I’m not asking about general shopping - just groceries/ cooking supplies. Mexican, Indian, western, Southeast Asian food. Basically I’m wondering: when other people who like to cook (or are pretending to learn to cook, which is a more accurate description of what I do) visit Hong Kong from Taipei, what do they find in Hong Kong that they can’t find here?
What are the grocery stores with the best selection, the Hong Kong equivalent of City Super or Jason’s? Or is there a Mexican or Southeast Asian specialty-store equivalent to the godsend that Trinity is here for Indian cooking?
I’m especially wondering about ingredients that I simply can’t find in Taipei, although information about bargains is also welcome.
Mind you, Ben & Jerry’s also sounds good! The rat… less so. Ate it once in Tainan, and it was fine, but that was enough. (三杯 mouse at the aboriginal restaurant - Hudlavoos? A long time ago.)
(I tend to come back from yearly trips to Canada with at least one bag full of things like spices, various dried chile peppers, white chocolate chips, corn tortillas, dried black beans… and wow that combination would make one ugly recipe. Either that or a very innovative mole.)
