Fry’s and Basha’s might be your favorite grocery store for eggs, milk, bread, and other common American foods. But when you need fish sauce, soba noodles, or kimchee, you’d better head to Lee Lee Oriental Supermarket in Chandler or Peoria. The store also stocks hard-to-find produce like bitter melon, lychee, Thai eggplant, Korean daikon, and kohlrabi, as well as meat like duck (head on or off), goat, octopus, and beef neck. And when you’re sick of American convenience foods, there’s even an entire aisle devoted to different types of ramen from halfway across the world. Although primarily an Asian market, Lee Lee imports food from over 30 countries worldwide, including Holland, Peru, Sweden, New Zealand, and Croatia. No matter what your international craving, chances are you’ll find something satisfying here, such as unique candies and snacks. And don’t forget to check out the frozen section where there are countless varieties of steam buns, gyoza, and samosas.
