Welcome to the forum. Somehow your title make me think of the film "Desperado"
It could have been worse, it could have reminded you of Nacho Libre

There are many shops where you can get Mexican stuff, ok expensive but still available.

Mexican products that may be hard to find once I get there or that may be too expensive. Any suggestions?
An iron to make tortillas, dryed chillis, hoja de tamal, grounded mole, pasta para chicharrones, frozen tamales, epazote, traditional candies, the list is endless. You better forget Mexican food.

Welcome!

That would cover everything. All mexican products are either hard to find or way too expensive. I have to check a store near my flat that is supposed to have mexican products. Saw it a few weeks ago. If it's still there they might have better prices as El Maiz. I will let you guys know.
here is the webpage of El Maiz and you can find the prices, then decide what you want to bring.

here is my trick, I find exactly what i Rrrrrrrreally need and make a list, then take a bit more than the exact amount of cash and leave the card at home, otherwise my hole money will disappear at once.

Re: A Mexican in Switzerland

I am a fan of Rick Bayless and love El Maiz. I've never been to Mexico but I think my home-made Mexican food is not too shabby. I wouldn't mind an EF where we all bring a Mexican dish to share

I am from the US so I know what the Tar Heels are.

El Maiz in Zürich is the best we have here. It is better to
make your food at home. Otherwise, you would be very
disappointed with the Mexican restaurants.

Anyway. Bienvenidos a Suiza!!

It isn't the same as what I had at family dinners with my ex-bf (he was from Michoacan) nor is it the same as what I had at a family operated Mexican restaurants in Daytona or Waukegan... but it hits the spot if I'm craving and not feeling like cooking. Then again, my cooking is more "Southwestern" (influenced by living in Texas and So-Cal) rather than actually "Mexican" anyhow, so it's been years since I've had some really great Mexican food.


Meanwhile, if I am in the mood to cook (more like, too broke to eat out, which is more often than not), I have found that going to different stores works for making "Mexican" flavors the same as heading to this and that and the other place to put together any other sort of non-Swiss meal. I'd say to explore your area, poke your head in ALL of the ethnic stores near you - you never know what new flavors you may find that will become the new thing you want lots of (For me it's Sindhi Biryani chicken..mmmm!) AND some of the basic ingredients are similar or the same anyhow (quite often you'll find great prices on different peppers and other things that are crazy expensive at the Swiss chains).
