Asian Grocery Stores in the ACT

By Z56-2-go - 3 September 2008 34

Just wondering whether you guys here on this forum have any idea where I can get the freshest asian vegetables from as well as other asian food products and fruits.

Thanks for your help once more guys.

What’s Your opinion?

The little old chinese or vietnamese lady in the lawns at Manuka (she has set up her milk crates outside La Scala shoes)! She harassed me with her Bok Choy last weekend but little did she know I have troughs of them growing on my deck (and trying to go to seed).

Mings in Belconnen is great. Some people might suggest AngorWhat (yes, it’s actually called that), but I think the quality is “OK” and the prices ridiculous!

I think you’ll find it’s *actually* called Angkor Wat – after the temple in Cambodia.

I was at Ankor in Belconnon mall today and I was so suprised at how fresh everything was. Made an amazing dinner if I do say so myself.

Southside Farmers market, Sunday morning for daikon. There’s some Japanese fresh produce growers who sell a range of pesticide free veges, good range of fresh root veges at good prices.

Sadly the AngorWhat seemed to have closed down when I was last at Belconnen Mall.

I like the Asian Grocer at the Belconnen Markets. Not so good for fresh veges but has all the spices, sauces and curry pastes that I use. They also serve nice food.

I don’t know Mings but will check it out.

Simply Fresh (I think thats the name – the big fruit shop) in the Canberra Centre has a good range of asian fruit & veg – quality generally good, prices ok. Includes things like durian, thai eggplant, taro, garlic greens.

If you want basics like asian greens and herbs, either of the little asian grocery shops in Dickson have boxes on the floor which are good value and fresh.

Have yet to find really good daikon though… maybe Australia just doesn’t have deep enough soil…

The Fyshwick Fresh Food Market sell some Asian vegetables, I’ve seen Bok Choy and Thai Eggplant for sale (the ones you put into Thai Green Curry) plus others I don’t know much about.

There’s one at Mawson shops next to the video shop, nearly opposite the Mawson club.
Good for fresh veges, herbs etc & all manner of asian ingredients, crap for service though.

^ There is one in Mawson

I find the HUB the best, they are also located in Gungahlin…

Woden is devoid of asian grocers as far as I can tell, but there are a couple of Indian spice shops in Phillip.

The Hub in Gungahlin is a great store. Veggies I think are best on Wednesday and Saturday when they seem to get their fresh food deliveries.

I’ve found that the Vietnamese shop at Homeworld Tuggeranong (near the Sportsman’s Warehouse) has by far the best range of Asian food. They have some great seafood in the freezer and a good range of noodles.

The hub, which is in the hyperdome/gunners works for me..
(ok, the only stuff i buy from there is the american lollies/soft drink, but yeah..)
