There is something about the air in Zürich that makes me want to eat bratwurst almost everyday. They are delicious, but I think I've eaten more veal in the past month than I have in the last 28 years combined! Within only a couple weeks in Zürich we had already found a favorite wurst spot - the Vorderer Sternen near Bellevue. They serve it with incredibly spicy mustard, which is good but a bit intense so I always ask for ketchup to cool things down a bit. Unlike a hotdog, a bratwurst is not served in a roll, but rather with a roll. It seems like generally people take a bite or two of the wurst and then a bite of bread. I still prefer eating the two together, but it's a bit of a mouthful considering how large the rolls are. The rolls themselves are delicious with a crispy, crusty outside and a flakey soft inside.
