No need to limit the responses to a specific region. What have been your favorite supermarkets in your travels, or where do you (should the need be) commute out of the way to when at home?
Every time I think about this question, 6 places come to mind:
-Akafudado/Peacock/somewhere in Tokyo or Chiba that I don't necessarily know the name of
-Geant in Manama (which is more of a Carrefour/Walmart but they had a rad dessert section)
-Another place I don't know the name of in Yenibosna, Istanbul (it was tucked away in a shopping center)
-Emporium in Bangkok
More nameless places in Brussels (for their dessert and prepared foods selections)
I like a lot of Trader Joe's products too, but it's never a pleasant shopping experience. Could be the narrow aisles or the fact that I'm in New York that keeps 'em off the list, for now.
What's on your list?
