New Restaurant In Zurich

For all you Mexican Cuisine Lovers, this article is for you. Opened just 4 months ago, El Alebrije has made a tasty impact in Kreis 6, Zurich. The people are extremely friendly and proud to share about their newly opened Restaurant and where their ingredients come from. The owner of El Alebrije, was born in Mexico and had a dream of opening up his own Mexican Restaurant. He has truly made this restaurant authentic as he has imported much of the decor from Mexico including the chairs, artwork & dishes. One thing that El Alebrije is proud for not importing is the food. They have collaborated with a farm here in Switzerland in planting the herbs & vegetables they need to make every tasty meal by hand, making it truly authentic and traditional. I absolutely loved the experience and think you will too!

After a great start with a classic Mexican beer and their signature Jalapeno Margarita it was time to try the starters.

Next we tried Tamal de frijoles en mole: Corn, two types of beans and the best homemade mole I have ever had all wrapped in a delicious tamale.

To round it all off, Churros rellenos y helado de yogurt con arándanos – Churro, cooked banana, chocolate served alongside a light homemade raspberry-yoghurt ice cream

It truly was a lovely experience. Especially being from the United States, we do miss Mexican here in Switzerland. This will definitely be a place we will come back to.
