As much as the mega supermarkets expand their variety of Asian food, they could never compare to specialist supermarkets that offer spices and ingredients from across the South Asian and Middle-Eastern subcontinents. Raja Supermarket is huge and offers just that. This is a one-stop shop for virtually any sort of ingredient you would need for traditional English, Thai, Chinese or Italian cuisine, as well as Indian, Sri Lankan, Pakistani and Arabic.
This little shop stocks everything from pre-packaged ready meals, dried beans and pulses (currently only 50p for a house packed bag on selected items), toiletries and confectionaries! As well as food to make at home, they offer a number of delicious take away treats and were boasting cakes, pizza, pastries and confectionaries; so you can still indulge your sweet tooth. VISIT SITE
