Chinese style beef / pork jerky- where to buy in London
I am dying for some Beef / pork jerky but don't know where I can buy it in London. I used to go bring back some from Taiwan but its illegal to bring back and I hardly go home now.
Am travelling to Singapore in transit but again its illegal
I am after the oriental style ones that they do in the far east rather than the American/western style. My fav brand in Taiwan is Hsin dung yang in the red packaging but I have never seen it in the UK only in US :(
Have you tried any of the Wing Yip shops? They have a huge inventory of products... maybe call them to see if they stock what you're after? I got some very good Taiwanese noodles there once.
I know the meat jerky you mean but if you cannot find it in a decent chinese supermarket then I have a feeling meat products are no longer allowed to be exported outside Asia.
There are many classic meaty treats, and tin stuff I grew up on that are no longer available here even though its still sold in Asia.
Could be wrong though. Google and find out for sure.
cool thanks- i've emailed the manufacturers of the brand i liked in Taiwan who has factory in America. unfortunately we won't be getting any in uk or Europe...you would have thought they would as i know lots of people would love it - shame. Guess i will just have to gorge on it if i go America or get a chance to go far east again
There are large, well stocked chinese supermarkets in London. The main 2 I know of is See Woo in Charlton & Wing Yip in Croydon. Sure you would get it in there.
