About us

Rockey Ren and Qing Li opened the first Asia Food Market location in the Rochester area in , the largest market of its kind outside of New York City, a supermarket for Asian groceries. After ten years of success, a 25, square foot location followed in Syracuse in March , featuring authentic Hong Kong style dim sum and prepared meats made on-site by trained chefs. September saw the biggest expansion yet with a 60, square foot location in the Buffalo area. We take pride in providing the widest, freshest variety of Asian groceries in upstate New York.

    Besides having foods that you wouldn&#;t typically find at your local Krogers, Asian grocery stores are the best spot to stock up on snacks.

    Trust us when we say that you&#;re going to want a freezer full of potstickers and a pantry filled with crispy and crunchy umami chips.

    Here are seven of our favorite Asian grocery stores in Seattle:

    Uwajimaya

    Don&#;t roll your eyes at us, of course we&#;re going to start with Uwajimaya. With their wide selection and wonderful staff, you&#;re sure to find everything you need. We love their fish for homemade poke bowls and sashimi, as well as their ready-made food in the food court.

    Location: 5th Avenue South, Seattle
    Phone:

    Hung Long Asian Market

    Hung Long Asian Market has everything you need to create the perfect hot pot. Or dim sum. Or fried rice. Whether you&#;re looking for packaged or fresh products, Hung Long has both.

    Location:  15th Avenue SW, Seattle

    Mekong Rainier

    More of a Thai supermarket than Chinese, Japanese, or Korean, Mekong Rainier is definitely more authentic than the large chains. We suggest this spot if you know what you need.

    Location: Rainier Avenue S, Seattle

    Asian Family Market

    It&#;s in the name, Asian Family Market. This spot has everything you may need and more. This spot is one of a chain, so expect to see brand names on shelves.

    Location:  Aurora Avenue N, Seattle
    Phone:

    H Mart

    For the love of all things Korean, go to H Mart. From wonderful ready-made meals to all the snacks you could imagine, this chain has it all.

    Location:  2nd Avenue, Seattle
    Phone: 

    Viet Wah

    Viet Wah is cheaper than Uwajimaya, minus the great selection. If you&#;re in the neighborhood, however, this is a great spot to check out. This chain does have an herbal pharmacy, live seafood tank, as well as a kitchenware section.

    Location:  S Jackson Street, Seattle
    Phone: 

    Hau Hau Market

    The selection of fresh vegetables and fruit at Hau Hau Market is both impressive and affordable. While we admit Hau Hau Market can be a bit of a culture shock to some, it&#;s definitely an Asian market.

    The complete guide to every Asian grocery store in the Portland area

    Samantha Bakall | The Oregonian/OregonLive

    By Samantha Bakall | The Oregonian/OregonLive

    You can find almost anything in the Portland area, if you know where to look.

    With 45 (and counting) Asian grocery stores across the Portland metro area, finding ingredients for cooking nearly every cuisine on the continent has never been easier. We spent two days exploring — from Vancouver to Southeast Portland and Gresham to Hillsboro — to visit all 45 stores and discover what ingredients were stocked in their aisles. For each store, we've provided a basic outline of available goods, as well as a summary of the cuisine each is best for. 

    For the purposes of this guide, condiments refer to sauces and seasonings like soy, fermented pastes, chile sauces and oils. "Dry goods" is our encompassing label for grains and legumes (including dals). And starches refer to various flours (tapioca, rice and black gram, for example) and ground legumes and grains.

    The Great Big Guide to Philly’s Essential Asian Grocery Stores and Markets

    Spicy Thai curry paste, warming masala, or Burmese sweet curry? Thanks to Philadelphia’s diverse Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities, you can make dishes with all three. Go beyond the international aisle at ACME and you’ll find much more variety, reasonable prices, and maybe even inspiration from fellow shoppers’ carts.

