Vegetarian, Vegan, and Allergy-friendly Food—Vegetarians need never again settle for a limp veggie platter while their companions feast like kings. Vegetarian and vegan options are growing exponentially in number and caliber. Some top gourmet restaurants have exciting plant-based creations, and in cities, more health-minded fast-food-style joints and international eateries with built-in veggie options are popping up frequently. Travelers with food allergies can benefit, too, from this wave, which has also spurred a huge increase in new veg and allergen-free items at grocery stores. Many ski resorts, or anywhere international tourists congregate, have also expanded vegetarian choices, though more rustic places may stick to Swiss fare. Some classic Swiss meals naturally suit vegetarians, such as Wähe—a sweet or savory version of quiche—and fondue, raclette, or Älplermagronen (Swiss-style macaroni and cheese). For vegans, there’s potato Rösti, like hash browns; just make sure the kitchen doesn’t top it with cheese or an egg. And if you’re really stuck, pasta with vegan sauce is a standby that virtually every kitchen can put together in a pinch.
