Hard to Find REAL Asian food in Brevard County
- Guam Girl Sep 18, 2004 11:27 AM
Looking for the following items in central Florida:
(Willing to travel up to 1.5 hours from Titusville)
A real asian grocery store. Looking for real lumpia wraps. Sushi wraps, seasoned or unseasoned.
Looking for bakery that carries Goldilocks brand (filipino baked goods), or equivalent.
Looking for thai dipping sauces for lumpia.
Looking for ANY store that can possibly provide items in this category.
Doesn't anyone know what tempura sauce is at Walmart? At least they carry Kikkoman soy sauce!!!
It is REAL SAD that these stores are rare to find. I can't find these good foods offered authentically in any restuarant/store, so I must make my own!
You should get copies of the Melbourne Yellowpages, the Orlando Yellowpages, and the Daytona Yellowpages, or visit the library, since the Titusville Yellowpages will not list many places a mere 30-45 minutes away. You could also search Bellsouth online under "Grocers" and "Oriental Goods", but it can be frustrating and incomplete.
Since you are willing to drive so far: if you are only looking for dry goods, shopping on the Internet is also viable, but not nearly as fun.

There are plenty of grocers, especially around Colonial Drive and Mills. I always start with Dong-A Co at 816 Mills Rd, 898-9227, since they have a massive selection of fresh, frozen, and packaged goods. I had to buy a large ice chest since it is more than an hour away. They are 30 minutes from you.
