Byng27 Mar 6, 2007 04:59 AM

Just move from Toronto, Ontario Canada to a town outside Hull, and I'm having difficulty finding ingredients from ASDA, Tesco and other stores that's geared for Jamaican, Filipino specialty recipes, and so'z with Lebanese food. Can anyone help me out where can I find stores that carries these food products/ingredients???? The Chinese supermarket that I found in Hull got just a limited vareity of products. So, I'm kinda stuck right.

    I'm not very familiar with that area, but I think you're going to struggle to find that kind of food - particularly if you've already been to a Chinese supermarket and have been disappointed by the limited range. You might have more luck in Leeds, as it has a more mixed community.

      Thanks for the reply Theresa...... been scouring the web for any stores around this area... no such luck!!! A friend of mine suggested Leeds or Manchester.... so it looks like hubby and I will have to find time to drive that way to find stuff. Cross my fingers that someone knows something near.....

        Hi there,

        I'm afraid it is unlikely you'll find what you are looking for in the Hull area - it isn't especially multicultural so there is little demand within the local community for these ingredients. There may be a Jamaican food stall in the market in Hull? I think that you would have to head for sheffield, leeds or manchester to find what you want - between 50 - 90 mins driving time depending where you go. Good Luck!