    Find expansive seafood options and specialty cuts at the butcher shop — and accompanying spices — to make braised tripe dim sum-style or congee with pork blood. While American consumers have started to embrace meat alternatives in the last two decades, these products have long been staples in AAPI cuisines, and Asian markets carry mind-blowing varieties including silky soft-to-firm tofu, canned fried gluten, and alternative meats shaped like their animal counterparts. Expand your culinary skills and palate with the naturally gluten-free rice, cassava, and gram flours, to name a few. These stores tend to also carry foods popular in other immigrant cuisines such as frozen yuca, tamales, and Goya products. Make a day of it and get to know nearby Asian-owned shops and restaurants — larger grocery stores are often anchor tenants in immigrant business districts. This gives you a great excuse to try popular restaurants in the same shopping plaza — or if you’re lucky, a Cantonese barbecue stall inside the grocery store.


    Sonia Parikh

    International Foods & Spices

    Walnut Street, West Philly

    Sonia Parikh, sister of Mina’s World co-owner Sonam Parikh, goes here for the mother spices of every Indian dish — cumin, bay leaves, cinnamon bark, cardamom, cloves, turmeric, mustard seeds, fennel, and chile peppers — as well as dry boxed masalas, DIY Indian dessert-making kits, and “crunchy favorites like tomato chile KurKure or Haldiram’s Khatta Meetha mix, which translates to ‘sweet n’ salty chips’!” The samosas you love from Mina’s World come from this South Asian specialty grocery store, which also carries many Middle Eastern products. Hazami Sayed, founder and former executive director of Al-Bustan Seeds Of Culture, buys Lebanese olive oil and olives here — “look for the El Koura brand,” she says. Home cooks can marinate their olives like Sayed: “Drain the olives and put in a bowl under running water for an hour or so, especially black olives which are more salty, then marinate in a glass jar with half olive and half canola oil, add the juice of one lemon, and a few cut-up pieces of lemon, and a bit of fresh oregano or thyme.”


    Aslam Market

    S. Seventh Street, South Philly

    Over 20 years ago, this small grocery store started off selling Indian and American groceries but slowly expanded their offerings to serve the Southeast Asian and Central American immigrant communities in South Philly. Aslam Market is a treasure trove of staples such as mixes to make momo, or Nepalese dumplings, Indian sweets, Burmese sweet curry, and Indonesian instant noodles. Fun fact: Gyro cart vendors go to Aslam to get their special spice blends.


    Oregon Market

    W. Oregon Avenue, East Oregon

    Laos In The House founder Catzie Vilayphonh goes to this market to stock her pantry with Lao/Thai ingredients such as Pantai fermented fish sauce and shrimp paste, Por Kwan chile pastes and curry gravy, Mama Noodles in the iconic silver wrapping, and T.O. Nam cured sausages and pork rinds, as well as multiple brands of padaek, or unrefined fish sauce. This market also carries produce that may be hard to find elsewhere, such as makrut lime leaves, Piper betel, (a heart-shaped leaf used for wrapping handheld foods such as Miang kham), Thai eggplants, and tropical fruits including durian, jackfruit, and green papaya. Vilayphonh also visits Oregon Market to purchase “indoor-outdoor plastic rugs and the mortar pestle we use for making papaya salad and other sauces.”


    Shinjoo Cho

    Mt Laurel Wine & Spirits

    Church Road, Mount Laurel Township, New Jersey

    No ordinary liquor store, this hidden gem has possibly the biggest Korean alcohol selection on the East Coast. The shop carries “several brands of soju and makgeolli, as well as the more celebrated varieties like beopju and baekseju,” raves Shinjoo Cho, chair of the Statue of Peace Plaza Committee, who says she was emotionally stricken the first time she encountered such bounty. “They’re mostly rice-based wine,” she explains. “Some Korean meals, especially barbecue, just aren’t the same without some of these drinks and I don’t have to travel far now.” There is also quite a selection of sake.


