Kam Man Quincy shopping trip

PinchOfSalt | Jan 10, 2014 12:06 PM

It was time to restock my Chinese pantry, and too long since the last visit, so yesterday I went to Kam Man in Quincy. Lots of good stuff, as usual, but the big news was that it has expanded from its original size. Many of the small stalls that were in the adjacent area in the same building appear to have been absorbed into a larger floorplan. Folks might want to know that

- There is now a small wine and spirits area. There were several different brands of Shao Xing wine that were not adulterated with salt (e.g. not "cooking wine"). Yay!

- There is a good-sized Korean section.

- There is a very small Indian section. I was able to score some amchur powder without having to make that special trip to Moody Street in Waltham.

- The housewares/small appliances section is much much larger than before.

I also noticed a new supermarket, Lucky Supermarket, directly across the street. Time did not permit a visit. Anyone know if it has anything that is not already available at Kam Man?
