Some have argued that Swiss food doesn’t exist, in certain respects. The point is that the best Swiss dishes typically come from many regional food and specialties found across country’s 26 cantons. You will find top Swiss meals with strong French, German and north Italian influences, with bases of Swiss cheeses, potatoes and traditional Swiss ingredients that were readily available to the first Alpine farmers. You certainly won’t go hungry in Switzerland.

Swiss pizza and sausage is a mélange of cultures, which reflects in the food. The influence of the three main cultures (German, French, and Italian) are prevalent. You can grab an Italian pizza, which is much less doughy and greasy than the American counterpart, or a warm cheesy flatbread.
There are numerous stands to grab a German sausage. I am not a big meat person and especially not sausage (the whole idea really creeps me out), so I am not the best person to discuss the different types of wurst.
All I know is that at the stands, it is not just hotdogs. There are normally three or more types of sausages to choose from. I know the white one is veal. They are served with a Büürli (white bread bun) and mustard, and I heard that one of the best is from Sternen Grill in Zürich.
Specifically Swiss foods are of course available, like Raclette or Zurich’s own Zürigschnätzlets (finely sliced veal with mushrooms in a cream sauce).
Sweet pie : If you have a sweet tooth, then you must try this. Nusstorte is a nut tart, comprising of short crust pastry, caramelised sugar, cream and chopped walnuts. If you talk about Switzerland street food, there are mainly two varieties of nusstorte found here, namely Bünder nusstorte and the Engadiner nusstorte, named after the Graubünden canton where it originated. The perfect fusion of cream and nuts is drool-worthy and treated as an absolute delight for dessert lovers.
