Always when I think of quality Asian Grocery stores in Sydney, a few areas definitely come to mind: Haymarket, Burwood, Ashfield, Chatswood and Marrickville. Generally with these areas you cannot go wrong. It is great to buy traditional Asian sauces and condiments at such establishments instead of at traditional supermarkets.

My favourite Asian grocer would have to be Lucky Thai Groceries at Campbell Street in the city. The abundance of choice when it comes to buying noodles for pad Thai or a laksa dish is just superb, in addition to their fish balls.

Another favourite Asian grocer of mine would have to be Mr Cheng's at the popular and busy King Street in Newtown. Mr Cheng has some great recipes that can be followed, even if you have not had the experience of accidentally putting chilli to your eyes in a Thai cooking class, and although Thai restaurants have extensive competition in this area, this grocer does not restrict his Asian food offerings to just Thai cuisine either - Korean, Indonesian and Malaysian: you name it. Also you will not receive as many packets of food that are not written in English here either.

What do you think? Where do you believe Sydney's best Asian Grocery is located? Looking forward to your discussions on this one.

I like to go to those Asian grocery stores in Flemington.There are 4 close to each other near the railways station. Plenty of Asian stuff and you can compare the price from store to store. The most convenient thing is plenty of parking. Parking in the city and Newtown is a problem

Cabramatta's a bit of a way away from most places - but you can take your child/ren on any Sunday for $2.50 on the Family Funday train ticket. It's almost like you're in Vietnam. Some other Asian food stores too. Have a great meal and then try your own versions at home.

check out Hurstville. There are so many high quality Asian Grocery stores there. It's a great place to go shopping for Asian food!
