Where is the best Rosti to eat?

Hi
As I have decided to eat only twice while one of them is Hotel Oberland in lauterbrunnen. I would be happy for recommendation for cheese (with no meat) Rösti in one of the following places:
- Lauterbrunnen
- Grindelwald
- Murren
- Wengen
- Lutzern
- Zermatt (maybe we will get there)
- Brunnen on lutzern lake
- Interlaken
- Thun
- Zurich (Maybe we will have time)

I do not care about atmosphere etc. It should ne accessible by foot from center.

There is usually no cheese in the classical Swiss Roesti.

Röschti (the real Swiss-dialect spelling) or Rösti (the Germanized spelling) is rarely on the menu in restaurants, but is commonly eaten at the family dinner table, especially and traditionally on farms.

As simple a dish as it is basically, there are many variations. You got me curious, so I just looked on Google, by inputting in the German Google pages the terms "Rösti Rezepte" (recipes) and the website www.chefkoch.de shows "248 popular recipes"!

It comes with and without meat, and when there is meat, it is usually "Speck" (ham), small bits mixed in; if you're a vegetarian, then you should also know that the fat in which the grated potatoes have been cooked may or may not have animal components, maybe it is even outright lard.

It can be served on its own, or you can sprinkle grated cheese over it, it may be available with grated cheese already on it that then would melt just before the dish comes to you; often it is served with a "Spiegelei", a fried egg (what Americans call "sunny-side-up"), or with a sausage on the side, or as a side dish to other food.

I should think that in all the places you list there should be a restaurant that serves some variety of Röschti. If you do a google search of restaurants in those towns, and look for those that post their menu online, you may get lucky.

E Guete! (The Swiss version of Bon Appetit.)

Now you know everything.
I may just add that Baerner Roeschti (with or without Schtierenoug) is always without cheese.
The most popular Roeschti dish in Swiss Restaurants is Zuerigschnaetzlets (minced veal) mit Roeschti

Don't counfound Swiss Roeschti with Rosti Pontalisson (something completely different).
