International supermarkets in Taipei area

They were selling Basil plants . Real basil, not the pointy leaved thai stuff. I mean the genuine basil one finds in the states, at B&Q (like Home Depot) in Changhua a couple months back.I bought 4 little plants and they have taken over my porch. If you want some western basil, and you have somewhere to grow plants. that’s your best bet.

Welcome has just introduced products from UK supermarket Waitrose including bottled water from Prince Charles’ estate and yummy raspberry jam from the Essentials range.

I was wondering if anyone could point out specialised japanese stores/supermarkets in Taipei that carry high end japanese products/foods? Esp. i´m looking for rare japanese whiskies and soy sauces and i dont think i´ve seen them in Matsusei…

Thanks!

The City Supers have plenty of Japanese imports - the prices can be high end, but I’m not sure how high the quality is. The main two I go to are in the basements of the Sogos at Zhongxiao Fuxing MRT Station, and near Zhishan MRT Station.

Breeze Super, in the basement of the Breeze Department Store a few blocks north of Zhongxiao Fuxing MRT Station, would be another good place to look.

Thanks,

yeah i know the basement supermarkets of the department stores… They are fine for normal international goods (and yeah the prices pretty much tie in with the whole department store… nothing cheap there) but if you wantspecialised stuff imo. they are lacking. But i will check out Breeze Center and def. Takashimaya! Cheers.
