Asian Groceries Stores in Basel (Asiatische Lebensmittel)

After living in Basel for several years, I have collectively got to know these Asian groceries stores which you can buy namely Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese, Malaysian, Korean, Japanese and Indian cooking ingredients. There seem to be an increasing  number of people who are interested in Asian cooking or an increasing number of Chinese short stay in Basel.

It is located down the alley left of Burger King at Basel SBB. They have a good selection of fresh fish, Asian vegetables, spices, etc.


Other places for a limited selection would be the food department at Globus department store and the supermarket of Manor.

For Japanese or Korean cooking ingredients, I would occasionally go to Zurich or order online from Nishi Japanese Delicacy which is located in Zurich:

Lastly, I would like to mention Expat Blog Switzerland . It is a unique platform all the expatriates’ blogs all over the world. Expatriates’ blogs are indeed a great way to get information about real life in a foreign country.

As the years went by, new features have been added to the website such as a forum, guides, albums, a business directory. Expat blog has now more than 500 000 members and 1.5 million unic visitors per month.

A couple of months ago two features are launched to help expatriates and soon-to-be expatriates in Switzerland: Jobs and Housing.
As a matter of fact, finding a job and an accommodation are essentials to succeed in your expatriation project. Indeed, this is often where the adventure begins.

One of the first reasons of mobility is employment. Looking for a job in Switzerland from your native country is not an easy task: you do not know where to look for job offers or where to apply. With its new international job board, Expat blog gives you access to job offers in Switzerland and everywhere in the world, wherever you are.
