I like this store and like also that it is within walking distance of Trader Joes.
The FM brand tuna in olive oil is wonderful, they use a very good quality oil
and the extra large FM brown eggs have the most beautiful orange yolks
and are really delicious … I’m a freak for eggs and these are better than many
farm eggs I’ve had … nice produce … terrific pork chops … good corn bread
a nice selection of oils, vinegars, spices, canned fish … fair prices … worth stopping for the eggs alone
The cheddar below is very good as well, a nice amount of crystals, not as sharp or crumbly
as I like but the taste made up for that
If you buy the Tuesday specials they should be prepared and consumed right away,
as opposed to freezing.
Whenever the pork chops are available as a Tuesday special I pick them up.
Regarding the price of the ground beef, I think you may have meant to type $2.99 a lb not .99
Personally I haven’t liked it the few times I went. I thought they were a bit overpriced, and I guess I just didn’t like the vibe. I can be picky that way. But you can get some things there that are not readily available in this part of the country like Dukes Mayonnaise.
I think it is Best Market that has those ceilings. I went once and bounced after a few minutes. I couldn’t find any quality items. The name is misleading.
I LOVE H-Mart. Crowded, a bit of a disaster, but excellent goods and frozen in general, and the produce, fish, and meats can be fantastic. Although the meats are Asian style cuts mostly. Which can be a nuisance at times. I can’t wait until the Yonkers one opens in 2-3 months on Central Ave, just five minutes from me. Oh, and their food court with Chinese, Korean, and Japanese restaurants, while not comfortable, makes some really good dishes. The ones that aren’t gringo-ized.
Although the new Wegman’s in Harrison will be a schlep for me, if, and or when it opens, I will have to go on occasion. I’ve been to a few upstate and they blew my mind!
Oddly, re Best Market, I don’t remember the ceiling freaking me out when I went to Morton Williams.
I don’t have the fortitude to drive from place to place that I used to have, so don’t get to H-Market that much.
Wegman’s will be close, geographically, I hope it doesn’t disappoint as ACME did. This time last year, I spoke to the regional manager at ACME and he promised all sorts of remodels and re-dos, and never came through. Sad.
