Asia Express Oriental Supermarket, Leeds

A handy little supermarket that stocks a small range of Japanese products

Asia Express is a small shop selling a selection of East Asian food and drinks. Just like its neighbour, Taste the Orient, the store has a selection of Japanese products amongst those from China and Korea but is no rival for the bigger store. This said it is still a good source for sweets and snacks, rice and basic cooking ingredients. On a recent visit I noticed a small freezer filled with some of my favourite ice cream flavours including green tea and black sesame.

Examples of products for sale:
Rice and miso.
Sushi-making ingredients.
Sweets and snacks including Koala March and Pocky.
Japanese-style ice cream.

Opening Times:

Shop Online? No
Japanese-Speaking Staff? No


Use this one myself, friendly and helpfull. Not as big a selection as the other, but more welcoming staff.
