quarkini to the rescue
I wanted to eat 10, but at 1.10sfr a piece, I settled for two
I've complained before about the terrible donuts available in Zurich. But last week I stumbled across Quarkinis at the farmer's market and I'm in love. It's a fluffy raised donut ball, with a slight tang from the quark, rolled in sugar. One reason it's taken me so long to find them is that they are hidden behind the counter, so you have to lean over mounds of other yummy bread to see the little basket of delicious morsels. I saw them at both Helvetiaplatz and Burkliplatz markets and apparently, they are also sold in the stores. Maybe everyone in Zurich already knows about these, but if I help one donut-deprived soul find their way to Quarkinis, I will be happy.
