Oceanview Asian Market on Alemany

bernalgirl | Sep 29, 2007 10:22 PM

Has anybody else visited the new, spacious Oceanview Market on Alemany where Cala used to be?

The place is huge and spotless and carries a diverse array of Asian dry goods, housewares, a bakery and a full liquor section and produce that seems much fresher than that at MOM, as well as decent butcher/live fish counters. I was there too early in the day to judge the prepared foods, but they do have a steam table, the usual roast ducks and chickens and a milk tea counter.

I don't know how their prices compare to the best Asian groceries in the Avenues, but this place isn't much further out than MOM and it's much easier to park and navigate. In my quick perusal, I think MOM may have a better selection of fresh soy products and such. However, this store carries some organics, including the soba/noodle line I've been getting at Nijiya, as well as a wide selection of the Wei-chuan products discussed in the linked thread below (many of which are on sale right now). The freezer section is positively vast and a bit difficult to figure out.

I can't find it via google or an archive search, but it's in the shopping center containing a Bally Fitness (3900 block), the cross streets are Kempton Ave & Palmetto Ave.
