This easily missed Filipino market deli is mix of fast food, slow food and soul food. Arko is a good place to get our cooking supplies, rice and other things need in the kitchen and house. It's a great grocery store to fulfill all your Filipino food needs, fresh fish needs, and prepared dinner needs. VISIT SITE
Garni is the best Armenian butcher in town. I've gotten steaks, chicken and pork from here. The pre-marinades are always on point. When steak isn't cut they'll chop it to whatever thickness you'd like. They offer helpful tips on preparing food. Extremely good quality meat at bargain prices! It's a no frills meat market. No fancy stuff here. Just good meat, good service, friendly staff.
Great Korean grocery store, large with the fresh seafood and great prices on produce. Not only do they have Korean items that don't make appearances at your local Ralph's or Trader Joe's (like kimchee, Korean snacks, and packaged to go Korean food), their fruits and vegetables are the freshest and cheapest that I've seen. The butcher/fish area is really good as well. VISIT SITE
Plenty of produces, noodles, meats, snacks, kimchi, wine, and dont forget the rice cakes!! You should make a trip for the Kimchi, seafood and 400 different chili and bean pastes and fill the aisles. The variety of Kimchi is astounding!! Their food court has some good options. VISIT SITE
This is a great little spice importing business run by a Sri Lankan* family who have been importing spices to the Americas and Europe for generations. Their cinnamon is top drawer, flavorful, gorgeous and direct from Sri Lanka. They have beautiful selections of bulk pickling spices, allspice, cloves, chilis, pumpkin seeds, cumin, coriander, various peppers. VISIT SITE
This grocery store has everything you need if you are looking to make a Thai dish. They even have items imported from Thailand including kitchen utensils. All vegetarians should be shopping here! The extensive mock meat section far surpasses your Whole Foods wet dream. It's Taiwanese imports, but it the same stuff your eating at most Thai or Chinese vegetarian restaurants. Plus their selection of aromatic herbs is outstanding: Lemongrass, Purple Basil, Kaffir Lime, Jalapenos... and so on.
Good variety of fresh produce, but somewhat lacking in quantity. They also have a wide variety of dried goods, canned goods, jars of sauces,rice noodles (huge variety of noodles), cold beverages, frozen goods/meats and cooking/serving implements. This market is affordable and very well stocked. Things like lemongrass, ginger, garlic, galang, shallots, basil, oyster mushrooms, cilantro, limes, coconut milk (in the paper carton type box that rice milk is often packaged in), etc., are all very fresh and make for some really great soups.
LAX-C is basically Thai Costco, a huge warehouse or super supermarket of asian foods. LAX-C carries a large number of Asian products, many are imported Thai products. They also carry fresh products as well as frozen products. You'll find all the things you'll need at an Asian market and much more. The place itself is rather messy and you'll find many items that are dusty. There's plenty of dry and refrigerated ingredients. The fresh seafood and produce sections were pretty small.
They have plenty of imports from various regions mostly specializing in Sri Lankan, Indian and other Asian foods. Other than vegetables this place has your standard herbs and spices that adhere to Sri Lanka and India food. They also have British products, including British tea. They even have Australian Vegemite. It is a nice, clean, well stocked store and the owners are friendly.
A decent place for Sri Lankan and Kerala food items. It is a small grocery store with speciality items form Sri Lanka and India. They have a wide variety of dry fish all imported from Sri Lanka. Also they have reputed food like MD brand jams and sambo.
