I know I already published a post about grocery shopping in Beijing but because of the interest in this topic (both from my readers and from myself :-)) I have decided to show you my local Chinese supermarket and what went into my newly acquired shopping trolley today.
I've been warned about buying frozen goods (as apparently they may have been thawed and refrozen) but Rebecca and I love bao - these soft buns that contain either pork meat or vegetables. So I got a pack of them but couldn't read what they contained. Turned out it was a not very tasty onion and spinach combination.
We do have a couple of supermarkets with "western" goods near our apartment - but this supermarket is much closer and perfectly fine for most things. It also has the authenticity I like! In fact, I have never seen other foreigners here.
I do not buy fresh meat here! It's not packed but just sort of lying on a table in huge pieces.
There are also things I can't get here. For example cereal (except from porridge powder :-)).
