Foodmart International in Jersey City
Has anyone been here?
Is this the same as Yaohan? On a FirstClass BBS I
frequent, there was a discussion about Yaohan in Jersey
City, where one guy raved about the place, and another
guy went and ended up agreeing with him: "Someone
posted trivia about Yaohan awhile back.
Well we finally went and had a blast.
Ate sushi, shopped for adenishiki, enoki and other
Felt like we were in Japan"
First guy replied: "Your Welcome..
I think Yaohan is the place..
The resturants are cheap.
They got a lot of good stuff..
The supermarket there not cheap, but the quality of
their meat & fish is REALLY good.
Plus they have stuff you just cannot get anywhere
"Also if you walk behind Yaohan, there is another mall
with a crabhouse and outback steakhouse.."
Because I don't ever go to Jersey City, I have no idea
if this is the place you're talking about.

>Is this the same as Yaohan?
It sounds like a completely different place. The Int'l
Market is a supermarktet that opened about 2 years ago.
No restaurants, though I know the original plans
called for opening up other stores and restaurants next
to the market.
I'd love to learn more about Yaohan..
Yes. Is there anything in particular you want to know?
As mentioned, they have a large Asian section. I guess
that's why they call themselves international. The
meat is not the greatest. I'm not cost savvy, so I
can't tell you whether they're economical. If you have
a question about where to find something, good luck.
The most important aspect to me aside from whether they
carry what I'm looking for, is how fast I can complete
my least favorite chore of shopping. In that regard, I
rank them highly.
We shop there all the time.
As someone mentioned, they have quite a selection of Asian foods (and not just chinese). it seems that spanish and a few other foods are well represented as well.
the produce is generally pretty good, and i've often had whoever is stocking the produce ask if i'd like a fresh one of whatever i was about to pick up.
a lot of fresh fish, although i've seen some 'floaters' most times, which turns me off.
meats are respectable, and there's quite a selection of body parts that i would never eat
it's best to go if you know exactly what you want, and exactly where it is! that really means, the first 4 times you go, it will be a headache, but after that, it becomes invaluable (unless you want to jump on the path to chinatown)
