Chilli sauce!

Hi All, I have just moved to Zurich from London and I am loving my life here but one thing is missing: ENCONA WEST INDIAN HOT PEPPER SAUCE. Does anyone know a shop that sells it in Zürich?

Cheers

Andy

Re: Chilli sauce!

I just brought some back after a business trip.. but I think the only place I have seen it was in Edeka in over the border in Germany. Possibly I have seen it in Globus also.

Re: Chilli sauce!

Take a look at the Turkish and other ethnic stores off Langstrasse, I'm sure I've seen some there.

Re: Chilli sauce!

One of the Indian stores has it. I think it was Agarwal's on Kernstrasse

Re: Chilli sauce!

There were Encona sauces in Aldi recently, but I don't think they had the West Indian one, and I don't know if the others are still in stock.

One shop that doesn't stock it, but will have plenty of other sauces to tickle your tastebuds is this... http://www.hotsaucen.ch/
It's on Wattstrasse, just round the corner from platform 8 of Zurich Oerlikon station. There's also the Asia Stores at the Sihlquai entrance of Hauptbahnhoff and again, opposite platform 8 of Oerlikon station.

Re: Chilli sauce!

This might sound weird but I like it on Fish finger sandwiches. No other sauce cuts it I'm afraid and I have tried a few.... Thanks, I will check out Aldi though!

We bring back Bajan hot pepper sauce from my sister-in-law in Barbados whenever we can (which is all too infrequent, unfortunately ), it's great mixed with ketchup in a bacon sandwich or with a good fry-up.
