Where to buy plantains? Basel area

I made some pulled pork tonight and realized just how well some fried plantains would have gone with it Has anyone seen them available in the Basel area?

Thanks for your suggestions!

Down at our end of the country the Asian shops tend to be the local source so I would suggest you have a look in that direction.

I don't know if the same is true in Basel, but in Winterthur, the larger Coop and Migros have plantains. Gemuse bananas.

I think I've seen them elsewhere too, but Géant in St Louis definitely has them.

In coop at least, they're near the more "exotic" - migros too. I always find them near the sweet potatoes, ginger, etc.

Re: Where to buy plantains? Basel area

We saw some at the Crissier Migros yesterday, and actually wondered with the kids what could be done with them and how to eat them

Re: Where to buy plantains? Basel area

we get platanos at the asian store- when they are a bit more than ripe we fry up with a bit of brown sugar or honey or plain and eat with rice and beans.. yumyumyum and when they are not really right we mash up to make patties or balls
