As a Filipino moving to Switzerland soon, I find this thread very useful. Has anyone seen any Filipino stores around Zurich or Aargau?
Yes, I've seen one in Oerlikon but I don't know the address. But if you take the train to Oerlikon, get on tram 10 or 14 towards the city and get off at Salersteig (2 stops). You will have passed it on the right-hand-side, before getting to this tram stop. So when you get off, you will have to walk back a bit.

I'm hoping someone would be able to help out here with the address? It's around the corner where laughing lemon give their cooking classes.

Re: Ethnic Grocery Stores

There is another store at Schmeide Weidikon (Tram No. 14, 9, Bus number 33)- opposite to Migros, where you get a good variety of Indian vegetables, fruits, spices etc. The name of the shop is Barkat.

Also there is a SriLankan shop at Mannesseplatz -one stop from Schmeide Weidikon if you take Bus No. 33. Dont know the name of the shop - but its right next to Coop. Personally, I didnt quite like going there, coz the store has some fish smell - which I dont quite like! But I have heard that they have good variety of fresh fish. I am not a fish eater so cant comment on that - but you might wanna check it out. Of course you have the usual Indian/Sri lankan vegetables, spices etc as well.

Re: Ethnic Grocery Stores

Oops..I just saw that Barkat has already been mentioned in this thread! I had only read Page No 1, didnt see the thread continues to the next page, and I thot this thread needs my two cents

BTW, they also have a branch at Letzigrund (Tram 2). Right at that stop.

A while ago I worked in Hohlstrasse Altstetten right by Europabrucke... Just there there was an Indian shop which also had an Indian "take away". It was the best place I knew to get good priced rice (25Kg bags though :-) ) and the fulll range of spices. The take away food was awesome but really home market stuff. If any of you have been to and eaten in Bradford you will know what I mean. Proper Indian food run by proper Indians not made for the home market at all. Richard
Having lived in the Bradford area I do know what you mean. The only decent curry I got in Paris was when I announced that I came from Bradford, so they did me a special

This I simply must try.

I have seen a specialty store on the limmat str. on the way to escher weiss platz. When you're here just check out the trams going toward escher weiss platz, can't miss it on a corner on the left side.

Apologies for the scant info

Hi, have any of you come across pandan leaves in the (Southeast) Asian supermarkets? I think the plant is also called 'screw pine' (ouch) or 'Schraubenpalme'.

Thanks,
Nu-Yen
This is available at the china-vietnam supermarket in Militär Str. Zürich. Jump off the 31 bus stop at kanonengasse, walk toward lang str. and you will find it on the right (approx. 5 shops down from the bus stop).... in summer open on a sunday as well, and this place has the biggest range of all things asian that i have seen in Zürich thus far.

Checked this place out. Certainly not the biggest range - the ones in neu affoltern(Thanh HungWehntalerstrasse 280 8046 Zürich) and near kalkbreite tram stops (New Asia MarketFeldstrasse 24 8004 Zürich)are a lot bigger.

hey Nanda

Is the Thanh Hung store almost by the traffic lights at Neu Affoltern?
I think i've been in this one before and thought it had a pretty good range of things and quite large too....

Yes, it's close to the lights, across from a small migros. The closest by stop is for bus 62 and 32 - Neu Affoltern.

They've changed and added many things recently and I find that I have to ask for what I want now.

BTW - I got a surprise the other day when I found fresh rice noodles (kway teow/hor fun) at the asian place nr Oerlikon Bhf. It was gone very quickly though.

Thought I'd add info about the only Mexican grocery place I know that's on Josefstrasse, stone's throw from the Zurich Hbf.

Shop info and also for their online shop: http://www.elmaiz.ch


~ Nanda.
For those of you in Basel there is El Sol, which has recently moved to Allschwil, and has better parking than before. The selection isn't quite as good as El Maiz, but the important things like tortillas are available. The owner and employees speak excellent english. They'll also ship anywhere in Switzerland.

Ah ok thats the same store i was in then.
I really like it. I thought it was cool how you can buy crates of asian beer aswell. must pick myself up some Tiger beer this weekend.
Its crazy the price difference for curry pastes, prawns etc compared to coop, globus, jemoli etc.

Re: Ethnic Grocery Stores

I think you're searching for Paniermehl moumita. It can be found in your local food store.

Re: Ethnic Grocery Stores

If you're going to coop in the real world, it might be near the baking section. I remember seeing it there in coop oerlikon.
