When updating our Alphabet City Game spread sheet, I had an idea: What was my favourite meal in each of those places? So, I gave my self a challenge to come up with them.
Not that I meant to leave you dangling (as if!) my Z cities are: Zagreb, Zurich and Zermatt.
Well Zermatt wins – that’s easy because it involed cheese!
I have a no-resto-repeat rule on vacation, but this only applies to the current vacation. We’re allowed to go back on subsequent vacations and that’s what we did here in 2006 and 2011
Restaurant Whymper-Stube http://www.whymper-stube.ch/restaurant.html
It was not only memorable because of the cheese, but because of the owner’s name which just happens to figure prominently in my family tree. I got a kick when I saw it on the menu! I wonder just how we are related?
(I look a little stunned in this shot! LOL!! it always makes me laugh when I see it)
In 2006 when we discovered the restaurant, we could not dig in and pig out like we wanted to because my husband was under the weather and I was… let’s just say… unable to ingest more solids until “things got moving again”. Ahem. We had a nice meal, but vowed to come back someday and enjoy a proper meal! And we did!

Very friendly service, good food, nice atmosphere… touristy, but the entire town is!
