Asian Markets in Metro Detroit Area

jjspw | Sep 17, 2010 12:49 AM

The E.Mart thread inspired this one. What are the best (or your favorite) Asian markets in metro Detroit?

I keep a few in rotation:

For general grocery items (non-produce), I usually go to E.Mart (16 & Dequindre), mainly out of proximity. Although their inventory is mostly Korean, they typically have enough of the "basics" from other countries to complete my shopping list. But if I lived in Ypsi or Ann Arbor, I'd definitely go to Hua Xing, which seems to be the largest and most diverse market in the area.

For produce and uncommon seafood, I always go to Kim Nhung (13 & Dequindre). Although their grocery leans Viet/Thai, their produce is quite all-encompassing. Their selection of greens is spectacular, and I appreciate that they have both purple yam and Japanese sweet potato. Very cheap, too. They're also my go-to for any Viet or Thai grocery items. Although, there's another comparably-good (and actually cleaner) Viet grocery in the same strip mall as Thuy Trang. Can't remember the name of it, and I'd go there if Kim Nhung didn't have what I was looking for.

How about Japanese groceries? Noble Fish (14 & Livernois/Main) is decent, especially for sushi-grade fish, but the inventory can be limited (simply because of limited space in the store).

Thuy Trang Restaurant
30491 John R Rd, Madison Heights, MI 48071

Noble Fish
45 E 14 Mile Rd, Clawson, MI 48017
