I had never been a fan of vegetarian restaurants. Somehow, it felt unjustifiable to pay and not eat fish, meat or at least a warm pasta plate. Vegetables were always meant to be a side dish.
Times change and people change too. I recently became increasingly health aware so the dilemma vegetarian or non-vegetarian switched to vegetarian or nothing at all. So Tibits was there for me. I became a customer many years ago and visit, irregularly but certainly ever since.
Tibits is located in Seefeld near some of my other favorite spots, for example Bad Utoquai (check the Bad Utoquai article). So I pass by very often. In the summer the tables outside are always full. The interior is also quite well occupied and lively during all seasons.
The core offering is the salad buffet with cold and warm delicacies. One of the advantages of not serving meat, fish etc. is that the salad menu becomes quite creative. Ah yes, these tomatoes with tofu, …slurp…
There are also fruit and dessert dishes in the same area. Sandwiches and ice cream are also available.
If you think that vegetarian means budget, you are wrong; to take care of a big hunger through the salad buffet, you end up paying the price of a typical meal in any restaurant. But it is worth it.
I have the vague impression that women outnumber men in Tibits. And in Zurich women are quite beautiful and elegant (not a vague impression but a fact).
