The Asian Supermarket is in a town with an abundant amount of brick buildings. Near the Asian Supermarket, there is a car repair shop located directly in front of the strip mall where the market is. Directly next to the supermarket is an Asian Buffet Market with a similar storefront.
Inside the Asian Supermarket, every shopper will quickly find the food they intend to purchase. Whether it is Thai noodles or Chinese sauces, look up at the directory signs and find it. The store’s organized layout is easy to understand, as each good can be found in its correct isle.
Strawberry Mochi- Ivy
Craving a sweet and chewy dessert? The soft, dumpling-like strawberry mochi is a delicious choice with a strong, sugary aroma. The inside filling squirts sweet and tangy strawberry flavor into your mouth as soon as you take a bite. Anyone who tries this dessert will undoubtedly want to return to the Asian Supermarket for more of these fresh packaged treats.
Litchi Cakes and Pomelo- Sarah
Litchi cakes are one of the best options for someone who loves a crumbly-sticky dessert. There was a crumbly pastry on the outside, concealing a very flavorful sticky-sweet jam in the middle.
If you love grapefruit, it will be very hard to resist buying one of the pomelos. It looked the same as a giant grapefruit, and tasted like one too. The only difference, the flavor was slightly sweeter than a regular grapefruit.
Green Juice Flavored Rice Fruit- Grace
Green juice flavored rice fruit, despite its unusual and vague name, is quite good. It has a light, crunchy, powdered feel to it, and when eating it, it has a slightly salty flavor with a mild, spicy aftertaste.
Meat - Andrey
We all know the basic meats that people consume, but steaks and pork chops are better left for a typical supermarket. Here people come for cow and chicken stomachs, pork feet, all sorts of tails, hearts and livers, a few tongues, pre-fried blood, or even omasum tripe. And if you are like me, it would take you a consultation with google to learn that the latter is a third part of a cow’s stomach lining. Piles of dried squid next to meat and glassy eyes of live or at least whole fish that are about to become dinner, complete the picture.
While a fairly large number of the foods in this market are fresh, the seafood is what stuck out to me the most. There are examples of fish in ice waiting to be purchased by any customer as well as a mini aquarium in this market. Below the ready-to-purchase fish, there is yet another tank containing live crabs and smaller fish to the left. It is not uncommon to see a lobster tank in stores, but to see a wide range of aquatic live is rare and marvelous. As a side purpose, it could make good entertainment for younger children, as to entice them to come with you to the supermarket. Having live fish there serves as proof that the seafood being sold there if fresh.
