Mar 9 2021, 6:29 pm

Besides having foods that you wouldn’t typically find at your local Krogers, Asian grocery stores are the best spot to stock up on snacks.

Trust us when we say that you’re going to want a freezer full of potstickers and a pantry filled with crispy and crunchy umami chips.

Here are seven of our favorite Asian grocery stores in Seattle:

Don’t roll your eyes at us, of course we’re going to start with Uwajimaya. With their wide selection and wonderful staff, you’re sure to find everything you need. We love their fish for homemade poke bowls and sashimi, as well as their ready-made food in the food court.

Hung Long Asian Market has everything you need to create the perfect hot pot. Or dim sum. Or fried rice. Whether you’re looking for packaged or fresh products, Hung Long has both.

More of a Thai supermarket than Chinese, Japanese, or Korean, Mekong Rainier is definitely more authentic than the large chains. We suggest this spot if you know what you need.

Location: 3400 Rainier Avenue S, Seattle

Asian Family Market

It’s in the name, Asian Family Market. This spot has everything you may need and more. This spot is one of a chain, so expect to see brand names on shelves.

Location: 13200 Aurora Avenue N, Seattle

Viet Wah is cheaper than Uwajimaya, minus the great selection. If you’re in the neighborhood, however, this is a great spot to check out. This chain does have an herbal pharmacy, live seafood tank, as well as a kitchenware section.

Location: 1032 S Jackson Street, Seattle
Phone: 206-329-1399

The selection of fresh vegetables and fruit at Hau Hau Market is both impressive and affordable. While we admit Hau Hau Market can be a bit of a culture shock to some, it’s definitely an Asian market.
