Yes. I'd suggest one of the many health food stores (like Müller Reformhaus in Rennweg) or asian supermarkets. Use the search function to find them.

Langstrasse tends to have a number of asian food shops.

There is also a good one under the mainstation (Zurich) down at the far end towards sihlpost office, platforms 53/54. There are stairs downwards under the main platforms.

Otherwise there is a big store (mainly chinese) near to Oerlikon station (you can see it from the furthest platform on otherside of road). Much cheaper than most in town.

Sorry I don't know the names.

New Asia Market on Feldstrasse (Kreis 4, between Hohlstrasse and Stauffacherstrasse, towards the end of tramline 8 (Hardplatz).

Don't know the name, chinese supermarket on Birmensdorferstr., tram 9 (Heuried) or 14 (Triemli), get off at Bahnhof Wiedikon (which is on Birmensdorferstr.) and continue walking towards Schmiede Wiedikon, 100m, on the right.

Asia Store, mentioned by bails, under platform 18 (Landesmuseum side of HB, on the other side of the Sihl river. Trams 4 or 13, stop Sihlquai. Follow the stairs down (to platforms 21-24). It's in the corner next to the kiosk.

Thai shop on the corner of Josefstrasse/Hafnerstr.: from aforementioned tramstop Sihlquai, walk down the street following the railwaytracks away from HB (Zollstrasse), you'll end up right in front of it.

Chinese supermarket on Militärstrasse (between Langstrasse and Kanonengasse). Take bus 31, stop Militärstrasse, it's something like 30m from the stop.

Can you tell I like Asian cuisine?

The shop near Oerlikon Mainstation is called Lianhua. Their stuff are cheaper than anywhere else. And on Saturdays, there is a 15% off all purchases. They have everything you'll need on Soy products!!

Another correction: New Asia Market, Feldstrasse: tram 8, stop Bäckeranlage.

The chinese supermarket on Birmensdorferstrasse also has 15% off on Saturdays (thanks Goodhill for pointing that out, completely forgot).