    1st Oriental Supermarket

    S. Sixth Street, Washington Avenue Markets

    This is the place for tropical fruits like lychee, dragon fruit, coconuts, and Vietnamese soursop — look for festive soursop candy, wrapped in cellophane during Tet. 1st Oriental has an expansive butcher and seafood section with harder to find cuts and offal including pork blood, bone-in pork belly, duck heads, spareribs for stew, pigs’ feet, beef tripe, and pinapaitan, or beef bile, a staple of Philippine cooking. Get all the ingredients to make canh chua ca, the Vietnamese sweet-and-sour catfish soup with pineapple, tamarind, palm sugar, taro stem, okra, bean sprouts, tomato, and fish sauce. If you’re feeling peckish while you shop, there is a convenient Cantonese barbecue takeout spot housed within the market, with racks of glistening roast ducks, salted chicken, and a handsome slab of roast pork with thick fried skin — cooked in its own fat and juices, of course — that shatters satisfyingly when you crunch.


    Hung Vuong Supermarket

    Washington Avenue, Washington Avenue Markets

    Hung Vuong is Poi Dog chef-owner Kiki Aranita’s go-to market, and this Southeast Asian food wonderland has an impressive seafood selection with colorful crabs, different varieties of head-on shrimp and prawns, and crawfish (for all your Viet-Cajun cuisine needs). There are also staples like Three Ladies rice paper for summer rolls, dried shrimps and fried shallots, pho spices and bullions, fruit-based Vietnamese jerky for snacking and salad-topping, curry pastes, and crucial cooking tools. There is also a really lovely section of ready-made Vietnamese meals, Vietnamese pork rolls, sweet or savory sticky rice tightly wrapped in banana leaves, fresh and properly oily rice rolls, and baked goods from local purveyors. Eat and then plant like a chef: Aranita never leaves Hung Vuong without egg tofu and taro leaves. “I’ve long had a problem finding fresh taro leaves on the mainland,” she says. “This year I got a bunch of taro (the giant roots) in Hung Vuong’s produce aisle and planted those in my backyard.” The Asian American Journalists Association Philadelphia’s Juliana Reyes goes to Hung Vuong for Philippine staples like banana leaves for bibingka and cooking fish, longganisa, and siopao, or pork buns, in the freezer section.

    Heng Fa Food Market

    N. 10th Street, Chinatown

    This tiny market packs in as much as possible with two floors and an abundance of fresh fruits and vegetables that spill out onto the sidewalk, enticing passersby. Here you will find a colorful selection of staple Chinese vegetables including sweet snow pea leaves, pretty and slender Chinese eggplants, and irresistible garlic chives with delicate buds at the tips. You’ll get all the necessary cuts — including pork belly and chicken feet — at the butcher and seafood department, though they may run out of more popular items by late afternoon. The downstairs is dedicated to packaged foods, teas, dried and canned goods, and snacks and candies. Asian Fresh Food Market, down the street in the footprint of the gone-but-not-forgotten Imperial Inn, which was once considered to be the oldest restaurant in Chinatown, also offers a lot in a small space.

    Hung Vuong Food Market

    Frankford Avenue #22, Mayfair/Tacony, inside the Mayfair Shopping Center

    Much larger than its Philadelphia Chinatown counterpart, Heng Fa, and with much more parking, this sibling to the Hung Vuong in South Philly is part of a growing regional empire and a welcome addition for Mayfair/Tacony’s growing Fujianese and Vietnamese community, as well as its non-Asian residents. Here you will find all the bok choy, Shanghai tips, bitter melon, and assorted cabbages for easy stir fries; colorful tropical fruits; and necessary spices and herbs including goji berries, snow fungus, lotus seeds, long pepper (popular in Indian and Chinese cuisine), and white cardamom pods. The seafood selection is gorgeous; the mollusks alone — Oysters! Conches! Scallops! Snails! So many sizes of clams! — is breathtaking. “They have really awesome produce and they also clean fresh fish for you. The market is a great uniter for the diverse communities in Northeast Philadelphia,” says Alex Balloon, the executive director of the Tacony Community Development Corporation.



