I love going to the Sapa market in Prague, after all, shopping for Asian groceries is always combined with local food, when I usually can’t resist grilled pork belly “Bún chả“, beef with noodles “Bún bò Nam Bộ” or fish soup “Bún cá“.
However, Sapa is across the whole of Prague from me, so when I simply lack a few ingredients at home, I go shopping much closer – to the grocery store in Zlatnická Street (where you can also find Next Door by Imperial and Café Imperial owned by Zdeněk Pohlreich).
The shop looks like a typical Vietnamese convenience store, offering a standard range of goods. The front part is indeed like that. The interesting part is only in the back spaces and especially in the last small room. Here you can find a relatively wide selection of Asian sauces, noodles, or frozen food.
But it also includes Asian sweets and savory snacks.
In the store, you will also find a section with pastes for the preparation of Asian dishes. The offer is dominated by my most favorite paste manufacturer – Asian Home Gourmet. Their products are inspired by traditional recipes, the pastes are made from quality natural ingredients, and usually do not contain artificial colors, preservatives, or monosodium glutamate.
The biggest treasure, however, is a refrigerating box with fresh herbs, vegetables, and fruit. You will find coriander, perilla, and many others, whose names I don’t even know.
The Asian grocery store in Zlatnická Street can be a great choice if you live far from Sapa in Prague. Card payment is possible in the store.
