The fridges and freezers at this place are brimming with pretty much every dumpling you can think of, from the much loved Char Siu roast pork buns through to Japanese Daifuku - sweet gelatinous rice cakes with a sweet filling.
If you're a great advocate of animal rights, be sure to avoid the fresh seafood counter - among the vibrant red slabs of sashimi grade tuna are fish, crabs and eels swimming around in tanks hoping to be liberated rather than eaten. Not a nice sight.
Moving on, this place offers aisles upon aisles of noodles, drinks, spices, rices, and sauces and sells kilo bags of herbs and dried birds eye chillies for just over a pound.
I picked up a few exotic treats and a bamboo steamer with the total tallying up to just over £20.
Here are a few of the items I hoarded while I was there. I think I'm worse with impulse buying food than I am with anything else.
|Malaysian Steamed Buns with Coconut Filling|
|Japanese Steamed Azuki Bean Bun (sweet)|
|Japanese Sesame Mochi (gelatinous rice cakes with sweet bean filling)|
|Chinese Char Siu Bao (Roast Pork Buns) and Har Gow (Prawn Dumplings)|
