Looking for delicious thai food! The Pacific Mercantile is the best
The Pacific Mercantile is located conveniently between my office and my house (much to the chagrin of my wallet). An avid home cook, I've been on an Asian kick lately and have visited Pacific Mercantile to stock up on the necessary ingredients for homemade pad Thai, hot and sour soup, green curry, and soba salad.
There's a wide selection of Asian grocery items, whether you want flavors from Japan, Thailand, Korea, or China. I was impressed by the variety. I got a good price on anchovy paste for a Spanish dish I was making.
There are also some interesting items that seem out-of-place but apparently reflect the influence of Europeans on some Asian nations. There's Droste chocolate, coffee with chicory, and a few other items.
Great selection of packaged foods, especially Japanese snacks! This little market is a diamond in the rough. It's got fish sauce, thai curry mixes, pocky sticks and a variety of other packaged goods from different asian countries. Their fresh food sections (vegetables and meats) is slim. If they had a wider selection of veggies. The cashiers are humorous and incredibly helpful.
