  • Beef Sukiyaki Sliders

Japanese food in Zurich is not only classic, but also experimental. If you’re a burger lover, but couldn’t finish a whole one, opt for our sharing sliders, which combines succulent sukiyaki wagyu beef with sake onion, cherry tomato and garlic mayo, sandwiched together in a light and fluffy brioche bun. Delicious! 

  • Fluffy Duck 

Yes, you heard correctly. Japanese food in Zurich also satisfies that sweet tooth – but our Japanese desserts at The Penthouse are also Michelin starred! Our top pic is the Fluffy Duck, which marries the citrus tang of mango and passion fruit mousse with the sweet caramel flavour of the caramelized puffed rice, cut through by the sour blood orange sorbet. And be sure to take a snap for the ‘gram, our Fluffy Duck is quite literally a yellow and orange beaked duck – you’ve got to see it to believe it.
