Judging by the numbers of Asian students prowling the aisles of this excellent supermarket, it is both economical and comprehensive. And while it's not as big or as spacious as Maroubra's Sun Li, there must be nearly everything one could need for Asian cookery in this one spot. Go for the massive variety of instant noodles, cooking sauces, meal bases, rice, super-fresh Asian greens, teas, tofus and frozen goods, including rice paper wrappers, sliced beef and fish balls. While many of the products come from China, there's also a share from Indonesia, Malaysia and Taiwan.
