Great Ethnic Supermarkets

By Stett Holbrook


THAT single "ethnic foods" aisle in Safeway looks pretty weak compared to these five ethnic superstores.

Hankook If there's a bigger Korean grocery store in Silicon Valley, I haven't found it. Check out the high-tech kimchi makers. 1092 E. El Camino Real, Sunnyvale. 408.244.0871.

India Cash and Carry The fresh paratha and naan are worth the trip alone. 1032 E. El Camino Real, Sunnyvale. 408.735.7383.

Mi Pueblo Food Center With its taqueria, bakery and huge grocery and meat selection, this is your one-stop Latino market. 235 E. Julian St, San Jose. 408.292.3177.

Nijiya Market Bento boxes, sushi-grade tuna and other Japanese treats. 143 E. El Camino Real, Mountain View. 650.691.1600.

Tin Tin Market Even though it now faces competition from the proliferation of Ranch 99 markets, this grocery store is still a great source for all kinds of Asian edibles. 10881 S. Blaney Ave, Cupertino. 408.255.7804.
