Filipino Restaurant?

Hey guys!

Are there any Filipino restaurants in Switzerland? Like, anywhere in Switzerland? I know there aren't any in Zurich but I will be willing to travel for it when the weather warms up a bit because I miss it! Alternatively, would any Filipinos here like to be my Swiss surrogate mother and cook for me/teach me how to cook Filipino meals? I'm not very good at cooking but I'm willing to learn (missing my mum's cooking!!)

Steph

Re: Filipino Restaurant?

The only Filipino dish that I'm able to cook is adobo, probably the simplest one

Damn! I actually live in Winterthur so it might be even further for you. But anyway, if you ever feel like having a coffee in Zurich, just contact me. I'm always up for meeting some new people

I also enjoy cooking. My kids love adobo and bistek.

Maybe we can cook together or otherwise just meet up for coffee. I'm another Filipina that didn't grow up in the Philippines.

There was, years ago, a nice Philippino Restaurant in the Ground Floor of the Hotel Arlette in Stampfenbachstrasse in Zürich, which is no longer existing. I at in the Golden Asian once and it was excellent.

Before I moved here, I had a Filipino colleague, and she taught me how to do it as she often cooked adobo for her daughter. She said she's not a great cook and what she taught was a simple dish
