All supermarkets have their minor differences: there’s the yummy ice cream at the Coles near your Nan’s, but the Foodworks down the road has that crazy selection of cheese. Thai Kee IGA pushes the boundaries of what a grocery store can provide. There are your Western foods, fruit and veg and whatever you need, but it’s all about the aisles of groceries from China, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, the Philippines and Thailand. Sauces are bountiful; as are the snacks whose flavours you may not recognise but are guaranteed to be amazing. Take a jacket because you’ll be in the frozen section for a while – dumplings, seafood, green tea ice cream…and it’s cheap!
