Where can I buy rice paper in Zurich?

I'm needing some for these summer rolls I make with a Thai dipping sauce. Danke!

Try Thai shop just at top of josefstrasse near the hauptbahnhof in Zurich - several other shops to try along there too - they sound yummy maybe you could post the recipe if you have time?.....

Re: Where can I buy rice paper in Zurich?

There is an Asian market in the Zurich HB (located on the side of the HB where the Swiss National Museum is -- kind of near the Starbucks that's over there).

The Asian market is located across from the entrance to Tracks 21 & 22 on that side of the HB.

So maybe they would have some...

Jelmoli's grocery store also has an Asian foods section with stuff you can't find in Coop or Migros. I get my Japanese curry paste there. Yummm.

Try Lian Hua. They're (as far as I know!) the biggest Asian shop in Zurich. They definitely have them - I bought some last week!

They have two outlets. 15% off on Saturdays.

Lian Hua Wiedikon GmbH -
Birmensdorferstrasse 94, Zurich - 044 450 31 88
Lian Hua GmbH -
Schaffhauserstrasse 269, Zurich - 043 288 95 08

Re: Where can I buy rice paper in Zurich?

Thanks for the replies. I'll def check these places out. There isn't really a recipe as such as I tend to vary the filling depending on my mood. Plus, it's fun to experiment.

One I do like quite a bit though: shrimp, mashed avocado, strips of cucumber, grated carrot and shredded lettuce or sprouts. You can add in a teensy bit of fresh cilantro too. You just wrap these bad boys up and then dip them in soy sauce and/or a Thai sweet chili sauce. Very flavorful and refreshing/healthy for a summer meal. =)

Re: Where can I buy rice paper in Zurich?

I've bought some at Migros in Baden, so I assume you might be able to find it in relatively easily in a Migros in Zurich as well.

The only thing is that they are a bit small.

Make me? Force me to do anything and I'll smack you with my wooden cooking spoon. Maybe even throw a few shrimp at you.

Re: Where can I buy rice paper in Zurich?

Thanks again for all the suggestions. I hadn't seen them in a Migros before but I think it's because I'd only been in smaller ones. Today, we got them in the Kloten Migros. =D
