Hi Aditid,

I hadn't heard about jain food before. Can you list some food that you do regularly eat? I'm a Pescatarian (no meat, but fish is ok) and find it very easy to find food in supermarkets and restaurants, but your diet is much more strict. Have you considered renting an apartment with kitchen and do you own cooking?

There are several Indian restaurants in Zurich but I haven't been to them myself. Hiltl is vegetarian restaurant and has vegan options (similar to the Jain diet I believe).

This topic has come up a lot on our forum over the years - be sure to use the search box on our website to find other people's questions and answers on the topic.

Also, have a look at Zurich tourism's web page on vegan restaurants: https://www.zuerich.co m/en/visit/vegan-and-vegetarian
