Al Premium Supermarket

New supermarket at Birchmount and Eglinton East. Finally saw that they were open after months of seeing a sign that a new oriental market would be opening up. I went in and it looks similar to a T&T supermarket set up, plus a few more things like Indian and Middle Eastern products. In the back they've got 2 butcher sections, one for halal and the other just regular. Their fish section is totally enclosed in it's own chilled room. Finally, their food court seems pretty impressive, they have both chinese and Indian food in there own areas, with large open windows behind them where you can see cooks making the food fresh. I didn't buy any of the ready made food, but the food looked good. Chinese food was similar to what you would find at T&T food courts, and Indian food like butter chicken, kabobs, tandoori and the like. Also noticed they also have a Shawarma bar, Japanese sushi bar and a Coffee / Bubble Tea bar. Only thing missing was a Banh Mi bar :-( . Thought at first they might have North American food products, but it looks like it's geared towards asian and south asian tastes. Prices seem on par with what you would see at T&T markets as well.
