I stumbled upon this Asian supermarket recently and find it to be one of the best in Cape Town. Now, whenever I have to head ‘North’ I take a little detour to pick up a few snacks and ingredients.
It has a very big range of sauces, spices, pastes, oils, and all manner of chinese ingredients. There is a fresh section which includes Asian greens and duck eggs.
The prices are fantastic!
It’s a retailer and wholesaler and you can buy bulk packs of noodles and dried mushrooms.
There are about 12 freezers packed with frozen duck, pork, dim sum and all the typical pastry things.
You can also buy crockery and Chinese bamboo steamers in all sizes as well as a few electronic kitchen gadgets.
My latest food addiction is wasabi peas, and this is where I buy mine. Light and crunchy with an intense wasabi zing that induces sneezing and sends a shiver through my nostrils. I love it.
