Is this Brisbane's best Asian grocery store?
There are many Asian grocery stores in Brisbane but Burlington could well be the best. While on the surface it is a Chinese supermarket, this grocery store also covers lots of other Asian groceries as well.

Located next to the really big fish in Fortitude Valley's Chinatown, this is my first stop when I am tracking some of my favourite Asian ingredients. It is a large with well spaced isles and staff who generally try to be helpful when asked questions in either English or Chinese.

So why would I say that this one is the best in Brisbane? Simply because they have a great selection of fresh, frozen and packaged goods and a wide variety of Asian, not just Chinese groceries. There is also a decent selection of Asian cookware, plates and cutlery as well.

It is also flanked by the Burlington Butcher shop and the Burlington Barbecue. So you can buy both raw and cooked meats for your next Asian cooking adventure.

The final reason that I really this grocery store is that usually I can find what I am looking for here, while other Asian grocery stores won't have it. I have to admit that I am more focused on finding specific Chinese ingredients, but they also have a lot of Korean and Japanese groceries you can't find in the Korean and Japanese stores.
