Japanese Groceries in Zürich

While I eat at work way to often, I still like to do japanese cooking when I have the time. One of the challenges is to find the various ingredients. Thankfully, there is a very helpful page by Maki about asian shops in Zürich.

Nishi’s Japan Shop
This is the only pure japanese shop I know, they have a wide variety of products, including rare things like bottles of ramune. They also sell non-food products, including beautiful iron tea pots. I do not go there often as the shop is quite far from the center (it is close to Irchel), and the people of Yumi Hana are more friendly in my opinion. They close quite early on Saturday (16:00). Schaffhauserstrasse 120, 8006 Zürich044 363 11 63

Yumi Hana
Conveniently situated close to the main train station, this is both a korean restaurant and a grocery store. They have some variety of japanese products and some nice kimchi. While the place is often crowded, it is also nice to eat there. A shame they are closed on Saturday evening (they close at 17:00). Schützengasse 7, 8001 Zürich ☎ 044 211 57 57

Lian Hua
Close to the Wiedikon railway station, this is a chinese shop, but you can find useful ingredients like tōfu, noodles. They have nice rice-cakes and a good selection of vegetables. Schaffhauserstrasse 269, 8057 Zürich ☎ 043 288 95 08

Asia Store
This shop is buried in the west gallery of the main railway station. You can’t reach that gallery from the main underground shopping center, you need to go up (or down) to the tracks and the down again at the height of the Sihlpost. While small, the shop has some basic goods: tōfu, fresh vegetables and the cheapest bottled green tea of the railway station. They also have some umeshu are open late during the week and open on Sunday. Halle Sihlquai, Hauptbahnhof Konradstrasse 1 8005 Zürich ☎ 044 211 44 34

New Asia Market
I have not yet gone there.
Confiserie Bäkerei Hiro Takashi
This japanese bakery is in Adliswil, opposition of the chinese restaurant Zen. I’m not particularly fond of Japanese cakes, but they have nice Melon Pan. Im Sihlhof 10, 8134 Adliswil ☎ 044 709 22 44
