Nice place, and not nearly as crowded as the places on Argyle. I have been coming here weekly (at least) for about two years...
BUT...........
Today they just lost my business for good!
On a whim, I stopped in for some snack food and picked up a bag of veggie chips (Aji "Fabulous"). Every bag on the shelf was marked $1.95. The register scanned at $2.49. I confronted the cashier (a young girl, not the usual guy who always checks me out), and asked me to pay first, signaling that she'd get the manager. While I waited, the manager discussed it with the cashier, went back to the shelf for a while, looked at the bags some more, scratched the price tags with her fingernail, scanned the item again, looked at me and said confidently "it's $2.49" I explained that they have to charge what it is marked... wheat they ALL are marked. She just stated that the price tag is wrong, it's $2.49. And proceeded to just stare at me. I looked around for my usual cashier (who has always been very helpful - including finding specific items many times over), but he was not around. Finally, the manager asked "You don't want?". I just took it anyway, figuring that it is "only $.50" -- but what really upsets me is the principle of the thing, and the sad part is that if this part is that for a mere $.50, any business should not hesitate to fix things for the customer. Not here -- I am completely appalled and offended that this woman basically made me feel like I was wrong!
Sorry, you lost my business -- from now on I wait in line on Argyle.

This all-purpose Asian market has the cleanliness associated with a chain store and the friendliness of a family market. It doesn't have a lot of fresh produce, but it does have a large and varied selection of packaged and frozen food, as well as meat, seafood and tofu. You can buy everything from Indian marinades to Japanese candies. Speaking of which, try the Hi-Chew--you won't regret it!

PROS: clean, friendly, variety of products
CONS:

Golden Pacific is a small Asian grocery store in Edgewater, but it's one of the best out there. Their produce is always extremely fresh, the store is impeccibly clean, and the owners are helpful and friendly. Their prices tend to be a big higher on some things than in a regular grocery store, but their selection of hard to find items is impressive. They have a large section of vegetarian fake meats as well as spices and herbs.

I love this Asian market, which is located just north of Vietnamese/Chinatown. Out of all the Asian grocery stores this one is the newest and cleanest. The prices are really reasonable for lots of things like fresh vegetables. The owner and staff are always friendly and recommending products. They even give out samples and chat you up in a nice way...not a hard selling kind of way. The store is well laid out, bright, clean and affordable. They also have a parking lot.

SUPER CLEAN, affordable, and excellent service. It is a great market for your basics in Oriental cooking. I have been shopping at local markets for many years, and this is one of the best. They have a great selection of everything. I especially like the various sauces, noodles, imported drinks, and fresh produce (baby bokchoy and chinese broccoli!! YUM!). This is also the perfect place to introduce a friend to Oriental cooking without worrying about them being turned off by strong odors or cluttered aisles. The employees are very helpful. If you are a loyal customer, they give you new products to try for free. Check it out, it's fantastic!
