African Grocery Stores

Does anyone happen to know of an African grocery store in the Zürich area? Or even further afield?

Specifically I am looking for teff and berbere spie mix (used in Ethiopian cooking).

Thank you,

Gretchen

Re: African Grocery Stores

Vaguely remember an African food shop on Neugasse, near Langstrasse (Limmatside of rail tracks, see here: http://www.gis.zh.ch/gb/AdrGB.asp?ap...ch$Neugasse$35 ). But I think it was more West-African...

If all else fails, make your own berbere

All the ingredients can be had in chinese/tamil/indian shops.

Unfortunately the ethiopean restaurant "Marathon" on Zurlindenstrasse is no more (it's now a pizzeria), or I'd have pointed you there to inquire about teff flour.

Edit: bingo!