    Farmer’s Best

    Adams Avenue, Lawncrest, inside the Rising Sun Plaza Shopping Center

    While South Philly is recognized as a Southeast Asian hub, “Northeast Philadelphia was (and still is) home to many Southeast Asian refugees and immigrants who settled in the area in the s,” explains Jingyao Yu, senior editorial associate at Resolve Philly. “Farmer’s Best Supermarket (formerly Hong Kong Supermarket) was one of the first large grocery stores to serve Southeast Asian communities in the neighborhood.” Come here for Chinese and Vietnamese essentials, including an expansive — live and on ice — seafood counter; pound bags of rice, kitchen supplies, and frozen dumplings; plus baked goods and sweets from local and regional bakeries. (Fun fact: Some of the shops in Chinatown have their flagship stores, where the baking happens, in the Northeast.) The prices are hard to beat, but pay close attention to the discount produce table — there, you will feast like royalty. These days, says Yu, who sits on the steering committee of the Asian Mosaic Fund, “the area is now seeing an influx of Fujianese Chinese residents, many of whom are coming from the New York area, establishing homes and new businesses, contributing to the ever-changing, vibrant landscape of Northeast Philly.” Make sure to visit the Cantonese barbecue station, which offers your pick of succulent meats, including whole roasted pig, Peking duck, and lovely Cantonese-style orange-hued squid.


    Village Market Produce Truck

    Between Walnut and Sansom on South 44th Street, West Philly

    Located between Walnut and Sansom on 44th Street across from Supremo Food Market, this is an awesome produce truck that overflows with two produce stands. “This place has the freshest veggies,” declares Mina’s World’s Sonia Parikh, who comes here to stock the People’s Fridge with produce. “Malik, the person who runs this produce truck, curates each fruit and veggie very carefully by asking customers what they’d like to see more or less of.”


    Pinoy Groseri

    Bustleton Ave, Rhawnhurst

    As Philadelphians rejoice over the hotly anticipated Jollibee, a chain as ubiquitous as McDonald’s in the Philippines that’s opening on Bustleton and Cottman avenues, get to know the Filipino pantry by shopping at Pinoy Groseri. Kusina Philly’s Cesar Gonzales, who also shops at the Washington Avenue markets in South Philly, stocks his kitchen with UFC banana ketchup, Datu Puti vinegar and soy sauce, Mama Sita’s tamarind soup powder, and Magnolia ice cream. Get all the fixings for a halo-halo party here. There are so many ube and pandan options, one could cry. Bonus: Pinoy Groseri ships through their website.


    H Mart

    Old York Rd, Elkins Park, inside the More Shopping Center
    North Front Street, Olney
    Terminal Square, Upper Darby

    H Mart, the North American Korean grocery giant, is no ordinary Asian market. It’s not even a superstore — it’s an experience. In addition to the expansive market, H Marts are linked with fabulous food courts and smaller, locally owned shops that sell Korean skincare and beauty products, appliances, and home goods. Regardless of location — there are three in Philly — you can count on H Mart to knock your socks off with sheer quantity and variety of Asian foods and produce, including several varieties of dragon fruit, eggplants of all shapes and sizes, all kinds of kimchi and fish cakes, at least one aisle dedicated to frozen dumplings, and an extravagant seafood counter with octopus, catfish, squid, and more.

    In addition to Korean everything, H Mart also carries many items for Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Indonesian, Filipino, and Central American cuisine. The refrigerated banchan selection is unparalleled — soy-braised soybeans, lotus root, radish kimchi, and spicy fish cake, to name a few — and you can also get fresh sushi for a night in. Get all the fixings for hot pot at home, like thinly sliced rib-eye and pork belly, fish balls with popping roe, chewy rice cake rounds, and Little Sheep Hot Pot Soup Base with peanut dipping sauce and chile crisp. Stock your pantry with an unbearably delicious selection of milk tea and milky coffee powders, instant noodles (you can’t go wrong with Shin Ramyun, Chapagetti noodle, and the camping-friendly Haidilao self-heating hot pot), and Haitai-brand honey-butter chips.

