Re: Fresh cheese in Bern

There is a lot of "Frischkäse" about, Aldi, Lidl, Migros, Coop, but your home town cheese may taste slightly different to these, due to the different ingredients.

Re: Fresh cheese in Bern

The best Frischkäse I have found here is actually the Migro Budget one and it's half the price of Philly.

Re: Fresh cheese in Bern

The Loeb Food Hall in Schauplaztgasse has a *huge* cheese counter with cheeses from all over the place.

Are you new here?

It simply doesn't work like that - the OP is required to ask a fumb duck question providing at most only 35% of the facts or information. This hinders the forum illuminati from dispensing their wisdom - and instead resort to abusing the fumb duck.

It's a dance as old as time itself.

...or even a link to exactly what you are used to. I presume something from Croatia - should be possible to find an image

You mean Turoš?
Actually did you ever try a Turkish shop? They got all kinds of cheese we don't have here.

Globus Delicatessa (though be prepared to pay through the nose for any items from there), Loeb used to have behind the main store a small shop with Delicatessen.

It seems to me what you look for could be something along the line of Ricotta, perhaps a small Italian shop, with a fresh food counter could help as well.


Is it Turoš or Škripavac you are looking for??

For the latter maybe Buffalo Mozzarella could be a subsitute, as it tastes a bit wholesomer than cows milk Mozzi?

Or maybe look here, they might help you further in your query
