Super 88 Allston

Visited the Super 88 Allston and was disappointed. The Dorchester store is much better. The fish section absolutely reeked of rotting fish - perhaps they don't have adequate turnover yet. There were also fewer fresh meat selections. The produce selection was skimpy. Many packages of asian herbs were mysteriously labeled "Selected Vegetable". I can figure out thai basil, coriander etc... but if I'm looking for saw tooth herb, la lot leaves, etc... it would help if someone in the store could answer basic questions. When I inquired at Customer Service and asked employees on the floor they either didn't speak English or had no idea what the herbs were called. Of course you can find all the dried, canned and bottled goods and the new location is more convenient for people travelling from the Western burbs.