    Upstairs at the Upper Darby location, you can have a full-fledged proper Korean meal with sizzling kimchi jjigae and dolsot bibimbap, or go light with some sushi or bubble tea. Probably best to take some Korean fried chicken home. While you wait for your food court order, peruse the small shops, including a higher-end appliance store and a functional and cute kitchen tools and cookware shop. This location also carries many Ecuadorian products.

    The new H Mart on Front Street in Olney includes a cool kitchen section with a full range of Zojirushi rice cookers, pricey kimchi refrigerators, teapots and dishware, and French glass cookware. Shoppers can stock up on Korean liquors and baked goods from the attached Paris Baguette.

    The original Elkins Park location, which Japanese Breakfast’s Michelle Zauner brought to national fame with her memoir Crying in H Mart, also has an excellent upstairs food court, with Korean fried chicken, Japanese katsu and sushi, steamed buns and dumplings, and of course, full-on Korean feasts with no shortage of banchan and sizzling clay pots. Bonus: H Mart delivers through Instacart.

    Asian specialty food market coming to Thompson Square

    News alert

    Foodies in the Ardmore area will soon have a new location to buy specialty and exotic ingredients. Mekong Garden Market is coming to Thompson Square, and the specialty food market will carry many of the ingredients needed to create authentic Asian cuisine.

    Owner Thor Seng described some of the foods he will keep in stock.

    “I’ll have all organic produce and exotic fruits from Southeast Asia along with lots of different sauces, condiments and rice. I’ll also have some fresh pressed juice made from the fruits and roots I’ll have for sale. The juice is really good for your health and helps to build up your immune system.”

    Seng said he decided to open the market after moving to the area from California.

    “In California everything is too expensive and way too crowded,” he said. “It’s so much more peaceful and laid back here, and I really enjoy the area.”

    Mekong Garden Market will be located in the northeast area of Thompson Square in the former location of First Down Phil’s. The location is currently being expanded to include the space next door. Seng hopes to be open for business in about two months.

    Haul from my local Asian Stores

    It has been a while since my last blog post. My apologies&#;home/work life has gotten busy. I never mentioned this on the blog before, but in addition to my job at the university, since Fall I took over as Market Manager at the East Falls Farmers&#; Market (EFFM). Out of convenience and necessity, this Saturday market under the Twin Bridges in downtown East Falls has gradually become the source for most of our food at home. Today I&#;d like to introduce you to our farmers and maybe give you some ideas of how you can use local farmers&#; market produce to make some great Asian-influenced meals at home.

    Since the lock down, the East Falls Farmers&#; Market ( Ridge Ave) has become my primary source for fresh produce, fruit, meats, yogurt, cheese, wine, beer, etc. My wife and I still cook primarily Thai and East Asia inspired foods on a daily basis, but we have largely adapted to what is available at the market. That does generally mean fresher and more flavorful ingredients compared to what we can get from any nearby mainstream big-box grocery stores, though we have access to fewer specialty Asian items. That said, the products are local and in season, harvested with care and even produced with environmental and ethical considerations. It feels good to be able to support our local talented and hardworking farmers and food vendors while (finally) learning how to cook more according to what is in season for our region.

    In March the EFFM took quick precautions to move vendors to online pre-order and pickup models, and we implemented safe social distancing measures. Because of those steps, we were able to stay open every weekend, even during those dark and challenging days early on in the lock down. Now vendors are back to day-of sales, though distancing precautions remain. The market has grown substantially this year, both in terms of farmers and food vendors, and also in terms of a stronger customer base. In short, the market is doing well, and frequent new offerings along with open air safe distancing make it an increasingly desirable place to shop for locals. This has got to be one of the few positive outcomes of an otherwise incredibly distressing time.

