For over 55 years the Silberkugel has offered more than fast food. It’s a venue with plenty of seating and a popular lunch venue. We decided to join in and also visit for lunch. The venus closes at 8pm, so it’s really a lunch or early fast dinner option.
As a fast food restaurant the choices are simple, there are many burger and salad options and a weekly offer. I ordered the XL silber beefy menu, which was enormous and well priced.
The burger patty is standard fare, but the sauce the burger was drenched in was excellent, a large portion of fries were used to mop up the spillage. A quick and filling option for sure.
The silberkugel has a 50’s american diner feel to it, all the tables are curved around the bar and accessible for the staff without having to walk round lots of tables. It means as a group you’re sat in a line but if you manage to sit on a corner you can talk easily. Your orders are written on a receipt and left with you to pay on the way out, a nice format for a speedy exit.
I’ll be back, I liked the food, service and speed. It’s only a few francs more than mcdonalds and much more tasty. If you’re looking for a fast lunch try one of the venues in Oerlikon or near Enge.
