East Asian Supermarkets in Zurich? Asian members?

Hi. Everyone. I'm new to EF. This is my second post. Please don't groan at me! (I searched a bit with "Zurich, Asian" on EF but it yielded little for me. Please point it out if I missed some old threads.)

So, I recently move to Switzerland (near Zurich) from Canada. A big difference so far for me is hmm that there are no big asian superstores here, like T&T in Canada. So are there any relatively big asian supermarkets in Zurich (especially east Asian ones like Chinese, Korean and Japanese food)? What about Brugg? (if you know where it is lol)

Another difference is that I hardly see any Asians around here in Brugg. I'm wondering if it would be better to move to Zurich so there will be more chances meeting new people here, as I am residing at a guest house temporarily. I don't like being alone In Canada, there are so many Asians. Even Germany has more than Switzerland!

Where are all the asians living in Zurich? Swiss German is like... hmm.. okay.. My standard German sucks too. And So where are the expats? lollllll

Anyway, it gets a bit random. I need to go shopping >.<

New Asia market in Feldstrasse is pretty big....get the tram 2 or 3 and jump off at Kalkbreite.
I live near the store and it's awesome for selling pretty much everything you'd need...even random Asian beers (such as San Miguel, the Filipino version).
