Seeking Hudson Valley source for Asian ingredients

Does anyone know of any Asian grocery stores in or around Poughkeepsie? I would travel further afield even. There used to be a great market where I could find Asian vegetables, noodles, sauces for cooking and I miss it so much. Thanks.

  1. route 376, new hackensack plaza is one. they get dim-sum from nj and nyc on saturday mornings.

    there was a sign up for a "phil-asian" place just down the road from adams on rte 44, other side of the street, but it was taken down from the windows last week.

    1. the name of the store that bob mentioned is welcome oriental grocery. there's also a decent place in hopewell junction (corner of 376 and 82) called hopewell farms. they sell a lot of asian ingredients (mostly korean) and fresh produce at great prices.

        just a quick update on hopewell farms. they're expanding the store...i stopped by to pick up some fruit and was surprised to see that they tore down the wall on the right side. it's almost double the size now. the new freezer section contained several korean ingredients. the cashier told me that they're planning to have a meat section. if they end up carrying bulgogi and kalbi, i will be SO thrilled. no more 1 1/2 hr+ trips to nj!

          i just wanted to add that along with various types of dim sum they pick up in nyc on saturdays, welcome oriental grocery now carries pork banh mi. they're absolutely delicious!

        2. Thanks. That's very helpful! I remembered that in Uptown Kingston there is a wonderful place on Wall Street called Kimm's. They don't have fresh produce but many noodles, condiments, etc.

          1. I've been having the same trouble!! I took an Asian cooking class at the CIA and now I can't find the ingredients!

            There is a Thai grocery store in Beacon next to the Sukhothai on Main St. I can't remember if they have fresh veggies or not.

            1. Just got back from a Filipino grocery on Rt. 32 in New Windsor. Noodles, condiments and marinades, some frozen fish, meat and vegetables. I don't recall much in the line of fresh vegetables, though

              2. there's a new thai grocery that opened right next to sukhothai in beacon. i checked it out this weekend. assorted noodles, spices, condiments, vegetables, snacks...looks pretty good.

                2. phil-asian opened up just across from (1/8 mile east) from adams. took a quick stop in, very bare bones, but seemed to have a bunch of filipino stuff, as well as a few cooked items. didn't have time to check further out, maybe someone else can?

                    Yes, this Phil-Asian Foods up the street from Adams grocery on Rte 44 just opened. They are primarily a Filipino grocery store and have hot food to serve. They have a small hot food selection during the weekdays but the weekends are busy. I have had their traditional filipino breakfast which is offered only Sat and Sun. It is garlic rice, 2 eggs sunny up (other if you prefer) and either a sweet sausage or sweet pork (like canadian bacon)... delicious. A small grocery but there are fresh filipino baked items and fresh vegetables which are from the city fresh. They carry all the traditional basics to cook filipino food but the owners/shop keepers are so nice and helpful. They also write down the requests of what items people are looking for and a week later they stock their shelves with it. Great little place to get what I need and a surprise when it comes to getting the cooked hot food which I have tried 3 times and always delicious! Try it out!

                  2. You can try www.pinoyoutlet.com

                    It is on 301 Main Street Beacon NY. They have all sorts of Asian foods with a core of them being Filipino

                    1. This lady will get you ANYTHING you want BY THE CASE. It's well worth the trip.
