Re: Ethnic Grocery Stores

Hi all
There is a small Indian store on Universitätsstrasse in Zurich called "Partho Stores", named after the owner's son. Mrs. Bannerjee, who owns it also cooks take aways and I personally find the food cheap and almost of the home cooked variety :-)

For grocery, around Langstrasse:

1) Aggarwal's Indian and Oriental specialities
Langstrasse 62
8004 Zürich/ZH
044 241 28 79

Around Aggarwal's there are many Indian, bangladeshi, Pakistani and
Sri Lanksn stores as well.

Around Stampenbach/Zurich HB:

2) Narinder Nath
India Gate Oriental Store
Beckenhofstrasse 16
8006 Zürich/ZH

3) Bombay Store, just off the Central Stop.

Personally I dont find the Bombay store too convenient (limited
India Gate is moderately well stocked with spices and other stuff.
The owner is also friendly and sometimes makes fresh rotis and
chappatis for me since I smile nicely :-)
Aggarwal is almost a one-stop shopping stop.:-)
The Bangladeshi store off Stauffacher tram stop is good if you want
some home style fish ( albeit frozen) :-) Of couse they do not taste
even nearly the same since they come over frozen but, if you are a
Bengali ( which probably you are not, bless you :-)), you could not
care less :-)...once you see a Hilsa fish after 5 years in the
schweiz, your emotions take over and you don't really stop to think
if its fresh or not :-)
