I never knew this place exist in this part of town until I drove by on Central Ave. This market is very clean and have all kind of foods. They have everything from fresh produce to live seafood and lots of meat. At first when I walked into the market, one thing that I realized immediately is that it doesn't have the smell that other asian market has. The place is very clean. I walked down to the seafood area and see all kinds of fish. They have live tilapia, crab, lobster, clams, crawfish, blue crabs..yes, live. The price is very cheap too. Like Dungeoness crab for $3.89/lb, lobster $5.99/lb. I've never seen it that low any where. When I walk over to the meat department, it looks just like costco and the price is even more agressive. They have all kind of meats, lamb, goat, pork, beef, and also free range chicken. They have ten of thousands of items on their grocery shelves that clearly categorized. Huge collection of Viet, Phillipino, Chinese, Korean, Taiwanese, Japanese...you name it. What I like the most is their selection of snacks. Just awesome! I've been telling my friends about this great discovery, and everyone who came agree that this market is clean and their price is lowest in the city of Kent.
Winco is quite an experience. Open 24/7, you will find them mobbed at 11:00 pm on a Saturday night. Many of their prices can't be beaten. (Prices do vary sometimes). Some of their products cannot be found elswhere. Their meats and deli department are terrific! This is a BIG store! Unfortunately I do not trust their dairy or ice cream products. Restocking such a big store means that products may sit on pallets too long unrefridgerated. Still, I love this store for the products and prices I can only find at Winco.
Punjab foods is the best place to buy india stuff. they have the great customer service and people are very friendly. I never seen any other Indian store who provide that good service in WA area, Normally indian store owners are so rude specially in Bellevue side they don't care if their products have any complaint but these people they do care about the products. I am living in Wa from last 6 years and went to every single indian stores in WA and rated this one at No1 . Now i don't go anywhere else.