    Since I&#;m down at the market every Saturday (year-round!) helping to get vendors situated and otherwise ensure the market runs smoothly, I&#;ve made Saturday my main food shopping day. Occasionally I supplement my farmers&#; market purchases with a visit to relatively nearby favorite Asian markets like Seng Hong (a great Southeast Asia-focused market in N Philly) or the H-Mart in Elkins Park for any necessary specialized Asian ingredients. I do miss visits to the city&#;s many small corner stores (especially South Philly&#;s great Southeast Asian stores). As things begin to open up, I look forward to continued explorations of our city&#;s many markets.

    I hope you take advantage of your local farmers&#; market offerings (if you are lucky enough to have one). You are welcome to come visit ours too! The East Falls Farmers&#; Market ( Ridge Ave) is open every Saturday, 10am-2pm. In Mid-late December we expect to again shift to a 2-hour market, 11am-1pm until it starts getting warm again, i.e. May. Hope to see you there!


    Some examples of the farmers&#; market products in our mealsunder quarantine


    Dtam dtaeng ตําแตง(&#;bashed cucumber&#; salad)

    Dtam dtaeng is a funky and sour salad very similar to som tam (green papaya salad). For this we used McCann&#;s Kirby cucumbers, tomatoes and chicken eggs, together with Everwild&#;s fresh garlic, Thai chiles and Mesclun salad mix. We ate it together with some homemade Thai herbal sausage and smoked jerk chicken wings from Side of the Road in East Falls.


    Guilin mifen 桂林米粉with ground beef and maitake mushrooms

    Half of the ingredients for this came out of the pantry (dried rice noodles, pickled long beans, homemade airfried soy nuts, and a Sichuanese crispy chile in oil (川南油辣子), some braised meat stock came out of the freezer. Farmers&#; market ingredients included ground beef made into meat balls from Brophy&#;s Spring Hollow Farm, and maitake mushrooms and cilantro from McCanns.


    Stir-fried kabocha squash with pork belly and Thai basil ฟักทองผัดหมูสามชั้น (with a side of fried kale)

    This Thai-style weekday meal was prepared almost entirely (except salt, garlic, and fish sauce) from EFFM ingredients: Kabocha squash, kale, and long hots from McCann&#;s, eggs and pork belly from Spring Hollow Farm and Thai basil from Susan Schnee’s herbs (Susan was a vendor in ).


    Fried pom pom (aka lion&#;s mane) mushrooms

    Sometimes there are some more unusual mushrooms at the market! Pom pom mushrooms fry wonderfully in some oil with salt and pepper. The result is also like a scallop or something. Really delicious and great as a side to anything.


    Isaan-style chicken stew with oyster mushrooms and dill อ่อมไก่ aum gai

    This is a great dish that freezes well for nice fall weekday meals. Soup chicken (layer chicken) from Spring Hollow Farm, oyster mushrooms, chiles, and dill from McCann&#;s. Lemongrass and galangal came out of the freezer for this one. Kaffir lime leaves came from our tree!


    Stir-fried Asian cauliflower with pork belly

    This year Everwild Farm had long-stemmed cauliflower, just like the kinds you can get at Philly Asian markets! Stirfried with Nathan&#;s pork belly.


    Grilled pork chops with Thai-style nam jim sauce, and grilled eggplant with ground pork, along with grilled corn, long hots, and zucchinis with flowers

    This one was also nearly entirely EFFM materials, and was a collaboration with Alex, a chef who&#;s quarantining in the neighborhood. Alex grilled the pork chops (and decorated them with several edible flowers from his garden) and made the nam jim sauce, and we grilled some Japanese eggplants and corn and made the eggplant ground pork dish. Meats were from Spring Hollow Farms, corn and eggs were from McCann&#;s, and peppers, Japanese eggplants, and zucchinis from Everwild Farm.
