When cooking a particular cuisine it can be hard to find authentic ingredients. There is a supermarket in the heart of Melbourne that stocks a selection of Asian food that is one of the largest. All their products are carefully selected on the basis of quality, flavour, freshness and value.
The selection of Asian groceries sold at TANG The Asian Food Emporium come from many Asian countries like Malaysia, China, Thailand, Vietnam, Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Japan, the Phillipines and Indonesia. There is a great range of Chinese groceries including many Chinese tea; the Fujian Lake brand have teas in lovely glass presentation jars. Along with rices, soy sauces and Chinese spices you’ll find ham sausage, soup bases, Chinese mapo tofu paste and hot pot paste, steamed buns, glutinous rice balls, water bamboo shoot, lotus slices, water chestnuts, drinks, Chinese medicines and much more.
From Japan you’ll find a fascinating range of drinks, including coffee in cans, iced teas, juices and soft drinks and lots of yummy snacks. There are plenty of cooking sauces to help you achieve that distinctive Japanese flavour in your dishes – soy sauce, cooking rice wine, sushi seasoning, sesame dressing, tonkatsu sauce, terryaki sauce and vinegars. If you’re looking for an easy Japanese meal there are ready made curry mixes, seasoning mixes, instant soup bases and instant noodles. You’ll also find a range of miso pastes (soybean paste) and Japanese noodles. The range of ice creams, chocolates and other sweetie treats is fantastic.
From Korea you’ll find Korean fried dumplings, Korean rice cake, vegetable dumpling legume ravioli and a large range of instant noodles and cup noodles. To give you a taste, some of the flavours are Korean claypot ramyun, beef with vegetable, potato noodle soup, kimchi ramyun and spicy shrimp.
