Best Asian Market Phoenix 2012 - Mekong Market
Colorful parrot fish? Check. Purple yams? Check. Asian stink fruit? Check. Whatever you're looking for in the way of exotic Asian goods, Mekong's got it. The Vietnamese market has one of the most beautiful displays of fish in the Valley, plus loads of exotic produce, and the shelves are stocked high with various fish oils, spices, dried snacks, and canned goods from coffees to sweet milks. The supermarket also has an extensive frozen food selection that you may need a translator to navigate, and next door you'll find a small Chinese bakery that produces delicious meaty steamed buns and flaky pastries. The best part of this market is the super-low prices – everything starts off cheap and then they give you 10 percent off at the register. Score!
