Very disappointed with their bakery, I bought their $4.99 raisin bread, it was spoil, I also bought 3 of their thousand years egg with custard pie, it was $1.89 a piece, it got unfresh smell, I totally spent $20.00 in their bakery, only the walnut cookies is eatable.

Fresh Asian Market is a combination of deli counter, restaurant and small grocery. Fresh Market is known for it's produce, but it has so much more to offer. Their small but very tasty menu is perfect for take-out or lunch. You just can't beat a healthy Asian diet. They usually have at least four kinds of fresh Tofu, including my favorite, Japanese. Sushi is made fresh, in house, and you can taste the difference. Vareity is good, but I wish it was a bit cleaner.

My 8 year old daughter and I Ventured into this market for the very first time today in search of Mirin, (a sweet Japanese rice wine) and a Miso Glaze with Yuzu. We were both taken back by the sheer size of the place. The largest oriental market I've ever seen and admittedly, the only oriental market I??ve ever been in. Most impressive was the seafood section located in the very back of the store, albeit from the pungent smell that greets you as you walk past the music and DVD shop located just inside the front door, your nose might lead you to believe otherwise. The variety of seafood was astounding, all fresh and plentiful. Live fish, eel, lobster, crabs, and shrimp, filled the various tanks located adjacent to the filleted pieces.

As a comparison, I had purchased some Sea Bass and sea Scallops at the Fresh Market in Dr. Phillips the day prior and the butcher behind the counter was attempting to upsell me on a special they had just put up on their red snapper at $9.99 lb (regularly priced at $15.99 lb), yet the snapper at First Oriental was at $6.99 lb and looked as fresh if not fresher than the Fresh Market selection. As for the items my daughter and I entered to find, we searched for quite some time and had no luck on our own. We then tried to ask for some help, but quickly realized that the staff??s English was very limited. We were able to locate the Mirin with the help of one staff member but no luck on the Miso.

The product selection, while varied, appeared to favor more Chinese, Vietnamese, and Thai products. Some great ideas for other recipes I plan to try in the future. While we left without finding exactly what we were looking for, I have a strong suspicion the product is there somewhere in the store, we just weren??t able to find it. All in all a great find and a place I will return to for anything Oriental I need. It has also just become my new fish market.

One additional note, this market experience is unlike what you're children may be accustomed to at their local American stores. My daughter happened to get a glimpse through an open doorway at a couple of large pigs hanging from hooks in the back of the hot food section with head and all still attached and a father daughter dialogue ensued...

This is the best Oriental grocery store around. They have it all.... fresh fish, so fresh they are still swimming, crustations and most everything else fishy. There are isles and isles of food and produce, all with an Oriental flair. The bakery is wonderful! My kids love the coconut buns and egg tarts. They have it all!

Located on west Colonial near Kirkman, 1st Oriental is the largest Asian supermarket that I've seen anywhere in Florida or anywhere in the US for that matter! They have a large selection of mostly Chinese food items, but also sell Japanese, Vietnamese, Thai, Philippine, and American items as well.

When you first come in, the bakery section is on your left. They have a large assortment of Chinese and American freshly baked goods such as egg tarts, roast pork buns, sesame seed balls, coconut buns and alot more. If you keep moving left to the first aisle, you will immediately see fresh roasted meat hanging on skewers behind a glass counter. This is a familiar site if you've ever been to a city with a large Chinatown section. Here they offer bbq pork, roast pig, roast duck, peking duck, bbq ribs, chicken wings, roast chicken, soy sauce chicken and an abundance of sauteed items that change every day. The best value for lunch can be found here as you can get a single item "lunch box" with rice for about $4.25.

They also sell fresh noodles (refrigerated), fruits, a large variety of veggies, teas, candies, cooking sauces and oils, dried noodles, cooking utensils, frozen foods, drinks, and so much more. However, I would be remiss if I didn't mention their meat and fresh seafood section. Here butchers will take your order for a wide selection of meats; they even have fresh ground pork. In the seafood section, they have the biggest variety of fresh fish I have ever seen: whole grouper, blue fish, pompano, perch, snapper, catfish, bass, etc. Not done yet! They also have live fish and seafood: eel, bass, talapia, shrimp, lobster, blue crabs, dungeoness crabs, and conch!

It's enough to make your head spin, in fact plan on spending over an hour there shopping the first few times until you learn where everything is. I really enjoy shopping there as the variety and selection of Asian foods under one roof is second to none!

PROS: Very large selection of asian foods, onsite bakery, fresh seafood, fresh meat.
CONS: The staff has limited English speaking abilities.

Worst service ever. We went to buy some of the fish and the guy working was the rudest person I have ever come across and had a smirk on his face as he made the most sarcastic and rude comments. This isn't the first time this has happened

The worst service in the world in the 1st Oriental Supermarket. I am Chinese, but I have to speak out here. I bought a can of lemon honey tea. The taste was horrible when I opened it. I was wondering why? It is supposed to be delicious
