We have been customers of Lee Lee Oriental Supermarket for years now, where we have enjoyed buying fresh meat, live seafood, exotic fruits, and imported specialty spices. We will go out of our way to get the delicious dinner rolls that they sell by the bag there. But imagine our surprise when my husband, who is a Bolivian native, discovered that they have many of the South American groceries that he misses from home! In fact, they regularly stock groceries from countries such as Brazil, Argentina, Columbia, Jamaica, and Holland, and they are categorized in the store by geographical area – sort of an “Epcot” experience for the grocery shopper!
While you are there try the Chinese restaurant, Hope Kee, inside the market – a Hong Kong-style café that serves Cantonese favorites such as beef chow fun, shrimp dishes, noodles, and pork chops!
