!), do these combinations sound? I heard the basil-balsamico is the new insider! One thing is for sure – I cannot wait to find these delicious flavours all over Zurich. Good luck to this amazing start-up!
Let’s be honest with ourselves, are you getting as hungry as I am right now? Luckily, it’s almost that time again: Breakfast! With that, I wish you all a great sunday!
