The shop acually extends out of the back into the alleyway where you'll find their selection of fresh vegetables and shellfish in aerated tanks. Not as big as Gerrard street stalwarts like Loong Fung or Loon Moon, nevertheless, there is a nice selection of goods over 3 floors. Some of the restaurants look to be trying to draw in the tourists but Golden Gate is authentically for the local population.
Chinese supermarket with some Thai, Japanese and Korean items plus Chinese vegetables, small fresh fish counter and frozen food section. Friendly service too. Here you can buy favorites such as 'koh kae' peanuts, really nice ramen, fresh miso, whole (living) crabs and lobsters.
This is the place to go for the fresh aromatic herbs (such as Asian basil, red or purple perilla leaves and saw-leaf herb) essential for cooking authentic dishes at home. Exotic south-east Asian fruits can also be found here: rambutans, durian and dragon fruit. Also is the excellent selection of fish and shellfish, condiments (such as fish sauce and fermented prawn paste) and a range of Vietnamese cooking utensils.
For the freshest, sashimi-grade fish, look to West Acton’s Atari-ya, which promises more than 100 types of fish and shellfish. Friendly, knowledgable staff will gladly slice fish into morsels of sashimi for no extra charge. Also available are kitchen essentials, colourful snacks, and thinly sliced meats for shabu-shabu and sukiyaki (Japanese hot pots)
