Looking for frozen turtles? Mangosteen, rambutan or fresh coconuts? A selection of dozens upon dozens of distinctive soya sauce brands? Specialty Asian drinks? I’m talking about Calpico, Pocari Sweat, Basil Seed, Ramune vintage soda, White Fungus Bird’s Nest, your choice of any Foco fruit drink and many, many more. Marché Hawaii has it all. I’m not joking. They even have a spa for shoppers needing some relaxation time as well as a small Vietnamese restaurant at the front of the store if, you know, you get hungry after looking at all the great food on display. Located in Ville St-Laurent, the Asian grocer is stocked full of ‘exotic’ and hard to find fruits, vegetables, protein, condiments, snacks and desserts all priced at a very affordable rate.
Often times, the best and most authentic restaurants are found off the beaten path – no matter where you are. Asie Moderne is a little gem tucked away on Poirier street in Ville St-Laurent offering a mix of Cambodian and Thai food. Don’t be put off by the location or the outer condition of the place – the quality and price of the food, not to mention the service is more than enough to make up for the trip out there. The service is reliably quick as the food reaches your table less than five minutes after you order, and the food consistently delivers the same great taste.
