Hawaii Supermarket, Rosemead :)

I went to Hawaii Supermarket for the first time today. I really liked the prices in there: Green beans (99 cents a pound), baby coconuts (99 cents each), green onions (25 cents a bunch). For less than $10, I got two bags of groceries.
There are some great treats in from of the market too. Fresh watermelon juice with boba (1.75) and a delicious small cake filled with custard (60 cents)-- these were heavenly. I wish I had checked this place out sooner, and I wish I bought more of those tiny custard cakes. :)

I hate to agree but I've stopped going there after 3 tries. Parking is a nightmare, the people are really rude - openly stealing parking spots and cutting in line in the seafood area, etc. And good luck trying to find anything if you can't speak the language.
The prices are good, that's true, but at the end of the day, I think I'd pay maybe 5 bucks more total in a cleaner and better organized Chinese supermarket. I discovered 99 Ranch will have weekly specials and they can be great deals.
Green onions are 20 cents at the 168 market on Valley. :p LOL
I love the prices at Chinese markets.
i went to a western market for the first time in years (vons on national and castle heights).
i had forgotton how freaking expensive everything was.
shit poor selection, 4-5 times more expensive... i shop in ktown or san gabriel.
