My wife and I were happy to find we were the only white people shopping in this little Asian market. Makes us feel like we are in another country. We love that about Fubon up in Portland.
This store is about the same size as the other Asian markets in the area but might not have EVERYTHING your looking for. My wife and I love the weird produce and candies which are more abundant here than at Sunrise. However they don't have quite as much variety in other departments.
The smell everyone is taking about isn't that bad. I say go to Fubon and I think they will retract that statement. Fubon has a VERY VERY strong fish smell that most can't handle. Kings is mildly stinky which again adds to that out of country feeling I look for at Asian Markets.
The prices are MUCH cheaper here than anywhere else too.
Fubon is extremely unorganized...at least to us Americans. Again adding to that feeling.
If your a true ""foodie"" / risk taker and not some stuck up yuppie you likes to pretend they are cultured stop here. Otherwise stick to Sunrise.
