Eat Asia at Daiso
A trip to the Regent Place plaza in the CBD is a quick-stop tour of all things delicious and hyper bright from Kuala Lumpur through to Kyoto. At the $2.80 Japanese emporium Daiso there is a food-focused offshoot of the store called Eat Asia. The supermarket concept is a true Tokyo shopping experience, and has roughly 2000 items you won’t find anywhere else in Australia.
The idea for Eat Asia came about to broaden the Daiso shopping experience. While prices at Eat Asia may stretch above the Daiso standard of $2.80, they still won’t break the bank. You will find rows upon rows of sauces, sodas, noodles and dried vegetables. While the store does have a particular emphasis on Japan, you’ll also find stock from Thailand, Korea and China. Eat Asia has a range of more-premium products, including an extensive selection of Japanese Wagyu, and popular Japanese super foods, such as matcha green-tea powder.
Soon Eat Asia will have an eat-in area, and a Japanese delicatessen. It will also produce its own matcha ice cream and Japanese-style pastries.
