Default Asian Markets in SLC area?

Ive had the great pleasure to live all over the world and being exposed to so many great cultures. To me, one of the best expressions of cultural identity is in the food. I dont live in SLC, but we travel there often for health care and shopping. Unfortunatly, I dont know where a asian grocer is in the area. I like mostly Japanese, Korean, and Thai, and some Indian. Is there any large multiethnic stores like LeeLee market or Ranch 99 in the area? If not, where are the asian markets in town and which ones are reccomended?

My favorite was always Southeast Supermarket next to Liberty Park (have a lot of Thai and Vietnamese stuff), then probably Super China Market in Sandy.

Old thread but good stuff here so I thought I'd add some more for reference.

I've recently gotten into Asian cooking and have been really impressed with these four stores. Here's my thoughts for anyone else interested in checking them out:

OceanMart (formerly Super China Mart) - 115 W 9000 S, Sandy - I like how one online reviewer called this the "Asian Albertsons"! It's enormous and well worth browsing just for fun since you don't feel crowded like in most other Asian markets. It has entire aisles dedicated to product categories... there's an entire frozen aisle, dish and cookware aisles, liquids and sauces aisle, teas and bottled drinks aisle, sweets and snacks aisle, a decent selection of hard to find asian fruits and vegetables, and even a quite good selection of South Asian/Indian dry and liquid goods. I've made some fun discoveries like the sparkly but non-carbonated Calpico drinks (Strawberry is delish!), Mochi Red Bean ice cream, Korean melons, and sticky rice moulds. Some common fruits and veggies are cheaper than other grocery stores and you can find Tofu for a buck! The store also sells fresh meats and seafood and has a little mini-restaurant on the right side of the entrance (has boba drinks!), but I'm too put off by the smell of the store to trust the fresh stuff that can spoil.

Qaaderi Sweetz and Spices/Chaat House (Indian/Pakistani) - 3546 S Redwood Rd, WVC - This place has a wide variety of spices, beans, lentils, flours, teas, beauty products (coconut oil, henna), snacks, fresh vegetables (some you can't find elsewhere), frozen stuff, etc. It is quite small with only two aisles to peruse (though they pack a big punch!) but it also has an attached small restaurant with some decent food that reminds me of a cross between the fast-food at Curry and a Hurry and a sit-down restaurant. They also have a bunch of Indian sweets that they make fresh that are really fun to try. And of course there is an enormous Indian DVD purchase and rental selection although you can find much cheaper prices online.

House of Spices (Indian) - 4134 Carriage Square, WVC - Right off of Redwood and about a block south of Qaaderi above, this one is like a more simple version of Qaaderi with no restaurant and a tiny DVD section. I really like the owner here and he will discuss recipes and suggestions with you. House of Spices tends to have a lot of bulk things and less quantity than Qaaderi, but it also has a medium-sized beauty section, puja/incense/decor section, a small frozen and refrigerated section (try the Indian ice cream!) and some pretty Indian figurines/jewelry/decor etc. under the register case. But I think my favorite item found here was the naan - NOT frozen, but pre-baked and sealed so you only have to pull it out, heat it in the oven for a few minutes, and you have restaurant-quality naan...mmm!

Southeast Supermarket (called Southeast Asian Market above) - 422 East 900 South, SLC - Mentioned above, and is like a much smaller version of OceanMart in Sandy but often has things there that OceanMart doesn't have. I think my favorite part was how friendly and helpful the staff were. Used to smell pretty stinky but has greatly improved the last couple of times I've been in. The restaurant attached to it is now closed.

Happy Asian food shopping!

Has anyone been to the new "Asian City" that's hard-to-miss on the corner of Redwood Road of 9000 South in West Jordan? It apparently opened up about a month ago and is supposed to be some kind of asian food and and gift mecca, though the website hasn't been updated so I haven't gotten the courage to go. Here's the Trib's blurb about it: New Asian mall coming to W. Jordan | Bite by Bite | The Salt Lake Tribune
