Spaetzle in Vancouver

ktlou Jun 22, 2010 07:17 PM

Does anyone know where I can buy dried spaetzle in Vancouver? I've been searching and can't find anything. Not fussy about the brand (and yes, I know I can make it myself, but there are times when I want it quick and easy). Any hints would be greatly appreciated!

Many thanks.

    I buy my spaetzele at Parthenon. They carry two brands and I prefer the one that looks a bit more rustic (you'll see what I mean when you look at them!).

      A little off topic, but I had the käse spätzle at La Brasserie last week and it was a-ma-zing. Very flavourful and addictive. I wish I'd asked them what kind of cheese they use - my guess would be gorgonzola. Highly recommended.

        Do you have Fred Meyer up there? I'm across the border from you and I buy it there, in the ethnic foods section.

                Saw some at the Kaiserreck deli/sandwich/sausage place on Granville Island (in the "food-court" area of the market).

                  It's so easy and fast to make, if you're interested I'll post a recipe.

                    I think they have this at Killarney Market 49th and Elliott

                        Bosa Foods and a tonne of other European delis carry the Bechtle brand of dried spaetzle and thin egg noodles.
