Re: Aussie Food - Tim Tams & Vegemite

However, I've heard there are two places in Switzerland I can buy Vegemite, Orell Füssli, on Bahnhofstr. Zürich apparently stocks it in the basement with the English book section. Also, I'm aware of "mullum australia" in Rapperswil however from looking at their website - it's the biggest load of overpriced sheisse I've ever seen in my life. Oh, apart from the "Outback Lodge" which has absolutely nothing on the menu that's actually your standard Aussie meal apart from VB (beer).
To be honest, Orell Füssli on Bahnhofstr. is the easiest place to get Vegemite, but it'll cost you your left nut.
That being said, it's still sorta worth it, and you can always put in an order with someone travelling back to Oz to bring an extra jar back.

If only you'd posted this two weeks ago I could have swung you a spare jar of it.

The" Outback" MUST be avoided at all costs. In fact, you should lose your citizenship status if caught frequenting this establishment.
It is pure fraud to state that this place is in anyway associated with Australia.

For Aussie beer, try the shop 'Drinks of the World'
Don't encourage the man.

This is time for all travelling Australians to experience the joys of European beer and escape the dogma that the cats piss we drink is called beer.

In saying that, look for "Chopfab" in the Coop supermarket, they have an Australian Pale Ale which is remarkably similar to Coopers, but better.

Almost anything German or Belgian is a better beer.

Oktoberfest begins soon - get amongst it !!!

The Swiss equivalent is called Cenovis and is similar to Marmite and Vegemite
(finger hovers dangerously close to the groan button)

Cenovis is NOT like Vegemite - period !
