Most common question I get is probably where do I buy all my Asian products? Well I used to go to Dun Yong a lot at Zeedijk (near central station), but like 4 months ago or so I was so excited to hear that an Asian Supermarket called 'HONG KONG SUPERSTORE' opened it's door few blocks down the road in the Kinkerstraat 298.
Another thing I love is that this shop is always open till 18:30, so you can go there relaxed straight from work. The people who work here are super kind and always very helpful, really!! Ask them anything and they have the answer (well.. foodrelated questions eh?!)
Check out the pictures I made! Although I love to cook I can be lazy sometimes too! So for a quick Thai curry I buy my organic red curry paste HERE! No chemicals, No artificial colouring.. LOVE IT!
Another thing I love is the glutenfree soysauce, emping, banana chips (my addiction), coconutoil, rice noodles.. really just everything! I'm an addict when it comes to using Limeleaves in just about any dish! You can't get them in normal western supermarkets but HERE you can buy a whole package (from the freezer) for just 2 or 3 euro! Great thing about those limeleaves is that you can easily keep them in your freezer for months!
Funny thing about this shop is that they also sell things like hair extensions .. I know right?! like What The F#ck.?! haha..
So if you're interested in buying some REAL Asian products try this shop! Maybe we'll run in each other ;)
