Shirataki Noodles

Anyone know where one can buy these noodles in Switzerland?

For those who love pasta, like me, but like to stay healthy these noodles might be a perfect alternative. If you've never heard of them you can read more about them here:

Re: Shirataki Noodles

I bought some at Yumihana last weekend, the Korean store just off Bahnhofstrasse.

Haven't eaten them yet...

You can get them at Uchitomi in Geneva. They come in a plastic bag with water. Don't be scared if they smell like squid when you open it they are like that but once rinsed and cook it's ok. I only use them for Japanese cuisine and they are really good for you. They say it cleans your intestine. Just realized I was responding to an old thread. Hope it helps anyone else!

Re: Shirataki Noodles

Just curious (never noticed them in CH but know what they are) what they cost? I tried them in UK and thought they were quite ok w/a bit of tamari , but then realised (at UK price of £1.99 - £2.49 a pack) it was pretty expensive for no nutrition...no calories sounds nice until your stomach realises it is filled with water and still hungry

Re: Shirataki Noodles

They are now available at larger Migros.

CHF 2.50 for a 200gm packet. I have yet to try them.

Re: Shirataki Noodles

I stir-fried them Thai Pad Kra Pao style with pork mince, green beans and basil and they were awesome.

I find them very similar to mung bean (cellophane) noodles and eat them at least twice a week.
