Grocery Shops in Perth

Posted June 3rd, 2010 in Perth WA 28 Comments »

Due to the rapid foreign population growth of Perth, there are many Asian grocery shops around Perth and other surrounding suburbs.  There should be at least one shop near your house if you live within Metro area, although there are still only a few grocery shops down south: Mandurah Oriental Shop in Mandurah, Jacaranda Oriental Supermarket & Cynthia’s Asian Food Supply in Bunbury.

As I’m Japanese, I tend to go to grocery shops that sell many Japanese products.  Some Japanese products are made in Singapore, Taiwan, or elsewhere, but I try not to buy any Chinese-looking packaged foods even though the contents are Japanese food.  For example, “Japanese style mochi” but the package language is all Chinese and the production country is also China.  I’m still sensitive against China’s food safety (although China signed an agreement for establishing a cooperation mechanism on food safety (news))  … well, it’s almost impossible to not to buy any China products nowadays though.

Anyway, here are a list of Asian grocery shops that I often go to.

    Hi Ume,

    I have never been to Japan but my best friend has been several times and she always brings me back delicious Japanese snacks – I especially love the green tea biscuits and beer jelly chocolates (from Sapporo) – do you know if any of the shops you have mentioned sell these particular snacks? 🙂

    Hi LadyPrunella,

    I’m not sure about beer jelly chocolates, but Maruyu in Barrack street may sell the green tea biscuits 😀

    I love Japanese snacks too!

    Hi guys

    There is a japanese and korean snacks shop in perth city, it’s in an shopping arcade, cloister shopping arcade – a bit further down king street, opposit disk smith. They have just opened. It’s good to have different snacks in one place!!!!

    hi ume-san! I really do love your blog.

    I have a question about Maruyu, maybe you can help me. I went to the address you have listed here today, but the shop doesn’t appear to be there anymore! Do you know if it has moved, or has it closed for good?

  16. 16 umepontarou said at 4:17 am on August 10th, 2011:

    Hi Hannah,

    AAAAAA….!!! I just checked their website, and it says they closed the shop for good on July 29 🙁
    That’s a shame….

    Hey I love anything Japanese related :3 do you know any good places to get matcha powder? (100%)

  19. 19 umepontarou said at 2:40 pm on February 8th, 2014:

    Hi Fei,
    I think you can go to Nippon Food in Subiaco.
    Tokyo Mart is opening an online shop for Japanese food etc soon. You can order things online and get delivered if your suburb falls in their delivery area. I will update that soon on Umeboss 🙂

    Hi Ume
    I was wondering which of the stores you listed sell edamame beans? I too have a little one so just trying to narrow down my travelling when I search!

  21. 21 umepontarou said at 2:42 pm on February 8th, 2014:

    Hi Rambling Girl,
    This is an old post and some of them (Maruyu, Super Fuji) are closed for good already.
    I’m pretty sure most of Asian grocery shops in Perth sell edamame (frozen). I think they are from China and I haven’t seen any fresh edamame in Perth yet..

  22. 22 Joan said at 6:41 pm on September 1st, 2014:

    Have u seen “Japanese crispy chicken seaweed” frozen packs anywhere in Perth?

  23. 23 umepontarou said at 5:07 pm on September 9th, 2014:

    Hi Joan,
    What’s that!????
    Japanese crispy chicken seaweed…? Dried food?

  24. 24 Jacque said at 5:27 pm on April 16th, 2015:

    Hi Ume, hope you can help. Do you know where I can purchase any Japanese Wines (Sake)?

    Please email me details.

    Thank you 🙂

    Hi Ume,
    Where in perth can i buy shokado bento box’s?

  26. 26 umepontarou said at 8:29 pm on August 19th, 2015:

    Hi Correy,
    Do you mean boxes for Shokado Bento? Hmmm I am not sure but you can try out Fuji Mart in Subiaco, Lion Oriental Foods Co in Northbridge, or Nippon Food in Subiaco. You can call them up and ask if their suppliers have them as the suppliers may supply to those Japanese restaurants in Perth.
    Hope you find one 🙂

    Hello Ms Ume

    I love your blog.
    Do you know where I can buy kaki no tane in perth? I’m desperate to find it

  28. 28 umepontarou said at 9:01 pm on November 13th, 2016:

    Hi Akari,
    Thanks for visiting my blog! 🙂
    I’m not 100% certain, but you may be able to find Kaki-no-Tane at Fuji Mart Subiaco, or Nippon Food Subiaco. MCQ in Coventry Village or Yee Seng in Myaree may also have one. I advise you to call them beforehand to check. Hope you find one! 🙂
