As long as there is choice in this neighborhood, I will NOT do any grocery shopping in this supermarket because of my bad experience there.

To name just a couple, the frozen black sea cucumbers are simply not eatable---after being unfrozen, they broke in bits and pieces when touched lightly. Obviously, these sea cucumbers had undergone refrozen process, and probably more than once, or perhaps they had started to go bad before being frozen. Whatever the case it may be, this kind of food should not be sold. My $6.99 wasted just like that!

Another amazing thing is---I haven't seen any packed food with date on it thus consumers don't even have a clue whether the food they're interested in are fresh or not. As far as I'm concerned, this "tactic" is totally unacceptable.

For several lines of foods, at least many (if I can say most) of them are made in China. Knowing the deteriorating and widely spread unsafe food practice in China, I choose not to go anywhere near them.

And the employees there are not friendly at all, some of them rudely push their working carts directly towards customers, and most cashiers don't have the slightest intention to greet and say good-bye to their customers.

What can I say? Very unpleasant shopping experience.

THE FOLLOWING IS AN UPDATE OF JUNE 13, 2011:

Guess what? I went to S F Market again 'cause I was in a hurry and it's the nearest, but definitely not for food from China.

When I saw some canned fruits from thailand, I picked a couple.
Upon opening the can, I realized I had been taken in again because the inside wall of the can was covered with mold, and the fruit (Longan) only occupying half the can. Just a taste of one longan turned me right off, leaving a strong chemical taste on my tongue. What could I do? Throw them away again, waste again. Even if I was rich, I wouldn't waste money and food like this.

Refusing to believe this was really a product of Thailand, I looked at the can label again,. Sure enough, it also says "imported by Oriental Foodbank, Inc." , and it is on the original packing. What does that indicate?

Even after about a week, the annoying taste (a combination of bitterness, sourness, acerbity and some hard-to-describe tastes) on my tongue still hasn't gone away. I'm thinking of sending the unopened can to FDA for examination.

I'm not sure about this Oriental Foodbank, Inc.(although highly suspicious) but I don know that there are quite a few unhealthy and toxic food lines from China, which have found their way into Chinese supermarkets in the US for quite a while. Some of them are probably imported, processed here in "China-style" way, and then distributed in the US; some even under the fake product origins, such as Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia and etc.; some bearing packings in in those languages as well as in Korean and Japanese and so on, making consumers believe those foods are of decent quality from countries other than China.

I simply cannot over-emphasize: For the sake of your/your family health, be EXTRA EXTRA-CAUTIOIUS when shopping in Chinese supermarket.

Even though it can be a pain to go on the weekends, they have a great variety of produce and food available. Its great that they have a bakery in here as well.

The produce is cheap but not clean. Seafood is not fresh. The whole supermarket smells bad. Workers are not friendly at all. Some of them are even rude.
