Atlanta has a China Town?

6 Jan

It’s more like a Chinese, Japanese, and Korean town all together.

Yesterday, our friend took us on a trip to visit several asian markets. It turned out to be an all day event! We were happy to have found a new, super cheap supermarket.

Our first stop was a Japanese market called Tomato; located in Norcross, GA.

Luis laughed at me the whole time because I kept doing my happy dance. I couldn’t help it though… It’s such a proud moment looking at extraordinary foods and packages and know what it is because you have had it before and even more amazing that I have eaten it in Japan.

It brought back memories and an urge to travel.

The fruity drinks, the hot coffee in a can, the pickled ginger and plums, and lastly, the funny cartoons on everything.

Memories, memories, memories.. take me back!

Next was the Super H Mart located near the Doraville station.

This place had a huge selection of everything Asian, Spanish, and Indian. Luis and I are in love… we are adopting it as our new supermarket.

Wanna know the real secret why we love it? It’s way less expensive then Publix and you can’t beat the variety!

Another awesome reason why we love this supermarket is for their food court.

We became members as soon as we checked out and now I will be waiting patiently by the mailbox for specials so I can return again soon.

When we left H Mart is was raining so we decided on visiting only one more asian market and I am sure our pocket was happy on that decision too.  I believe there are about two or three more that we missed and will have to visit at a later time. We also saw a latino market that maybe one day in the future we could take a peak at.

This last shopping center on our trek was simply called China Town, located in Chamblee, GA.

It had a supermarket, hot pot, buffet, and many other Chinese retail stores.

And, it’s where I found my beloved chocolate filled Koalas… I am bitting their heads off as we speak. YUM!

Wondering our damage?

We bought some latin things too.. Jarritos Pina Soda and some white sauce to make jalapeno steak  = )

Ahh, nothing like a vase full of snack size yumminess.
