Asien shop: Asian food products
This is a very large Asian grocery store with products from all Asian countries. Although I didn't see alot of Indonesian items. They even get fresh Asian produce once a week, lemon grass, galangal, durian fruit, thai chilies, bean sprouts (really hard to get here), and more.
What to buy: Fresh asian produce, asian noodles, indian spice pastes, spices, asian beer/wines, asian doups, and more!
What to pay: Prices in euro: 1.3 for 100 g of whole cumin, 1.55 for 400 grams on bahn pho noodles, 1.20 for 240 g Mie noodles. One of the more reasonable asian stores we have found.
Bread and sweet rolls
This shop/bakery is something else:
it is in a tiny little house in the Froschgasse, actually it is just one room with a very low ceiling and a maximum of well, let's say 5 customers fit inside!
The shop is called: "Backwaren vom Vortag", which means "Bakery products from the previous day". So, here you can buy bread and pastries that are merely one day old, but you only pay half price!
This is such a great idea and believe me, the stuff is good!!!!
Just by chance we walked by this store and saw the owner varnishing a violin - a brand new violin, which he himself had built! This was quite fascinating, because you don't see this kind of handicraft very often anymore! He didn't mind our taking his picture, but he would not pose, since he had serious business to do!
In his shop you can purchase new and old violins, but can also have your own violin repaired!
Have a look at his website, if you are interested!
