Discovering the Treasure at London's SeeWoo
Recipe of the day
Do you love nothing better than going to a Chinese restaurant, or cooking your own Vietnamese dishes at home? Are you always keen to discover authentic Thai recipes? Simply put, do you have a passion for Asian cuisine? If so, SeeWoo, the “Oriental food specialist,” is the shop for you.
If you have had a chance to pop into SeeWoo then you already know that, with its plethora of goods, it is one of the most versatile supermarkets you will ever visit. They carry over 8,000 exotic products to choose from. You can buy Chinese, Japanese, Malaysian, Thai, and Vietnamese food from SeeWoo. There are three locations in the UK—in London’s Chinatown, Glasgow, and Greenwich.
So what can you expect? The Greenwich SeeWoo is huge, but it’s organized well so it is fairly easy to find your way around. However, with so much to choose from, it can be a little overwhelming at times, so a shopping list may come in handy.
Interestingly, SeeWoo has been operative for 40 years, a fact which reflects its ability to change with the times whilst remaining unique. Where else can you find live lobster, pak choi, cream cheese, red bean dorayaki pancake, jasmine tea, Brazilian papaya, and fortune cookies all under the same roof? If you feel like making your own sushi, or creating your own authentic Chinese takeaway, you will find all the ingredients that you need. There is also the possibility of purchasing other culinary products such as cooking utensils, pretty crockery, and even festive decorations. The variety is really outstanding.
The nicest thing about SeeWoo is the amazing value. For example, you can purchase a family-sized soy sauce or sweet chilli sauce, a large pack of green tea or jasmine tea, or a pack of king prawn spring rolls for a fraction of the price you would normally pay elsewhere.
If you are a SeeWoo novice, you will be amazed at what you can find, and the price at which you can find it. All in all, you will not be disappointed if you visit today!
