Welcome to Tacoma’s newest Asian supermarket — Hong Kong Supermarket.

The store opened in April in Tacoma’s Lincoln neighborhood, one of my favorite dining districts with a concentration of Southeastern Asian restaurants like no other in the region.

The opening actually is a relocation from Hong Kong Supermarket’s former aging, cramped space just off 38th and Yakima. Its move around the corner is to a newly constructed building sitting on the site of the former Lincoln Lanes bowling alley. The grocery store with a sparkling appearance is well-appointed for shopping and dining.

Here’s a look at the store and what you’ll find:

Where: 3828 Yakima Ave., Tacoma; 253-471-0744

Opened: April 13 with a ribbon-cutting ceremony with Tacoma Mayor Marilyn Strickland.

You’ll find: Ingredients to make just about any dish from Asia you can imagine, but with a specialty in Southeast Asian ingredients. The aisles are stocked with everything from kimchi to banh mi; from mochi to pennywort tea.

Produce: Find hard-to-find frozen durian, the fruit known for its penetrating stink; and a wide range of fresh Southeast Asian produce, such as fresh lemongrass and ginger.

Meat and seafood: Shoppers will find fish tanks filled with live seafood (tilapia, lobster and catfish) and a sizeable butcher case.

Pungent durian is sold frozen at Hong Kong Supermarket. Roasted and barbecued pork is sold by the phone at Hong Kong Supermarket. IMG_20140501_134110 The vertical rotisserie at Hong Kong Supermarket.
