Ethnic Grocery Stores

I posted this in the restaurants thread but thought it might worth starting a new thread. Never know what's hidden.

It's the biggest I know in Zurich. Relatively new.

Re: Ethnic Grocery Stores

Hi Nanda,

Excellent tips - and you did the right thing to post these things into new threads (otherwise you get one huge thread that gets out of control).

When you post something which is going to stay as a permanent tip, try to also pepper a few keywords around the stuff you are writing - in other words dress it up a little so that when google comes to visit it can figure out the subject and context of what you are posting, thay way there will be more people turning up your posts in google.

Keep them coming!

Re: Ethnic Grocery Stores

I just came across this list.

The good people who do indian cookery cooking classes have it on their website: http://www.indiancookerylessons.com/usefullinks.html


They seem to do well with their cooking classes.

I can also definitely recommend classes at www.laughinglemon.ch
They have great food classes and wine tasting classes which also includes the basics in food-wine matching. I've been to a few of their sessions and they've great so I keep going back. The cost is actually quite good for what you get - a three course meal with great wine at the end.

Their website also has informative links on where to get what when and where.

~ Nanda.

Re: Ethnic Grocery Stores

Just an update. Finally found out about this Turkish shop in Oerlikon that I've heard about. Jack from Laughing Lemon posted this on the expats list.

--------

Alkan Comestibles
Nansenstrasse 4

This is a small side street that is across from the Marktplatz. The store specializes in Turkish and Lebanese products. It is the best place in the area to buy feta cheese (make sure you buy the vacuum-packed ones and not the pre-packaged and labeled variety). The meat here is also quite good, and is a great place to source chicken, lamb, and veal. Neither the husband nor the wife speak english, so basic german skills are necessary if you have questions...

happy shopping...

Re: Ethnic Grocery Stores

Just wanted to add info this Argentinian grocery store/butchers that I received. I've ended up passing this info around, so thought this might be a good place to stick it. This is near Rennweg tram stop, Zurich City.

"The shop is called OJO DE AGUA. They sell lot of argentinean stuff , including beef. It is on Oetenbachgasse 13. "

Re: Ethnic Grocery Stores

Just want to add 2 Asian supermarkets to the list in Oerlikon

First one is right next to Berninaplatz tram stop, on the No. 14 and No.10 trams, sorry don't have the exact address but you can't miss it.

The other is at Bahnhof Oerlikon, coming out of the south exit, directly opposite.

Both have a good supply of fresh ingredients and I use them both regular.

It's in my original post

The address for the one in Berninaplatz:

Lian Hua Asiatische Lebensmittel
Schaffhauserstrasse 269
8057 Zurich

BTW - if you do shop there regularly, ask for a discount card. I think it gives you x% of every purchase.

But it's a great place to shop.

Re: Ethnic Grocery Stores

For anyone in Morges or Vaud area a new Asian foods shop called Ly Thanh has just opened up in rue des Charpentiers in Morges, near the main post office. Surprisingly cheap and has a wonderful selection of fresh produce. Has quickly become part of my weekly shop!

Yes, this was not a very useful post. Charlie - you have to elaborate on this.

Re: Ethnic Grocery Stores

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.

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

Re: Ethnic Grocery Stores

LinHua has a 15% discount on Saturdays- but this week Thursday to Saturday is 20% off. I bought stuff there last week- but things like cinnamon sticks- if you buy the 'indian' branded things- its double the price for half the amount. I walked through, and found many of the same spices in the chinese section for half the price, and double the amount.
