D&G Supermarket, Swatow Plaza, Chinatown?
Just read on another (non-foodcentric) Montréal blog that this Asian supermarket is up and running. See Shattered here visited and said it was "packed". Has anyone else been there yet? How does it compare in terms of price, quality and variety to the other East and Southeast Asian supermarkets people have visited on this blog?
I have heard no news yet about the restaurants.
I've been a few times since it's close to home. Very busy after office hours. Prices are similar to Hawaii where I used to go. They don't have as big of a selection but so far I've found everything I was looking for.
Found the produce department below average(compared to Kim Phat), meat and seafood slightly above average(very fresh and clean,). Prices are about the same, products are understandably Chinese orientated, you won't find fresh lemongrass or Vietnamese herbs for example. However, they do have a great extensive dried Chinese ingredients section for your Asian soupy desserts.
My impression too. Went by a Sun aft about an hour before close, and the lines were a mile long at every cash. Made a b-line for the back and periphery just to get a feel for the place. Impressive looking seafood area, and yeah, prices aren't noticeably cheaper than other smaller grocery stores in the areas (iow, dirt cheap anywhere).
I'm surprised the Plaza site doesn't list the restos by name. I could see they were open, but didn't bother noting the names.
